Angst. I'm working on angst. This hat, man. It's given me fits. It's for a wonderfully patient and chill friend who is willing to work with me until I get what she wants right. The vertical lines of horizontally worked crochet are a key feature, so I can't do my normal hat construction. Nothing like… Continue reading What I’m Working On – March 17, 2019
As I talked about last month, I've put myself on a yarn diet for 2019 in order to use up some of the excellent and tragically neglected yarn that's already in my stash. So, how'd I do in February? Great! I didn't buy any yarn or craft supplies of any kind (at least since Feb… Continue reading Yarn Diet – February 2019 Review
This week's project is baby beanies. I have several balls of very nice yarn (merino/silk blends, that kind of thing) that are too small to do much else with. They'd make a good striped scrap scarf project but I don't have enough yardage to complete one and I'm not interested in hoarding them for a… Continue reading What I’m Working On – March 2, 2019

My project of the moment is a lace-weight silk and mohair scarf, but I can't stop thinking about afghans. Both in a "will someone please cover me up with one" way, as well as a "I… Continue reading Brr!*

I was fortunate enough to get several custom orders this month, and that's taken up a lot of my time. I mean the time not spent wrangling a two year old, which isn't a lot. I'm halfway done with my last custom crochet order, and I'm looking forward to working on some new projects. I… Continue reading Whew!
Step one: Finish creating my goals. Yup, it's November 7th (oops, now the 9th) and I haven't solidified my creative goals for the month. I have ruled a couple things out, though, which I guess is sort of progress. I'm not going to do NaNoWriMo. I'd still love to try this some year, but it's… Continue reading November Creative Goals

This month has been all about baby blankets! I'm working on an order for two custom baby afghans, as well as one that I'm designing for my Etsy shop. You can see pictures of that one in progress on my Instagram. I've mentioned this before, I think, but baby blankets are probably my favorite projects.… Continue reading What I’m Working On
