Hello & Welcome to my 48th episode of the
KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is kniterally flying high for HPP awareness 🙂

Hey everyone… Well, it’s been more than a few weeks since my last reblog/post. I’ve been reading as many posts as possible from the growing blog community that surrounds me. Yet try as I might to write, just couldn’t break through the “blog fog” brain clog that’s been keeping all my blogful dots of inspiration from connecting into posts :-/ ‘Guess lovely outdoor crafting weather can have that effect, sometimes 🙂 Have you experienced “blog fog”? How did you get back into your blogful groove?

Anyhoo… what have we been up to?

This past weekend, we packed our carry-on and flew to Winnipeg. Direct flight departure time was Friday morning at the crack of yawn 😉 I’m so glad we could attend the 1st annual Soft Bones Canada HPP Awareness Conference at The Forks in Winnipeg. It was a really well-organized event. Out-of-town attendees stayed at the Inn at the Forks. Friday night was an informal meet & greet for researchers, patients and organizers at the Museum of Human Rights. Saturday at the St. Boniface Hospital was a full day of HPP education seminars with experts from across Canada and the USA. Then following the seminar, the conference concluded on a full stomach with dinner at the Clay Oven 🙂

We stayed an extra day in The ‘Peg…
riding the prairie summer heatwave
and
 enjoying BBQ time with family ❤

This flight also marked the first time (since our Cancun knitting fiasco in 2012, when airport security nearly confiscated my knitting needles… yikes!!!) that I’ve dared to carry my knitting aboard any aircraft. The needles were a go, ‘though the mere 1.5 hour flight was barely enough time for aerial photos, drafting this post PLUS knitting… LoL … Oh well, it felt good just knowing my knitting was near 😉 Knitting in the sky is the only way to fly, after all. And with USB ports at every seat, life above the clouds was pretty good!

Do you tend to over or under pack for travel?
My travel knitting WIPs always outweigh my destination. Only brought 2 low-risk carry-on flight knit WIPs this time. But alas, it was still too much 🙂

#1 — super-loopy-cool cast on…
See pics from my Christmas decorated staircase, including garland lengths of this cast on.

#2 — original heart dishcloth pattern…
My next original hand-knit heart design,
which is currently under construction.
Details will (eventually!) come… if/when
I ever get out of this app-sized iPad space :-/

Introducing… my Bramble❤tini Heart knitting pattern

#46 💜 Do you see what I see?

Hello & Welcome to my 46th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is my eye on the sky 🙂

We’re off on another 14-hour road trip adventure to Manitoba for a nephew’s wedding/family visit and HPP doctor’s appt. En route somewhere under the Saskatchewan sky, I glanced up from my knitting and grabbed the iPad to capture what looked to me like a heart in the clouds! Everyone else seems to see something different in this photo, though …LoL… So, what do yOu see?

Then back in the backyard at “party central” where all the family’s been gathering from Ontario, BC, Saskatchewan and Alberta—rays of afternoon sunshine offered some brilliant shadowy effects as preview to another golden prairie sunset ❤

I love yarn!

the KWH iPad Show #14 💜 100 days and counting…

frowning Mac computer

.
Hello & Welcome
to my 14th episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is a reflective
milestone of the past 100 days…
with just you, me & my iPad 🙂

Photo of my iMac's blogful room with a view.

How’s your summer so far? Our drought-dried region finally got a break from the sun for a full day of rain 🙂 and I suddenly realized that I’ve gone a full 100+ days without my iMac… WOW… never thought I’d last 100 days!!! This photo of my iMac’s room with a view marks the milestone. But awe… so sad to see my poor ol’ iMac sitting all alone where we used to blog together for hours-on-end every day… until my iMac died on April 7th 😦 Now it’s just you, me & my iPad.

These days, I blog from any room in the house—including outside 🙂 Do you blog from a tablet or phone? I’m fairly used to it by now, but sure do miss my iMac :-/ Even with the freedom to move around, this “iPad sized” space can feel quite cramped, tedious and increasingly disorganized. Thank Goodness for the external keyboard, which has been a real sanity-saver! I’m also glad this happened during the long/inspiring days of summer, rather than the short/cold/dark days of winter.

Anyhoo…

100 days down and hopefully fewer than 100 days to go! One way or another, we’re 100 days closer to iMac replacement (whenever that’ll be) than before. Just gotta keep blogging for as long as it takes, and hope the iPad lasts! So thanks for tuning-in to this 18th “episode” (including 4 reblogs) for Season 2 of the KWH iPad Show!!! I’m really glad you’re here 🙂

the KWH iPad Show #2 💜 April snow showers

Hello & Welcome

to another episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is the snow in our backyard,
as see through the camera-eye of my iPad 🙂

Snow is fun, but watching it melt is usually more fun! Saturday was a great day to watch melting snow, since our area woke up to a whopping 30 cms / 12 inches of it! We slept-in, but don’t mind missing half the show. It was all melted by sundown, anyway. Now that it’s gone, I’m pleased to have captured AND watermarked (what will hopefully be) the final flakes of the season via my iPad 🙂 To do this, I used the WATERMARK online photo editing/watermarking website. Yup, gotta ❤ learning something new—even though my iMac died and my blogging life has been turned upside-down…

Snow is funny stuff, though. It tends to linger, but our trees usually begin budding by Earth Day. This year’s snow melted a month ago, yet it’s been so windy/dry that we’re still waiting to see blooms ‘n buds :-/ April snow showers are nothing unusual, around here. Local old-timers claim to have seen snow every month of the year! Personally, since moving here in 2009, we’ve seen snow once in September and 50% of the time during the first week in May.
