Thanksknitting 2021

I sincerely feel like I’m crossing a virtual finish line. The time has come for my annual holiday hiatus! I’ve already made the family cranberry sauce and knit in front of the TV with the parade on. I started a pair of “Advent” socks I’m very excited for this year! My cousin came to stay […]

Crochet Wall-Hanging

A few weeks ago, I participated in a staff art show at the university I work for. It was a lot of fun seeing my coworker’s work, and it’s always nice to beat back the imposter syndrome that’s built up over years of the patriarchy saying what I do isn’t art. It was virtual, so […]

Knitting in the Movies

We’re still in the grips of a pandemic, but one thing that I am so happy most of us can do now, through the availability of masks and vaccinations, is going to a movie theater. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (even if I can’t understand that in my film-major heart), but there […]
