Quote for the Day

“What information consumes is rather obvious. It consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention.”
~Herbert Simon

What are we losing, what is becoming harmed or threatened with extinction because we allow ourselves to be consumed by all the information that is thrown at us?

Sense of fulfillment.
Spouses.
Kids.
Co-workers.
Neighbors.
Physical and mental health.
Jobs.

My First Crochet Pattern to be Published in a Magazine

So I've had a few firsts this year. First article published in a magazine, first time independently publishing patterns for my own crochet designs with the help and support of many people...

And now I'm so excited to announce that my Monte Vista Collar is going to be published in the Winter issue of Knit Circus Magazine due out this Wednesday. My first pattern published in a magazine.


It's a button up cowl made from Classic Elite's Inca Alpaca yarn. The pattern comes with crochet symbol diagrams.

I'm especially honored to be part of the first issue of Knit Circus to include crochet patterns.
