We went camping at Mustang Creek October 7 the through the 9th. It was the first time nighttime temperatures dipped into the 50’s this fall. And the only fall like temperatures we’ve had. It has been in the 80’s all day since then. I can’t wait for our next trip.
Yes, there is even a picture of some knitting in there. It was hopefully for my swap partner, but shit happens and I haven’t picked it up since.
Did I mention I put the tent up all by myself?
Happy Thursday y’all!
Cheryl made me do it
I promise pictures when I use them.
I decided to give away all three prizes! First up:
Sarah! She chose the Baa-ble hat yarn and pattern.
Our Mo! She chose the Beaverslide and pattern.
So that means:
Cheryl gets the woven scarf! Free Joho!
Thank you all for playing along”
…my true love gave to me…
A weekend camping and mostly unplugged. Kind of fitting, eh?
I strolled through those first few months and WOW, was that painful!
I was a cross stitch blog, then knitting, then Squish, then farm, and then nothing for almost a full year. I’m not sure what kind of blog this is anymore.
My first blog picture
It seems like ravelry killed knit blogs. Most of the people I started following no longer have blogs. Margene and Cheryl are still around as well as a few of those North East people. Some people quit knitting. Some moved on to weaving and other crafty endeavors. In the past 12 years, I’ve met a few of y’all in person and I swear next year I am going to Alta to finally meet some of those Utah ladies.
Because I am in a mood, I am going to give away a prize. (I was a comment whore in the beginning, and I apparently still am) Leave a comment letting me know how we met (blog, Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, real life) and I will use a random number generator to give the winner their choice of :
1. The yarn and pattern for the baa-ble hat
2. A scarf woven by me
3. A skein of Beaverslide sock in Geranium and a Ravelry pattern.
Happy Saturday y’all!
No, really. It has been one of those days and I dug into the “what takes no effort” aisle at the grocery store.
What are you making?
In totally unrelated news, I’m selling my large punch needle frame. The tag says “swivel rug frame 11 x 14”. I paid $163, and will sell for $80 plus the cost of postage. (It is solid wood) If you are local, no postage.
So all you get is pj’s and Unconscious Mutterings.

It has been cold an rainy and I finally get to wear my Halloween pj’s. Yes, 70’s and low 80’s can be cold when we were triple digits last week.
Happy Tuesday y’all! Don’t forget to show me What’s for Dinner tomorrow.
Three days of keeping up with Rosie made me just want to sit on the couch and weave. Ok, 3 days of Rosie and two nights of not sleeping well.
There was no What’s for Dinner Wednesday because I picked up rotisserie chicken from Boston Market. Texas didn’t want to go to the gym after work, so I had to come up with dinner on the fly.
F.N. Pope (Fish Nugget) died last night, so I cleaned the tank and picked up Eric IV aka Quad Shot today. Fishy was a “rescue” fish, so he came with his name. With Quad Shot went back to naming all of our fighting fish Eric. The first two commited suicide and Trey (Eric III) was just belly up one day.
What are you doing today?
Because the thing I wanted to do today has been derailed, here’s a list.
Selected :: drafted
Sharpie :: organize
Campus :: college
Personal :: space
Wedge :: sex
Smoke :: quit
Polish :: Pope John Paul II
Ultimate :: Fighting Championship
Threadbare :: linens
NOtification :: mail
