I am glad that you picked yourself up again and doing some knitting. I look forward to seeing your lovely projects. I know how tough it can be. just know that I am here. Sorry haven't post much as I homeschool my girls and I am lucky some days to check my blogs:)Praying for ya


I've been in that same place, and it's not melodramatic: seeminly small things like knitting saved my life from what it was turning into. Your corner looks so cozy, I just want to curl up in that picture. Hope you're doing well now, and that knitting is only out of joy :)


Kiki ~ Thanks for the kind words. :)

Susan ~ Yes! I think knitting is sort of like a seasonal celebration now. :) Glad to hear knitting helped turn your life around too. :)

V-Grrrl @ Compost Studios

I crocheted myself through the anxiety of Hurricane Sandy and the last days of the campaign and election. I hadnt crocheted in years, but as I became more restless and unsettled by storm preps and the rest, I craved it. About halfway done with a big purple afghan...


V-Grrrl ~ I remember reading that on Twitter. Smart! Hope we get to see the big purple afghan! Purple is one of my favorite colors. :)


I've been told by my loved ones more than once to take a "knitting time out" when I get overwhelmed and stressed, there really is nothing like the power of fiber to soothe.


Luma ~ Ah, yes, the power of fiber to sooth, so true! By the way, thanks for cluing your readers in about The Oatmeal (! Gonna have some fun over there! :)


Glad to hear you're playing with fiber again. And so glad it's cooled down so we can all get in a holiday mood...hard to do when it's in the 90's and up. :(
I really look forward to your upcoming projects!


Hi Christine ~ Yay,so glad it's cooled down! In fact, the rainy weather inspired two of the project I am working on now! :)

Let's Talk About Stix

Stix on the Beach:Tales From The Happy Hooker debuted in 2005 from Newport Beach, Orange County, California.

It quickly gained a following who then abandoned it once it was clear it was not a blog about "that kind" of hooker. A few, however, stayed for the crochet tips.

Blog is best viewed using a sense of humor.
