kj : schnibbles of my life

My grandfather always used the word "schnibbles" to describe the bits of things on the floor, or bites of snacks that you sneak. Sometimes that's all I can get organized to keep in one place. Schnibbles.

Tag a friend in the comments who needs coffee to function.

Actually, I really just regard coffee as elixir of heaven. It’s toasty, toasty goodness and rich aroma are even acceptable without caffeine…but don’t ever try to keep me from my coffee.

Did you know that the earliest known examples of knitting were found in Egypt and are dated between the 11th and 14th centuries CE?

I’ve been seeing a lot of stuff on my dash on what constitutes a “real knitter” and I have *gasp* opinions. [cue serious Dateline NBC music] “The Knitter, we think we know her, but do we? Our team makes this investigative report!”

Fun fact: Y’all bitches did not invent…

I am totally obsessing over this lovely and whimsical art print from ashleyg on Etsy.  It’s entitled Knitty, knitty and I think I just might NEED it.  


Everyday whimsy.
