New York, NY

I just finished sewing on the buttons.

I am so happy with this project.  I rarely say that when I am finished with a knitted object or painting or anything I make myself.  I know the flaws or what “I should have done here or there.” But today I am happy.  This is a pattern is my own that I created while […]

It was a wacky weekend here in New England that’s really leaving its mark. We had a big snow storm that is unlike most any of us have experienced. Trees and power lines are down on almost every road you drive down. Millions of homes are still without power. We were out from Saturday afternoon […]

Congratulations to Devon – you are the winner of the Driftwood stitch markers! I’m having a lot of fun making these! I made 4 more sets that are available on Etsy. These are a bit smaller and fit a size 10 -11 needle nicely. The little blue and yellow one are my favorite so far. […]
