DH and I recently told the 6th grade teachers that we feel we aren't really helping them - that it doesn't fit their schedule well for us to come in at a set time on a set day, so we won't be going to help out in that classroom the rest of this ... Read more
Ok, I learned what tready yarn is.....in the skein, it looks like it's about 1/2 inch wide, but you pull the width open to find numerous 'holes' into which you knit (and maybe crochet??)
I learned how to use that yarn and knit a 'ruffle-y' ... Read more
Babies and Yarn
Busy day at the shelter. Oh, yes, there was the usual cleaning of the kitten room, but I also took extra time with Socks and Cindy. They both have adoptions pending, and hopefully, won't be there when I go back next week. I'll miss them, but ... Read more

The Dreaded Shot
Thank you all for your patience with me over the past 4-1/2 months, about my knee. I got my gel shot this morning. I hate needles, and it was into my knee, so I was dreading it. Besides that, it's a gel, not a liquid, so I was fearful.

Today is opening day (and team picture day) for little league. The ball complex was every bit as crazy busy/crowded as I figured it would be. DH and I didn't go for the opening ceremonies, but we got there before Josh's team started playing. ... Read more
Skein, Hanks of yarn
Someone asked me what a 'hank' is, and when I tried to describe it, words failed me. Since a picture is worth 1,000 words - here's the picture. (on Spark Page)

Ok, so the ugly sweater is finished. I don't like wearing yellow - it's fine on others, but I don't like it on me. That begs the question of WHY DID I BUY SOME yellow yarn?!! I don't have an answer for that.
I'm on to crocheting Amigu... Read more

30-something years ago, after the birth of my youngest, the stitches rotten far too soon and I started hemmoraging. I'd lost so much blood that I was given 2 units 'push' - and let me tell you, when the blood hasn't had proper time to heat up ... Read more

Winter, knee, LPN state boards
