Here’s the rundown:

The yarn club that kicks ass


A few years ago, when I was running Kitchen Sink Dyeworks, I started a yarn club. When I closed down the dyeworks, ending the club was one of the saddest parts of the process. The Badass Women’s Yarn Club was one of the best, most rewarding projects I’ve ever been a part of.


C'est la vie

I’m writing this from the spare bedroom of my friends’ house, after spending a good chunk of the day packing and sorting clothing (often going: “WHY did I buy THIS? That’s SO unflattering!).

I left my heart in Oakland


The title is more accurate than the usual San Francisco based song lyric. Not that I didn’t enjoy SF, but my time in Oakland with the Kristine and Adrienne (and CLEO!) of A Verb for Keeping Warm and my friend Karen Templer definitely left me with a case of the warm fuzzies. And an almost […]

Unwind is held among a small group of knitters (less than 50!) in a lovely inn nestled in the mountains of Blowing Rock, North Carolina. […]
