Guys, it's cold. Like, so cold. Stupid cold. It's currently 1 degree F, with a wind chill of -11. 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!*
In writing this, it's become clear to me that my goal for 2019 is to be more intentional...
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
Today's my birthday, and to celebrate, everything in my Etsy shop is 10% off through the end of October! Plus, free shipping! Also, fun fact: I am terrified of balloons popping. It's right up there with opening tubes of refrigerated biscuit dough and uncorking champagne (not that I really have to contend with champagne-based fear… Continue reading Birthday Sale!
Happy October! I love fall, Halloween, and, the holiest of all days in my calendar, my birthday. We're less than 8 hours in and I've already made a pumpkin spice cake. The month is off to a good start! I'm also working on my favorite kind of project--baby blankets. I have an order for two… Continue reading Favorite Month, Favorite Project
I was lucky to get the very basic of the basics of how to crochet from my grandma and mom, but the rest of my craft skills are self-taught. Since I pre-date the internet and YouTube (*horrified gasp*), much of what I've learned came from books, kit instructions, and trial and error. I learned you… Continue reading The Torture Blanket
Okay, I have to admit, I'm a sucker for a handsome man that can sing. I also adore Ewan McGregor. Annnnnnd he sings in Moulin Rouge, all angsty and lovestruck, too. *swoon* It's one of my favorite movies. So, I was listening to the soundtrack this week and I had an idea for a shawl… Continue reading Music as Inspiration
