Summer is coming soon! We recently took our first family trip to Florida. It was an amazing journey with some crazy snags on the way- a trip I will remember fondly (and most likely, with laughter so hard it creates tears). Some of my favorite moments during the trip were almost the simplest, and they reminded me of life here in Maine during the middle of summer. Laying in the sand, the sun warming my skin, I drop my head… Read more »

Just in time for New England’s big ice storm to hit, I released Snow Squall. The half twist rib is fun and slightly different to work, the twist stockinette fabric reminds me of snowdrops falling, and the ribbed cable reminds me of an ice-coated branch on a tree. There’s an optional pom–if you add it, the hat won’t be reversible. But poms are fun! The yarn is The Plucky Knitter’s Primo Worsted. This yarn is so nice–the colorway, Wintry Mix,… Read more »
