I wish I had more to tell you about these jammies, but I didn’t even follow a tutorial. I used last year’s pajama bottoms as my pattern and just added about an inch to the seam allowance. The only thing I really paid attention to was adding extra length for the rise […]
Last night at knitting group, one of our members brought two huge bags of yarn she was destashing. I told her I had a friend who would love it and brought it home with me. I’m pretty sure my friend doesn’t have a ball winder and lot of the yarn was from abandoned […]
Last night I was knitting while watching a movie and didn’t pay too much attention to my yarn. Today when I pulled my project out at soccer practice, I found I only had a tiny ball left. Luckily, I had a second hank in my bag, but it needed to be wound before […]

week 9: potatoes, carrots, cucumber, summer squash, kale, tomato, eggplant
One of the things I wasn’t expecting when joining a CSA was the enormous amount of greens I’d be receiving each week. […]

week six: potatoes, beets, bok choy, green onions, parsley, basil
