I'm back from my trip to the beach! It wasn't a super long trip but it was exactly what I needed. We mostly tried to avoid crowds and we got a lot of takeout, but it was still the most I've been out in public since the pandemic. I was worried my anxiety would be... Continue Reading →
When last we left the garden experiment, I had just restarted from scratch after losing all my seedlings at the other house. Luckily everything has been growing very well since then and I'm just about ready to get some veggies! The tomatoes are still a bit small but there are a few flowers just starting...

I am back from my work and play in beautiful Hawaii. Tomorrow I'll show you my scarf progress, but for today I wanted to share some photos I took on my trip. I spent a week doing work stuff on Oahu, and then went to the big island to relax before coming home. Everything was... Continue Reading →
I haven't been posting much on the weekends due to my travel schedule, but I'm making an exception to share this photo. The spouse and I went to some museums yesterday and on the walk there we ran into these flowers and bumblebees. I was also excited to see some actual honeybees buzzing around as... Continue Reading →
You just can't visit Washington DC in the springtime without stopping to see the cherry blossoms. It was a little early today but there are already a few trees blooming. I am hoping to get another chance to see them soon, hopefully even more trees will be in bloom by then.

Between finishing my degree, starting a new job, and moving, there's just not a lot of mental or... Continue Reading →
My trip to DC was a success! I had a fantastic, exhausting time, met lots of amazing people, and even got a little bit of knitting done. In fact I met several other knitters who have had waaay more practice than me. Now I have new knitting goals. I took a few photos from my... Continue Reading →
The spouse and I took the day today and went to a nearby national wildlife refuge. They had a few trails that went out to the water, and it was quite nice. We saw this horseshoe crab near the shore. I love these guys. They look like some sort of ancient sea monster.
I've returned from my travels! I'm exhausted but it was a very productive work trip. I worked on my hat while I was away, and realized partway through that I had grabbed a pattern for the wrong weight yarn. I ended up restarting and just making things up as I went along. Not sure how... Continue Reading →
Work travel doesn't leave a lot of time for creative things, but I made sure to take a few pictures at least. I hope you enjoy them!
That was an unexpectedly long absence! My vacation was great, but when I got home I got bogged down with a very bad cold, so I used it as a small break from doing creative things every day. While it was nice to not have to worry about posting something here every day, I started... Continue Reading →
