  • 8 Must-See Absolutely Free Sock Knitting Patterns

    I have had socks on my brain this week. I don’t know what this says about me. Maybe that my feet are cold? I’ve been perusing Etsy and other sites for sock yarn when I have no time or business doing so. I’ve even sourced Size 1 (2.25 mm) needles with trial intentions of letting …

  • On How I Almost Got Caught Up On Some of the Things

    Okay, that might be an overstatement. Especially if you count the five thousand toys and bits of shredded cardboard box (ahem Rocket Ship) Reed left strewn throughout the house before he went to bed.

  • Redemption, Vol. 2

    Unsurprisingly, I still haven’t redeemed myself. I thought I was all (well, mostly) in the clear when I finished my last cream colored baby hat…but then the hat was actually a wee bit too small for the neighborhood baby (AKA Baby Hat Model). Of course. I had been cleverly working up these Much Improved baby …

  • On Fall Knitting

    I typically think of Fall as a gentle season of calmness and slowing down. Knitting quietly in the window while staring mindlessly at the trees in the yarn, leaves adjusting hue as a last hurrah before they drift to the ground and rot until I rake them up. Fall is when I aim to tidy …
