• Reed’s New Scarf

    This kid. I love him. He makes my heart explode. He asked for a scarf that he’ll probably never wear (because, honestly, the first one didn’t exactly get a ton of use), but I don’t care. I knit it anyway. I spent a ridiculous number of nights on the sofa, watching YouTube videos to teach …

  • Fall Bucket List of Must Knits

    I know. I KNOW? Fall? Yes, Fall. It’s not official yet. There’s still nearly a month for that. Even though it’s still hotter than Hades, Fall IS in the air.

  • Nirvana Yarn

    Every now and then, I get the itch to visit my Little Yarn Store. Even though I don’t need anything at all. I will find myself down in Civilization (because I otherwise live in The Middle of Nowhere) with a few toddler-free moments, and I will sneak in. I sometimes get this same itch with …
