After watching my mom and I have fun taking classes, Nacogdoches finally gave in and decided to try rigid heddle weaving. ( I may be
enabling encouraging friends lately – hi Mo and D!) Even though I’ve taken the beginner’s class, she wanted me to tag along.
We stayed at the Post Oak RV park in the cutest little cabin. There are tiny houses for rent in the area and I may do that next time. I finished my last Spunky Club weaving while there, so I am back on track. (details here)
Nacogdoches got me that pair of socks in the upper left corner. How true they are. That bit of pink in the bottom corner is a gift from the lovely Maureen. Socks, hankies to spin and a project bag. I also recently received a pen from Cheryl that her husband made. That thing is ah-mazeing! If I can get a link to his stuff, I will share it here. He makes some beautiful wood projects.
Happy Monday y’all! I’m off to L.A. For the week. What do you have planned?
I was going to pose this Saturday, but life.
Our JessaLu has been blogging for 12 years now and if you go over there and comment, you have a chance to win one of her fabulous bags. Mention me and I get a bonus entry. 50 comments and she adds another prize to the pool.
I started this blog about 6 months before her, but there are a bunch of us from the “Class of 2005” that are still around. Some of us post a bunch, and some of us aren’t that consistent (because FB and Twitter and Ravelry or life).
I’d like to make a better effort to blog again because I would like a slower pace. Everything on FB and Twitter is instantaneous. I’ve shut off my phone notifications for both and have been making an effort to step away a little. I noticed I was reposting a ton of memes instead of quality posts. I really enjoy those “memories” that pop up every day and I’d like to see my life instead of something meaningless.
I’m totally not doing a “new year, new me” post. I’ve just noticed things in my life that I would like to change.
Like getting this weaving going. This will be the first project on Mama Cass. (Someone reminded me that I need to name my lovelies)
Happy Monday y’all!
There may have been some baskets too.
I’ve totally been slacking so far this year. (Obviously, since my 2016 wrap up is coming the end of February)There are a lot of things I need to buckle down on, not just knitting and blogging and weaving.
Here’s to getting shit done in 2017.
Or should I say Happy Random Tuesday in January? I’m being held hostage by the promise of someone coming to fix the air conditioning. Because it might get to 80F this week. Homie don’t sleep hot.
It is that time of year again. What used to be Cookie Made Me Do It has become Cow Made Me Do It.
So the Holy Mother of All Crankiness is making me clear out some of my WIPs and she made me cast on a sweater. In Noro. I must have committed some huge sin.*
I might, might, do a post of everything I finhed last year, but don’t hold your breath. What are you working on today.
Happy Tuesday y’all!
* I’m actually enjoying knitting with some bigger yarn and the sin may be blaming her. However, she drug me into mittens years ago and will never live it down.
We went to the same place, but alone this time. It was cloudy and cool and we spent all day Saturday around the fire. There was knitting and kanoodling. No kayaking or fishing because of all the cold. Cold for us wussies down here anyway.
We had been planning on doing a longer trip over Thanksgiving, but with highs in the low 50’s and lows in the mid-30’s, I voted that down.
If you noticed, I am wearing my Team Ever After Hat. Please consider donating to either of our Bike MS 150 rides. Even $5 makes a difference.
Happy Thursday y’all.
Because we all gotta have them, right?
Wax my wood
Assemble my new loom
Put October’s Spunky Eclectic project on the old loom and weave a row or two.
Figure out how I’m going to finish off my last woven project
Work on thing that was going to be for my swap partner, but I never finished.
Speaking of that last woven project.
Grapes and Coal – warp spun by Cookie.
Happy Thursday y’all!
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.
