Cast on

Since there’s nothing to show in the sewing room — I continue to piece triangles and I’ve loaded and started one of the t-shirt quilts that I’m helping Mom with but haven’t finished it – I’ll show my knitting again.

I shouldn’t bother saying what I’m going to work on next because it seems to change more often than not. I decided I wanted a project with shorter rows to work on after my surgery (Thursday) so it would be easier to pick up and put down.

Easy Multi Rib scarf – free pattern on Ravelry

Yarn is Miss Babs Yowza but I’ve lost the tag so I don’t know the colorway.


I’ve finished the Catherine the Great audiobook and have moved on to The Oregon Trail by Rinker Buck.

We’ve got a contract on Big Canoe but until we get past the inspection on Monday I’m not counting my chickens … we’ve done a lot of work and the appliances and HVAC systems are all new but it’s still an older building so we’ll see. It’s a cash buy and they wanted to close on July 16 at first but last night the realtor said they would like to close sooner as in June 29th … timing sucks because I really needed to make another trip to clear the last of the personal stuff out but Chris and Becky are going to help so assuming the inspection goes OK, we should have it sold in 2-4 weeks. I was afraid that I’d be sad but we’re ready to let go of the challenges of managing a vacation home in a different state especially since we don’t get there often enough to make it truly worth the money we spend on it

Best of all, Keith comes home tomorrow!



  1. Great photo!! Keith is always happy — Mo is adorable! Love your new scarf project — but you knit so fast that you might finish it before Thursday, so pick out your next skein! And you don’t have to agree to June 29th if you are not up to it.

  2. Congrats on the sale of Great Canoe! Hope it closes on schedule.

    I loved Rinker Buck’s The Oregon Trail…hope you do, too.

    Hope all goes well on Thursday…sending hugs!

  3. Hooray for getting to see Keith today and on the potential sale of Big Canoe. Timing on the sale is bad, but hopefully all will work out for the best.

  4. I hope the sale goes through without any problems. I’m sure you will be very happy to have Keith home again. Best wishes on that upcoming surgery!

  5. I just finished The Oregon Trail by Rinker Buck and really enjoyed it. Always looking for a good book. This was new at the library.
