It’s a little bit like Christmas around here with all of the packages I received in the mail yesterday. I’ve had really good luck with Swaptree—I’m up to 34 trades! My goal was to use all of the books, music and movies we didn’t want anymore to get digital versions of what we had […]
M got this cute pea coat from Lauren and Paul and didn’t have any hats or mittens to match. I decided to knit them for her out of some Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride I had leftover from another project. The hat was finished awhile ago, but I just finished up the mittens last week. You […]

There’s a new Indian restaurant in town and it is fabulous! It serves some traditional northern dishes, but its focus is on southern Indian food. Ever since our trip to Madurai, I’ve been a little obsessed with Tamil cuisine. (There are some beautiful photos of Madurai here on flickr. Yes, everything there really […]
Another one! In Valentine’s colors! I am totally in love with this pattern. It’s just something I whipped together after studying a lot of other tote bag patterns. My favorite part is no measuring!
