I did pretty good this month! I did purchase yarn for a project a friend requested, and then I did what I always do and bought some more. (I was at my favorite yarn store! I was supporting the local economy! Are you buying any of this!) I kept it to two skeins of undyed,… Continue reading Yarn Diet – March 2019 Review
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
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!
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
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 have a lot of pattern books. Stitch collections, patterns, and vintage patterns I got from my mom, my grandma, and thrift stores. I have a lot of other books, too. My husband has books. My kid has approximately 40 billion books. And, I have a small house. A lot of my books are stored,… Continue reading Pattern Book Chaos
