I finished one pair of socks and had to start this pair almost immediately. This is another skein of yarn from Area 51 Fibres and I am just completely in love.

Today I'm showing off the start of my Harmonize shawl, as well as the rad new project bag that my SIL gave me for xmas. The Incyanity yarn was also an xmas gift, from my spouse. It's a wool/silk blend that is way too pretty to turn into socks. I don't think I've ever knit... Continue Reading →

No real post here today because I'm off spending the holiday with family! I hope you all had a great day today too!

For the uninitiated, superxmas is that wonderful day after xmas where you can stay in your pajamas all day and you don't have to... Continue Reading →
Every year when I was little my family used to make these fried treats for xmas. Then when I moved out they stopped. A few years ago my spouse and I decided to start up the tradition again. Two batches take most of a day to make but they're totally worth it!My mom's recipe -... Continue Reading →
