A pair of socks each month

This was one of my goals for 2013 – and I’m so excited to be completely on-track, at least so far. In January, I knit my first pair of self-striping socks – for myself. Then, for February I knit a pair of socks for my youngest daughter – her older sisters have socks still that […]

Catching up

It’s always hard to come back after a blogging break – especially when it stretches much longer than ever anticipated… And that contributes to the problem – the longer the break, the harder it is to actually sit down at the keyboard and begin to put words down again.

Are we smarter than a fifth grader? I guess we’ll find out!

Soccer–Week #2

Last week was our second round of practices and games for this spring season of soccer. And one of the coldest I can remember – poor Hannah hasn’t even been able to show off the new puppy to her teammates because it hasn’t been warm enough for any of her practices or games to bring […]

I ♥ Faces–in the wind

I just realized that it’s been a long time since I participated in the I ♥ Faces challenges – since last fall. In part, I think because I don’t have a camera that takes very good indoor photos and I just don’t take very many in general during the winter. But in any case, this […]
