The Lori Shawl, designed by Carrie Bostick Hoge, is one of several designs in her latest Madder Anthology 2 that I love. I seem to have a somewhat unsung love affair with garter stitch, and this asymmetrical garter shawl has a simplicity and classic look that I know will be... Continue reading

what a great mama you are! we're at the beach with the (7) grands....with our nature ID books, of course; the windowsills turned into our nature display full of shells (ID'd of course); the 4 year old this morning came in with her hands in a fist.....full of 'rolly-pollys' that she intended to take home.
oh! we lived in Va Beach...many many years ago!!! I must admit, because we lived there, I only went to the beach off-season!!!!
