The Knitting Room Is Calling....

.....SuKnitWitty...Get In Gear...

Fall is Here, and I'm getting Itchy Fingers to

Oh No YOU Don't, SuKnitWitty...says my InnerKnitWit...All those Baskets of UFO's are STILL waiting!

The WIP's & UFO's will just have to wait! 
 Baby Bubba's Baby Surprise Sweater made last year for his September 9th Birthday is way too small. 
He's got to have a New Blue BigBoy Sweater!

I've decided on this pattern AGAIN!

Here's what I said last September about this pattern....

"Special Issue of Interweave Knits

Knits you can do in a weekend....for me many long weekends.
But, I was sold on this issue as soon as I saw the little boy sweater on the cover.
OMGosh! There's my Grandson Jackson on the cover.
He was two weeks old today.
I'm going to make that sweater in Vanna's Baby Yarn in blue and yellow.
I may start it tomorrow, cast on for 18 mo - 2yrs., knit really fast and have it done by December...2010."

Here's my UPDATE on that bold statement!  I AM casting on Tomorrow for 18 month-2years and start knitting really fast and have it done by DECEMBER 2010.....I hope!

'Quilta' Sews A Fine Seam

The Tidy Little Miss
Rebecca is a tidy maid.
Who's always starched and clean.
You see her sitting on a cushion
And Sewing a fine seam.
Now would you believe this little miss
Is always neat and clean like this.

 I saw this vintage book in an antique shop several months ago while SuKnitWitty was trying to decide to 'Quilt or Not'.   

Like Rebecca, 'Quilta' Gammill Quilting Machine...Sews a FineSeam, but not while sitting on a cushion.  Mmmmm, there's a part of the see, to sew that fine seam requires Standing and  a Shoulder Workout!

For the time SuKnitWitty can't bear to part with Quilta just yet...Quilta will Stay Shrouded...and...

I will sew a fine seam just like Rebecca...

Sitting on a cushion!

Thank Goodness for Good Friends, Good Yarn and Good Times!

Meet my Dear Friend Loredia!

She's one of the reasons SuKnitWitty is back to SuKnitWitty and back to Knitting!

She taught me to knit many years ago and introduced me to Bonda.  Remember her?  My Knitting Machine!

She has been my Friend for over Fifty Years!
Loredia....not Bonda...altho it seems like that long since I knitted with her...Bonda...not Loredia!

Loredia and I knitted together just yesterday!

And you'll never guess who came to Knit Along with us? 

Give Up?


We had a Monday Afternoon KnitIn!!!

I should say we had a SockIt To US Lesson!!!

As everyone knows...SusanB is 'The Sock Wizzardess... Loredia and I...alias...OneSockSue...decided it was time to finish a PAIR. 

You see, Loredia is also a OneSockSuePotts!

I thought for awhile I was cured of SSS...SecondSockSyndrome, but alas, it struck again even before I could finish the first sock.

Now I have given a whole new meaning to SSS...
It's now F&SSS...


I thought perhaps the 9" HiYaHiYa's would be just the thing to fix F&SSS, but as it turned out I've used them for everything, but knitting. 

I'm ashamed to say that I actually gave up on the Purple Sock and HidIt Outta Sight for going on 6 months. 

I can't believe I did that!  You See....

I'm No QuitterKnitter!

So BringItOn.....Again!

Thanks Loredia and SusanB
for the Push and Shove
back to
The Purple Socks!

PS...Dear SusanB,
I might have been a bit premature in giving away all my sock yarn!

April Showers Bring May Flowers...We Hope!

April Music
I'd like to spend
April, sitting on a hill,
With a mushroom for
a parasol and violets
for a frill. And the
wind for a violin, To
play spring tunes,
And the blossoms in
the treetops, For gay balloons.
 I'd like to spend
April sitting on a
mound, Watching for
the flowers to pop out
of the ground. With
their green silk stockings,
And new spring clothes,
Trying to look taller
by dancing on their toes!

The Splendor of the Rose and the Whiteness of the Lily do not rob the Little Violet of it scent nor the Daisy of it's Simple Charm.

If every tiny flower wanted to be a Rose
Spring would loose it's Loveliness!

Flower for the Month of April
The Daisy

Easter Season occurs in early April or late March.
Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar.

Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and penance.

This Cat Is A Real McCoy!!!

A Cats Motto:  No matter what you've done wrong, always try to make it look like the dog did it!

That sounds about right to me since I don't have a Cat! 

 I have Dogs and they don't need a cat around to make it look like they did it.
Altho, they'd probably like to have one around to blame for what they do!

Did you hear about the cat that swallowed a ball of yarn?
She had Mittens!

That's the Cat that I have.  Altho, she hasn't been Knittin any Mittens, but then neither have I.

Yep, this Cat's a Real McCoy!  Made by McCoy Pottery as a String Dispenser.  Mine is in the signature Pink Glaze that McCoy made popular in the 1930's and 1940's.  The String Cat was also glazed in turquoise, green and light blue.

 I really don't use this Kitty as a Caddy!  It won't hold a big enough ball of yarn for Knitting or Crocheting.  However, when string was used to hold packages together it would hold a tightly wrapped ball of string. 

 I guess McCoy didn't think much of Scotch Tape putting their Cat out to Litter.

I'm so glad it's time for Vintage Thingie Thursday and time to join Suzanne and all the VTT Bloggers over at ColoradoLady.

Do you know what you get when you cross a pole with a kitty?
A Polecat!

My ChaWiennies, Dolly and Ruby told me that one!  No Foolin!

So, Are You Ready to Sow or Sew?

So, how many ways can you spell SO?

Well, if you are SuKnitWitty and make up words with definitions to suit your needs, the possiblities are unlimited. 

SO...SEW...SOW, now let me think they are right back....gotta go Google!

They are Homophones!  Ya, know I completely forgot about that application for Homo and for that matter....Phone!

Whatever! So, let's skip the English lesson and get on to the SuKnitWitty Sew-Sow Post...I don't mean it's going to be So-So...or maybe it will as  I'm already thinking, "Sue, you are So going to mess this up, but here goes.  This is a Sewn Sign about Sowing!  So, why am I showing it at this time?  Cause it's time to Sow seeds So they can get Water during April Showers for May Flowers. 

Yes, I know the flowers on the sign are SewnYoYo's....that's why I skipped the word WEED.  Of course, if you are Mr. SKW, the weeding comes before the sowing and will come again when the flowering weeds bloom in May when the Sown Flower Seeds don't....bloom that is! 
His idea of flowers and mine are as different as Sew and Sow!

Or as different as Oranges and Lemons.  Sewn or Grown!!
No worries...No Orange or Lemon Trees to WEED.

PS...SO, now that we are all straight about it being time to SOW, SOSO on the time to Weed , and know  that Water Fall in May has a SOSO chance, I think I'll go SEW.  Are you wondering about WAIT?  Me too!
