Getting Ready for New York

I’m sitting here, letting the dye set in my hair (back to brown!) and suddenly I realize that it stopped being Monday 45 minutes ago. Whoops! I spent much of today doing laundry, making lists, and packing to leave for New York on Wednesday. Husband and I went out to dinner and ran some errands together, getting in a little… Read more →

New Year’s Resolutions

I really want to do right by 2014. I have high hopes that “this little knitting thing” of mine will keep moving forward and I firmly believe that, in order for that to happen, I need to keep writing on here. Self-discipline not being one of those things that I excel at, I think 2014 is the year of the… Read more →

Fiber Fest at StevenBe

It’s been a long five days (very, very long). My feet are sore. I’ve discovered that beer and cookies do not contain all the nutrients necessary to lead a functional life.

So here goes, here’s my pre-holiday… Read more →

Work in Progress: Me

With so much going on lately, my poor website has fallen by the wayside. We still don’t have internet at home so any blogging gets done at Caribou or on my phone (which is really awkward). I’ve been knitting up a storm lately, working on projects for display at StevenBe and designing accessories. I’m going to start putting some items… Read more →

Accidentally absent

I feel irresponsible, like an absentee blogger. I’ve been busy, I promise, and there are new things afoot. I have a pretty lace hat pattern using Noro Ayatori (soft, squooshy, and light as a cloud) and a little handbag out of Knit Collage Stargazer Silk and Sequins. As for other people’s patterns, I’m working up a couple of gifts out… Read more →
