New Pattern: Reliable Spring Socks
When I saw the colors in this yarn, they reminded me of a field
of crocus flowers. These little blossoms are often the first sign of
spring. I sometimes say that spring, as a season, isn’t reliable around
here until (at least) Mother’s Day. There’s nothi...

I had to include a small nod to Prince in the book. Now, I know that he isn't connected in everyone's mind to liberation and rights for all. But, for me, his music was a window into a world where it was OK to be a woman, man, or something people just didn't...

Nasty Nag Pouch
You don't have to use this pouch to nag yourself. It could also be used to "nag" other people. Fill it up with to-nag notes or simply use it to keep your daily supplies in order.
