Got VisiKnit back up – mostly. For some reason, I couldn’t get WordPress to store a multi-line textarea correctly. It kept insisting on putting HTML break tags at the end of each line. Very weird. So VisiKnit is back, but the sample pattern is only one line. Now I need to track down all the […]
They did it! Edwin and Annalie got married! The ceremony was simple and beautiful. They both looked great. As a groomsman, I had a perfect vantage point to see Annalie’s face throughout the ceremony. She was positively beaming. I’ve never seen her so happy. Plus, I really hit it off with the best man. He’s […]
