No, it hasn't. It got pushed aside when I took on my book project. Now that I have wrapped that up, patterns are towards the top of the to-do list!

Thanks for all the great pattern recs, Tien! I have made Hermione’s Everyday Socks - those were my first pair using magic loop. That’s a great pattern. I will check the rest out and the yarns! Of course, I’ll look at those, too! Erin

Let's start with the obvious: I'm on a bit of a sock knitting bender. Eight pairs since July, with the ninth on the needles right now, almost finished. Despite the tiny needles (size 1! Officially crazy!) and the thread like... Continue reading

Hey there. I am still here. I spent the first three months of this year, head down, working. It was the good kind of work - exciting, challenging, at moments frustrating, but in the end rewarding. The result? A book.... Continue reading

I mostly used small brads and picture hangers. Some required a screw and anchor. It just depends on the actual letter and how much it weighs.

Just this week I had to list our family's strengths on a form. Holy hell that was hard. I love the idea of identifying values. I bet if I asked Fatty, we would have that knocked out in much less time than it took the two of us to come up with five of our family's strengths. (I know we have them, it's just hard to quantify something you never think about, you know?)
