the KWH iPad Show #19 💜 friendly fibre & neighbourly farewell

Hello & Welcome
to my 19th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is fibre-friendly
fondness for neighbourly kindness :)


knitting, needles & yarn from Sylvia

Hey… remember a few weeks ago, when our neighbour surprised me with a bagful of assorted yarn? Well, now look!

Another neighbour (an especially friendly clerk from our local Safeway store) has knit a red vest/slipper set and packed it in a canvas “Safeway” shopping bag with 3 pairs of 5 mm straight knitting needles, plus 3 big balls of gold/pink fuzzy-tufty fashion yarn! Such a sweet surprise :) The canvas bag will be a handy tote for knitting projects. But what would you suggest to knit with yarn like this? I’m not sure what to make from it…

Yarn is always fun :)

But then, this past weekend was moving day for our dear “snow angel” neighbour Randy. Now their house is empty and I’m feeling a bit sad. Randy cared about his neighbours and was like a staple in the community :) We’re blessed to have known him and very thankful for his diligent effort to clear the snow from several neighbouring driveways, including ours. There were days when the snow just kept coming… and so did Randy—frequently ploughing our place 2-3 times in one day!!! The weather was harsh, but Randy’s heart was warm. He knew hubby was on crutches and I’d be the one shovelling. So he definitely helped make our winters more bearable! Shovelling is okay and can even be fun (fresh air, sniffling neighbourly interaction, frozen faces, etc.). But y’know it can really cut into my knitting time ;) So instead, it was my pleasure to knit special gifts of appreciation <3

snowy sunsets ❤ #10

Now those days are gone… But lo and behold, look what I found! A snowful blast-from-the-past video of the last time Randy ploughed our driveway (dated March 2nd, 2015). How amazing for it to have survived all these months on my iPad! Who could have know that this glimpse of him in action would bid a fitting farewell… We’ll miss seeing them around the neighbourhood, but that’s life… God bless Randy and his wife in their new home <3

This week…All Important Nothings!


Seinfeld FAQ

The popular tv show SEINFELD was a show about “nothing”… and I believe we’ve watched every single episode! Now today, I read this lovingly crafted post about life’s “all-important nothings” that fill and fulfill our lives… from fibre, food and flowers to friends and fun!

Add to that, a quote from Jane Austen: “…able to make a spectacle of herself where ever she goes.” and you’ve got yourself a reblog via Mrs. Walker’s Art and Illustrations ;) ♥ Jackie

How much fun that give away was! Although I was a bit sad for the ‘non-winners’, I really enjoyed the enthusiasm of the winners and the nice emails that followed. For the non-winners: Laurie has a fun give-away on her blog!


The weather is hot, …even the eggs are sweating ;0) That is all I will whine say about it.


It just means indoor fun with new knitting projects. I am still knitting away left over yarn. This Fair Isle project is perfect for that.

I bought new yarn too. This glorious yarn is a mix of merino and yak. I had never seen that before. A little research learned me that Yaks provide excellent wool suitable for all kind of fabrics, used already for thousands of years by the people in the Himalayas. Louis Vuitton discovered the fine quality of it a couple of years ago and made it…
