• My Story, Part 3

    I am a place-based person. Always have been. Where I live isn’t just grounding, but it serves to define, in part, who I am as a person. I have picked my home consciously, many years ago now, despite the plethora of inconveniences that stem from living in such an isolated corner of the planet. I …

  • Life Dispatch, Vol 2.

    December! How are we here already? December is such a big month for us. Reed turns five in a week! The holidays! It’s all here. I’m almost done with Reed’s little sweater. I just need part of a sleeve and a hood. And buttons. The buttons will probably result in a one year delay. I …

  • My Story, Part 2

    Sometime last year, I published My Story and shared a little bit about how I landed here in This Knitted Life. Welcome to My Story, Part 2, where I tell you a little bit about ME and who I am as a person (who happens to knit a lot). Through our lives, we are shaped …

  • The Simple Solution to Too Many Scarves and Shawls You Won’t Want to Miss

    I am fairly certain that I live under a rock. Honestly, it’s a miracle I know how to use a smart phone. I think Reed is better with Siri than I am. (He’s not quite five…). I mean, the things they’ve invented these days. I just can’t keep up. Anyway. If you’re like me and …

  • Dispatch: Welcome Fall

    These early fall days are always such a treat—still warm with rays of golden light yet cool enough to wear tunics with leggings. We enjoyed four (dirty, stinky, fun) camping trips this past summer, the last of which resulted in a record number of fish hooked in a picturesque Sonoma pond. The pond was brimming …

  • Dispatch: Summer

    Given it’s mid-August yet I have spent many a day wearing socks and a sweatshirt, it’s a bit difficult for me to identify with ‘summer’ at the moment. Here on the edge of the Pacific, it’s the season that isn’t (although we have had some PHENOMENALLY GORGEOUS days). I honestly haven’t seen the sun in …

  • New Revolutionary Knitting Development–Brace Yourself! This is Big!!!

    This one is a game changer. Knitting will NEVER be the same again. The entire rule set of the knit-universe has been completely rewritten. We can now COMBINE multiple forms of relaxation and pleasantry. I KNOW!!! Like I said, this one is BIG. I don’t typically post photographs of myself on the Internet wearing a …

  • New Essential Rules for Knitters

    In direct contradiction to the title of this post, let me first offer an obvious disclaimer: there are no ACTUAL rules for knitting, or knitters. It’s a lawless land out there, just so long as you don’t stab anyone to death with your knitting needles. Unless of course it’s self-defense, but we’ll all just hope …

  • Dispatch: Road Trip

    Reed has always been such a good travel buddy, but now he’s a SUPER road tripper. Hours in the car up to Oregon, so excited to see his grandparents that he doesn’t even nap, immersed in searching for wildlife through the scopes of his binoculars, ever and always absorbed in his audio books. A quick …
