Monday Rolled Around Again

Hi There,

Another rainy Monday.  In fact it's another rainy week.  All week long!  Oy!

Actually it did not rain over the weekend (much).  But it was windy and cold on Saturday when I met up with Dee.  We had such a nice time (as always).  And lunch was delicious!


I ordered a grain bowl.  It was wonderful.  Farro & barley with veggies and some dried fruit included.  And a few slices of red pear on top.  I was only able to eat 1/3 - 1/2 of it.  So filling.  Reminded me of meals I used to make when I was in college and poor and starving - lol.  My friends and I would cook up a bunch of brown rice and add carrots, celery, onion, etc. 

While Dee and I were at a coffee shop, I worked on the Barn Owl sock for Fletch, but I forgot to take a picture.  The Odyssey shawl saw a little love this weekend too.  I'm about half way through the second lace section and it is going smoothly (fingers crossed it continues that way).  Again, no picture - will try to get one for Unraveled Wednesday.

I'll leave you with a snap of this article that Fletch saw in a magazine.  Have a great week!

  1. Wow! Look at that bowlful! Bet it was good.
    I have some pet spun mementos--little coin purses. I blend it with wool.

  2. That grain bowl looks delicious! I've got beans soaking for a pot of bean soup on this gray and chilly day, and am not looking forward to a whole week of this weather (but still better than snow)! I have a friend that spun her dog's hair into yarn and used it to knit the brim of a hat, but the hat always smelled like wet dog (even when it wasn't wet).

  3. I wonder how much cat fur actually makes up 1 oz. I am guessing quite a bit.

    I'm guessing Giroux's fur wouldn't be very pretty. When you pull it out of the brush, it is a dull grey.

  4. I have so much cat fur I could knit a billion sweaters with it!

  5. I always laugh at those folks who want to save their critter fluff. I spend all day ridding the place of it....lol.

  6. That bowl looks delicious. Your college meal sounds like the rice I make for Dennis. He loves brown rice with lots of veggies in it.
    I once spun and knitted dog hair into a hat from a collie for a friend who had lost her dog. She provided the hair. She used it for her chore hat on her little farm. She told me that every time it rained it smelled like wet dog! It's a wonderful idea though.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  7. Hello, the grain bowl does look and delicious. What's a Barn owl sock? My hubby saved some of our Goldie Girl's hair, not sure why. It is rainy here too but warmer. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

  8. Several years ago, a friend was spinning her dog’s hair into yarn. I simply could not image it at the time, but it seems to have caught on in some areas.

  9. I wasn't that healthy of an eater in college. popcorn is pretty cheap, though. ditto ramen, nachos and jug chablis. It's amazing I turned out ok ;-) Holly doesn't shed. I think I'd be better off commissioning a batch of black/gray/white yarn and making something cozy to cuddle up with. Like a blanket!

  12. I actually spun the grey and very soft under fur from my Sheltie dog years ago. What a fun article! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  13. Well... I wouldn't want to be wearing anything knit with my dogs' fur if it was wet outside. Because my dogs do NOT smell good when wet . . . ;-)
    Glad you and Dee had a good time!
