Let’s Not Continue As We Began

There’s a cheery post about resolutions sitting in the draft file at this point. It was supposed to go up a couple of days before New Year’s — but work got a little insane and I put in more overtime than planned. Then I got sick on New Year’s...

Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New

May blessings and joy be in abudance for you and yours in the next twelve months. May you find your goals within your grasp. And may we all meet again next year to raise a toast once...

Gifts of the Heart

I awoke to kudos this morning. The notification was from Archive of Our Own, known by folk who enjoy Fan Fic as AO3, and it was for a short piece — less than a thousand words — that I’d written several years ago and just moved to the site. It...

Wishing You…

Welcome to Henry’s Mills, a place where life moves at a different pace from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here, the residents enjoy the festivals and traditions that are the heart-blood of the community and hold out a hand of welcome to those weary souls...

Bits and Bobs

I have two longer posts that I need to finish up, but I’m trying to post every few days and since it’s been, oh, five, I thought I’d do a brief list of what’s happening. I have solved my yarn problem. Out of the few stashes that actually had...

Frustration

I have been working on my Evenstar shawl. Been working on it steadily since Thanksgiving weekend with only one brief trip into a side project and last night I realized the end was nigh. Unfortunately, the end was the end of my yarn, not completing the pattern. I have...

TCM Remembers 2014

I wouldn’t necessarily call it a “highlight” but one item I treasure each year is the annual TCM Remembers video. We know the big names, but there is always a number of those whose faces we recognize, even if we don’t know the name, as well as...

It’s a Mystery

One of the fun aspects about Ravelry (aside from finding folks who are just as nuts about yarn as you) is the Knit Along, aka “KAL.” Group of knitters take the same pattern and knit the item, providing encouragement and support — and often, useful...

Life is what happens…

I had today’s post all planned. It was going to be a cheery one, all about the joys of Mystery Knit-Alongs and the fun to be had there. All of that went out of my head yesterday morning when the husband called and began the conversation with the words...

Caro Kinkead

I'm a writer doing the "work a day job/write when I can/whip things into shape for submission/actually submit once in a while" dance between family responsibilities, finding time to read and adding to my knitting stash. In the meantime, I'm trying out some new things here and we're going to see what bubbles up.
