The Latest Baby Update

Many of you saw a recent update I gave on my Instagram stories regarding some changes that have taken place in my pregnancy this past week.  So many of you sent messages and comments filled with so much love, support, prayers, and positive thoughts; it truly blew me away.  I tend to be the type of person who doesn't like to ask for help or support, but this experience we are going through is unlike anything I have ever encountered.  I knew I was not going to be able to get through it alone, and I wanted to reach out and share with you all what was happening with us.  The crafting community is such an amazing thing to be a part of, and I am even more grateful than ever to call this community my home.  So before I delve into a detailed update of where things are at right now, I wanted to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for your support, love, positive thoughts, healing vibes, and prayers.  Thank you for being a part of this community with me, and for s

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

Please Note:  The first part of this blog post is all about handknit socks!  If you are not interested and just want to see the video, simply scroll down to the bottom, you will find a vlog and a list of all yarns and shops mentioned in both the blog and the video (formerly known as "show notes"!).  Enjoy! 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
