RMT- September

September is here!  Feel that cool nip in the air, hear the crunch of leaves under your feet, see the spectacular array of harvest bounty?  No, me either, but it’s coming!  September is usually a busy month, back to routine, after a fun-filled, relaxed summer.  Many of you have commented how you knit your dishcloth […]

Project Progress

Project Progress

I was talking to a good friend on the phone today, and as we were hanging up she said, “I can’t wait to see some finished projects soon!”  Well today is not that day, but here’s what I’m working on this week. The mystery shawl is in the 2nd week.  So far the designer has […]

WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday

We had a spectacular day here in South Eastern NC!  Cloudless blue skies and for the first time in a long time, 75 degrees, perfection.  However I spent the bulk of the day inside, on the couch, furiously knitting away.  I am working on a pretty, simple shawl that I cast on during the Olympic Opening […]

Treasures

Treasures

I spent today with momma going through even more treasures!  She almost has her house, (and Gran’s), cleaned out and ready to rent.  I have enjoyed helping her for the most part, deciding what she wants to keep, what she needs to keep, and what to do with the rest.  I have been dragging so […]

Island Time, Again

Island Time, Again

So, even though I said, just a few days ago that I wasn’t going to distress the island, well I couldn’t help myself, as usual. Here it is painted solid, I just think it looks a little flat.   So I dry brushed the whole thing with Annie Sloan Old White and waxed it with […]

Island Time

Island Time

Today is attempt number 3 with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. And the jury is still out. Back when my new kitchen was still in the planning stages, I started shopping for a mobile island.  Remember this one,   It is so light and airy, exactly what I am looking for, just with-out wheels.  But […]

Riddle Me This – September Dishcloth

I was so pleased with the overwhelming response from our first dishcloth KAL in August.  If you didn’t get to participate, it’s not too late, the full pattern is still available!  I had many ladies tell me they knit more than one, and with the holidays coming, why not?  If you are a returning Knit-A-Longer, […]

Done Hooking

Done Hooking

Hey, Did I mention I finally finished hooking the chevron rug?  The one I talked about here and here?  Yes it is finished!! When I put it in place Mr.Fix-it said, “Wow, it really matches the light fixture in here!” I should hope so, since that fixture was the inspiration for the rug!  I designed […]

THEN and NOW

THEN and NOW

It has been a fun and busy couple of weeks here at The Double D blog!  My nephews and Sweetie Pie niece came for a summer visit, we have been winding up the swimming season with league championships, and I have been ticking the boxes off my to-do list, starting new projects right and left! […]

First of all, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have sent comments, emails and all the kind words of encouragement the last few weeks.  I really had every intention of blogging 4 times a week as usual, but, we all know that hasn’t happened.  However I have been […]
