This fall, I have super-limited time to do all the things I really want to do. Grown-up life is annoying that way. I’ve learned to choose my knitting/sewing/diy/crafting projects semi-wisely, based on my actual budget for time and money. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have a constantly-running list of projects in my head that…… Continue reading I want to make EVERYTHING
How was your weekend? I’m grateful to say that mine was really lovely. Saturday morning I attended a bridal shower brunch for my sweet friend Charleen. All of us girls did our part for the décor (I made a cute banner and some garland) and it all turned out really nice. On sunday, I baked…… Continue reading How Was Your Weekend?

I’m in love with my next project. It’s Amy LaRoux’ Bandana Wrap, a super-simple kerchief-inspired scarf with i-cord ties. I’m planning on adding tassels to the…… Continue reading Knitting News

So nice to have something to look forward to 🙂 It’s definitely time to knit. I haven’t been doing much knitting this summer; it’s just…… Continue reading New Knitting Project!

We had a bunch of bananas that were a little too mushy to eat, so I figured: why not? Into a bowl I creamed…… Continue reading No-Recipe Banana Muffins (Vegan!)

This picture was taken on an insanely gorgeous hike we took in the Nova Scotia highlands, along the Cabot Trail.…… Continue reading Thoughts From Our Honeymoon
Some movies and tv shows just make me want to knit. In fact, handknits are sometimes reason enough for me to watch. The tv show Call the Midwife is a favorite… so many fake babies in real mid-century hand-knits! I love how children’s knits haven’t really changed that much since then—really makes me feel connected…… Continue reading I Feel Like Knitting
Last night I made this Plum Cake, and it was really easy and amazing! Even better, it was so pretty that I was inspired to display it on this sweet little cake stand (a bridal shower gift from my friend Jan). You can find a similar one here. Here is the recipe, if you’re interested. It’s…… Continue reading Perfect Plum Cake (Vegan!)
