I finally ventured out yesterday in search of buttons for the two little baby garments I finished a while ago. This proved to be a bit of an adventure, as I had suspected it would.

It may not be full steam ahead, but I am moving forward. In January 2018 I published the post “Changes Afoot”. I wrote this after changing to WordPress as my hosting provider. The change was actually made in December 2017, so it is not too far off two years ago. When I changed over I… Continue reading Moving Forward
It’s been a while but I’m knitting pink baby clothes again.

A couple of days after doing my post on crochet terminology, I had a phone call from a friend who wanted help learning to crochet. She had already worked out some of the basics herself, and when she came to see me she had a project with her. I asked a few questions and we… Continue reading Just to Prove a Point
