The Land of Red Dirt & Dead Cars

The Land of Red Dirt & Dead Cars That’s what James Taylor said about the Carolinas at one of his shows a few years ago. He’s allowed though, he’s from here. It is true though, you always see tons of dead cars along the highway, just down the road a bit from that one shoe. …

Off the Needles

Off the Needles Finally I have a finished piece to show you. I was so scared to bind off, then a couple of weeks ago I just bit the bullet and finished my first scarf. Now I’m knitting up a frenzy. I’m working on 2 more scarves for Christmas presents. This one is for my …
