Sometimes, I am an idiot.

It’s true. I tend to be a more detail-oriented kind of person, which is very good in some ways but there are times when I kind of tend to overlook the big picture because I get too caught up in the details. For example… I received a new knitting book for Christmas and have been […]

Weekly Update – Jan 23

It’s been an interesting week weather-wise here – from more snow to an actual thunderstorm last night that had Abbi cowering in our bed with us – and no longer believing when we assure her that there are no thunderstorms in the winter, sigh. Here’s what I’ve been up to this week: The second-best day […]

UFOs (no, not the outer space kind)

In fiber-speak, a UFO is not something that involves little green men or anything, but rather stands for UnFinished Objects. Something that we all tend to have at least one or two (or more) of sitting around for one reason or another. Perhaps it’s because you ran out of yarn (gasp!), couldn’t figure something out […]

Christmas gifts, last-minute style

As I’m somewhat prone to procrastination, I didn’t really think much about Christmas gifts for 2011 until the season was well underway.

You see, I still had never finished the second sock of the pair that I’d started last spring for my middle daughter – yes, the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome. So whether […]

Halloween Pumpkin Hat Pattern

So yes, I know it’s been a few months since Halloween, but I’ve been meaning to post this so figured I’d go ahead anyway. I want to remember how I made this hat, and since I couldn’t find a pattern that I liked when I was looking, I want to put this out there in […]

Ready to introduce the ‘new’ site!

So I’m up way (way) too late, but I’m so excited to finally have the new theme on ready to go! Head on over and take a look – isn’t it pretty? 2012 marks a few big blogging changes for me – not the least of which is combining my two sites into one. […]
