They were not kidding when they said it was going to be cold for awhile! 42 degrees here today, and a killer windchill! It’s like Halloween is over, so we’re jumping head first into Winter.

I’ve been working on a lovely, wooly, colorwork Cardi- for me! More on that soon!

And Now We Are Four!


My Baby Boy turned FOUR yesterday! Time is going by so fast. He is the BEST of everything, and definitely one of the most interesting people I have ever met.

Oh Hey!

I did not mean to leave for a month! I don’t know where the summer went. We’ve just been spending it hanging out. I had to drop in today to tell you that my shop is, sadly, for the moment, broken. I, or rather, the best IT guy in the whole world, who, despite being a super busy with work & being an awesome Dad, is trying to figure out what went wrong. Please hang in there, one way or the other I will have a shop up again!! (Soon!)

Now We Are One!


My Baby Girl turned one year old today! So surreal, this year went by so quickly. She’s an amazing person, so full of light. I love her beyond infinity, and cannot imagine our little family without her.

Happy June!


So excited for summer! Or really, so excited for things to be green! I love this time of year, it’s notoriously slow for those of us in the yarn business, but what a perfect time to be outside, digging and planting and prettying things up! These poppies belong to a neighbor, but I’ve just planted some of my own.
Last year, being pregnant, and then having a new born, I pretty much took a pass on all things, especially the yard. I’m looking forward to making up for it this year!!

Knitting knitting

I’ve been stealing moments to knit on this wee little Tulip Cardi for R. I am definitely ready to be done, and happy to say I’m on the last sleeve, and am weaving the (many, many) ends in as I go.
I am using my own Vesper Worsted for this, and am very happy at the very wooly hand of the yarn. I am knitting a larger sizing, it’s a top down raglan, so I just knit more increases until it looked very big, and fudged numbers from there. As you do.
I’m quite sure it will fit her for at least two fall/winters. Also, baby girl knitting? SO MUCH FUN.
