Back in Time - Kitchen Chores

Image
Nancy and Rosa S. mid 1980s I'm pretty sure my brother, Rich took this photo of Mom and me at the kitchen sink. It looks like we are peeling potatoes and preparing for the next meal. Since the Christmas salt and pepper shakers are on the shelves, I'd say the photo was taken in November or December.  Several generations of babies were bathed in the sink, and numerous stacks of dishes and pot/pans were washed in it over the years. 

Silver Linings - an Update

Silver Linings hat in progress January 2020 The Silver Lining hat ( started in December ) is progressing at a steady rate. It's mindless knitting, round and round in helical stripes. The color change is the opposite end of the double-sided hat. I love how the two self-striping yarns are creating an interesting design at this end. I need to knit about four more inches before I can start the decreasing. Hopefully, this project will be finished by the end of the month. 

Fireside Knitting

I found a great fireplace video on YouTube that I've been using on chilly and windy afternoons. The video has a 10 hour loop without advertisements, so I can comfortably knit away the afternoon. Many fireplace videos have music, but this one is just the sound of flames and popping logs. I love it!
