True Confessions and all of your burning questions answered

The Alaska Announcement

For the past several months I’ve been eluding to big changes in my family. I’m pretty sure that at times people thought either our family was splitting up OR that we were all joining a cult. Neither is true. The family is still very much intact, we’re just moving across the continent to Alaska. That’s […]

In which I talk about my Poststitch Sock Stitch Box and yarn subscription obsession (#sponsored review)

Poststitch Box Review

At the beginning of this year I had a crazy idea to jump out of the knitting box and try new things related to knitting (but not cables. I’m not ready for cables) so I searched the internet to see if there were any subscription boxes for knitters and I found two (I know there […]

Top 3 places to find free knitting patterns

Top 3 places to find free knitting patterns

The other night I had, what I can only assume is the closest to a near knitting death experience as I ever want to be. With the new addition of the office chair for my desk, my room has become a little more cramped. I’ve used the chair’s location between my bed and desk to my advantage […]

Not a Coincidence that PARCC is CCRAP spelled Backwards

This morning my third grade son’s teacher told me, “I feel like I’m on a leash. I just go in the direction that I’m being pulled.” I can’t even wrap my head around that statement. To be the person who is in charge of the education of 18 children ever day and feel like you […]
