Yarn Along :: Modern Lovers

  My knitting has been a little sparse lately. An irritated thumb and sore wrist have kept me from spending much time at the needles.  And I've noticed the less I've been knitting, the less I feel like knitting...kind of a bummer given the season we're heading into! I did cast on a pair of … Continue reading Yarn Along :: Modern Lovers

Birthday Dress Update

I've made a commitment to knit G a sweater each year for her birthday.  As a knitter with a winter baby, it seems like a sensible time to knit her an annual sweater (and an inspiring excuse to do so).  You can see her first birthday sweater here.  I can't believe she's going to be 5! … Continue reading Birthday Dress Update

Always the Knitting

Last week was long, strange, challenging, and insightful. In so many ways I felt inadequate, as if whatever I managed to accomplish wasn't enough, and everything I didn't get done was monumental.

Knowing there would be a 4 to 1 ratio of … Continue reading Yarn Along:: Out of Hibernation

Yarn Along :: On + Off the Needles

Morning Meeting

Come Friday morning, after a week of early morning wake-ups, preschool drop offs, and busy work days, I'm ready for a mellow breakfast by myself.  Just me, my knitting, and some freshly brewed and baked goodies.  This is one of the ways I center myself before a busy day and fill up my Bliss Cup, … Continue reading Morning Meeting
