May Update

Oh blog, I have not forgotten about you, I promise. Lately I just haven’t felt like enough project work has been happening to really warrant a new post.

Maybe it’s the coffee?

In tandem with feeling massive amounts of anxiety lately here are some of the things I’ve been working on to channel that potentially self-destructive behavior into something constructive. And yes I have to admit that the sweater I was working on for my husband will not be ready by the time we leave for Ireland…. Read more »

Spin Spin Spin!

And not the stationary bicycle kind! I now have two skeins of sizable length in which to make sizable shawls. The first being the three ply I made earlier this year in white and blues. The second is a merino of similar quantity, but in mostly pinks and purples. This second one I am Andean plying, aka… Read more »
