I’ve got nothing

Published / by Mary / 4 Comments on I’ve got nothing

Nothing to show, nothing interesting to share.

I got home last night and I’ve been in a frenzy – unpacking, doing laundry, packing to head back to Maine for a month, CLEANING my house which I have to say was a complete mess, putting the design wall away, winding skeins of yarn into balls, getting my hair cut….

I’ve got 45 minutes now until Keith meets me for dinner and my next post will be from the road. I’ll be glad to get into some kind of a routine if only for the month. Keith of course will be traveling and back here frequently but Chesty and I are going to stay put the entire month of October.

I’ve got my trip home booked for Wednesday and then on Friday, I’ll be heading back to Maine. I have a stack of tops/backs/batting all waiting to be tied although I do have a couple tops that need a wider batting. If I have room in the car, I’ll bring some from home otherwise I’ll get it there.

I left Maine today and rather than going home I made a side trip to Virginia. I don’t know if you’ll see any sewing from me this week but I might get a little knitting done and if I get the urge to piece something I can always raid Mom’s stash.


One scarf done

The red one still needs blocking but this one is done – it could probably use some blocking too but it will have to wait and I plan to wear it next week.

The pattern is Seafoam – a free download from

The yarn is fingering weight, knit on size 8 needles. It was hand dyed and gifted to me by my sisterĀ Deb and I think this was the perfect use for it.

It’s kind of hard to get a good photo, the beads look lighter in the photo above than they really are – they’re all shades of blue, turquoise, and green and go well with the yarn. For some reason the green is not photographing well – not in the beads or in the yarn.
