So today is kind of crummy, which means it’s the perfect day for a quick blog post. I’ve been in kind of a crafting rut lately. I think it has something to do with the fact that I’ve exhausted all of my standard projects. And when I say exhausted, I mean exhausted. Case in point … Continue reading Cozy Mittens

Seattle Beanie

When I took a trip to Vancouver/Seattle late last year, I was surprised to find so many crafty shops and, of course, yarn.

The only benefit to the chilly weather is my increased drive to knit. Benefit, you ask? I’ll take what I can … Continue reading Cable Hat
