Unraveled Wednesday - 10/18/17

Good Morning Everyone!


Interrupting the vacation posts to join Kat and friends for an Unraveled Wednesday post.  But first up, look who I met last night:



YAY!!!  Finally got to meet Dee.  Fletch and I met Dee and Steve for dinner last night and it was so good to finally meet them in person.  Can’t wait for them to move here…looking forward to showing Dee my favorite yarn shop in the area as well as a very nice cross stitch shop.  I can picture some coffee shop knitting sessions on the horizon – something to look forward to soon.


I know Dee has met a number of fellow bloggers, but she is my first “meet in real life!”


On the knitting front, nothing new to show, but the Nutkins are on my feet this morning!



Yup – our patio thermometer was reading 43 this morning and my phone was reading 36.  A beautiful Fall morning with a nip in the air.  Loving it.


On the reading front, I recently finished “History of Wolves” which I enjoyed for the most part.  Some of it dragged for me and some of it didn’t quite connect, but overall I enjoyed the book.  I also finished “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” and liked that one a lot and also “I Shall Bring Rain” which was a very fast read for me.  That book makes me want to go back and re-read “The Grapes of Wrath” which I loved.  Currently I’m about 1/3 – ½ way through “Dandelion Wine” which is a fun read about Ray Bradbury’s childhood.


So, what’s on your needles and what are you reading/listening to?


Now, I’ve got to get back to my “Morning After” breakfast (egg, bacon, avocado and cheddar on an everything bagel – so good!!) and my crazy, busy work-day.  Hope everyone’s week is going well.


  1. It's great that you met a fellow blogger in person and can look forward to some in-person knitting with Dee in the future! I'm also glad that the weather has finally cooled down and you can wear your beautiful Nutkin socks. I wore one of my Hitchhikers yesterday and was glad for the warmth as I haven't turned on the heat yet.

  2. Oh my golly ..... it looks like we are standing in a bathroom! LOL

    I'm so glad that you and Fletch could meet up. We loved the restaurant and we are both REALLY looking forward to getting moved up here and I'm looking forward to going to the shops!!!

  3. How fun that you and Dee were able to meet. I've had the opportunity to meet four bloggers. It felt like visiting with old friends.

    I just finished the audio book, Missoula. An interesting and yet troubling book about rapes on the college campus during the 1980s. It seems that attitudes about sexual assault and athletes hasn't changed much in our society.

  4. OH!!!! !You and Dee! Im thrilled

  5. So glad you were able to meet a fellow blogger. I have been fortunate to meet many, and it's always like No Big Deal in that you simply hug and get on with what you were talking about in Comments. LOL.

  6. I was going along just fine with your post and then you had to go and mention that bagel. Now I want one! Problem is you can't get a good avocado around here to save your life.

  7. Always fun to meet an online friend in person!
    Nutkin looks great!

  8. It's always fun to meet a blog friend in real life! Your socks look great -- although I must say that I'm always a bit sad when I have to put on socks again... :-)

  9. Getting to wear hand knit socks and sweaters is a good thing about cooler weather ... especially when you have newly finished projects!

  10. Nothing like a meeting someone who you already know! lol
    The socks were accomplished just in time! They look nice!

  11. So happy you were both able to meet up. I love Dee and Steve, they are great people and I know your friendship is going to grow.

  12. how exciting you two got to meet! That is awesome :)
