So much better than Guns and Roses, don’t you think? In hindsight, the more accurate title would be Knitting and Roses or Mitts and Roses, but neither of them have the same ring…:) Enough with the prattle, on to the FO information! I finished my Nalu mittens a couple weeks ago, but I only recently […]
I have been peddling like a crazy person at my wheel of late. I am still working my way through the small, partially finished bumps that the woman who had my wheel sold me. I am slowly getting better at drafting and I now don’t have nearly so many fluffs in my yarn but I […]
This is a sketch I did of my apartment. I discovered that the markers I was using, unlike my usual Faber Castell pens, are not waterproof. ARGH. You can see the blurriness of the dissolved markers to the left of the balcony. As a result I had to use another marker (still not waterproof) to […]
We’ve had some beautiful sunny days lately, coaxing everything into bloom! This is my Lewisia Cotelydon which is in fine flower and that I adore for it’s pink-orange hues. An ornamental weeping cherry near my work, a classy white-pink. I love ornamental cherries because when all their petals start falling and blowing everywhere, we get […]

Here are two sketches from a trip I took a while ago. I decided to memorialize the tools required for a pleasant morning… My family has a funny little habit…at least the women in my family. We all like to drink plain hot water. People offer us tea and coffee and we shake our heads […]
I am loving all the spring flowers right now, but what is making me happiest are the meadows of arrowleaf balsamroot that are springing up all over town. Whenever I see their sunny faces high up on a hill or sprinkling throughout a park or the wild medians of Spokane, it makes me smile. They […]
I know that you all have probably seen this because I am always the last one to see the hilarious internet videos and memes, but I watched this last night with my husband and we were both totally cracking up, so I thought it was worth sharing!
Recently my knit group got together at Polka Dot Pottery to paint yarn bowls. Since I didn’t really like any of the yarn bowls that were available (all too shallow and decorated with birds on the edge that I was certain would break off at the slightest provocation) so at the urging of Molly, I […]
I was poodling about on the Internet recently and discovered some very funny llama things. Llama font! You type in whatever you want and it spells it out in llamas! It’s like llamas doing the YMCA but for all letters of the alphabet! I am deeply amused. Are you?
