Sister Shawl: Part II

It’s a bit of a strange feeling to be finishing this up. Especially knowing that I’m going to be packing this up until my sister receives her’s. It’ll be a surprise all over again for me too! I meant to sew that little hole up, but I’ve grown attached to it. And the bit whereContinue reading “Sister Shawl: Part II”

Oh Mondays

It’s quickly approaching the afternoon, but I’ve hit the ground running today. I packed the kids’ lunches last night and set their tablets to charge for their return to school. This makes a huge difference in the morning because now I could put breakfast in the oven, start my coffee, and then help my kidsContinue reading “Oh Mondays”

Scarf for my Brother

As requested, I’m making my brother the Fourth Doctor Who’s scarf. I looked it up online and found one with a pattern from the BBC. I sketched it down on paper, bought the colors I was missing, and have been having a lot of fun with this. After finishing my Sister Shawl (more on thatContinue reading “Scarf for my Brother”

Ready for Imbolc

I don’t really do much for this holiday, but I do enjoy celebrating being that much closer to Spring when Winter begins to get dreary and drag. This year hasn’t been as challenging weather wise, but I think we all need this exhausting condition we find ourselves in to lead us into some growth andContinue reading “Ready for Imbolc”

Last week I dropped him off at the ER and, since visitors are no longer allowed due to the pandemic,Continue reading “My Husband’s Secret Sweater”

Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished

It definitely came out a bit larger than I had intended, but I did have a lot of fun making it. Once I’m finished with mine, I will write up the story that goes with it. I have until Spring to get it done so that I can send it to my sister for herContinue reading “Sister Shawl Saga: Part I Finished”

While I Was Spending Time with my Kids

I had a few different ideas about what I wanted to write about today. I’ve been mulling them over and rolling them around all day. Once the kids were home from school I set my phone aside and we played charades while having a snack. Then chores and dinner. Only then did they turn theContinue reading “While I Was Spending Time with my Kids”

Saga of the Sister Shawls

My new knitting rule is gifts are for birthdays and only for the most special and thankful of people. This is the first of the two Sister Shawls I’m making for my sister and me. I will be tucking it away for her birthday while I write up the story that goes with it andContinue reading “Saga of the Sister Shawls”

Happy New Year

We made it! 2020 is over. Only one of us didn’t last until midnight this year. We did not watch any ball drop or do a count down, but instead watched Princess Bride and then Men in Tights. I’m also trying to get a bit more organized again. I’ve been going room by room andContinue reading “Happy New Year”
