Hello lovely readers! I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I'm still alive and still very much interested in this blog. Life has been pretty turbulent recently, but I think I'm finally in the home stretch of all of that. I'm moving next week back to New Jersey, and I'm simultaneously… Continue reading Moving
Hello lovely readers! I'm so sorry for the radio silence here, but I had to really throw myself at the test knit in order to get it done on time, and I'm proud to say that I have!
