I am cranking away on the book. Lots of knitting, lots of project juggling, lots of notes and writing. I’ve also been trying to be more determined and focused on taking very good care of myself during the process, as [...]
Remember when I said I want to go to Costa Rica and visit the sloths? They have sloths on their money!!
Thanks for following along as we had the Artemisia blog tour! Extra-special thanks to all of our lovely hostesses.
In case you missed it, here is where we traveled [...]
So now that it’s all VERY official, I can safely tell you:
I’M WRITING A @#*&ING BOOK!!!!
Really! With an editor, and a publisher, and a terrifyingly large word count! I’m both elated and scared. Both of those feelings are probably valid.
What’s it about? I can’t tell you yet.
Who is it with? Interweave [...]
Head on over to the Kollabora blog to read my interview on making, knitting, and the DIY mindset. There’s also pictures on my dog and cat, if you’re into that kind of thing.

What is Sulia?
Well the best (and funniest) description that I’ve heard [...]
I’ve been noticing more and more yarnbombings around Birmingham as I walk the dog, go out for drinks, and visit shops. I’ve decided to start adding posts highlighting some of these fun pieces of crafty installation art, to share with those of you in other places. Are you seeing yarnbombings, yarn graffiti, or as my [...]
I actually ventured out of my cave on Tuesday night to join up with some friends for knit night. In truth, I did very little actual knitting, a fair amount of ripping (lace gone wrong), and quite a bit of snacking and beer drinking. And I got to meet the delightful Popotame, our hostess’ gregarious [...]
See those cute little faces? They are the deliverers of DOOM.
I’m exaggerating. Mostly.
I injured myself night before last, and aggravated said injury yesterday, all because of baby raccoons. Oh, sure, there may have been some prep laid down by one-legged yoga balances and running, but the raccoons pulled the trigger.
