a woven life

a parenting and lifestyle blog

A blip.


Are you cozy where you are? As I type this out, my nose and fingers are cold. My house may well be insulated with cardstock. One layer. My eyelids are cold. I did escape the chilly confines of my home this afternoon. I basked in the relative warmth of Emily’s digs. I left the walking dingo-pajama with his father and away I did fly.

At Emily’s there was knitting to be marveled:

Coffee cozy.


That is a french press cozy. Way too awesome. I can’t manage anything beyond garter stitch. I’ve been contemplating a quilted press cozy for some time. I may just be motivated to do so.



Emmy-lou’s hands are currently churning out baby hats. Super-cute-uber-soft-to-die-for baby hats. I am going to get one of these under my belt. I know I can do it. I just have to start on one size needle then switch then keep track of  the knots. No big deal, says Emily. No big deal.

I did recently sew myself a noodlehead Supertote. It is indeed super, as the name would lead you to believe. This pattern was a christmas gift. I’m so pleased. This bag holds everything. It is currently a “diaper bag” if you will. Perfect size. Perfect number of pockets. Perfect amount of awesome.



Big enough to hold my life, but not so big as to feel like carry-on luggage, I can’t fawn enough over this bag’s dimensions. Today it carried art supplies, tons of them. More usually: a change of doug clothes, a wet bag, diapers, wipes, reusable shopping bag, first aid and life necessities bag, notebook, boogie wipes, toys, and emergency rations. I. Love. This bag. A second is in the works. More to come on that.

What have you been making?
