The Knitting Broomstick: Married to the Sweater (March 25, 2018)

I'm Wearing SOCKS! ...And a New Vlog!

March 17, 2018

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!  We woke up to snow this morning, which seems to be the norm lately!  We made it through winter with nary a flake, and yet this (almost) spring we have been getting plenty!  You just never know, I guess!  Still, I'm enjoying the opportunity to wear my handknits a little bit more before the warm weather hits!

Speaking of handknits... if you have been a podcast viewer for awhile, you will know that I am super weird about my handknit socks.  I don't wear them.  I love to knit them, but I don't wear them.  I tuck them away in beautiful boxes and hide them in the closet.  They are my treasure chests, and I would p…
