A Blast From the Past

The Space Between

My husband commented on my blog name the other day.  I describe this site as “a little about knitting, and a lot about nothing”.  He kissed me and said I “fill the space between knitting and nothing nicely.”  I thought that was a sweet thing to say.  My hunny has such a clever way with words, and he is never at a loss for saying things that just melt my heart.

What have I been up to?  A question that has been burning in your hearts, no doubt.

Scoreboard Cowl - Steelers

In the knitting department, I finished my third Scoreboard Cowl.  Who isn’t nutz about those Pittsburgh Steelers?  Black and Yellow.  The Killer Bees.  This year, I noticed a trend:  the team I pick has a losing season.  Next year I will knit one in the NE Patriots team colors.  I did something differently than in previous years.  Typically I delineate between games with a row or two in white.  This year I played with colorwork, while leaving the white out.  I wasn’t nuts about knitting with the three colors and this seemed like a cool way to show where one game ended and another began.   I am really pleased with the results and future cowls will use the same technique. You can find the details on my Ravelry page:  Killer Bees Scoreboard Cowl

Other projects completed in 2018 were Bodhi Knit Washcloths from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 7:  Ease.  If you have not had the pleasure of owning one of their guides, I suggest you do; each one shares a collection of knits from some very talented knitters with each guide based on a theme.  The Bodhi was one of the most addictive, enjoyable and portable projects I have ever knit.  The highlight of this project was having them shared on Instagram by the designer as well as the Mason-Dixon ladies!  I wrapped each cloth around a handmade soap from Merriweathers in Rhinebeck and gave them as Christmas gifts to my “knit worthy” friends and colleagues.

In other news:

Take a minute and check out the latest in “Razz…” and “Things I Love” for more on what I have been busying myself with lately.

What’s in my glass:  A Bourbon Negroni (look it up, it’s divine!)

What’s makin’ noise:  Oh, just 50 mph wind gusts!

Saint of the Day:  St. Tarasios – he was the first secretary to the Emperor Constantine and his mother, Irene.  Apparently he was a pretty big deal in his day.  One of the things he advocated for was that the practice of veneration of icons be restored in the church.  Personally, I would like to thank this man.  I love gazing on icons during prayer or meditation.  They are beautiful, inspirational and a tangible manifestation of the history of the faith.  Good job Tarasios, good job!

May you give and receive all that is good!

Love,

Regina

  1. Lovely cowl and super cute wash cloths!
    The wind has arrived here. I knew it would be bad when the electric company called to warn us of possible power outages. No fun at all!

      I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed knitting those washcloths and how many small balls of cotton I used up. I would finish one cloth on the drive from Rhinebeck to Long Island. White knuckling it and everything!
