This weekend, I broke my yarn diet and went to a local yarn store. (I bought a cute hat kit with squishy yarn that was decently priced). When I walked in, an employee walked up, greeted me, and asked if I had been there before. About thirty seconds later, another employee walked up, greeted me,… Continue reading Yarn Store Hermit
Hi friends! I wanted to show the baby blanket that I recently finished! The sprig stitch is made using double crochet stitches (treble crochet in UK terms). It is a pretty stitch to use if you're wanting to experiment and try something different.

Yoga… Continue reading On Accepting Imperfections
