New, Attempted Murder and Shoes


The Iknead iPad swap is complete and both of us are well satisfied.


I took possession of his old one and both of us are busy learning the ins and outs of our newest gadgets.


Yesterday, while I was happily spinning away, I looked into the hallway and saw that Josie was very busy trying to “kill” what I thought was one of her toys.  She loves squishy and has a toy box full of assorted soft, floppy toys.  On closer inspection, it wasn’t a toy at all, it was MY IN-PROGRESS HITCHHIKER SHAWL!!!!!!  I whipped out my phone to take a pic to post to Dogshaming; she wasn’t even ashamed enough to stick around for the photo.  That’s a Pug for you.  Luckily, no damage was done, except for pulling a bit of the yarn off the skein, it does have a whiff of Josie drool, but a little airing should take care of that.



My week 17 completed project for The Documented Life.  This challenge was to draw or photograph my favorite pair of shoes.


I can hardly wait for the next one! Visit their website for more awesome!

WIP Wednesday, Booklove and TDLP Obsessed


Newest WIP is another Hitchhiker, in Sachet Patons Lace that I picked up I don’t know when on a Hobby Lobby run.

I’m really liking the way this is knitting up.

Socks on a Plane are still on the needles, but have grown not a bit in the last week.  Tomorrow, I keep telling them, just hang on.  So, yes, the crazy yarn lady is talking to her unfinished socks now…..


102 pages in and it has me walking extra miles on the treadmill.  That’s how fantastic this book is, a repeater, for sure.  I’m so glad I bought this instead of checking it out at the library, it’s a book to be savored.


I got my first challenge for The Documented Life project completed and posted; the challenge was to use a cardboard food box in an unexpected manner; this is what I came up with –

The new challenge for Week 17 is on the drawing board.  I’ll be sharing it soon, meanwhile, check out it out, don’t be surprised if you find yourself drawn in and then obsessed.  Everyperson Art.  Love. It.

FO Friday 11/22/13, It’s Here!!


Hitchhiker is finished!  This one is, at least.  I started another one about a month ago, which is coming along, though slowly.  Sorry for the pics, it’s rainy today and Mr. Iknead and I are having new siding put on the house, which means that where I usually take pictures is overrun with sawhorses, siding, ladders and construction type guys hammering and sawing.

Here, you can see the subtle color variations.

Just barely fitting into the frame.

I love it!
