Alpaca Shawl

Today I am sharing one of my knit projects from the past: a shawl I made as a gift for my mother using alpaca yarn. This project was really neat because my mom purchased the yarn from a woman in her deep water class after learning of her small alpaca farm. The woman sends off … Continue reading Alpaca Shawl

Harry Potter Cookies

With the recent 20th anniversary of Harry Potter, my sister wanted to make some Harry Potter themed cookies to honor the story that is near and dear to the hearts of so many. My sister … Continue reading Harry Potter Cookies

Cat Hats

We went over to enjoy some live Canadian folk … Continue reading Tea Time

It's halfway through the work week, and I am looking forward to the weekend! I recently made a new batch of sugar cookies for Mother's Day, and had hoped to do some decorating after work today. Instead, I finished watching Season 7 of Shameless (obsessed), ran to the grocery store, and cleaned up around the apartment. Tomorrow is a work at home … Continue reading How It’s Made: The cookie

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

Have you ever been to a Sheep and Wool festival? Today I attended my first Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival at the Howard County Fairgrounds. Now, I love going to the summer county agricultural fairs, with all the exciting rides, deep-fried fair food, animals (adore the bunnies!), and prized vegetables. When I discovered the Sheep and Wool festival, I … Continue reading Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival
