  • 2012 Project: Sky Scarf

    I learned to knit a few years ago and loved it, but between work, writing and life I hardly ever have any time to do it. So I’ve decided to ease back into knitting with a 365 knitting project. Yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds, but this is project that should be fairly easy…

  • Hello 2012, or What I Was Up To In 2011

    Hello, internet, I’ve missed you. Last winter I started off the year with the belief that I was going to blog regularly.  I thought that if I expanded my blog topics to include, well, everything, that I’d never run out of things to blog about.  What I didn’t realize was that it wasn’t a shortage…

  • Only Today Does the Fire Burn Brightly

    Yesterday is ashes, tomorrow is wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. -Old Inuit Proverb My copy of Widdershins arrived today. Widdershins, by Charles de Lint, is the sequel to The Onion Girl, which I read recently and loved. This quote was on the inside, next to the table of contents, and when I…
