(Aw, the perils of the modern housewife.) But this …

  • This is Going to Take Forever

    This poncho is going to take forever. As in: possibly to be finished by 2050. Although things are progressing with more gusto now that I finally settled on the final number of stitches to cast on. First there was a wee bit of 120 stitches. Too many? Frog. Then there was a second go using …

  • It’s Going to be a Poncho

    All things considered, I am making great strides to complete my knitting bucket list for the year. I’ve finished the last of my 2015 projects, and my Waterlily tee even double counts as a tunic.

  • Knit the Sun

    Congrats to Ann from New York for winning the Architexture giveaway. Enjoy! There has been so much ferocious knitting of late. Stitching like mad at all hours to finish up projects…then typing at the speed of light to write and do all the computer bits during free moments. Before I released Metamorphosis last week, I …

  • On the Precipice of Something

    Have you ever come to a place in your life where you pause and realize you are on a precipice? All you have to do is leap, although where you will land is unknown. Uncharted. Maybe it will be greatness.  Perhaps it will be an utter and total flop. There is no choice but to …
