Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


How many ways …

are there to say this & that or bits & pieces? I’ve always gotten a kick out of the section in Barbara Walker’s Charted Knitting that she called “Uncharted Miscellany.” Anyhow, there’s been a lot of miscellaneous around here lately.

We’re still on a weather roller coaster, mostly warmer that normal, with the odd shot of colder weather. Lots of things are coming up and I just hope they don’t all get nipped by a big freeze!


I found this little clump of snowdrops at least 3 feet from the original clump, and I’m delighted they seem to be spreading! The flowering quince is also loaded with buds, and the variegated thyme is a delightful color; last summer, it was just green with white margins).

Quince buds.

Variegated thyme.

And the day ended with a really beautiful sky …
