Free Pattern: Meta’s Bonnet

Since I had my baby in August, I’ve felt a strong drive to create, to sew and to knit and to surround my little family in handmade intentions. Maybe it’s some latent nesting. I had terrible carpal tunnel throughout most of my pregnancy that affected my fine motor skills. I’m happy to report that my […]

The Projectory at Greensgrow

Philadelphia friends! I’ll be setting up shop at Greensgrow Farm’s holiday bazaar tomorrow from 10am to 4pm.

I never really stop knitting or crocheting, even in the summer, but being able to settle in on the couch under a blanket with a cup of […]

One toe slip away from toilet paper cozies

There are two things I am obsessed with. Okay, maybe more than two things, but the trapeze, my cats and maraschino cherries aren’t relevant here. What is relevant are wool and mason jars.
