Random Thoughts from the Road

I love digital keys and checking in on your phone. It’s very helpful when you look like you need a pack mule to get all your “stuff” up to the hotel room. Rearranging the precarious load to collect your room key is challenging to say the least. I never learned to use chopsticks. I feel at this point in my…

When Knitters Travel

I ended up with one of those weird back-to-back travel events when I was actually home for not quite a full weekend.
