those days.

You know those days that you have once in a while? You know the ones. The ones where nothing seems to go properly or how you planned? The kids won’t sleep?

WIPs Wednesday.

Unfortunately, I don’t have anything particularly interesting to show for myself this week for Work In Progress Wednesday. I seem to be at a standstill with Fading Lines, continuing to knit the never-ending fluormania socks (pictured below) and spinning on a few different projects, none of which are in any state to share since I… Continue reading WIPs Wednesday.

WIPs Wednesday … one day late!

I am going to start trying to do a weekly “Work In Progress Wednesday” post since I don’t seem to finish things very quickly these days. Funny how that happens when you have small children, two dogs and other responsibilities, huh?! Yes, it still baffles me. I guess I need to accept that there are… Continue reading WIPs Wednesday … one day late!
