We're expecting a new person on our family in March 2019! A granddaughter and we're quite excited though they don't live nearby. We're going to have to make good use of video calls and social media to stay in touch. We can do it! My son is a huge fan of Pikachu so I sent… Continue reading A Little Kindness Monster
I tend to make the same things over, and over, and over..... Do you? I just get these favorites going and they're like old friends - familiar and comforting.

I like to… Continue reading Well Dressed Whiskey
The Ishbel by Ysolda Teague is my go-to for special occasion gift shawls. Love this pattern. Before I know it, I'm at the lace sections, so it feels quick to knit up. This one is in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk, @880 yds. LOVE this wool, soft and pleasant, but light. Added beads to the YO's… Continue reading Wedding Ishbel for Sarah
We just returned from a bus tour and family visit in Ireland. People ask where we went, and it's more like, where didn't we go? First there was some gift making for the family we would visit...
