Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

This little finger went to market --

Two cuffs, two hand portions, two little fingers, and two thumb gussets.  That's the status of the Glubs.

White and beautiful
We've had awful weather.  After a thrilling 12-14" of pure white snow, we finished the week with crippling freezing rain and power outages.

Frozen and treacherous, with trees and wires damaged.

Meanwhile the Glubs are progressing nicely.  Quite fun.  They look downright silly, though, at this point.  Just a little finger on each and waiting for the other 8 to emerge (6 fingers and 2 thumbs, depending on how you label the flexible digits.)

Oh dear, but this picture doesn't show the other little finger.
All the other things are there -- needles, fix-it tool, and
handy row counter.
Yes, two glubs.

Here's the silliest pic of all -- two little fingers waving at one another across the empty landscape of a waiting hand.
Isn't there some sporting team who uses this sign language?

Also working on some Mosaic knitting and finishing up the frilly ruffle thing they call knitting.  That scarf may just be long enough already -- I wouldn't want the wearer to trip over it or have to wrap it 47 times to get it off the floor.   I've experienced just about enuf of that loopy process -- pun intended.  Picture in next post.

Can you tell I am not enamored of this latest fad?
