No, no, I’m not talking bran here. I’m talking wool, in various forms. I was fortunate to have a long weekend, meaning I had Monday off for Columbus Day. It was fantastic. First, most of what was stressing me out? I got done by Sunday morning. I had a lot of time then to do […]Read More Weekend of Fiber Goodness

Most knitters, myself included, cringe at the thought of taking scissors to an FO. In this case, I […]Read More Cutting into my Knitting

At the heart of the heritage is the Kutztown Folk Festival in Kutztown, PA. The festival itself started on June 30, when I went, and runs to […]Read More The Kutztown Folk Festival
I say that like it’s a bad thing, but it really isn’t. I had a busy crafting weekend, and I’m going to tell you all about it throughout the week. Ok, I’ll tell you a little bit.
