A Bit of a Reputation

June 17, 2019

At dinner last month, someone asked each of us to name three things (not people) we couldn’t live without — not literally, of course, but those things that ground our daily life.

Mine were getting outside every morning by myself, reading in bed each night, and knitting.

That last item comes as no surprise to any of my friends or family — or blog readers! This weekend provided several pieces of proof.

My friend Marcia, she of the exquisite afghan, returned from vacation in Ireland with a gift for me, this whimsical project bag from Vanessa Bee Designs.

Piece of evidence #2 arrived via text from Michael, who must have been in an antique shop this weekend.

“Know what this is?” he asked.

The shadows and dark colors made it a bit tricky to decipher, but sure enough, it’s an antique yarn winder.

Friend Judy spotted this car somewhere on Cape Cod and couldn’t resist sending me a photo. I’m not one for vanity plates or really any car decorations, but I admit to being slightly tempted by this license plate holder.

What are your top three “must haves”?

    I was hoping I could reach out to you experienced knitters for some advice. I have just finished a sz 3 blue cardigan sweater for my granddaughter who is now 1 yr. It’s not assembled yet and because it’s the 3rd sweater I’ve knit her but the first cardigan I decided I wanted to do something new… I was thinking of lining it. Does anyone have advice on what the best fabric is to use-a lovely fun printed cotton or to stick to a very light flannel ….. ? I understand how to cut and assemble the inside garment but wonder if there are tricks / problems to watch for – for best results. Thank you in advance.

    Gardening, reading (or listening to books) and either knitting or working on decoupage projects. In the summer I’d get into the ocean every day if I could.

    First thing in the morning I must have a cup of coffee and watch the Today Show, next like you comes knitting and as much as I do a lot of reading during the day I have gone to bed without a book in years. I love the knitting bag! So cute.
