Dear Dad, It’s me, Jenn! Today would have been your 60th birthday. Life has been good down here and we miss you a lot. You’ve been gone almost eight years after a battle with cancer. There have been so many sci-fi movies we didn’t get to see in the theater, so many hockey games we […]Read More OT: Dear Dad
My cousin Carl and his girlfriend Katie are expecting! That’s two new baby girls for the family. I finished a small gift of a hat and booties set for the baby last night. I used a soft and silky Red Heart yarn and the set knit up pretty fast. I finished both booties in one […]Read More Another baby on the way!

I knit an owl tonight! I actually did for a group at Ravelry, Hogwarts at Ravelry. You guessed, I’m a closet Harry Potter nerd. I’m only now reading the books. I’m on the fifth on in the series, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” It’s a bit dragging, but is picking up. Overall, […]Read More Owl Puff
