My Poor Neglected Blog

I feel guilty and sad for having neglected this blog for so long.  I hope to give her a fresh look soon and, of course, to begin posting on a regular basis again.

I just wanted to briefly tell you about the fun day we had yesterday...Carol and I traveled up to Perrysburg Ohio to spend the day with some stitching friends.  We stitched, gabbed, laughed, and laughed some more.  We took a break to walk across the street for lunch.  Following that half of us walked into town a couple of blocks (Perrysburg was having their Winter Festival).  Lots of ice carvings either finished or in progress.  We stopped into Thrush's Bakery/Baking Store and then went on to Yarn Cravin', a wonderful yarn shop.  Both will merit return visits in the future.

I have been knitting scarves since my trip to Woodstock, VT in October.  Thus, I felt it necessary to replenish my stock yesterday.  Here are the beautiful pastel yarns I picked up at Yarn Cravin' (I already had the spring pastel wools).

I couldn't resist.
A bunch of us have been knitting the ruffled scarves from a Liberty Wool publication.  The four skeins on the right are more Liberty Wools.

Here is a photo of the LW scarf I knitted for my daughter for Christmas.  (obviously all rolled up)

She and I both agree that wearing a little soft wool around your neck on some of these blustery winter days feels quite comfy and luxurious.

Stitching - I am working on the 2013 SAL from Attic Needlework entitled The Ann Bowers Sampler from The Examplarery.  I am right on the stitching schedule, so feel good about my start.  I am enjoying Ann very much, as well as stitching for the first time using my wooden frame from England.  More on both of those in the near future.

I hope to hear from some of you...I know I have neglected everything online for months (except Pinterest!!).

Take care, keep cozy and warm, and I will be back soon.



  1. Oh my, those yarns are just gorgeous! I'm sure you'll have lots of fun knitting with them.

  2. So nice to have an update from you Bobbi!
    I love the wool and scarves, what beautiful colors.
    I am looking forward to seeing a pic of Ann Bowers.

  3. Bobbi, it's so good to see a post from you! I love the yarn--my daughter just took up knitting and was impressed with the pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing your Ann Bowers.

  4. Another great time had in Perrysburg! I hope to join you on the next trip. See you tomorrow.

  5. Yea Bobbi! So glad you are attending to this blog again. Like the wool and yarn. Finished the fan part of my on-line class and to start on the band next. Need to get back to the L sampler.
