When is the storm coming Wednesday

Four more rows!
I am so close to having this summer mystery shawl finished!  Well, finished with the knitting!  I have another shawl waiting in the blocking pile.  Now that the weather is turning, time to get some blocking done.

Still working on the bodice ripper
Older books seem to have smaller print and more words than a lot of the newer books.  I have noticed a lot of the recent novels have a lot of extra spacing on the pages to make it look like there is more to the book than there really is.  An excellent example is the Stephanie Plum series.

Ready to start clue #2
I got the first clue of the Fall Mystery shawl done.  I am ready to start #2.  I am using some vintage yarn from my late mother's stash.  I believe it to be some sturdy acrylic.  I am using large needles and hope this turns out big.  The colors aren't my thing, but I thought it would be a good shawl to keep in the trailer.

BFF Cowl
One of my Ravelry groups is doing a secret BFF Cowl swap.  I got started on the seedpod section.  Goofiest selvage ever.  But I am not going back to start over.

The show last night
We have some wonderful sunsets around here.  Our house is on the east bench of the valley, so prime viewing.

This is my WIP Wed, KCCO, and Yarn Along post for this week.

I have been sorting through my craft book and magazine collections.  I need to downsize and have put up a bunch of them in my Etsy shop.  To go directly to the book/magazine section click here.  I am also closing out my mini skeins, they are here.

Just for my blog readers I have a coupon code good for 10% off ANY purchase $10 or more.  LHBLOG10
I am willing to adjust shipping on multiple items purchased at the same time.  Thanks for your support!


  1. Beautiful knitting and a beautiful sunset! I just love your sunsets!

  2. Agree with you about the books:) It's like when you go to the grocery store and the package of cereal is the same size and the same price but has one-third less cereal.

  3. Lovely projectss!

    Here'e my WIP:
