We Have Come to an Understanding

Today, I woke up before 8. I never wake up before 8 on the weekend, and certainly never on Sunday (house cleaning day). Maybe it was because I was so sore from 6+ hours working on the front yard on Saturday. Whatever it was, after being awake for two hours and taking the dogs on […]

Knit Sock Kit Swap Questionnaire

The Knit Sock Kit Swap assignments will be out shortly and since it is a secret swap, we are all posting our questionnaires on our blogs.
