Two incredibly disparate ideas

I believe I forgot to mention that I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ann Budd. Yes, The Ann Budd, prolific knitwear author and editor at Interweave Press. We didn’t have a chance to speak much, but I feel this is incredibly noteworthy for two reasons: One, it’s Ann Budd; […]

Flirting

Or: How I Spent a Portion of My Tax Refund I work in a very creative environment. Most of my coworkers create something in their spare time, be it beaded jewelry, scrumptious handspun yarn, or musical compositions, and this is a fabulous, and dangerous, thing. When I volunteered to knit […]

I do know better, really

I know better than to think that I can go to a fiber event and not buy anything. I must have gone a bit batty when I thought that I could. Allow me to explain. Last week, I discovered via one of the LYS’s Twitters that the 4th Annual KnitWear […]

I do like a challenge

A dear friend of mine is getting married in just two and a half weeks, and I am incredibly excited to be able to attend (wedding is in Colorado, I am in Florida, this is going to be the wedding for which I have traveled the farthest, and only the […]

Let’s play a little game.

April 1 is apparently “Flash your Stash” day, among other days, and while I took photos of almost all of my stash on that day, I didn’t get around to posting them here. So now I am, and we’ll play a game. It’s called “can Amy name all the yarn […]
