Resolutions in Yarn

I really am not fond of New Year’s resolutions. To me, it seems a bit backwards to wait until the dead of winter to start “the game changers”, especially if your goal or resolution has been something that you’ve been mulling over for months. I’m the sort that when I realize I need to make…

The Mountains Are Calling

Picture heavy post! Knitting photos near the bottom! Last week Jonathan and I went on our one year anniversary trip!

“Welcome Spring” Leaf and Trellis Shawl!

Did you ladies know I lived in a dorm? Did you know that it makes taking photos of my work REALLY hard? Well…it is. Most days I’m really ambitious about it. I take a lot of time to set up and get everything perfectly placed then I wait until there is the perfect amount of…
