Crossing The Finish Line

Howdy, my knitting family! A special welcome to those of you who have found my blog because Pam and Hannah mentioned it on the latest knit.fm podcast. You probably want to start by reading my knitting origin story, then come back to poke around the rest of the blog. Things continue to be busy in…

The Great Sickness

How’s it going, my virtual knitting circle? I sure hope you’re doing better than I am. It’s been a rough week in the Knitting Daddy household. At the beginning on the week, my wife was sick.
