Ask Me Stuff

This week I answered a question from NittenNurse about my degree and my line of work which was fun to answer.
Do you have a question you'd like to ask? Come ask in the thread on Ravelry.

On a Happy Note

  • Bathroom reorganization-I moved the bins I use for washing socks under the sink. I also moved our salad spinner into the bathroom since its primary use is for getting extra water out of socks once they've been washed. It's much more convenient this way.
  • I've been very much enjoying hand soap and wool wash soap bars kindly sent to me by Jessica of Soap-a-licious. The wool wash soaps up nicely and its my go to wool wash for socks. It is not currently in the store but check back soon if you're interested.
  • I ordered a project bag from Holland Handmade on Etsy. Erin also has a video podcast on YouTube.image
  • I was sick last weekend but seem to have passed this cold quicker than most of my coworkers.
