Continuing my baby hats in the softest materials I can find, this is a handknit beanie featuring three cunning little foxes. The 100% worsted wool offers a silky feel so that it is not itchy for a delicate newborn’s head.   Find it here.

Another tartan scarf in the hands of its new owner. This one is also done in the traditional 2/16 wool, using the traditional ends per inch. The counting for this one was a bit loopy, since it had an odd number of green threads halfway down the pattern,…

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
I'm a bit conflicted in how I feel about this book. The starkness of the landscape in which it takes place and the grittiness of it appeals to me very much. I love a strong heroine, which Elka is, and I liked the writing style. The plot lines, however, get ...
