I've had this T-shirt sitting around half-knit for the past two years. I hit pause because I wanted to do a draped neckline instead of the pin-tucks, but that required planning and research – I've never done a draped neck before – and I never had time for that; or at least, the time I… Continue reading A waist is a terrible thing to mind
C has been properly signed up for Mittagstisch (lunchtime meal/childcare) on Tuesdays as of August. This is exciting for her and for me – M will be eating with a friend, and both kids have afternoon classes, so for the first time in EIGHT AND A HALF YEARS I can expect to have 8 hours… Continue reading 5 things 3.7.17
