Maggie, I like the sox...very pretty! I, like you, think we've earned the right to be ourselves, different, however we like. I used to dress for style....now I dress for comfort. Be safe, stay warm!

You, as well, Evelyn.

Currently 21 degrees outside, with a wind chill of 7 ...wood stove has been humming along all day, doing what it is meant to do.

All of a sudden, it is winter.

Had my last needlework group today til the spring, and wore my shrug I finished a few weeks ago there, so that they could all oooo and ahhhh...which they did , and wanted to know where to find the pattern.

Nothing much going on here....skipped the walk with Lily today, will try for one tomorrow when there is less wind.

Sorting, packing a bit, pulling things together, looking at route planning south....


Maggie

Whew, this crocheting self lesson is not that easy. Right pinky is cramped, didn't even realize it was doing anything 😓

Got the slip knot chain thing going good. Ha ha that's the easy part. Hmm.. need to turn around. Second row starts to curl up a bit must be going too tight. The turn around's, next rows, aren't quite going correctly. Must be missing or misinterpreting something in the instructions.

Per the booklet I shouldnt be using this fluffy multi strand as a beginner anyway but it's what I bought.

Watching football does feels less wasteful.😙 More practice tomorrow.

Hey, that looks pretty good!

Yes, the multi strand yarn is hard to work with when you're learning, and I tend to avoid it, generally.

Looks like your first two rows were good, then you dropped a stitch at the end of the next two rows, which is why you're going off at an angle.

Perhaps try marking the last stitch of each row, after you've made it, to be sure you catch it...it takes awhile to learn to recognize those end of row stitches.

The nice thing with crochet, it's very easy to tear out mistakes and do the row over.

Have fun.

Maggie

Thx Maggie, I reread the beginner instructions again and watched some videos.

Couple of things I'm likely doing. I was not putting an extra chain, the turning chain on each end. And, as you said, I was missing the last stitch. It is hard the see, thereby shrinking the sides in.

The sides are still a bit rickety and not neat enough.

So now need I need to figure out how to refine the stitch. I'm not consistently going under. I'm going under one part of the V when maybe I should be going under both parts of the V. Either way seems to work but...not quite there yet and it needs to be consistent.

And of course I want to go in a circle for a hat (right away like Maggie &#128538. Not content with learning beginning straight lines. Patience girl, patience.

You'll get the hang of it....looks like you're still missing your end stitch some of the time, but not always.

If we ever get to camp together, we'll crochet.

Basic hats are very simple, but it's important to get your basic technique down..

Little house is cleaned, sun is shining, and wind has cut back, so Lily and I will head out for a walk here shortly.

Bud, her shedding has reduced dramatically.

I am very happy with the Shed No More product, and am already recommending it to others.

Maggie

I made another batch of ginger tea, this time with decaf, and put it in a corked bottle in my frig...reheating it a cup at a time.

It is yummy.

Thank you Maggie, I look forward to crocheting with you some day.

More you tube's. What an amazing thing with SO many tutorials.

I'm going for it. Will make a scarf and use up the 4 skeins of FLUFFY yarn for a self gift. That will help make my hands stronger, give basic technique practice and use up this yarn.

And most of all improve my patience, maybe.

Enjoy your tea, weather, walk and Lily.

A Different Life II

Hi Maggie
With the 2 Golden's we definitely have shedding problems & friend has told me for years to buy a furminator which is a tool that will thin a dog's coat & take off the loose undercoat. We'll the darn things are so expensive I never did. Before coming to the lake house this week Scott had the dogs groomed & furminated at PetSmart (we normally wash, trim, etc. ourselves) & WOW what a difference! I am going to buy one. No more loose hair when you rub them. Just thinking that use of this with the no more shed might really be a great combo.

Merry Christmas!

Jane

Hi Jane, and happy holidays to you.

I am amazed at the difference in Lily's shedding...so worth it.

Lily has never been professionally groomed, tho when she went to doggie day care once I week I had them bathe her occasionally.

She's such a dear...couldn't love her more, hair and all.


I watched this movie last night, based on the true story of an 8 year old boy...

Just to make absolutely sure and to re-confirm what I'd been told by a friend who is a vet, in another state from us I checked with a specialist at a new emergency pet hospital where our two dogs donate blood and our own vet on the long term usage and safety of "No Shed". The specialist and our vet looked at the product, punched some things into her computer and said, "good to go". "I am going to start recommending this product".

We too use the furminator, gets fur out, but can't be used every day and in our cold climate it thins out the undercoat our Labs have which is insulation and I am outside a lot with them.

Candles to go with....rose and lavender essential oils, in about 12oz recycled glass tumblers from Tuesday Morning.

Now that I know how easy it is to make these individually in the microwave, it makes more sense to carry in the Interstate what I need to make more, and just make one as I use them up.

Wood is hauled, and I've gotten myself a very efficient system in place...fill the wood rack inside to overflowing, refill my wheeled cart and one canvas bag from outside for the garage, for the next refill, giving that wood 4 or so days to warm up a bit before bringing it inside.

Frozen cold wood does not burn well.

Lily's had a good walk, I'm settling in to crochet for awhile...finishing up my last prayer shawl til I leave, to take in on Monday.
