    New Findings

    Last year I knit a lot. I finished more projects than I have since I started. The reason for this is I spent a chunk of the year not being able to look at a screen for longer than an hour. 2022 was an interesting year of learning. I took two amazing trips to places […]

  • Knitting projects

    Over the last several months I’ve completed several projects. Some are repeats, others the first time I’ve used a technique or made something new. All of these are projects intended for other people. The baby had is one oI have knit in the past. The pattern is Swirl hat. The Puffer hat is my newest […]

    If I go back to school, I want it to be here. Sure, I may die from the sudden arrival of a fae-being but the friends who are there are worth dying for and alongside. In this group I am pleased to stand alongside the following: Lonzo, who enjoys a vast anime world similar to […]

    A Sourdough Journey

  • Happy Christmas!

    Happy Christmas!

    I hope the holidays have snuck up on you less than me. Edwin has spent the last week quite sick, causing us to miss out on a dinner party, ice skating with Quince(twice) and making it very hard to finish up buying/wrapping gifts. All of that aside, we had a nice Christmas with my siblings. […]
