My two kiddos are headed off to college, a bittersweet time for this soon to be empty-nester-mom. So proud of all that they have done and all of their accomplishments.

Seconds ago, I was making progress on the toe of the sock that I am knitting and then, I got to a part of the yarn that, for lack of a better term, I will call "fragile". You know what I mean, it's a little frayed. Even with the best of yarns, if you knit… Continue reading Knitty Confessions – #2
I started these socks, or rather this sock as there is still only one, a while ago. I'm using my own hand dyed yarn for the first time and MadelineTosh sock yarn in Edison Bulb ( I really heart this colorway).
