Alrighty then...

One more project done.  And I can actually use these.  I'm also wearing something else of my own knitting today.  Winter is the one time I can sorta kinda get away with it.  And yes, I have court this afternoon - a shelter hearing yesterday held over until today.   After a rather long day at court and with my back screaming at me, I headed home to a really nice dinner John made for B and me. (Of course I had 'after,' but it was worth it!).  Anyway, with not much else I could do, I finished the Burning Love Fingerless Mitts by Dutch Mama and am fairly pleased with the results.  A little thing, but they are my own first pair I've kept for myself and they make a good deal of sense for days when you need the extra warmth, but need your fingers for driving, using the phone (NOT at the same time!!!), and other things. Also made a small inroad into the reversible cable scarf/cowl, but not enough to post a picture at this point.  We in Merlin were rather lucky as far as the we…

39 Bottles of Beer on the Wall.....

Sorry to disappoint the Canadians among you, but that was just a reference to the number of "In progress" projects I now have going on Ravelry.  No, I did not complete 13 projects overnight.  I'm good, but I'm not THAT good, LOL:). I decided to weed out the projects (1) I knew I was not going to get around to for a long while and (2) those that I hadn't even started yet, but had put up on ravelry as a sort of "space marker" for projects for which I had yarn at the ready. Those projects are now a part of the 97 I have in hibernation, to be reviewed later for completing or frogging. So the score is now 39 projects in progress, 97 projects hibernating, and 156 projects completed (since 2007, LOL). Not too terribly shabby.
So after blabbing away about the projects I have currently moving along, I did make a bit of progress on this, more or less doubling what I had done to get me about 35% toward the finish line.  If I keep working on this, I might have it …

Did I tell you I love to knit?

First of all, dear 2.5, Happy New Year:)! It's been a strange few weeks since the onset of 2015. I am sitting here, midday on a cloudy cold and damp Saturday in the not-so-wilds of the county seat of Central Merlin, Mid-atlantic seaboard state in the USA.  Our front hallway and living room are crowded with huge boxes containing auto parts that we are somehow supposed to get to an auto repair shop - the proprietor a friend of our son, Danny - so that one of our cars can be repaired from an auto accident in which the front end was pretty badly damaged.  The accident was not Danny's fault - and after a couple of months of dealing with an "interesting" attorney for the self-insured cab company that ran into him - we had a check.  They totaled the vehicle. We were not interested in giving up on a Toyota that continues to have a perfectly strong working engine. After a few months in Merlin, doing his gig with the Everyman Theatre company in Bawlmer, and a few other side gi…
