The Corrugated Cowl was originally shared as a free pattern in November 2013. I’m continuing to work through my older patterns and update them and when I went to look for this file, I was surprised to find I’d drafted a matching hat. I knit myself a hat in the cream-colored alpaca to match my…

Washington Park

This has been an incredibly busy time – new job in a new home in a new state. As I sit here, I can’t help but reflect on how incredible all these changes are. It felt like the move was planned and gamed out and focused on for months then all of sudden it happened…
