I don't recommend moving across states, within the time-frame of the shortest month of the year, when you have an infant. And I know this from personal experience, because this is exactly what we are doing. This apartment may be tiny, but she is well filled, with books and baby things. Normally I absolutely love … Continue reading Saving My Life
It just so happens that when your wonderful, beautiful, completely himself child is placed into your arms, everything in your life completely rearranges itself - including your brain. I cannot tell you how many times I've sat down to write up something amaaaazing coherent, only to find that I cannot remember my name, or what I … Continue reading Interlude & 1

Finally completed this project a few weeks ago. I have to say, it was a really fun/relaxing project to take on and complete.

Either way, it feels good to be doing something with yarn again. This little thing has grown quite a bit since I took these photos, and I love the … Continue reading On the Needle : Colorblock Baby Blanket
