Thanks for stopping by,
I'm Courtney -
I have lupus and a crippling introverted personality that is balanced only by my extraordinarily extroverted spouse and partner. He and I share our home with our two ever growing daughters and a menagerie of animals on a little half acre homestead in the making.
I'm also the author of the book, Family-Friendly Knits! The book was a long-term goal that materialized far more quickly than expected. You can find it at the Interweave store online or anywhere books are sold.
I once used this space freely as a place to document my real life as a fierce feminist, doting mother and wife, and fearless pattern drafter. As circumstances changed and I changed along with them, I lost my way here and felt my personal life was better left at that - personal. I'm regrouping as we ready ourselves to round the corner of 2017 and I'm rediscovering a lot about myself, my people, and my path.
If you'd like to dive deeper, feel free to check out some of my past interviews. You can find a listing HERE >>
Near and Dear
Some of the things our family deals with on a daily basis are completely foreign to a good many. If you're interested in learning more about Trichotillomania or Lupus - or if you or someone you love is suffering with either, I've compiled a list of links I've found helpful.
