Year of Projects 2022: Week 39

If you caught my FO Friday post, you'll know I finished up the Brighton socks and Terrain scarf, so I don't have much on the needles right now for knitting.

Year of Projects 2022: Week 32

I've been focusing on some things around the house this week. For the first time in the 13+ years we've lived here, we've had an actual monsoon-type summer which means that all the weeds which have been waiting patiently in the ground have really taken off. Which means weeding. Not a favorite activity but we've… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 32
