Yarn a Plenty, I'll Drink to That!

Started another scarf.  I really love this pattern. This is my 3rd one.  The first one I actually made for myself........something I rarely do.
Love the colors of the one I made for myself, but it's tucked away now until fall, as it's finally gotten to nice to want to wear a scarf/shawl.

The 2nd one I made for a friend, who likes gray as she says it goes with everything.

This 3rd one, is for another friend, who loves everything Buckeye.  This is made with sock yarn, so it's going a bit slower and will be smaller when finished, I think.  The two previous scarves were a bit easier to work with due to using size 8 needles vs the 4's I'm using with this sock yarn (that has lots of silk in it).  Currently 17 points.  With the other yarn (which the pattern was written for, 25 is about what you get for the full cake of yarn.  So, will see how this pans out with the sock yarn, which is slightly less yardage.


This is yarn I purchased while in the Pacific Northwest on a recent trip with my daughter.  Love both colors and am trying to decide if I want a scarf from each one, or ........I want to double the base and make one larger with both cakes?
Thoughts?  It too is a lighter, more like the current weight yarn I'm working with.


I spotted this the other day, and thought WOW...someone is really good with photoshop, thought it worth a share...with all the talk of late about Sarah leaving her position.  Seems appropriate she leaves, she certainly didn't do her job anyway.  No real question and answer periods, no regular briefings etc.  And the others ...it would be funny if it weren't all so sad to have such lack of appropriateness in our government.


Wine Country.  A fun and funny movie I just watched while on said trip with my darling daughter.  We really enjoyed it, as we toured several wineries there in Sonoma...so this seemed very timely.  You no doubt notice several characters from Saturday Night Live!  If you watch, let me know if you liked it.  Be sure and pour a glass while you're at it.

After above post, I visited all 29 blogs on my blog list (plus one extra that was suggested by one of the 29).  I would like to encourage bloggers to check their settings to allow name and url instead of just google....truly folks it's a HUGE time saver.  All explained in previous post.

  1. Love the start of your new shawl. Honestly, I got so tired of the problems I had posting comments (not just here but others too), I just gave up and now use Google. One click and done. Easier for me but harder for you. Sorry!

    1. Yeah it's several extra clicks when it's google only. On our page I have to use a fake email, cause even though it's been years ago I had a blog for a short time on the same format as your blog, and it's been deleted for YEARS, if I use my real email it wants me to sign into that old dead account. So many issues across formats, you'd think they could improve it, lol. Thanks on the shawl.

  2. It's good to find a pattern that you enjoy so much that you return to it, the shawl's lovely. I'm contemplating making a larger shawl at the moment too, something that I can really wrap up warm in when winter arrives.

  3. Dear Sandy
    That is a lovely shawl. I do like the blue yarn you bought too. It's always nice to find a project you enjoy and want to make again.
    Best wishes

  4. Technology today allows people to put faces on any body and it is supposed to be indistinguishable. Scary thought really.

    1. The idea can be scary, but obviously with something like the above picture everyone would know it's not real. But, like the fake video of Nancy Pelosi a week or so ago, making her sound drunk by editing it...that was really hard to tell until the real one was posted. Stuff like that will be a problem in the coming months I fear.
