Get Sheep(ish) with Vickie Howell’s new Stitch. Rock. Love yarn!

I’ve been working with yarn in one way or another since I was a kid – back from when my mom first taught me to finger crochet and use a french knitting spool, to my college years when I learned to crochet and made afghans for everybody I knew – right up to these past […]

(Not Very) Wordless Wednesday #191 – Gleek Retreat via Instagram

Have I mentioned how much I love the Instagram iPhone app*?? It’s so easy to get and share pictures and you can edit them right there on your phone using their presets very quickly and easily. I had a lot of fun taking and sharing photos over the weekend at Gleek Retreat, and even a […]

Four years

As I’m reminded every May when I renew my domain names, another blogging year has gone by. This month marks four years since I started this site, three years since I began blogging at my review site, and one year since I started my knitting blog. I am somewhat in awe of the fact that […]
