TheRain In Spain...I Mean..SanAngelo

Good Morning! It Has Rained in Texas!
Rain by Evelyn McDonald
Rain batters on my window pane
collects in puddles deep
and like the ticking of a clock
it lulls me back to sleep

The heavy constant rhythm
is like music to my ear
the drumbeat repetition
of the rain is all I hear

Silence for a moment means
the wind has changed its course
rain soon comes a-knocking
on the glass with gale-like force

The rain is strangely soothing
as it cascades through the night
washing the sins of daytime
as darkness turns to light

I wake to early morning
refreshed by summer rain
the ground is soft and silent
till it starts to rain again

So as it was the night before
it pours from Heavens high
I trace the rivulets of the rain
that fall to earth from sky

Content to marvel on the scene
Allow me to exclaim
the world would have no rainbows
if it were not for the rain.

Rock A Bye Baby!

Here's A Blankee for You and You and You!

Bonda and I have been BZ-Blankee Knitters! Bonda knits the Body and I Crochet the Edging.

Preemie Blankets are our focus as an August deadline nears. These TinyBlankees (18x24 inches) are donated to the local hospitals by The Fiber Arts Guild of West Texas...of which I am a member.

Bonda & Sue's Bond Pattern

Setup Bond with Plate #4 (worsted weight) and 60 Needles. Cast On with Waste Yarn...Knit 4 rows. Switch to Main Color (sample-cream). Knit 110 Rows. Switch to Waste Yarn...Knit 4 Rows. Remove from Bond.

Crochet Edge... Size G Hook - Right Side - With Main Color pickup and Single Crochet corner stitch Main Color off waste yarn. Pickup and SC each stitch across (60 sc). Remove Waste Yarn. Make 3 sc in corner and at each corner around. SC in knitted stitches down the side, across the remaining end and up the other side. Slip Stitch at beginning and change to edging color. Do edging of your choice. The blue edging is a combination of Half Double and Double done in the back loop. The outer edging is a chain with single crochet over the chain.
Knitting for Babies started with Knitted Sweaters to go with the Baby Quilts that I have made. Baby Animals, embroidery blocks in Attic Windows, is custom machine quilted. The sweater is the easy Five Hour Baby Sweater with a few SuCrochet Touches.
The Pink Quilt was made from scraps left over from my First Grand's Baby Quilt and it is HandQuilted. The Sweet Pink Feather and Fan pattern is from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. It, too has SuCrochet Touches. Both of these Sweet Sets are for Future GreatGrands.

Are You Missin SuKnitWitty in this Sweet, PerfectSpellin, NoNonSince Post?

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. One moment you're just a mother. The next you are all-wise and prehistoric. ~Pam Brown

Windfall – Websters (1961 and Online…somethings never change)
l.something (as a tree or fruit) blown down by the wind. unexpected or sudden gain or advantage.

YarnFall – A SuKnitWitty NewWord…
same as Websters without the fruit.

Here’s the WindYarnFall Yarn...
Once Upon A Time, two KnitFriends went to Lunch, went to Walmart, and went to third KnitFriend’s House to Knit.
Now, it was Mid-July…103 degrees...What do they have for Lunch? Enchiladas! Mucho Caliente!
It was so hot ….the Road was Melted…WalMart had Security Guards monoriting the FrozenFoods, Produce and MeatMarket.
"Keep Moving…Shut the Door…Ma’am, It’s WalMart’s Policy….Frozen Turkey’s Only Section."
Forget getting down the IceCream Isle.
Outta WalMart…Back in the Car…TempThingy sez 111.

Third KnitFriends House ….Cool!!!
Now, here’s the WindYarnFall.
‘I’m Clearing Out My STASH’!!! Take What You Want!!!
TheTwoKnitters….not wanting to look like MissYarnPiggys….Took Only This Much….

Curious about ‘YarnFall’ being a SuKnitWitty original (it’s not in 1961 Websters), I Googled it.
Yarn Fall….Every Knitter Needs One?
MissionFallsYarn….Every Knitters WonderWorld of Yarn.

Knitting in 103 degree Heat…Warped…Knitting YarnFall…Unexpected…KnittersYarn Fall...VeryUnexpected...Knitting with Friends…Priceless.

Blogger IdentityRevealed...Partly

Will the Real SuKnitWitty Please Show Your Face.

Here It Is! The Face Behind the SmartMouthed, BadGrammar, MisSpellin, HiTekie, KnittingJunkie, YarnAholic, '65er KnitWit.

Revealed now, only because of my ‘65er ClassMates. Something about…If the WholeWorldWeb can view Their 1965 SeniorPictures and Their 2009 SeniorPictures…and a Forty-Five YearOld Prophecy…..then….Well, Okay they have a point.

