In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Tuesday Ripple

Lawdee, Lawdee, Lawdee!!!
Last Tuesday was a mess!
First of all, Groovy Girl was trying to talk Granny Bee out of making slippers that would fit "Big Foot!" Granny Bee kept insisting she needed big slippers because she wears socks under them.

And Mrs. Coke was just trying to make her second slipper. What started out as a little knot

turned into this!

What the H?

The rest of us were trying to decide if I should add another shade of gray, which we decided I should not, after I stitched a few ripples of it, and did not get a picture.

"K" decided to work on her ripple, which is starting to become a bit annoying because she finishes everything first.

Just look how long....then "K" stuck her fingers in the yarn mess

while Groovy Girl said, "NOTARO (aka Granny Bee) Give me that yarn"......and proceeded to make a slipper for her that fit like Cinderella's glass slipper!

And I stitched a couple more granny squares after tiring of ripples.

And finally....

at the end of the evening....the yarn mess was resolved. And no, that is not a cigarette in the background of this picture. It's the crocheted cigarette...which every now and then...on a stressfull evening...Groovy Girl gets it out to help her relax. Who knows why, she doesn't even smoke!

And this...has nothing to do with Tuesday Ripple, but I think it's cute. My niece, who wants to do all things crafty, made doll furniture out of 'Dixie' cups and cardboard.

PS - I will get back to the bees, honey, and MOVING in my next post.


  1. Oh no ... I hate tangles like that! Glad you all got it sorted.

  2. Can I just say, you all are so darn talented!

    I LOVE K's blanket...the colors are soothing.

    I LOVE the booties, brings back memories of my Mom's knitted (at least I think they were knitted) booties. We LOVED them....we would run and slide on the linoleum floors and tried on the shag rug. (circa 70-80"s).

    Awwww thanks for the memories of my departed Mom.

    Oh wait - they made our feet sweat too!....HAHA....So our feet were always cold anyway. LOL!


  3. That knot looks like a big backlash. Did you girls get it all worked out? Love those nice big throws...blankets. That was cute about the dixie cup furniture. Smiles, Susie

  4. Love your ripples and your granny squares are pretty. Are they for a bag? I cannot remember.

  5. Fiona - thanks!
    Jules- You're welcome for the memories...I bet they were crocheted. Everyone was crocheting in the 70's. It was the groovy thing to do!
    Susie - We did get the knot worked out. Well, "we" didn't, "they" did!
    Brenda - yes they are for a bag. I am a bag lady.
    Gemmi - Thanks!
