Sadness and a Hat

Boris doesn’t much like to model handknits, but usually he looks much happier than this. “why, oh why do you have to model handknits on me that aren’t for me?!” Sadly, his dear cousin Malish was put to sleep very early Thursday morning. We miss him. happy Malish, and yes, that is Boris [The hat […]

The Fourth

I have three sweaters on my mind right now. I’ll elaborate on each of them over the next few days, but this sweater is the one I have been working on while thinking about the other three — it’s the fourth, the one that doesn’t need any thought. mmm! malabrigo licorice whip in goofy lighting […]
