What fun!

Crochet a coral reef??? Sounded intriguing when the idea was shared at a Thursday knit night a few months ago. The idea to be a part of creating a Hyberbolic Crochet Coral Reef caught on in a flash and all the intrepid knitters of LYS dug out scrap yarns of all colors and crochet hooks and off we went, creating wonderful and quite realistic-looking "coral". A field trip to the Smithsonian in D.C. is in the works for warmer weather. The coral reef will be on display in the Sant Ocean Hall through April 24th.

Blast from the past....

Remember 2010? I had such a busy, fun day on New Year's Eve that visions of completing my abc-along sat on the shelf.
So here, in all its glorious lateness, is my attempt at crossing the finish line.

U is for the many UFOs in my knitting collection. It's not unusual for me to get the urge to undertake another project, all the while ignoring any urges to complete at least one of those UFOs.....
V is for Villages, both real and commercial. There's Kitchen Kettle Village in the
village of Intercourse, PA where I can be found almost every Thursday evening, happily spending time with my knitting buddies at the Lancaster Yarn Shop. Visitors have a variety of activities and shopping choices at Kitchen Kettle Village. As for me, I invariably end up spending valuable time at LYS.

W is for Wendy Ellis, the wonderful owner of LYS, who I am willing to say, has the patience of a saint and a knowledge of yarn and fiber, second to none...a knowledge she is always willing to share with others :) Even the tiniest of folks.

Y is for YARN!!!!!!! Enuf said.
Z is for Zeller's home and the residence of various snakes, birds, rescue doggies, fish, turtles, and, the zaniest of the bunch, two tortoises. The tortoises are about 65 lbs. each and will be leaving us in the next week for their new home at a local veterinary facility. I am beyond thrilled. And the zookeeper? That'd be the turkey at the top of this blog, my darling husband Ken.
Happy New Year to all!
