I’m knitting! It’s only taken me the last 22 years to figure out how to knit something besides a square. What can I say? I like to think I’m pretty quick on the uptake.

I made a few Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews, and a sweater for a friend’s adorable baby.

Now I’m knitting myself a sweater. I can’t wait until it’s done.

I’ve been sewing a bit too. I’m not thrilled with the final products yet — I keep making the waists way too big, and then don’t have the patience to adjust them properly.

There’s something about potentially wearing an outfit that I made myself that seems really exciting to me. And then really dorky. As long as I don’t end up in culottes and a matching patterned top I’m ok, right?
