two post in one week???

i attribute it to over an indulgence of halloween treats :)

i've been reading about natural silver cleaners & since i'm out of my tube o chemicals
i thought i would give one of the mixtures a try...

hideous i know

the ingredients are vinegar, baking soda, salt, hot (boiling) water & foil

this is the result

the two knives on the right are uncleaned as is the fork on the right
big difference!

side by side

all in all this solution worked well!
i used a microfiber cloth as it suggest but still had a slight filmy look 
so after drying with the microfiber cloth, i used a jewelers cloth & that produced a nice shine
one other note....
as soon as the solution cooled down, it no longer worked :(

my daughter babs gifted the hubs & i with the coffee spoons for our anniversary
every morning i'm reminded of her sweetness :)
the teacup was a gift from my's my absolute favorite!
everything taste better out of a pretty cup don't you agree?

tea anyone?

has it been a month?

yes, it' has been a month since my last post!
sheesh, rather than getting better with this blogging business
i am getting worse :(

i have been getting some wip's off the needles while not blogging
and that's always a good thing!
i've also (while not blogging)  cast on several projects & frogged others

i'm working on socks for the hubs...

i don't remember when i started?
did i enter the info on ravelry?

clearly i'm struggling with technology & the ability to keep things up to date...
my ravelry project page is no exception

the pattern is the hubband sock
# 2 addi's, magic loop, toe up
malabrigo in #858 arbol 
beautiful yarn but maybe not a great choice for durability on socks...we'll see

happy halloween!


p.s.  i did enter info onto my ravelry page...sept 3rd was the start date
almost two months ago , hmmmmmmm

welcome fall~

we are enjoying fall in every little nook & cranny

the sunflower field is in full bloom & bee's are buzzing

both food & drink fill the air with pumpkin spice everything

 my knitting has a fall look about it too :)

fall is quickly taking over our back yard & woods

what does fall look like in your little corner of the world?
