Madeline loves the colour orange. I think it is a faze. I remember Cassierae enjoying the colour orange when she was in her teens. I shall never forget those fuzzy orange pants of hers.

Maddie wanted an orange scarf crochet, back in October when hunting season was just starting. She wanted to make sure wayward hunters, who may have trespassed on our land wouldn't accidentally mistake her for a moose while on the back of her horse.  Needless to say, I never got it done. She was stuck wearing her father's orange toque instead. And there sat her big ball of wool that she bought.

Last week out of boredom, I told her to look for a scarf that she would like me to make. She comes back in about  five minutes with a question.
"Ma, I found a scarf that I like, but I don't know if you know how to do the waffle stitch."

I have been crocheting since I was about 16. I aint never heard of no waffle stitch.

I told her, I will just learn how to do it, and I will Google it. Google it I did. I found it on you tube. Here is the link . The fella that was doing the tutorial did in four parts. Here, I knew how to do it all along.  It is just double crochet, and a front post double crochet.

Now that I have you all confused-- here is Maddie modelling her scarf.

She wanted a very long one. So she could wrap it around her neck. 

Here is a closer look. Does't it resemble cheese coloured waffles?

lunar winter solstice eclipse

The lunar winter solstice eclipse that happened last night is a rarity. It hasn't happened for over 400 hundred years. The next one will happen again 2094. I know I won't be around for that one, so I stayed up extremely late for this one. The following photos are courtesy of my daughter, Cassierae. Thanks Cass!!!

How many of  you gave up your beauty rest, to watch the eclipse?
