Between making turkey–to eat and not crochet–and spending time with family and friends, it’s a great time to rehash your year and all the wonderful things past and yet to come. I could be serious and be thankful for health, happiness and all my non-material riches (which I am), but I’d rather talk about our unifying passion for yarn.

I’ve been hearing about a return to capes and ponchos for awhile but I wondered about when the mainstream trend would arrive. Last night I read an article in my local paper’s style section called CapeMod.

Today, I’m sitting here stitching and listening to a great selection of music that a dear friend made for me. At the same time, I’m stitching on several projects and I find it’s interesting how the different sounds make me want to work on different things. I’m able to set a pace to my project.

Can’t believe where this year has gone…did you know it’s only 60 days ‘til Christmas? I’m in the south, we still have temperatures in the 80’s during the day, flowers and vegetables are still growing and I’m sitting on the patio thinking about what to make for the holidays. This is always a fun time around my house. Several years ago I decided our tree would be decorated with hand made items. Except for the lights & those few special gifts I’ve received over the years, everything is handmade with love. First thing I’m working on are the decorations for the tree.

Have you all noticed how much knitting, crochet and yarn references keep appearing on TV? This just goes to show how popular knitting and crocheting are right now. My recent fave was on the live episode of 30 Rock where Jack was trying to give up drinking and decided to take up knitting to occupy him. The shot showed a basket of untouched yarn and needles. In the next scene, they show Jack wearing a finished red poncho that he knit in the time since we last saw him. It made me laugh! See the live episode Continue reading “Yarn can be fun and entertaining too!”
