What Do You Want to Be?

So, I have this yarn. It is Adorn Luxe by Three Irish Girls. The colorway is called “When Doves Cry,” it is a lovely grey base with purple speckles. It is delightfully squishy and soft. I picked up the yarn at Wisconsin Craft Market in Madison. If you ever find yourself in Madison, I highly recommend […]

FO Friday: Siobhan Part One – Yarn Travels and Love at First Sight

Every now and then, a project just jumps out at me. I see it and I know immediately that I need to make it. That was how the Siobhan shawlcame about. Last October, my mom and I took a trip to San Antonio, Texas. We did all the normal tourist things, saw the Alamo, visited […]

It’s Going to Be a Great Day!
