Just a quick note: tomorrow's little league game is supposed to be for the Championship. It's a double-elimination play--off, meaning that when a team loses twice, they're out. I think Josh's (undefeated in the play-offs) team will play a tea... Read more

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

Ok, I learned what tready yarn is.....in the skein, it looks like it's about 1/2 inch wide, but you pull the width open to find numerous 'holes' into which you knit (and maybe crochet??) I learned how to use that yarn and knit a 'ruffle-y' ... Read more
