Sewing and Virtue

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

Nice day. Sunday school, which I'm leading and enjoying. Lunch with #1 daughter, the Good Ol' Boy and the Baby. The Baby was so happy and excited. She was beaming. I told her the story of Little Sambo and cooked chicken and zucchini. We then had a rainy afternoon and I worked a bit on […]

Murder Ahoy

Friday, February 16th, 2018

We had staff meeting today, complete with The Baby. I wrote my required blog posts, deposited my paychecks, cooked and cleaned, and then settled down with Ketch and a cuppa to watch this evening's knitting movie (part of this month's KLL assignment). This is a Margaret Rutherford portrayal of Miss Marple, in a story which […]

Goethe on Color Theory

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018

I've written a lot about the emotional effects of color for a client. There's lots of data on the subject, but I was never able to to find an original source or any scientific support. It's widely agreed upon, though — blue is calming, green is healthful, red is stimulating, yellow can increase creativity and […]

The Knitting Life List for January

KLL and Ketch

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

In the interests of becoming a well-rounded knitter, I've come up with a plan to make ´╗┐The Knitting Life List a challenge. Since a chapter a month doesn't work, I'll choose one item from each chapter each month. Here's my plan for January: Chapter 1: "Buy a color wheel" — except I just took a […]

Organizing Your Stash

Monday, January 1st, 2018

The first task for my Knitter's Life List Journey is organizing my stash. This comes up in Chapter 10, which seems illogical. I don't feel that I can take a serious run at becoming a more expert knitter unless I organize my stash first, so I am going to do this even though it comes […]


Thursday, December 28th, 2017

I've completed the back of Ketch, one of Amy Hertzog's Custom Fit designs. It badly needs blocking, and is currently nearly an inch smaller than the schematic says it should be. The blocking could help with that, or I could be an inch smaller when I finish it than I was when I started it. […]
