Ever since I was really little, my parents and grandparents used to take us to this pizza place in northwest Denver called the Edgewater Inn, and they were kinda famous for the Moscow Mule cocktail.

That leaves 20% for splurges like a special dinner out, even the […]

Why do you knit, Knit?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a NEED to do something with my hands. I went to college to study graphic design, but quickly discovered I didn’t want to just design. I loved the production end just as much, if not more. I didn’t want to just come up with the idea, I needed the follow through. I loved the messy printing end, but didn’t want to give up the creative design end. So I took a break to figure things out. My parents are still bitter. And I got married, and had babies and decided what I REALLY wanted to do was be Mom. But I still need to create somehow.
