I'm spending Lots of time at home.

I have a sick alternator in my car and I won't be driving anywhere till I can fix it.
Funny how things work out- I really have wanted to spend lots of time at home cleaning, sorting and getting rid of stuff.
SO, Now I can.
Interesting -I manifested that, huh? Yep, yep I did....

40 years.... Not Possible..... I'm still a teenager!

Can it Really be 40 years since Armstrong landed on the moon? My Grandma Schufle was in 'Vegas that summer with us and we all watched the landing and first walk and all. After that evening she said "Well, I've seen everything now. I saw Hallie's comet when I was a girl, 1890 or so. We knew the moon was made of green cheese, and now I know it's not. What a world..."

She was in her 90's when she died in 1970, '71? She had seen the world change from rural to city, and move into industry. She had a remarkable life. :0)

Bogged down blog.

I have bogged down on posting "stuff". I had some great pictures, but no way to load them. Then I got bogged down with LOTS of work, so no time to blog.

I kind of have a little more free time at the moment so hence, a post.

What am I working on?
2 prs of socks -
1. Austerman Step Yarn turquoise colorway, "Back to Basics" toe up pattern from
2. Red Heart Heart & Sole with Aloe Green Envy, "An American in China" linen stitch pattern from

I finished my brown cardigan -Queensland Kathmandu Aran Tweed Yarn in Rust. The body of it fits SO well. The sleeves -yuk. I had a picture... I really did. I don't have a card reader to load it into the computer. Rats. Soon.

I'm still working on the Misty Garden scarf from Scarf Style. I'm using Mountain Colors Bearfoot Meadow Colorway superwash, mohair and nylon. It's a feather and fan pattern.Very pretty but it gets old after a time.

It's getting close to time for my classes to start again. I don't know what happened to this summer.

Addendum to this post- I joined the Tour de Fleece through Ravelry. I can't get the picture added to the sidebar here, but I AM in the Tour.

I guess that's all for now.
