Yesterday morning, Nick was not feeling well at all. He wanted to be held so I picked him up, laid myself down on the couch and Nick lay on top of me, chest to chest. Alex brought him a cup of milk, then a book, then gave Nick his beloved yellow blankie. And when all [...]

Why do cold toes suddenly burn when they encounter warm water? Why did the dog have to eat my last chocolate chip cookie I had stashed away? Why does my nose run when I go number 2? Why do all my favorite shirts have some combination of shit, blood or bleach stains on them?

Yarn is Classic Merino by Patons in Palais (mixes of red, purple, blue and brown) and Royal Purple, pattern by Fiber Trends. They are a wee bit big around but if they did any more felting the length [...]
