In the last month I've made quite a few things. I was overwhelmed with work drama so I tuned out from everything - facebook and other sites - for a bit and really just enjoyed the quiet. So meditative to bring life down a notch and just enjoy the scrumptious and squooshy yarns and the… Continue reading Quiet time produces so much joy

For challenge #2 I made an everyday sweater, in white. I know, 2 white sweaters in a month? That's absurd - you betchur sweet yarn balls it is. Never again. Now I'm off to find something more colorful!
