Second Raglan WIP

I am just having fun with raglan sweaters lately.  I started a second one that I’m knitting on my breaks at work, and it’s going to be short-sleeved. First, I must apologize for not posting at all last week.  I got sick, and have been dealing with a pretty scary health issue on top of […]

Five Things Friday

I thought doing a “Five Things Friday” would be fun.  Some are knitting/crafting related, and some aren’t.  Still, they are fun and should, and that’s what Friday’s all about, right?  Happy Birthday to my husband, Sam!!!  He’s celebrating his special day today, and I love him very much.

Off Topic: MUSE in Philly

I recently saw one of my favorite bands on Sunday.  MUSE was in Philadelphia, PA at the Wells Fargo Center on January 31, 2016 in support of their new album Drones. What an awesome show! X Ambassadors opened for them, they were pretty good!  It’s not often I like the opening band, but they surprised […]
