We welcomed Calvin Cedar into our family on February 6th, 2015. The build up to his birth was long and somewhat stressful, but once he decided he was ready things went quickly. Calvin was born at home in what was one of the most beautiful, empowering experiences of my life. Our midwives are my new … Continue reading Look Who’s Here!
One more baby project leapt on and off the needles recently. After finishing a relatively big project, I like to do something small and quick. A palate cleansing project, if you will.

This baby will be swathed not only … Continue reading FO:: Little Oak
After a rather disappointing first attempt at this pattern, I have achieved success! This is another knit for sweet baby M, in the same color palette as the first. Her mama and I both love purple, so it's an easy choice. The second time around was faster and more successful because of the first fail. … Continue reading Second Time Around
