A knitter’s comic life…

As some of my readers know, I am a Technology Instruction Librarian at a 6-12 school in Boston. When I’m not nerding out on tech tools, education, content management, and collaboration in real time on the web, I teach an elective to middle schoolers in my favorite hobby: knitting. Second term, I have decided toContinue reading “A knitter’s comic life…”

Holy balls!

I have spent the week getting things organized and swatching for new projects. Aren’t balls of yarn just gorgeous? I’m thinking of having my photog-ing extraordinaire, Harry S. Cahill, create a series of such yarn ball magic to frame and hang somewhere. They would make beautiful art. But, off the art, and onto the why.Continue reading “Holy balls!”

In a Pickle with Heidi and Anna…all while wearing delicious vests!

I am, no doubt, absolutely obsessed with Pickles. Yes, I do mean the spicy, vinegary cuke treats–but more importantly, for the purposes of this here site, the beauteous Pickles blog, a Norway-based blog that also features a shop of yummy yarns and patterns. If you haven’t made the Pickles blog a daily reading habit, whatContinue reading “In a Pickle with Heidi and Anna…all while wearing delicious vests!”

Should I? Favorite Finds…3,567 reasons I adore fringe footage…

How badly do I want these delicious lace-up Fringe Boots? They are exactly what I’ve been looking for…and at a reasonable $78, I’m having trouble resisting. The only problem? The boots start at size 6, and even on my best days, it’s a stretch to fit a 5.5, nevermind a whopping 6. File Under: TakingContinue reading “Should I?

Happily ever…aff…ghan?

My brother, Bryce, finally got hitched. And instead of all that traditional registry hoo, my sister and I decided to make them up something they could keep generations of “Wolves” warm in for years to come–the first family heirloom of the Wolf children clan. So, we feverishly took to crocheting up a wave-style afghan forContinue reading “Happily ever…aff…ghan?”

At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since…

Go. Now. Run. And shop at ZenThreads, the greatest of t-shirt creation on the web! Humble blogger fancies herself a t-shirt gal; if it’s not a plain white boys v-neck undershirt, then its a schmancy silkscreened one ususally of esoteric meaning, like one that says W.W.A.S.D? (think: Amy Sedaris!). But I got some pretty excellentContinue reading “At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon.

The mountain would “cow(l)-er” in my presence. Rawr!

Might I suggest that you, too, can strike a pose if you buy a deliciously over-sized recycled sweater cowl from Mountain Girl, a brilliant crafter out of Peterborough, N.H. who sells her lovely eco-friendly wares on etsy. Last week I gushed over a recycled gray sweater cowl, that I scooped it up for a mereContinue reading “The mountain would “cow(l)-er” in my presence. Rawr!”

This weekend called for rain…

As previously mentioned, a few months back I had an explosively delicious reunion with one of my best friend’s from college, Jessica “Mim” George, who has spent the last handful of years living as an ex-pat in New Zealand. And upon our meeting up again (over eggs and toast and copious cups of coffee atContinue reading “This weekend called for rain…”
