The Thingy is now a whatchamacallit

In a previous posting, I had a missing 'thingy" on my wool winder. I don't know if it fell off while I was moving it to Sooz's house so it could hang out there for awhile or if it was already gone. ANYWAY, since the thingy was no longer there, I had no way of remember what it looked like. Jess, who was gracious enough to understand my language and knew exactly what a thingy was, but she had a different term for it - it's a whatchamacallit. Since those seem to be universal terms that transcend hobbies, crafts, and various other subjects, Jess made a BINGO and sent these pictures with and without the whatchamacallit/thingy.
To thank her, her link to her blog is in my links section - Jessalu Knits - visit her site.

Tonight was book club night at St. John's - we finished up Purple Hibiscus : A Novel- by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. We have quite the group that loves to tie in their food with the book. Mona made Akara (black-eyed pea fritters) - and they were delicious!! We had fried sweet potato strips also, compliments of Sharon. The rest was a variety of other dishes more loosely related (or not at all) to the book. Needless to say, no one went home hungry!

I am currently working on the border for the baby afghan - and finally getting the rhythm to the pattern. Pictures forthcoming.
