These two... and Mae’s special request #frostingpullover !! Which leads me to this announcement - the little frosting pullover will be available in sizes 2t to 16y after the first of the year. Mae has nagged me about this from the day I finished the original for Knitscene and is currently pleased as punch.

Cowgirl Mae circa 2013 ... a little cuteness overload from granddad’s ranch.

4680 stitches and I’ll be ready to begin the border of this beast.
Will today be the day?? Yes, I believe so. 💪🏽

Morning chores with a view that turned my window panes into picture frames.
The kids were up and ready in record time and Mae was so excited about the prospect of being at school early. Just as we exited the highway she gasped, I don’t have shoes! 😳 Alizah did some quick thinking and called a friend in the city that had some chucks in Mae’s size. Honestly, even though she ended up being two minutes late, I felt like that was some big winning 😂

I’m getting my work on today while the neighbor’s kid takes over downstairs. I’ve learned she’s a pizzatarian but other than that, she’s content without my meddling mom ways. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Admittedly, I appreciate a kid that can be content doing their own thing.

When @threadpanda first suggested @blueskyfibers brushed suri for the #frostingpullover ... I wasn’t totally sold on the yarn because it’s so floooofy. I didn’t know if it was quite my style but then I finished the pullover and it immediately became my most beloved piece.
Working on samples for my new book and I found my way back to this scrumptiously soft fiber. 💕

Nate strummed a guitar and said - oh this is a little sharp! Mae responded with - why, did you cut yourself? And we all howled with laughter. Happiest 11th birthday to one of the funniest kids I know. Our lives were forever changed by you 💕

Check out this weird little egg! It’s really rough to the touch.... I’m wondering who is responsible. Also, the three youngest are nearing their 6 month mark so, come on now, tick tock.

I actually paid a visit to my website today and blabbed a bit about a few of my favorite anti-inflammatory herbs and oils.
I spend a lot of internal time on managing my Lupus in constant assessments of my body, mental function, and fatigue - these are a few things that help ease the physical manifestations - and growing what I can gives me the freshest, most volatile ingredients possible. Since getting off scripts, and making the change to a variety of internal and external herbal aids, I have had fewer flares that haven’t lasted more than 5 days. Dig deeper, reach further, work harder, reap the wealth.

We came across this pic of my mama and her papa last night ... I told her it needed to be framed immediately. By the time I came along, his tattoos were faded and covered in thick, white hair but his eyes were just as icy blue - a middle Italy gift that never made it past my gran’s stubborn Sicilian genes. 💙

Yesterday was sun-drenched and warm, today is misty, wet, and cold. It must be October. I’m making great progress today on number 5/20 with a little help from the @lorepodcast hole I stumbled into this morning 🙊

Totally amused by hubs flipping pages and commenting, “oh these rope baskets are cool... this salted caramel apple pie sounds good... they show how to re-season cast iron!...” 😂

Mmm mmm mmm happy mail day.
Also, if you haven’t put in your order for this hunk of magic, you probably should. Currently feeling a bit overwhelmed and honored to be included in such an impressive collection. 📸 cred for Cicely @mpasley

My beautiful fire-haired girl landed in NYC this morning. She has already lost her wallet with her ID and debit card in New Jersey, which, ironically, is printed on her shirt in this pic. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m gonna say her trip will surely get better from here!!

I might be breaking a record for number of pieces test blocked in a row... so, while that situation is going on I have to play with this yummy yarn. Dammit. 5/20

Case of the Mondays? This should help cheer you up.
Family is in town from far and wide and the girls finally had the opportunity to meet my youngest cousin. To say they all hit it off would be an understatement!

The old boy’s age is starting to show and these past few days have be tough. By mama’s side is where he seems to want to be and so we are. Hubs even forfeited his side of the bed last night so that big brown could stay beside me 💛 4/20
