The Knitting Rut

Around a month ago, I wrote about suffering from a condition I called “The COVID Fog Phenomenon”. Since then, people have alternately called it other things such as the millennial-burnout, spring-fever, and plain laziness (my Dad didn’t actually use the last word but I know he must have thought that while reading my post). Well,…

French Knitting 2.0

Hello fellow knitters! Those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram probably don’t know that I recently did a Facebook Live session where I taught how a Knitting Dolly can be used in French Knitting to make an I-cord.

Dee, I thank thee!

Today I write asking you to welcome to this website one of my closest friends – Deeksha – who has very kindly agreed to do a guest blog. I met Dee (as I like to call her) when we were both in our teens and I have seen her grow into an extremely talented poet….

Creativity in the Time of OCD

Hello there! For those uninitiated in psych jargon, OCD expands to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. People with OCD tend to have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations (obsessions) that make them feel driven to do something repetitively (compulsions).
