A Domestic Manifest

I make things, then I write about them.

Mother’s Day present, still in progress.

Socks are being made for the Banana for Mother’s Day. The astute reader will notice that the holiday has already passed.

He’s wearing them today (love his little heart), but that means that their pristine just-finished appearance is already gone. Long gone. The best I can hope for is a “Gee he likes those socks” picture… Read More

Squee!
