Each year I waffle on whether to make resolutions, mostly because I can’t always anticipate the way the year will go and if I’ll even want to continue what I started by the time I’m halfway through the year. So rather than call them resolutions, let’s just call them goals. Goal 1: Publish 4 knitting… Continue reading Friday Five: Goals for 2019

1. FO Alert. I finished a knit this week! Tragically, when we left on our trip to L.A. last month, I didn’t pack enough knitting. Wes accused me of planning it that way, but I actually left a project at home accidentally. What’s a girl to do but engage in a little yarn tourism? I… Continue reading Friday Five: Flamingo
