Idy’s zucchini bread recipe with Alaska-grown zucchini. Smells so good!

Fall.

Not the best lefse roller, but I keep trying. And I get to eat the rejects!

Couldn’t resist the Sweet Peas at the Farmer’s Market.

An early morning appointment downtown means a little time for coffee and German homework at #kaladibrotherscoffee #tintenherz #corneliafunke

Five mile run. #stubborn #fivemilerun

I taught myself how to knit from a book when I was a freshman in college at UAF. (No YouTube videos back then!) I learned the English style of knitting, versus the Continental style (I’m a thrower, not a picker). I’m happy with this method, but every now and then I try out the other method, as it’s supposed to be faster, especially when knitting with two colors, but I usually give up and go back to “my” way. I’ve recently been trying out the Norwegian purl, but it’s pretty slow and awkward. Like trying to write left-handed if you’re right-handed. Good reminder though about how beginning knitters feel.

Had a great time at #UAAkickoff!

Tried out the Speedy Selbu Mittens by @skeindeer. Thinking it would be good for a beginner Selbu mitten class. #speedyselbumittens #augustmittens #augustvotter #naknimitmo2018 #naknimitmo #lambspride #lambsprideworsted

I’ll be working at the Library booth at the UAA Campus Kickoff Festival on Saturday. Stop by and say hi!

Got to meet Oscar. He’s a cutie, but doesn’t think much of me. #rescuedog
