If you were to go and buy a cashmere sweater in a high-end store it would likely cost round about $100 at minimum. One for you, that you would be able to wear for years. If you were to buy one for a child it would likely cost you nearly as much and you may […]
What a busy, busy time it has been over the last few weeks. There is now officially a preschooler in the house, and little Cub cut 4 teeth in September, learned to crawl and has progressed on to pulling himself up on just about everything he can.
Somehow in all this chaos I also managed […]
Remember this? Cast on not long after Cub was born, this little knitted tee is finally finished! It is lovely, and not a difficult knit, but the fine yarn and lace panel were not conducive for a quick knit with two little ones!
I’ve been dreaming about this summer’s week at the cottage, and all of the wonderful time spent in the water (I’m sure the lack of central air-conditioning and the few days where the ground floor thermostat registered 30°C played no small part in my dreams of swimming…).

Day 1 of the KCWC has passed, and day 2 is well on its way, and I’m quite pleased that I managed to get in the required hours (and then some)! I even have something to show for it :: the sleepover pajamas from Oliver + S. I had been meaning to make these pjs […]
