I saw this pattern last year right after Dinovember and I just KNEW it’d be the perfect thing for the dinosaurs to leave at the end of this year. Dinosaur Dig So I made these cute little T-rexes, made a mess of my yarn to set the stage, ordered up some yarn, and started knitting. […]
As I was frantically knitting this morning, and thinking about how bad I am at presentation (wrapping, arranging, etc) I realized that maybe i can shift my thinking from “I suck at wrapping,” to “I expand so much energy in the making of gifts, (and I’m usually down to the wire, knitting or sewing in […]
