  • The Fisherman's Boot Socks

    It's a magical moment - I'm finally writing down my boot sock pattern! It's hard to say why, but I'm actually a tad emotional about this. This is the pattern I have knitted hundreds of times over my short years. At this point, whenever I pick up the needles I pretty much automatically start casting on 15 stitches per needle. That's not to say that I'm some sort of sock guru, in fact I have been doing some sole-searching (snicker) and I think I need to branch out and try more ways of knitting socks. But in the mean time, I give you - the Fisherman's boot socks!
  • Independence Day in Cutler Harbor

    Happy fourth of July! The town of Cutler really knows how to celebrate Independence day, and for good reason! The first naval battle of the revolutionary war was fought - and won - right in our dooryards (over by Bucks Harbor) by a rag-tag bunch of fishermen.  My favorite revolutionary character is a woman named Hannah (Watts) Weston. She is my great x 8 aunt. During the battle, she gathered 40 pounds of cups, plates, and spoons to be melted for ammunition, put them in a pillowcase and stuffed her apron full, and traveled 16 miles to the site of the battle all while 6 months pregnant. They were tough, hard-working people: selfless and not scared by much, and I'm proud to say I'm descended from them.
