17 degrees (F) and the snow is gently falling, time to curl up and knit, right? Not in our house, it’s time for winter romping with Puddles! So I bundle up in my Arctic Climes cowl and headband set and venture forth into the white world. Even though I’ve lived here for over 10 years, I still find new treasures around unchartered bends. Back up to the trail and around another corner lovely icicles awaited. After the adventure down, it was time for the steep hike up. Puddles, of course, beat me home and enjoyed one last branch while waiting for me to catch up. Since the first snow and subsequent outings in Arctic Climes I’ve lost 3 lbs :-). …

Mod Squad Favorites

As we prepare to hand out the physical prizes drawing the Indie Design Gift-a-long to a close, I wanted to take a moment to highlight my favorite patterns from the Mod Squad. Without these volunteers the event would not be the fun, engaging, face-paced, adrenaline pumping, crafting event to end all gifting events that it is. In considering how best to thank them for all the hours they put in over the six weeks, I thought what better way than a mod squad pattern round-up. So get your queue buttons ready, you won’t want to miss these gems!!! Not to mention it gives you plenty to craft while you wait for GAL2016. From our fearless leaders – the admins. (Okay …
