Magic Cake and a Blue Thread
Craving color, I've added a third project to my summer knitting. I made myself knit to a certain part of my navy blue (Taking) Forever Birthday Sweater and then I purchased Paula Emons-Fuessle's Magic Cake Ruffle Shawl . It's a simple pattern that uses up y...

May Garden: Week 2 - 2015
Clearly the bulbs have made a huge difference in the front flower bed this year! Perennials are wonderful charmers, surprising us as the spread and fill out year after year. Then they let us divide them and share them with our neighbors, family and friends,...

New Knits, New, True Knitter
Our library lets you check out materials for three weeks at a time, and you can renew materials twice. This is why I had better finally finish Susan Maushart's, The Winter of Our Disconnect: How Three Totally Wired Teenagers (and a Mother Who Slept with Her...

Quick Dollar Tree Craft Cubby!

The Knitting Mojo Returns
Funny that. It really is no coincidence that my knitting mojo has returned with the end of the school year. Somehow I imagined that school wouldn't get in the way of my knitting. I can't really say that it got in the way, but it did seem to squelch my desir...

Declutter: Ready,Set,Go!
Ooo... what a delightful photo! :) No, this is not nearly as lovely a post as the previous one, but while things are all abloom outside, there is lots of action going on inside as well. This past late winter/early spring, I have been thinking a lot about ge...

About Towns :: A Cross-City Bike Ride
On the last Saturday of April I rode my bike from my home in South Saint Paul over to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's house. Twenty miles isn't really such a feat in the biking world, but it was exhilarating and beautiful. I loved that I got to cross ...

Introduction
I am a happily married, homeschooling mother of two high school girls. Moved back to Minnesota after an 8-year "explore" in Florida. I am currently a student,studying Library Information Technology, because I think libraries are one of humankind's greatest inventions! An ISFJ, I love to think, plan and make lists, savor the seasons and enjoy the flavors of a plant-based diet. My relationship with Jesus keeps me grounded and lifts me high all at the same time. I write about all of that, plus some knitting and art too at my blog, my home online since 2006: Golightly Place!
