• Sweater Number Three

    I’ve become that mom. The kind that stuffs her kid in a bunch of oddball, hand knit sweaters. Because he tolerates them and seems genuinely excited about the end product. He even picks them out from his closet. All. By. Himself. In fact, he even declared that he likes wearing my sweaters because it makes him think …

  • You Have Been Forewarned: 7 Important Knitting Lessons I Just Ignored 

    Don’t tell me later that you didn’t have fair warning that I would be complaining about this lace pullover for the next decade.

  • You Weren’t Expecting This, Were You!

    Yep. It’s a tee. After knitting four cowls this year (and a pair of socks), I got sick of going ’round and ’round and knitting the same old thing. I was bored. And apparently off my rocker one night when I went diving into my stash (which isn’t much of a dive because it isn’t …

  • For My Birthday Boy

    Dear Reed, We’re fresh off your birthday weekend. I have to admit I cried a few tears on the morning of your fourth birthday, so amazed at what a Big Boy you’ve so quickly become and a bit saddened to realize there’s only 14 more of these big birthdays before you embark into the world. …
