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!


  1. I love you, Jeannie! Good Job!

  2. Happy 2011, Jeannie. You made it! A-Z, and what FUN it was finding out more about your life and town. But 24-lb turtles? I never would have guessed.

  3. YAY! You finished the A-B-Cs! Congratulations! Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy new year.
