Piles of wool before I sleep!


There is a small mountain of yarn I need to knit through. I won’t be able to do it all tonight, but I’m hoping to have most of it done by Friday. I’m feeling kind of lazy right now, plus there isn’t really that much to show, but I will post a picture when I am closer to getting through my project stack. What (if any) handmade projects are you working on?


today i feel. . . .


accomplished. I did a lot of cooking and cleaning and still managed time for me to lay on my couch and knit and listen to the ice and snow melt outside of my window. drip, drip, drip is the conversation between the icicles and the flashing on my windows. at first, it drove me crazy, but after a while I came to find it soothing. drip, drip, drip and the rhythymic clicking of my knitting needles as I blaze through my Christmas gift giving list.

thinking about gifts from the heart, and how handmade should really be called heartmade. stitching in intentions, hopes, dreams and well wishes. I love that about handmade gifts.

what is the most memorable handmade gift you have ever received?
