(Photos by Calvin.) I finished my Shalom, knit with the yarn I spun from Cinnamon (the sheep). I've made this sweater twice before, but never have I made it following the pattern exactly, and keeping it sleeveless. I had just... Continue reading

Me too!!!! That's actually the spot I made it for, but I didn't really account for opening the woodstove door (minor details!), plus we really like drying clothes right there - and dripping wet clothes on top of dry wood is no good at all. If only I could just move the woodstove over a few feet..... Hmn..... ;) ~amanda

Oh that pull to come inside is getting stronger and stronger! And with it, of course, the need to nest - to cozy up our spaces, to freshen things up, and to make sure that all the little corners of... Continue reading

After sunshine and balmy temperatures yesterday, today is damp and chilly. Just perfect, I think, for a cozy day spent in front of the fire. I wish you, too, a lovely end to your weekend! Continue reading
