It's Not Easy Being Green
The Muppets and Kermit the Frog had a lot of great lessons, especially when it came to helping children understand differences and diversity Loving Differences Every once in a while, I get to witness someone embracing what sets them apart...their queerness,...
Loving Differences. Every once in a while, I get to witness someone embracing what sets them apart...their queerness, if you will and it's inspiring. A friend of mine just returned from Japan and she brought back two things that the Japanese have taken to a delightful extreme.

On the week where the worst N'orEaster was supposed to cruise up the East Coast, I had to drive up to Albany for work. Non-Event. Since Tuesday was supposed to have over a foot of snow, I figured I'd be working from my hotel room, and I'd be able to both knit and post a blog.

When One Door Opens... It's hard to believe that the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat is going into its eighth year, but it is. We just opened up registration for the 2015 retreat, and it's already almost full, which is great news. I think I've gushed enough about how amazing it is to be around a ...

Yarn Bombing

Annual Reset. Historically, I've always taken the week between Christmas and New Year's to clean up, get organized and try and tie up loose ends. I honestly didn't get a chance to do that this year, so I'm trying to intersperse those tasks with work. It's going a bit more slowly, ...
