Garden Tour 2

Katie posted her garden last week so I thought I’d share mine too. This year we’ve put countless hours (and dollars) into making them happen. But they make me verrrryyy happy and have made for a great family project for us to work on together.  The backyard still needs quite a bit of work, but […]

Ruth’s Tee in Progress

I was making such great progress on my Bias Blanket by Purl Soho, and then last night I couldn’t resist casting on another project.  I have an issue with doing that!  I try to stay completely focused and then I get the itch to start something new.  This has become increasingly dangerous with our own […]

This Morning.

The sun is shining and that makes everything seem just right with the World,  especially when walking among the beautiful flowers and dewy grass.  My day always goes better when I take a minute to go outside and breathe it all in.  Kevin and I finished planting this weekend, now the weeding begins!  Stroll through […]

Disappearing Act

I’m sorry if it seems we’ve disappeared on you, we haven’t! A few key items on our schedules have been past so we’ll have a bit more time to dedicate to you and this blog. I have no idea where the month of May is going, but it seems to be whizzing by at breakneck […]

Pull Gaspard

  This knit was a lot of fun, but it might have had something to do with the fact that I knit it pool-side while vacationing in Aruba!   The pattern is called Pull Gaspard and you can find it here on Ravelry. I knit this in our Nice & Knit DK in the Brooklyn […]

Reinventing

I almost gave it away. I tried – multiple times. I sent picture messages to friends and family asking if they wanted this piece of furniture. My exact words might have been ” I don’t need it, want it or have anywhere to put it.” Liar! I just didn’t recognize how awesome this piece of […]
