I began this blog last September, to do on paper something that I wouldn't do in real life: take off in my car without knowing quite where I was going nor where I would end up. I have reached a first destination far from where I began and thought I was going. It has been a very exciting "first leg" filled most importantly with encounters with extraordinary people!  But now it's time to pause and lay down roots, for a certain time...

I am moving my blog to WordPress and changing the name to Yarns for a Better World. Since I have 5 cats, you needn't worry. There will always be a kitty with me! At this "new" blog you will still find me talking about fiber and Knit-a-Square but also about sustainable development and my yarn shop.

Thanks so much to all of you who have been reading and conversing with me here! I hope I will see you at

A peony for your thoughts...

I thought I would share a few of the blooms from my garden, peonies all.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hmmm, wasn't there a contest?

Well, yes there was! Life has been a bit overwhelming for me the last few weeks, but I am getting back on top of things!

Since I kept you in suspense for the total of the Knit-a-Squillion Challenge, I offered a $25 gift certificate from my yarn shop, Hands with Hearts to the person who guessed the closest to the total.

As it turns out, my daughter Cathy had the closest guess with 555.  To be fair,  we will be sending the $25 to Knit-a-Square (don't worry about Cathy, she has free acces to my shop! )!

Please keep knitting and crocheting. I will be announcing a new challenge soon!

Remember, it's winter in South Africa!
