Unfinished Knitting January 9, 2018
Unfinished object – I need help to get the sleeves fitting neatly – and I need to work on the neck
Another unfinished object – it’s easier to work on this puzzle than to figure out what I have to do with my knitting

Two Years Ago January 5, 2017
I randomly found this photo this morning when I sent birthday wishes to one of my nephews. I suspect the photo is from 2 years ago. The clues are the cat (Katerina), the cushions and blankets on the sofa, what I am wearing and the scarf I am knitting. Katerina is no longer as affectionate. She tends to find a place at the other end of the sofa. She is definitely not a lap cat. I happen to be knitting scarves again 2 years on. I still have the purple polo neck and wear it often at this time of year BRR
Here are the latest scarves. I like purple.
A Beautiful Morning January 1, 2017
A beautiful morning to start the new year 2017. We had a dusting of snow last night and welcome sunshine this morning.
my latest scarf on display
And my favorite bird, the Northern Flicker reappeared for the fist time in about a month
Steller Jay – ever present
and of course a squirrel, entertainment for the cat
More Shopping At The Yarn Store December 24, 2016
I’m working on a cap-sleeve sweater sort of choosing colors and making up the pattern as I go along. Pictured is the back just beyond the decrease for the armholes. I’m a few inches further along on the front. I was about to run out of the green so I chose more of the green – and a different shade of brown.

p.s. I should be writing Christmas cards instead of knitting or exploring my genealogy.
