It’s About the Green


Hello!  Thank you so much for all the sweet comments and “likes” on the arrival our precious granddaughter.  It’s been a very busy few weeks since I last checked in.  I was able to go back and spend some extra time with the Kids.  I cherished my “Gram Time” with the baby each morning while her mom and dad got some extra sleep.

St. Patrick Banner   I have a bit of green to share.


This is another waffle knit cloth, my favorite pattern, Sugar’n Cream cotton in green twist and a size 8 needle.  I needed something to knit during UK’s SEC tournament games and this was perfect.  At one point, when the game got a little close, I made a mistake in the pattern and didn’t catch it until many rows later.  It’s a cloth for me so I decided to leave it.  A few extra cast on stitches and the cloth is a nice size.


I found a draft post about these journal pages that was never published.  It’s all about the green today so it seems right to add them here.  The pages are in response to a Daisy Yellow Prompt 60 — #3: Green/Book Design.  Digging through the paper scraps and image drawers I found lots of greens for a collage.  Green paint was smeared with a plastic gift card for the background leaving book page margins.  Then collage fun.

DSCN3017And last, a wooden bowl filled with green cottons, wools and handspun.  It was fun gathering this collection together and reminded me that my yarn storage needs a major clean-up.

I am so far behind in reading blogs, my reader is overflowing.  I’ve decided to let it go and start anew.  I’ll be around to visit soon.  Enjoy your day!

  1. I’m sadly behind on blog reading too – which is why I’m a few days late commenting! I love the green dish cloth. Such a simple patterns adds nice texture to it.
