Snow

I live in Waterloo New York, and I have about twelve inches of snow give to me by winter storm Nemo. (I like him in the movie, ain't too fond of him now!) I have to wait for someone to come and shovel me out, for I have spinal issues, and I'm a heart patient. There will be no shoveling for me.

The lads in the Northeast

I was watching the news tonight and they said that from Long Island to Boston they’re just getting their ass kicked with this winter blizzard tonight.

Basic Sock Class

Men
Saturday I will be taking my first basic sock class. I have a hunch that I might be the only male there. I am not worried. I spoke with the teacher and she is very supportive. It will be a small class of perhaps 8. It is being held at the yarn shop I do most of my shopping at.

Thanks !

Thanks men for the support and caring I appreciate it! I kinda felt this website was this supportive. I have taken a picture of one of the shawls that I mentioned in the blog. I made this one first for my mother. After dad passed away this August I found the shaw I was so excited I almost lost it that mom kept it all these years. I made it about 1974 or 5.

Ron's Dark and Stormy Socks

Well, I've completed Ron's socks! I named them Dark and Stormy for two reasons. One, because of the blue and gray colors, and two, because I am a fan of the Dark and Stormy drink (Gosling's Black Seal Rum, ginger beer and lime).

Why I like Knitting.

Well I am actually blogging about something I totally love. I don't know how well this will go over, so be patient with me.
As I have grown older in years (but not in spirit) I tend to go back to "better times" One of these times was knitting.
It was a "hobby" that I took up when I was quite young. Mostly to fill those lonely times at home.

Buttons! Get me buttons, quick!

Shamelessly copied from my 'other' blog, so that I can go finish my movie and make some patches for the manshawl I recently mentioned... the lovely folks at the nursing home got it caught in the bed mechanisms and ripped some nasty holes in it. (At least I know it's greatly appreciated by the one who counts!)
