Another Hat



Another hat under my belt! This yarn had been knit into a sweater, all done but one sleeve, when I finally accepted the fact that I didn't like that yarn in a sweater. So, once again, I unknitted and reskeined the yarn and now it is becoming Christmas hats and scarves. The good news is I don't have to go looking for yarn for the hats and scarves.

Pomegrate Eaters Rejoice!

This is one of my favorite you tubes ever! I LOVE pomegranates but don't eat many because the fruits are so hard to get out and make an incredible mess. Now get this: Score around the center, twist open, stretch skin a bit, hold half face down in the palm of your hand and whap with a wooden spoon. All the seeds fall out! Amazing! I'm eating these every day now. Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ7dk9nDR-k

Catching up!

Finally, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm actually catching up on customer quilts. I have been as far behind and 45, but now I only have 8 more promised before I take a Christmas break. Feels good! Here are 2 I have finished this week.

A couple of customer quilts

My First Hat

I searched until I found a very simple hat and then began knitting my very first hat. It was actually very easy, though I will switch to 2 circulars a bit sooner. It got a bit tight towards the end. The Yarn is Lorna's Laces wool and I love it. It was the first time using that yarn and will certainly try it again. Now to decide whether to make mitts or a cowl to go with it for a Christmas gift. The pattern is The Piper Cloche

Views from a Hammock



Ah, to be home and relaxing in the hammock in the woods with husband and Leviticus. All of us love swinging in the sweet autumn breeze with the warm sun shining down on us.

A Week in the Outer Banks, NC



Taken out our cabin back door. My favorite pic of the week.



Every morning greeted us with the most amazing sunrises. The colors in this one took my breath away.



From a walk up the beach.



My first living contact upon arrival.



Visits to local lighthouses.



Lane and me on our first hang gliding attempt. No pic of me available as Lane isn't the best photographer and a pic of my feet, the back of my instructor and a pic so far away, I couldn't be identified doesn't really give you an idea of how well I flew.



Ready to say goodbye.
