ZZZZZzzzzzzz…

Today was rough. In an effort to summon some “the sun’ll come out—tomorrow” sort of pluck, I whipped up baked potato-mashed potatoes for dinner and ate a huge bowl. Instead of summoning pluck, it was my old pal Morpheus. Promptly … Continue reading

What’s the frequency, Kenneth?

Picked up all the stitches for the buttonband on Cerai while getting an oil change yesterday. (It was a looooong oil change, clearly.) I often wonder how likely it is that people who knit from my patterns will have the … Continue reading
