Today's snow got me into the holiday mood so Ted and I decorated the house. This house plant I bought 10 years ago as a a small decoration for my desk at work has now turned into a shrub. We decided to decorate that too


Snow is falling on the Joe Pye weed and it looks beautiful. This is our first snowfall of the year. I love how it looks on our native plants. If there is one thing I have learned from this election, it is that I'm inspired to redouble my efforts to do all I can to protect our environment. And that includes the small work of turning my tiny Suburban property into a bird, bee and butterfly sanctuary

Finishing Touches

The last bit to do on this throw is to finish it. Right now I'm adding some blanket stitch while it's still on the loom. Next I cut this piece off and complete finishing process. This piece is over shot done in a traditional pattern called Wandering Vine.

It's Friday

Time to relax, watch some Netflix and do a little knitting. These pizzas are good.

As a Competitive  Knitter this planner is a perfect addition to my 2017 knitting strategy. It will be really easy to keep track of all my projects and where I'm at on my various challenges. I've used spreadsheets   in the past but sometimes good old pen and paper are the best solution. I've joined 3 challenges so far for next year and looking for more. DH  brought it home for me tonight. Very happy.

Where I work

Seriously. This is the idea of one of my coworkers and no. I  didn't discourage. I work in a university science department, kind of like an endless episode of Big Bang Theory.
