Ah, Drat

I started this tiny project thinking, “it’s okay if I run out of yarn on the MDK kimono, I am going to need another skein to make the matching strawberry hat anyway.” almost but not quite there… don’t worry, it will be washed before gifting I got to this point and stopped, putting it on […]

My front yard is also a recipient of the orange (and yellow) love. bulbs are my kinda gardening […]

Fun Patterns For You and Me

Just things I’ve seen recently that I dig: I love this sweater by Laura (cosmicpluto knits!) — Button Me Up Pullover. I also love Adrian’s (hello yarn) Mushroom Pulse Warmers — just the thing for someone who would like to try some stranded work and steeking (if you want to steek)! I have been avoiding […]
