Ok, guys. It's here. I have been waiting for this May ever since last May. This time last year, I had just finished sewing my third dress for myself in as many years, and had just started using Instagram to search for sewing inspiration. Suddenly, it was Me Made May everywhere I looked, and my… Continue reading Let’s Start Me Made May!!
Happy Monday! We're up in Smithers by now, hopefully, in a house with no internet, so I prepared this little update in advance!

The theme of my knitting the past few months has definitely been sweaters. After calling it quits on my White Pine Sweater (I'll come back one day, really!), I moved on to some teensy sweaters to get my knit-wit back again. (Like sew-jo? You know?) Among Christopher's colleagues, three are expecting babies in the next… Continue reading Five Wee Sweaters
