Table Rock Lake Getaway

My sister-in-law has a lake house in Shell Knob and we rented the cabin next door to them for the weekend.  It had a killer view and after finding it's for sale I found myself fantasizing about retiring and moving into it after falling in love with the heated tile floors, refurbished wood skating floor throughout and refurbished wood bowling alley countertops.

An eagle flew up the balcony as I sat drinking coffee this morning.

I hiked along the water's edge and picked out some driftwood to bring home to make a souvenir rustic tree for my front porch back home.

November Knits

It's that time of year that my outdoor activities move indoors with more time to sit, knit and build my flea market inventory. This season will be more hats than usual as that's what I'm in to right now. I am making several different styles and enjoy proving to customers that they really can look good in just the right hat.  There are also many headbands and fingerless mitts, too.

Flying W Ranch Retreat

The Kansas Knitting Guild hosted an overnight retreat in the Flint Hills at Flying W Ranch.  We hiked, drank wine and knitted the night away.  I spun a skein of cotton from the fields in Winfield.  Some very good stuff in my home state.
