Mad about Magazines

Most knitters and crocheters are collectors; of yarn, of course, but also tools and patterns. We often collect these things knowing full well we won’t live long enough to make all of the things. There’s even a term for it: SABLE or “Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy.” I’m no exception, but for a long time […]

Some Independence Day Thoughts

Do you remember when I went to the Swig and Stitch event at the National World War I Museum? Well, our teacher was very nice, and had extra kits that she gave out. By that time, the only ones left were the American Flag design, and honestly I would have rather had another poppy. Beggars […]

I only got about half an ounce. So the trick would be to get them in the ground earlier so they’re producing […]

Treat Yo Self

I’ve shared my views on love before, and if I’m being totally honest, my experience with Valentine’s Day peaked in elementary school: when you made your own valentine mailbox that all of your classmates filled with holographic pop cultural valentines and maybe some candy. But do I let that get me down every February 14th? […]

More Stash, More Storage

No offense to Marie Kondo, but I’m not ready to part with any of my yarn (and besides, it does spark joy). So when my stash started overflowing just a little bit, I decided I’d rather get some new storage. And not long after I made this decision, I found a perfect solution on Pinterest: […]
