Stash Bashing

We moved from Delaware to Pittsburgh at the beginning of the year, as you know.  It included a lovely thing called Corporate Movers ... two strong young men come into Your House, pack it into boxes, move said boxes onto Big Truck, and deliver said boxes to New House.  Delightful!

I spent this weekend unpacking all the boxes marked FABRIC and YARN.  There were lots of them ... and I do mean LOTS.  I have NO problem weeding out dislikes/duds and passing them on to fellow knitters/quilters but there were none.


So I am resolved to knit and quilt from my stash until it is gone and I think that just might take a lifetime.  :-)  Immediately I cast on a pair of socks using Kangaroo Dyer Sock Yarn that I purchased from Webs.  I'm winging the pattern as I go ... first a little bit of 2 x 2 ribbing with a leg of mock cables.  That is what makes knitting fun!

No progress has been made on the crocheting front though I did buy a new extra room tote for my larger blanket projects.

Rainbow Grannies is almost done.  Less then one row to attach and then a border.  Oh, the border ... I always get hung up there.  =)

And check out what a handy windowsill I have!  It has the perfect overhang to attach my small yarn swift and ball winder and to set my milk glass vase of straight knitting needles.  

Love always,


PS - Sorry for such dark pictures.  I'm emailing myself pictures from my phone until Mr. K gets all the electronics set up properly.

Puttery-Muttery Monday

Abigail and I kicked off the first day of Spring Break by staying home ALL DAY in our JAMMIES.
We both puttered -- Abigail in her bedroom reacquainting herself with all her dolls and yours truly in the kitchen.

  It was absolutely lovely, lovely, lovely! 

Home-made pizza, sauteed onions and peppers, and corn casserole -- tonight's suppers and future lunches.

One of my favorite things in my new kitchen is the refrigerator.  As you can see it's really nothing fancy but I adore how efficient it is.  It's the older style with wire shelves which I find so much easier to keep clean.

I'm quite proud of myself for figuring out how to switch the door and handles around so that it was hinged on the right.  =)  

Thank you for all the lovely "Welcome Back" comments.  They make me feel all warm and happy!

Please Blog

A dear reader posted that on my Facebook wall this evening.  So what does one blog about when they haven't written a jot or tittle since January, but has SOOOOOO many things she wants to share with you?


In the midst of our move to Pittsburgh, I knit Abigail her very first pair of socks.  Why I had not done this sooner is beyond me ?!?!?!  They were super fast (completed in just a couple days), super cute, and super loved (look at that face).

On the fiber front, my sewing/yarn wall is coming along very nicely!!

Mr. K and I are sharing a room again in our new home.  He gets one wall for his desk and bookshelves.  I get the opposite wall for my sewing table and yarn/fabric shelves.  Very fair, don't you think?  =)

If that doesn't get creative juices flowing, I don't know what will!!

Love always,
