I am a knitting, crafting, working mother of two. This tumblr blog is where I post all of my on-the-go knitting and crafts with occasional notes about whatever is on my mind at the time. I also reblog other knitters and crafty folks on tumblr. Because it's fun. :)

Getting ready to have a late lunch. Spinning and watching the live view at Bookdepository.com. It’s actually quite fascinating being a voyeur of what books folks buy, lol.

This looks better to me than I think any predominately neutral color combination should given my color preferences…I may need my eyes checked.
