Holy hannah you guys, I just finished Tenaya! When I started it way back in January, I had every intent to be quite focused and finish it relatively quickly…but then I was taken hostage by Sock Madness, which went on much longer for me than I anticipated…and Tenaya sat waiting, patiently. As I’ve been returning… Continue reading Sweater Weather
Capital Husband and I have been adventuring about the parks our fair city has to offer with the finest in dollar store toys. We got ourselves a pretty super frisbee, which he has been rather patiently teaching me to throw.

Then my husband came home the other… Continue reading Sailing Along
Well, I might be getting better at this whole sweater knitting thing. So far, Tenaya is going really well. Once I got the cable pattern established, it started to make sense.
