Between Knits and Purls (life happenings)


You can find me on IG and Ravelry as: Andersmillknits

This week Emily was very busy with a new venture to try and augment her wedding budget with little crafty items she’s calling “ear savers”

We spent Sunday night at the vet hospital as Watson had ripped a nail out of his foot from the base and it was scary!

I was interviewed by the very kind and engaging NoToothTony. This week we spent 3 hours talking it was amazing! I don’t know when it will be up on his YouTube channel but I will let you know when!

Spring has peaked its head out in our part of the BlueGrass state of Kentucky. I have spent several hours prepping garden beads for cold hardy vegetable planting. As well, continuing to nurture the plants that have been started inside the house as seedlings.
