If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend the Australian mini-series Upright is a fearless, hilarious, and sweet road trip across the Nullarbor with a down on his luck musician, a runaway, and a piano. I’m embarrassed to say it took me until the third episode to realize the title was about the piano. Available here.


I’m on a quest to try find the best one pot pasta dishes. Why can’t all recipes be this cute? Recipe link here


I would spend dusk in this glowing treehouse every day.

Friday Favorites: Glenda Jackson, a fun Spotify game, and those mittens!

Glenda Jackson is simply fierce in the new PBS Masterpiece Theatre presentation of “Elizabeth is Missing“.


Those Mittens! I mean who could resist creating a meme out of Bernie Sanders photo from the inauguration? Even better is the story of those mittens and the woman who knit them.


One of my favorite things to do is to choose a song on my Sonos (or insert favorite subscription music service here) and listen to all the different versions. Two of my favorites are “Here Comes the Sun” and “This Must be the Place (Naive Melody)”

I think Nina Simone’s “Here Comes the Sun” my be favorite. Listen here


I saw this tea cozy on Instagram and immediately downloaded the Simply Crochet app for the pattern.

Friday Favorites: Celtic mysticism, egss, and printing

Hubert Delattre, Suliane Brahi, and Laurent Capelluto

Watching & Knitting
I’ve been alternately binging and savoring this dark gem of a TV series. Black Spot often reminds me of Twin Peaks with its strange and mysterious town folk, but it’s the shot of Celtic mysticism that elevates this nordic noir drama above all the other “missing girl in the woods” dramas.

French with English subtitles, so keep the knitting simple. Available on Netflix

And if you like your humor dark too…
The Flight Attendant made up for the 2h 35m I will never gain back after being swayed to subscribe to HBO Max to watch WW84 on Christmas night. Watch The Flight Attendant on HBO Max

The Squeals on the Bus
I’m so glad for the replay of this episode of This American Life. It was just what I needed.

Eggs in Purgatory
This egg recipe is so on the menu this weekend!

Print is Not Even Close to Dead
UK printer and type designer Tom Boulton wants everyone to print and has designed the F-Press, an affordable, lightweight, and portable press created with a 3D printer… talk about full circle! He has surpassed his crowdfunding goal and will be making and shipping F-Presses later this year.

I think I need one.
