So, it’s the last day of 2013. I always wonder where the year went – how can it already be over? 2013 wasn’t my best year, but it wasn’t my worst, either. I got married, took an awesome road trip down the east coast, cruised to Haiti, Jamaica, and Mexico, ran 3 miles without stopping […]
I’ve dabbled in sewing here and there, but I’ve never spent quality time with it. Knitting will always be my first love, of course, and spinning my second, but I’ve learned you can’t have too many loves.

Until I come up with an actual post, here’s just a glimpse at some of the things I did in June – An Event Apart Boston, a knitting retreat, and a day at Fenway Park!
I HAVE been knitting the blanket, pretty much every day, for the past few weeks. Yes, it’s getting BIG. So big, in fact, that I can’t take a decent picture of the entire thing without draping it over the couch.
