This & That

Still working the the perfectly plain light gray socks, first sock of the pair is done and have cast on for second. To satisfy my color craving also have the first sock of a turquoise pair started, much easier for me to work on the turkies.

Have suddenly had a big influx of blog viewers from the UK and Europe, love seeing where everyone is from but wish I knew how they all found my simple little blog. But still no new followers, old blog had 140+ but so far new blog is static at 41. But that is OK they will come when new blog is found.

Cold and gray again today in my wild mountain valley, with the furnace in main part of house still not working I dress for the occasion, woolies all around. Just can't knit with fingerless gloves on so end up shedding them when I get into the house for my Monday nite Football game at 5 pm. The small infra red heater is doing a remarkable job in keeping house up around the comfort area.

The vegetable soup I made on Saturday sure was an outstanding batch, had no trouble enjoying every mouth full. Sure do like lots of celery and cabbage in my veg soups.

  2. I came via someone on Twitter, one of the UK knitterati. I thought it was Woolly Wormhead or Kate Davies, but can't find their tweet now. If I find it I'll let you know. Incidentally you were sold as the lady with the lovely colourful socks.

    1. Ditto. I'm not a follower only because it involves Google, but I visit a lot.

    1. Cabbage, kale, carrots, celery, potato, simmered in chicken broth, then added home canned stewed tomatoes (chopped into small pieces). Lots of pepper, hardly any salt.

  5. Thanks Lynne! I love cabbage so that will be great. I'll have to try a bit of kale, it's not my fave, but I know it's good for us. I'll need to wait till after Turkey Day to try, but I'm really craving some soup. It's not something I've made a lot of....I do have some barley I could add. mmmmmm....
