My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Random Stuff

So, yeah. In case you did not notice, the very first comment to yesterday’s post contained the name of a movie that has Rhode Island in the title.

Michelle was the first to offer up Getting Out of Rhode Island, so she has won 5 WendyKnits patterns.

But there’s still plenty of time to enter a name in yesterday’s comments — you have til Thursday at 4:00 pm Eastern time to offer up a movie with the name of a state in its title and be entered in the drawing for the WendyKnits pattern of your choice.

I did a fair amount of work on Sandvik yesterday. And because Johanne asked me nicely, I am posting a close-up picture here.


I’m still hoping to have this baby done by the end of the week.

Here is something I discovered over the weekend:


Dove Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter. Like little nuggets of heaven.

Something else yummy:


Blueberries! Given to me today by a friend at work. Picked in West Virginia this past weekend.

Lucy could not be reached for comment because she was busy napping.



  1. It’s good to know Lucy has a job that keeps her occupied and out of mischief ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Yum–fresh blueberries. A friend brought me 25 lbs from Michigan a couple of weeks ago. I gave some away, made 5 dozen muffins, 2 fresh bb pies (my fav) and froze the rest. Now I’m actually contemplating buying some more to make another pie or two…lol.

    I purchased some joisey (pronounced joy-zee, for all y’all not in philly) blueberries this past weekend and made a blueberry cake. pure and simple, just blob some real whipped cream on top for a not-too-sweet treat! AND anti-oxidants too; what’s not to love?!?

    dove got chocolate in the peanut butter…or is it peanut butter in the chocolate? my nugget of heaven has either a creamy mint center or a liquid caramel center.

  10. Those Doves look divine!!! Yummy.

  11. Movies with states in their title:

    Raising Arizona

  12. I am so not a chocolate lover (my absolute to die for is See’s chocolate covered caramels)…..but two more suggestions: Bliss Raspberry bites and Ghirardelli’s peanut butter candy bar – chunky peanut butter!

    Another way to enjoy blueberries – besides on your cereal which i show I love them – or mixed into your yogurt – is to freeze them and then eat them – nice and crunchy!

    those blueberies make my mouth water – my older daughter went to camp in Michigan as a young teen & we always bought tons of fresh berries at roadside stands when taking her & picking her up. raspberries & blueberries – less than half the price charged in stores & so fresh & yummy. I also used to make freezer jam which IMHO is much tastier than cooked jam. DD’s camp group would go berry picking & come back to camp with blue hands & faces!

  35. Ohhh! I discovered those Dove peanutbutter chocolates a couple of months ago and they are yummy!!! I love fresh blueberries also. What a nice treat from your friend!!

  36. Movies with states’ names:
    Louisiana Story (1948)
    Green Grass of Wyoming (1948)
    Oregon Trail (1945)

  37. OOOOOOHHHHHH!! Dove chocolates and blueberries…my absolute favorite candy and fruit all in one blog!!! You are a woman after my own tummy!! LOL
