Trying to manage to keep life simple and happy in a crooked, old, pet-filled farmhouse with an idea crazy dreamer for a husband!
Interests: Making good food from organic ingredients, living simply, running (not too fast), dreaming of traveling, sewing without patterns, photographing pretty things, and knitting with natural fibers. Oh, and cleaning up after my busy and curious little babe!

This is a VERY modified version of the Harbor Pullover. I used the pattern's sizing information, but knitted the entire sweater on size 7 needles (because I don't have a small size 8), which is not what it called for. I added the chevron pattern which is from the Antrorse... Continue reading

Love the edging - it really gives it a nice fun finish.

Not that I don't have anything to be thankful for, but I did not have time to prepare a post for today. Luckily, my husband did! Please take a moment to check out his blog post at the link below. Dads Reading: We Are So Fortunate I am thankful for... Continue reading

A new adventure place, only 10 minutes from home. Blocked from a semi-busy road by a row of trees, yet feeling like we were in our own forest world. Two plots of fir trees and the surprising discovery of a grove of American Chestnut trees, managed by the state for... Continue reading

Thank you. Yes, and if Mrs. Tiggy Winkle can do the laundry wearing hers, so can I!

Thank you CJ. Yes, easy peasy, just knit away on big needles!

Thanks for the nice comments Laura. For some reason, I really wanted fringe, even though that is probably the most impractical aspect of it!

When I first started knitting, I thought that I would never knit a shawl. I admired the beauty of other people's shawls, but always thought about how impractical they seemed. Falling off your shoulders, hanging in your way, I had no interest in knitting one for myself. But over the... Continue reading

Yes, all is quiet here at that time of night except the mice.

She is a big moon fan, so she's easy to please.

I hope some of these adventures stick with her.

It is pretty crazy to see a bunch of cars out on the ice, but it's nothing special up there.

That is the top of Long Lake looking over towards where the float plane takes off - Naples to the left.

Ice is so interesting - so many details to see!

Ice fishing, Maine style. Ice fishing, Pennsylvania little babe style. The ice. And the oddball photos of the day: The craziest insect gall I've ever seen. A dandelion blooming in February. What is going on? Continue reading

Friday night was a full moon and the little babe decided that it was a nice night for a ski. So despite having already pulled her around the woods for 2 hours earlier in the day, I donned head lamp and suited up again, this time with her father along... Continue reading

For the past several weeks, there have been mice (otherwise known as my husband) leaving notes around our house. They have been giving us clues about an upcoming trip, which was a surprise for both the little babe and myself. I was content not to know, but when the notes... Continue reading

After making the Puddle Duck for the little babe and seeing how perfect a design it is, I decided to go ahead and make one for myself. The adult version is the Nutkin. However, we don't look too matchy-matchy, since hers was knit in a natural colored worsted weight wool... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~space to wander, wonder, and explore. Even though it was just a bit more than a dusting of snow, the little babe declared that it was enough for the sled. So she got herself situated, dragging stick in hand, and I hooked up the beast... Continue reading

Wool leggings - yes please! My purple polka dog ones have been seeing a lot of use lately - I could use another pair for the rotation.

Oh, silly us. Since the temps have been well above freezing for the past two weeks, we thought that we'd head out to the lake for a foggy morning paddle. We loaded the life jackets and paddles into the back of the car and drove through dense fog up and... Continue reading

Today I am thankful for... ~beaver sightings. We visit this place every couple of weeks and this past weekend we discovered recent signs of beaver activity, something I had never seen before. I was very excited! It will be interesting to watch what happens to the stream and it is... Continue reading

We did have one clear night last week when we could see the moon - we've been living in a world of clouds and mist every since.

I was surprised at how much I love this golden yellow color!
