Odometer reading as of this morning:

Basil is getting to be such a big boy!

Speaking of getting big, my shawlette is growing.

I expect it to be completed by my next blog post.

Lucy is striding purposefully towards the camera:

    Damn, you get up early!

  7. She moves?!?!? It’s kinda like having a living objet d’arte around, she’s so lovely. Hmm, that may be why she poses with your FOs: just to “dress” them a little!

  8. I think when your car hits 4,444 miles you should take a photo at 4:44 am : )

  10. Hello Wendy,
    I love reading your blog and was wondering if you would like to do a blog post about North Light Fibers or do a review of our yarn.
    Please let me know if you would be interested.(Just shoot me an email and we can discuss the details)

    I love to knit socks, however I have had some difficulty sorting out the loops when I do the Kitchener stitch to close the toe in an invisible manner. I have spent hours trying to sort out ohe mess of loops I had made. I can’t possibly be the only one who is stymied by the supposed simple procedure. Well, I decided to solve my own problem which I did. I bought a few set of lockable stitch markers with a little surface area on them that can be written on. I picked the Clover markers in orange and aqua that are available a knitting supply stores everywhere. I numbered the markers from 1 through 30 with a permanent fine tipped pen. The stitch markers rs are still usable for their original purpose. Before I start To finish a sock with the Kitchener method, I line up my markers in numerical order, open and ready to use. I start the procedure and as I pull through each loop loosely, I attach the next number marker to indicate the loop number. #1 marker goes on loop one, #2 on loop two, etc. After all the loops are made and markers are attached, it is quite easy to pull marker number 2 to tighten loop 1, pull marker #3 to tighten loop 2 etc. Removing the marker on the tighten loops as you go. Easy, Peezy. I know you usually work your socks from the toe up, but this method helps for the cuff down toes. Hope it helps some other knitters, who have had the same problem as me.

    Back in early October, you set aside a lace tunic you had been working on. I recall that it was in Hand Maiden Swiss Silk in the “Raven” colorway. I was quite taken with it and planned to knit it when you finished the pattern (This is a major undertaking for me, because lace is not my native language), but so far, no luck. Any chance you might revive it?
