Getting comfortable with “almost”

So, here’s the thing. When I started out on this granny square afghan, I decided I wanted, ideally, a size of 5 feet x 6 feet. I’m 5-foot-9 myself, so my main goal is that I wanted a blanket that I could legitimately nap under while lying on the couch – that would cover me […]

Spring progress

I’m enjoying the pleasant sense of accomplishment of being closer to the finish line on my granny square afghan project (at least on the squares, even if the borders will still take a bit more effort), but have had to remind myself to put them aside for a few days lest my shoulder and wrists […]

It’s the last gasps of summer around these parts – Labour Day weekend hits this weekend and it’s back to school soon, and the temperatures have hit peak heat and humidity just to make sure we all realize that it’s still summer for a wee little bit longer. I mean sure, it’s also just over […]
