5-31-2017 Helping Hands

A lady on the knitting forum
was having difficulties understanding and working
this dishcloth pattern
so I put it on my needles and worked one up
in order to help her thru the instructions.

5-28-2017 Why I Dislike Knitting Kits

Every single knitting 'kit' I have purchased and made
has left me short of yarn
so I've had to go looking for more of that yarn
or for something that 'matches/coordinates' with it.
I hate it when that happens.
I am neither a tight or loose knitter
but average...usually spot-on gauge.
When I buy my own yarn for a project
I always buy an extra skein.
But, when you buy a kit, you do not have that option.
You only get what they have in the kit.
And it's always short!
ARGH!!!
Okay, rant over...back to knitting.
I only have enuf yarn for one more row of gold,
then it's on to the blue/green/gold yarn
from my stash to finish section three.

5-27-2017 Morning Walk

Or morning walk along the creek was
so beautiful and fragrant this morning!

Duck Creek

cottonwood seeds line our path 

honeysuckle on the vine

wild roses...Iowa's state flower

This evening we attend M's graduation party.  :*)
She has been such a delight to know these past 5 years.
From the little girl who knit with us on Friday nights,
to the teen in high school
who is now a wonderful young woman
headed to college.
We send our love and best wishes with you!
