Flying the friendly skies
My McGunnegle


There may be better versions of this song on YouTube, but I love the dancing, clowning around, and good time in this one!! The Treniers are a hoot!

Ragmop, something I'd never confuse with my Ragtops!

Ragtop III

  • Project: Ragtop III, Ragtop by Susan Lawrence
  • Yarn: Cascade 220 - a partial skein that my sister gave me, found in the stash
  • Needle: US 6 (DPNs)
  • Start to Finish: November 2 - November 7, 2012

I cast these on while waiting for my flight in Green Bay on Friday and was nearly finished with the first mitt by the time I made San Francisco, even with generous snooze time. After our day at Point Reyes on Sunday, we had a leisurely evening of knitting and reading on the houseboat. I finished the first mitt and made a good start on the second. I didn't knit quite as much on the way home, but still managed to finish up the second on Wednesday... and broke them in on Thursday! Wonderful pattern, I love them!!

I want The Treniers at my next party... Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, too!




Ragtops are the very best mitts for hard warming come cold weather. Thanks for starting my day off with a happy tune!


Those are great and I love the color. All I can think of is Jimmy Buffett's Ragtop Day.


Loved the performance by the Treniers +...happy, happy start to my day!
Plus, I'll have to knit some Ragtops now. :)


I need to make some Ragtops!


I get the name Ragtop now. . . that had escaped me when I saw the photo on Facebook earlier. I am going to have to look the pattern up in the future as for some reason neither Internet Explorer nor Google Chrome likes Ravelry.

Oh, wow!!!!! I wish they still made 'em like Dean Martin---thanks so much for sharing that video.
