A year (or two) in Knits

Mitchell turned two last week. I realized when I dusted off the old blog it has been almost that long since I last posted. It is time to make amends. It’s been a busy two years with a few tears but many laughs and… Continue Reading “A year (or two) in Knits”

Monomoy Cowl

Just a drive by to post that I have a new pattern available. I wandered in to Boo Peep with my BFF the other day and spied the luscious colors of Kenzie Worsted. I was smitten. Bought two skeins without a second thought. As… Continue Reading “Monomoy Cowl”
