Ventilation

The first few cotton-jersey jerseys I made had
extremely-unsatisfactory vents. I didn't want a zipper next to my
skin, so I used snaps, and it was impossible to make the placket neat.

Eventually, I...

I always write my notes very clearly and distinctly, save for an
occasional "I'll remember where I've been" squiggle, but when I go to

Mitten dryers

One week I'd been doing a lot of riding and found three pairs of socks

Fall is falling
