Since finishing Shannon's scarf, I've made two cowls (neck warmers), one out of the softest furry yarn ever, Carabou, and the second out of a yarn I didn't really care for but had started knitting with it anyway. Eh. Maybe it will soften up after being washed and blocked.

What to do now? Hubby is working on his audio book, adding snippets of music and station identification jingles to his words. And frankly, I need something to occupy my mind to block out listening over, and over, and over to his book. After 18 years of listening to production edits of radio commercials, TV commercials, and on-hold messages, I've become quite adept at tuning it out. He he.

So I thought I'd buy a blank canvas at Michael's Arts & Crafts store today and make little granddaughter Lexi a painting of her name to hang in her room. Hopefully it will come out well enough that her dad won't be too embarrassed to hang it. :) I'll post a picture, maybe, if I'm not too embarrassed.


  1. See, your problem is that you actually finish your knitted items. I just knit and knit and knit and somehow never actually finish anything!

    1. Ha, Pam! Believe me, I have plenty of those around too! But I'm getting better about finishing, mostly because I can't justify buying more yarn unless I do. I just don't have room for the giant stash! Lol.

  2. Knitting lacy shawls and now painting. Oh dear. I feel an artistic inadequate.

  3. So glad to see that the two of you are still traveling around! You are making me feel artistic inadequate also ;)
