Yarn Picks the Person Infinity Scarf

When deciding which knitting project to work on, sometimes I start with the pattern and sometimes I start with the yarn. When I found this chunky, variegated, green, wool yarn, I knew immediately who it was meant for. Using an easy rib pattern, I knit this infinity scarf as a holiday gift for my niece’s fiancé, Cherie. Looking forward the day when this pandemic is over and we can attend and celebrate the postponed wedding of she and Aline!

A Week of Positives: Puppy Therapy

Bruno is a neighbor’s new puppy.

Duncan was adopted by our family friends. Shout out to Jeri and Mike!

Why do you think kitten and puppy videos are passed around like favorite recipes? Because cuteness is a salve for sore souls!

This summer, my kids and I have been tuned in to any mention of puppies. Details required! Not only do we ooh and ahh over photos, we want to know names, ages, breeds, and back stories.

My niece and her fiancé (shout out to Aline and Cherie!), who have been fostering puppies since the pandemic hit NYC, decided to adopt. Cherie is not only a Voice Over Artist and Photographer/Videographer, she’s a Stage Manager for the Broadway show Hadestown, so guess who she knows? Broadway actors! Mochi is now part of Aline and Cherie’s family, and Mochi’s sister Billie is now part of a very well known Broadway star’s family!
