Welcome back, readers, and thank you for all your well wishes on the last post. I hope you are all healthy and surviving this massive disruption. Staying at home was what I expected to be doing with my March so the Stashdown has proceeded without unexpected issues. The issue I should have expected is my … Continue reading Stashdown Quarter 1: Easily Distracted
Today, dear readers, I have a FO for you! Does anyone remember when I started my Sexxxy Librarian Vest? I for one had to look that date up: I bought the yarn in 2012, and as best I can estimate, I started it over a year ago.

While I wait for the stars align, I will attempt to distract you with random posts … Continue reading Novel Concept

They were both getting ready to graduate, and I thought that a big … Continue reading Secret Sweater Reveal
