Training for the Tour

Tour de Fleece is kicking off next week! Since our guild is forming a team, I’m hoping to participate again, even though I’m struggling to work on a baby blanket, a sweater test-knit, and a new knit-along starting in July… I’ll make it work. I think I just need to cut back a little. Last […]

I Stand with Ravelry

On Sunday, Ravelry put out a statement about Pro-Trump speech on their platform: “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy.

There are so many memories of hiking, fishing, panning for gold, rafting, and, of course, yarn shopping. As soon as I heard about a […]

Project Packing

I don’t know about you, but when I travel, I always have my projects picked out before I do any other packing. I may have left on a trip without underwear before, but I’ve never left without a project. My process usually goes like this: I get really excited about seven or eight projects, but […]
