Some days, my only opportunity to make and produce something creative is in my kitchen. And that’s o.k. because cooking can be as creative or as rigid as you’d like it to be. Often times, I might look in my fridge to see what I might make that I hadn’t planned and come up with something new. Or, I might build off of a simple recipe idea: lemon goes great with white fish but needs fat, as in this case.
Enter this delicious dish I created: prosciutto wrapped lemon sole, baked, and served with lemony spinach and almond Israeli couscous. It was a hit, and so easy to make.
The first of these socks lingered on the needles for nearly a month. When I finally finished the first, the second came swiftly and had me thinking: I really should learn to knit two at a time using magic loop.
These were knit up using less than one skein of Three Irish Girls sock in this shocking lime green, and bits of ends of Malabrigo Sock in aguas for the toes and heels. I love the way they turned out. I love that almost every sock set I’ve knit in the last couple of years have been complete stash busters.
This is my favorite sock pattern–a standard 3×1 rib with after thought heel. And, it fits the doc like a dream.

I’ve been into making jewelry of late. It’s kind of this groove I am in–peyote beading, painting wooden beads, earrings. I’ve even opened a new shop, which only features this side of my making.
This summer, I made a gradient wooden necklace that features shades of orange and turquoise. I’m in love with the end product and think I could make a whole bunch of these in different color palettes to sell. Thoughts?
These beads were painted with gouache and spray sealed with Modge Podge sealant spray for a flat, matte finish. I love that they aren’t glossy looking.
Would these make a nice addition to my shop?
