As 2017 draws to a close, I was inspired by several of the knitting blogs that I follow to take a look back at the projects I created throughout the year. I knew that I didn’t get much knitting done this year, but I was still surprised to learn that I only finished 6 projects. […]

Every now and then, I actually do some sort of craft project that is not knitting related. This is one of those crafts. Christmas cards seem to be a big deal in both Husband’s and my families. I think we sent out almost 50 cards this year! This means we get a lot of cards […]

I don’t knit a lot for other people. If I’m going to put the time and effort into a hand knit item, I want to make sure the person receiving it will properly appreciate all the effort. As hard as it is for me to understand, some people just don’t place the same value on […]

I’m now on my second shipment of Foodstir’s Bakers Club. The October box contained a kit to make Monster Cupcakes. Kiddo and I decided to make them as a treat for the annual trip to the pumpkin patch. This time I remembered to take a picture of everything all nicely boxed up. Here is everything unboxed, […]

It feels like it has been a long, long time since I have actually finished a knitting project. Between preparing for the AAP test, and life in general, my knitting time had been pretty limited. But, now, I have reason to celebrate, as I am finally done with my speckled space socks, which I started back […]

Overall, I have a pretty good finishing rate on my knitting projects. It may take a while (sometimes a long while), but I usually end up with a finished object. Every now and then, however, I run into that project that I just cannot get through. Try as I might, I just cannot get the […]

I love cooking and baking. And it is one of those things that I like to share with Kiddo. So when, back in July, I came across foodstirs and their baking kit subscription service, I decided to give it a try. Every other month, the send a themed baking kit, with organic mixes and all […]

Every summer, a couple of my girlfriends from high school and I try to get together for a couple of days. Well, mostly every summer, I think we’re 3 out of the last 4 summers, which is pretty good, if you ask me. This year, we decided to check out Galena, IL. Two of us, […]

I’ve been pretty down lately. Actually, for most of the summer. I’m sitting here, staring at two unfinished and unpublished posts from two and three months ago and wondering what happened. Except, I know what happened. Me, I happened. Every so often, I fall into a sort of spiral where I feel like everything is […]

Summer started off with a bang around here (I know, it isn’t really summer, yet, but Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, so let’s call it close enough). It seems like the past couple of weekends have been full with very little time for knitting, writing, or much else. I’m hoping to get a […]
