William H. Foege talk at UW

Today I got to attend a talk by William Foege, “Bill” as we were told to call him, at my university. If you do not know who he is check out the wikipedia article on him. It was a really inspiring talk, he seemed really personable, not at all like Richard Dawkins. Don’t get me … Continue reading

I’m currently knitting and designing a bathing suit. The middle middriff part is going to be lace. This is the most unique piece I have tried to design so far, and I decided to go all out and create my own charted lace. This is the first time I’ve created my own chart and tried … Continue reading
