another Update

Finally kicked back in on the vest I am trying to design. Whew! It's hard work. LOL

I think it's coming along great.

We are having semi-rainy, sticky, humid weather this weekend, so it's a good time to hunker down in the AC and get a little knitting done.

Wow - it's a gorgeous day!

Perfect weather - we are loving this early fall stuff. I had to wear a jacket this am out to feed the horses!

The trip to Ohio to ride with Dennis was amazing! Not the least of it when we got the tail end of hurricane Ike on Sunday afternoon. I was sure proud of our horses who barely flicked an ear at all the commotion!

I will start jumping lessons with Shad on Tuesday, so that will be pretty fun and exciting.

On the knitting front, I am working a fun pair of Monkey socks (from and a few other projects.
Starting up the Christmas knitting and finished a few things that I can't publish on the blog!

Just touching base

Can you believe it's September already!?!
Here's a September morning on the farm pic for you.

On the riding front, we are off to Ohio for a few days to ride with Dennis Reis. That should be really neat. I got a "new" jumping saddle - used, but new to me, and plan to start doing some jumping again this fall.

We have been having a blast trail riding - sadly not too much in the way of pics, but will try to get some at the clinic.

Knitting has been going great - my newest project is a pair of socks using this yarn - I think they will be really cute!

A little more knitting

Just finished Shedir. I have made this hat before. It's so gorgeous and a very fun knit.

This is for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Just a quickie update for July

Horses are doing great. Henry is off at cowboy shooting with Austin today - I weenied out. Too hot! But here are Shad and I at a Cowboy Versatility competion. He was a little worried about this bridge, but in the end, got used to it and crossed it very nicely.

The flowers are beautemeous now, but just passing their peak - heading into that hot part of summer where we get a little light on flowers. I need to find some more perennials to bloom through this time of year.

Knitting is going nicely. I have a couple of languishing WIP's, but I finished some cutie stuff.

A little top/dress for a friend's new baby. The pattern is a free pattern from Ravelry - Little Sister Dress.

Wrapped up a multi-morphing shawl (it has been through more incarnations than Prince!) for my sister. I like how it came out - I thought the two-color thing might look dorky, but I think in this particular set of colors, it's pretty.

As usual, check out the NeverBlue farm website for more of everything!

Touching Base

Lots has happened since the last time I posted.

Haven't finished much knitting, but Henry bought a new horse named Austin. Check out his web page - He is a 6 yo Thoroughbred off the racetrack. He is a very good minded horse.

I did finish a quick scarf for a dressage benefit - it came out very pretty. (at least in my opinion!)

Belated Update

Haven't been posting here much.

Just want to say that things are going great. The farm is beautiful this time of year. Tulips, magnolias, silver dollar plant, hostas coming up - wooo!
The horses are fat and sassy. We retired Henry's riding horse, so are looking for a new prospect for him. Here is Hank teaching Shadow some new stuff. Betcha didn't know that horses can read!

Knitting is zipping along with a big project nearing fruition. Viridescent Diamond Cardigan - designed by Norah Gaughan. It's yummy.

Hot diggity dog!

Just finished this shawl/stole. Simurgh by Anne Hanson. It was quite a fun knit, but was pretty all consuming as it's a gift and I wanted it finished before this coming weekend.

So now that this is done, I am working on some socks and back to the cardigan for me.

More pics on the home page -

On the horse front - Shad is doing fine - I haven't been riding much between work and the weather - I think I really need to move to a warmer climate! LOL

Callas has been a little sore in the back, so she has just been doing light groundwork. She is the cutest thing since sliced bread!

January update 1/25

Got quite a bit of knitting done this week - finished a scarf and got about halfway through another.

Here's the WIP - a stole called Simurgh from Anne Hanson - it's yummy!
Rode Shad, rode Callas. It's been cold, so I am proud of myself for getting out and getting the riding done. brrrr!
Put a bunch of knitting updates on the web page and also updated some of the horse stuff so go over and browse!

January update 1/18

Life at home is pretty good so far for 2008. Work kinda sucks, but there you go.

I was working on a scarf out of Blue Heron rayon boucle and had to frog it a couple of times before I figured out what it wanted to be. And that is a variation on the Bird's Nest Shawl out of Folk Scarves. I just did two pattern repeats so it's about 7 or 8" wide and it's coming out lovely.

I am actually working on three other things at the same time as this! A pair of socks, a Cardigan and the Simurgh stole from Anne Hanson's web site. Pics are on the Neverblue website -

I also put up a page for the corgis - only a few pics now, but they are so cute, it's hard to resist taking photos.

Pony life is good. Callas just got adjusted by the chiro and he thinks she should do much better - I will ride her this afternoon and see how it goes. Off to ride Shad now because tomorrow is supposed to be REALLY cold and I am a big weenie!

It's a New Year!

Welcome to 2008!

My first finished knitting project for 2008 is a belated pair of socks for Christmas - more knitting stuff on my web page
On the riding front, Shadow is currently at a barn with an indoor arena. Man, are we lovin' it! He is going great and we are planning to ride in a clinic on Jan 18/19. Hopefully we can get some pics then so you can see how nice he looks!
Callas is still for sale, but gave herself an owie, so she is recovering from a hip injury. I swear that once you tag them for sale they immediately try to self destruct!
The other pones are all fine and we are doing great. It should be a wonderful year!