SuKnitWitty, aka Sue________ is in the local hospital. She stumbled and fell with the Olympic torch while trying to light her cigarette.
1965 Lobo Yearbook Prophecy

First of all….I was Visiting a TeamMate in the hospital being treated for Smoke Inhalation.
Secondly...She Tripped Me…I went down…Sparks flew…Her BigBlonde AquaNetHairDo….Well, you can imagine the rest.
And Thirdly….She was trying to light Her cigarette off the BorrowedBicTorch.

So, there you have it....except my RealName or TeamMates Name.
Some things about TheBlogger should remain a mystery to the WWWeb….and MyMom.
She didn’t know RitaKay smoked.
And I’m thinking…..the 1965 Seniors are beginning to have a few 2009 SeniorMoments!

PS...If Anyone knows the Identity of the ProphecyWriters....Just Drop Their RealNames in the Comment Box....Anonymously will be fine.

Is there such a Thing as QueasyKnitterSyndrome?
I was just getting over SSS (SecondSockSyndrome) when struck with this new KnittersDisease.
I don't know what else to call it!
There I was with SusanB-Knits in the BackSeat learning to knit from a CHART/GRAPH...
Yes, I know it's another exciting NewKnittingThingy...
When suddenly we HAD to PULLOVER!
That was the end of Chart/Graph Knitting,
work on Part II of KAL, and riding in the backseat. And I had such plans to finish Part II before Part III arrived.

So, it took exactly ONE week to recover from QKS....I tell myself that's the reason because that's how long it was before I got back to KAL Part II. When in reality I recovered that very same afternoon in time to eat Mexican Food. Priority' know!
Part III message is Flashing on Ravelry!!!....Wait!!!
Okay...Now I'm Ready.... for on this day of 104 degree the month of the State of Texas, her KnittingNest...Has Completed the NotSoHard ChartChallenge, and the SecondRound of TuffTuckStitch and...Yes!.....Now...Bring on Part soon as SusanB gets it figured out!

Lamkins has just about had it with this BeingBehind.
Especially now that She..ep knows that Part IV Message has been Flashing on Ravelry since Wednesday.
So, here she is ShowingOff our Part II and pushing me to get on with Part III.
She was not very sympathetic to my attach of QKS....
as I left her in TheNest to study up on Part III, when she really wanted to make the day trip to Buffalo Gap.
Oh I 'splained' to Lambkins...'Sheep Happens'.

Texas has it’s own language.
Just ask any Texan!

They’ll tell you Texans don’t have accents. You simply gotta understand TexasTalk.

For instance, in Texas all sentences should end in a preposition, and tho English is the primary language used in Texas, for some reason, you have to learn Spanish in order to understand it.

MAPS on the WWWeb? You know It! Especially if you Spell it Backwards…
S P A M!
Betcha thought this Post was going to be a TravelLog for SeeAmericaInJuly.

Nope…it’s too HOT. Not about SPAM either….just thought I’d show off my ReverseSpellnSkills!

It’s really about Kate, Elvis, Conway&Loretta, Francis, The Mickey Mouse Singers and others on the Playlist of Patriotic Songs. Just want to hear them Sing awhile longer.

So, for the Month of July SuKnitWitty will feature MadeInAmericaMusic , AmericaMap and July….which BTW…was not named for an American….but, in honor of Julius Caesar by The Roman Senate in 46 B.C.

Reading Maps…To put it Nicely…I’m Directionally Challenged! To put it in words of the Driver to the SuNavigator w/theMap…”You don’t know Snap from ShineOla”! Okay, my theory is Always TurnRight….that way UCan NEVER go Wrong…and, I’m always Right except when I get Right and Left confused. I’m getting the Driver a ‘TomTomThingy’ for Christmas…or sooner.

Enough about Maps….Okay...One more…I found this PuzzleMap at the AntiqueBarn. I think I can use this one to find my way around the USA well enough for a FewFeaturePost on States. Starting with…TEXAS…of course. Be sure to Navigate your way back to SuKnitWitty for some LoneStarStuff. If you get lost…try your PCTomTom…GOOGLE.

Now, JULY…named for Julius Ceasar...I’ll not elaborate…Everybody knows Et Tu Brute and all that RomanRumble.

It's A GrandOleFlag..ByMyDoor

From SuKnitWitty's FrontDoor To Yours - Salutations on The Fourth of July!

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, NOT with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." ~Erma Bombeck

My Patriotism will be showing way past The Fourth. Try these UnBelieveable Sweet All-American Desserts.
Be sure to ShooTheFlies!
