SASQUATCH

COVID-19 is all anyone can talk about, so why should I be any different… Honestly, I’m miffed today. I have been training and hyping for an active spring break trip that had to be cancelled for everyone’s safety. It was the right decision, but that doesn’t mean I’m not devastated. When I shared the news […]

Knitting in Public

I recently came across an article called “Raise Your Needles: In Defense of Public Knitting” by Aleesha Paz. It’s a nice, long-form piece about why we knit in public and how the public perception of knitting has changed (or not changed) over the years. Of course, it starts with an anecdote about a “friend” scolding […]

Emma graciously allowed me to return with another installment of Irish Adventures.  We saw so many incredibly beautiful and fascinating things, and met so many implausibly beautiful and fascinating people. It truly is a magical place. Back in the early stages of planning, […]

My Friend Keegan

I know I promised an Adventures at the Ren Fest post, but there’s something else I need to write about first. My friend Keegan Rice passed away this last Saturday. He was 27 years old, and I’ve known him for more than half of my life. Keegan and I became friends in our middle school […]
