Good morning friends! It's another Monday. Last week wasn't great, and this whole month has been blah in general - I will blame it on winter. The blah week culminated in my pulling my back on Friday - ARGH. I always find it hilarious that I never pull my back while exercising, but it always happens… Continue reading A Crafty, Restful Weekend
Happy Valentine's Day! I used to HATE Valentine's Day, and I can definitely understand why it's an irritating holiday to many people. I was single a good chunk of my college years and 20s, and I protested the holiday by wearing black. I'm far from those days now, but part of me wants to wear… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Self-Care

I decided… Continue reading Knit-Wise Review: Chunky Mittens
Hi friends! At least it's the middle of January now. Ergh, January. I first saw this cartoon a couple of years ago, but this sums up how I move through the month pretty well: We had a couple of days last week where the weather was sunny and in the 70s - I felt great!… Continue reading Update – Fighting a Cold with MITTENS
Hello friends! Today I share a project of my own doing. ...shall I say, my own design? It feels weird to say, "I DESIGNED THIS" when the design uses only the most basic knit stitch (the, ahem, knit stitch). It feels like when I was a teenager and in Algebra 2 class, and decided that… Continue reading Candy Cowl
