Ishbel

No this is not a April’s Fool’s joke… I finally have my very own Ishbel.  This is in Miss Bab’s Yummy and I may have about 10 yards yet.  The color was Violette.  I should remark that this yarn bled a lot… I had to rinse it and rinse it.  I finally added vinegar to [&hellip…

A Trip to the Frog Pond

Well unfortunately I had to frog Longshadows.  Somewhere I got the numbers off and next thing you know a hole.  I think too much time had past between knitting sessions.  Ugh!  Remember it here… Well it’s now back in ball state.  I think after I finish the Fountain Pen Shawl I’ll try it again.  I’m [&hellip…

Ruffle My Top Knot

Poor Max needs a top knot trim.   Every groomer we’ve had loves to leave his top knot high.  The only problem is it falls over when it gets to long.  They have a standing appointment at the groomer every 4-weeks.  This time its 5-weeks because they have a dog show to go to, so their [&hellip…

198 Yards of Heaven

Look!!! Two finished objects this month so far… whohoo… This is a lovely free Ravelry pattern – 198 Yards of Heaven. I used some love Karaoke that was a gift from my two knitting buds — Beverly and Dawn.  I have two more balls that might become another one of these…because it’s perfect size to [&hellip…
