    It’s summer time! This summer is bittersweet for me because I just moved to the coast. If you have ever lived or visited somewhere like San Francisco in the summer, you might know what this means. I will give you a clue: yesterday it was 80 degrees (26.7 C) inland at my OLD home, but …

  • It’s Time for the Super Duper Birthday Sale

    This year whizzed by. It’s honestly a bit of a fog. I would like to say thank you to all the knitters out there who have supported me this past year, stopping by this space to read and say hello.  Because I’m turning 38 this year (Whoa! Shockingly close to 40!), all patterns released during …
