Threading the linker part 2...Steven Speilberg we are NOT!

Second attempt
No laughing...well, quietly...I'll get it, I'll get it...I mean the threading, not the filming.

Place the work on the needles, wrong sides facing each other.

I use these dental loops. they work great for threading the linker and the serger!

Press the foot pedal and link away.

There you go...cut off at the end, but getting better...with practice.

I'll leave you with this:

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days" Col 2:16

Threading the Erika linker--for Katy

Here is the first one. The other one may (?) be better, I'll post it tomorrow?

Also: got the first video at the bottom of the previous post...!

I'll leave you with this:

Hey, girly girls! are some pictures of what I've been doing.

I've permitted myself to start this moebius, it is so fun to knit. I use the Cat Bordhi mobius cast on. When I get tired of doing regular knit, I start a row knitting backwards, in continental style, which gives me purl rows. I usually do 3 or 4 rows of each. It goes fast--relatively--and it is good brainless work.
The other day, it was cold--but not as cold as the following days of 5F--so I made me a cup of tea in one of my favourite mugs.

It looked like this outside, which was very inspiring for making bread.

Then, I milled some of THE BEST WHEAT IN THE WHOLE REALM, and made bread.

See, it was cold but not so much.

While the bread was rising and, later, baking I lounged in the living room which was flooded with sunshine...I love that room in the morning. Since I'm a Mom I can multitask...while I knitted I watched some youtubes of knitting, but mostly Bible that too.

This is the scarf--in progress, and almost done--for 2a. Sorry I did not take a picture of it blocked. It came out so lovely. This scarf was a 'practice block' for an afghan. I'll show you later. [I'm considering buying pink yarn by the truckload, seriously, EVERYBODY--actually the girls--wants everything pink.] {the guys want blue and/or black--or should I say black-and-blue, which, more readily match their bruises...boys!}

I am happy to announce that I "tried" making a video of the moebius, and I've to place it in the blog?????? as soon as I figure it, you'll see it.
! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Persistence, or rather "Extreme point-and-click" and VOILA!

You will see my first--and maybe only--video. It took an hour to upload a 3 and a half minute video. There must be something else I need to know.
Boy-oh-boy, it sounds like I'm breathing in a respirator. I'll have to figure how to hold the camera and not breathe, or something. [hopefully you won't notice so much]
I'll leave you with this:

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." II Pe 3:3-4

Do any of you what has happenned with "A girl and her mut"
I've been going to see her, but all I get is a blank's been a few weeks.

I wondered if she posted something about it when I wans't on line. If any of you know, could you share??????

I really like her blog. Some of her knitting being "modeled" by her dog. Really cute.

C'ya soon with wind...sleet...the usual for late Autumn. Dodged the BIG storm. I'm thinking...some of our people may be digging a tunnel to get out of their upper deck...

I'll leave you with this:
