Peggy Stuart's Blog – July 2009 Archive (6)


It has been a great trip, and soon we will be starting on the return trip, which won't take as long. The trip from Utah to Indiana by way of Montana, South Dakota and Wisconsin was like going from A to B by way of C. Our trip home beginning Friday morning will be from B back to A, so we shouldn't take as long. It has been a great trip. The best part was the engagement of our DD (Karen) to one of the greatest guys we know (David). Seeing them happy together is a delight. Here's what they look… Continue

Knitting Adventurer Visits Mt. Rushmore!

This is our second night in South Dakota, but we are now at the eastern side of the state. Our morning was spent at Mt. Rushmore, as you can see from this photo:

Of course, I took my knitting along. Here I am, so you know I was knitting there:

Missing Spinning

As you read this, I am on the road, hopefully knitting in the back seat with Sunny, or enjoying the outdoors with the whole family. IF I didn't take my spinning wheel (my lovely, adorable, efficient and user-friendly Kromski Sonata), I am missing spinning very much. My thoughts drift back to my last spinning meeting at Linda's:

Making Progress

My CLC is chugging along. Soon I'll be ready to steek!!! Eek! Here's what it looked like before steeking:

And here is the finished CLC:

As you can see, it's up to the neck, and maybe you can't see that I've finished the purl row for the fold and have begun to work down the facing. Next comes the steek! The coilless safety pins mark the edges of the steek. I had them handy… Continue

There is a finish to our objects. Projects end, either because we throw them in the trash or because we come to some other kind of conclusion, such as a successful completion. During our quilting/knitting minigroup (aka "Common Threads"), my friend Kay finished the afghan she was making for a friend. Here is Kay (right) holding up her afghan.
