If I can just make it through this week....

You may have noticed I haven't blogged in a really long time! I really don't know where the time has gone, I must admit I have been using Facebook as a way of communication, but it's only a quick fix.

Every week since January has been fillled! The shop, home, family and life in general. All good things, we are all fine!

It's time to catch up! I will try this week to get a couple of posts done!

Today I am in the waiting room of a car repair shop as the car is in for an oil change, the iPad remembered the wifi password!

I brought a bit if knitting, homework this time as it's a shop sample.

The yarn is a new gradient cotton blend, Sping Rainbow from Katia. One ball makes a lightweight summer scarf wrap.


It took me the rest of the week to figure out how to get this one photo onto the page!

Needless to say I won't get much blogging done this week, bear with me!

Thanks everyone for waiting...

Long time!

The blog has been silent for a long time, I am not sure where all the time has gone.  Days in the shop are busy, homelife has been hectic too!

As you may know the well at home went dry, I am happy to report that after drilling for almost 3 weeks we now have lots of water.  Our front lawn however looks like a giant rodent has run a tunnel through the grass.  Good thing The Girl and The Boy are both experienced landscapers it will be next spring before we can make everything presentable again.

The shop celebrated its 8th Anniversary and we are making plans to make our 9th filled with new and  better learning opportunities.  Our Knit a long Mondays have been popular. The first Monday of every month we meet at the shop and begin a new project.  I try to pick something relatively small with a new technique, knitting only however.  So far we have covered cables, working in the round and thrums.  Next month. (January 9th) we take on a project that uses 'magic loop'.

I wrote the previous bit a while back, somehow finding time to fit everything into the day has been a challenge.

Christmas is done and the New Year begins, we will try to do better in 2017!

This is the year that I want everyone to challenge themselves to a 'Fearless"  project.  Try something new, take a small step or a giant leap!  Knitting is not brain surgery, it is very forgiving!

See you Soon!
