No Time Like the Past

Bwahahaha I’m aliiiiive. Sorry I skipped you November. You were a good month of healing and getting reacquainted with the Midsommer Murders mystery show on Netflix.

Next Steps

Hello! Here’s an update. The surgery has been scheduled. I’ve already gone to my pre-op appointment. Things seem to be ok now. I have about a week and a half until the 23rd.

Most of my 2017 projects planned for this year involve a hood or hat of some sort that I’ve never made before. I’ve already completed the Maclure bonnet by Norichan that was published in… Read more »

Seatle Jan-Feb Photo Dump: Cats, Food, Fun!

At the end of last month I took a short trip up to Seattle via Amtrak to visit my friends. We hit up two famous places: Churchmouse Yarns and Uwajimaya. Yes, there is an Uwajimaya here in Beaverton, but holy smokes this places was about twice as big in all respects: larger grocery, larger home… Read more »
