Presents !! Secret Pal Puffy Recieved

I got my secret pal exchange for the no sheep for ewe exchange. My secret pal sent two different skeins . The first is FFF one yarn a thousand sensations Panache. I felt this yarn sooooooo soft and prettty before I read the label this is 100% nylon.38 yards. Unbelievable. this will be a hat for my soon to be 4 year old granddaughter. I'll try to take pics tonight. Very varigated nice colors can't wait to knit it up. The second is from Artful Yarns Balett 45% nylon, 35% acrylic 20% cotton. 71 yards. Nice sky blue with gold so pretty. I think these will be a pair of fingerless gloves for ME. Yes this year I am knitting some things for ME. My secret pal said she couldn't decided on the more subtle yarn or the more fun yarn. I LOVE BOTH!~!! Thank you sooo much. I will be sending to my downstream secret pal on June 30. I explained on email I could not get out until then and she said she was so busy it was not a problem. This is a great exchange.

On another note, I am working on textured tank from June Knit 'N Style. Finished the back, now working on the front. Nice patterns easy repeats even for me lol. I'll post a pic when I am finished.

Working on the next poem in the day of a life with fibromyalgia, should be up later this week.

Hubby will be home all week next week. So good for him to relax. We are watching an old abbot and costello film. Great fun. Seee you all later.

Wednesday June 20th

It has been quite a while since I have posted been pretty sick with either a tick or spider bite But feeling a bit better now. So was prodded by a new friend to write some poetry. We both have Fibromyalgia so here goes.

Aware that I am awakening

I open one eye.

And see

my dog looking at me.

I do the usual check to see

Do I hurt?

Of course,

Where is that pain?

Ahh the left hip again.

The others are all minor

And I say to Jester

“Not yet, let’s go back to


As we dose off

I remind myself

Do not turn on the LEFT

And I can be pain free

For just

a little while


Oh and my sister had the baby Jonathan Peter he is just soooo cute.
