Gramma's Pen

Saturday, March 27, 2010


This is a good day to stand up, gather up, wrap up and finish up a number of my interesting projects that lie around in nooks and crannies sadly waiting for my attention. It just does not make sense to have five half-pairs of mittens, six half-pairs of booties, all in assorted colors. Also I have a pair of sox down to the last toe and last two heels for my youngest granddaughter's birthday LAST year, yes, 2009. Elizabeth Zimmerman has directions for an after-thought heel in her book which I lent to CC and am waiting for its return. (Rediculous excuse, eh)? Then there is the marine blue nubby sweater that I've ripped back a bit because Freckles thought it was too uncomfortably long. Nevertheless she does wear her starry night sweater every morning on her two=mile jaunt, even though it still does not have its little twinkling stars. I do have GG's fuzzy aqua sweater ripped out, washed and re-wound waiting for a shrug for Jailgy...even have her measurements which I took from a favorite green shrug. add to the chaotic confusion, my friend Debbi just gave me a garbage bag full of yarn, Red Heart worsted which is the kind I like to use for kid sweaters because they can be tossed into the washer and dryer. Then there is the pair of water-colored sox that knitterykate made me that are now missing their heels. I do need to repair the moth damage to Freckle's pink cable-knit, too. On my list before Canada trip is Dolly's smocked dark blue dress that in wearing became un-smocked. So, now what am I doing blogging?


  • I think I have either ADhD or "startitus" because I have soooo many projects started. I have to tell myself, "now you have to finish three things before you start anything else." Does it work? No, but at least I'm disciplining myself!

  • I'm thinking brown would be good in a sweater for Butler. He'll be 13 months old around conference time, so a size 2 would give him room to grow over the winter/spring.
