Good morning!


This is the second morning in a row that I have had coffee instead of tea. This could be a slippery slope! Proper coffee that I ground up, maple syrup and frothy oat milk.

I’ve had a couple of restless nights and I’m hoping the coffee will kickstart my brain. It tastes good too and feels very comforting now that the mornings are colder.

So, about yesterday’s photos. If you’re interested. I posted those just before I dashed out to work yesterday but I have more time now.

1. Knit Picks Dishie dishcloths or washcloths. A pick-it-up-when-I-feel-like-it project.

2. Gnomes! I made these no-sew, lots-of-hot-glue gnomes before work yesterday and took them to the store to put on display, just for fun. Obviously I bought the felt, faux fur and cotton fabric there. The insides are dollar store socks filled with wheat berries and polyfill. If you look carefully at the photo, you’ll see my Spring garden gnomes in the background.

3. The Festival Cardigan, complete with buttons. I’m keeping it on my couch because the temps have dropped to mid-teens outside. I love to snuggle in warm layers on a cool dark fall evening. I think this season has to be my favourite.

4. And finally, the Relaxation socks. This is a pattern I found on Ravelry. It’s written for bulky yarn but I’m using Bernat Pop in the Full Spectrum colourway and it’s working fine. This is my Strictly Sockalong 2021 project, which is a MAL run by Ali of Little Drops of Wonderful podcast. I haven’t made socks in a long time, and I don’t watch Strictly Come Dancing or even Dance with the Stars, but I do like a good makealong!

There you go, all caught up. I hope you have a wonderful day. Now I’m going to have a quick look at Ravelry and then I need to get ready for work.

  1. He’ll from Connecticut USA. I’m wondering if you can help me identify the yarn name I’m looking for. It’s pictured as one in the group photo you posted of loops and threads skeins (third from the left, blues variegated). I’m in the middle of a baby boy blanket and recently learned the color might be discontinued and I lost the paper wrapper. 🙄 Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

  2. I’m a little confused as the post you’re commenting on doesn’t have any photos of yarn in it, just coffee!

  3. I’m a little confused as the post you’re commenting on doesn’t have any photos of yarn in it, just coffee! If you’re talking about a photo from a blog post back in November 2019 where I showed off the Meandering Minis sets, the individual yarns don’t have colourway info. The set may have had a name but my Ravelry stash entry just says Blue. I posted a cardigan that I made with the yarn in October 2020 and now it’s all gone.
