Year of Projects: Week 6

I’ve been plugging away on my Chaos Cables/Handspun mash-up. This morning I started the third of three balls for the cabled section. Due to the depth and diameter of this cowl, I believe it will be prudent to bring in the cowl for the neck ribbing by about half, effectively turning it into a capletContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 6”

A Few of my Favorite Things

And I do love warm woolen mittens. I love tea, my favorite is a robust chai of any persuasion. A strong bergamot scented pot of loose leaf Earl Gray is my ultimate indulgence. Hot beverages on cool days. Coffee in the morning, with just milk, no sugar. I like fru-fru sugar-filled coffee-ish beverages. My fallContinue reading “A Few of my Favorite Things”

Year Of Projects: Week 5

Sorry friends, no finishes this week. I’ve made a bunch of additional masks, did some scrappy projects for wrangling said masks (read more about it here if you want), and worked on two other projects. Justine I’m further than this now. Justine isn’t part of my YOP projects, but I love it and want toContinue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 5”

Scraptastic

Yesterday I got the itch to work on some small projects to corral masks for myself and the kids. Our entryway is SUPER tiny, so making the most of my space is important. Additionally, since my space is SOO tiny, keeping it organized is a must. Disorganization looks like a huge mess. I made threeContinue reading “Scraptastic”

Year of Projects: Week 4

In the past 4 weeks, I have crossed off 7 items off my YOP list. I have finished many other non-list projects as well. Amusing non-YOP item first. My spouse has lamented that his masks are not the best when he actually has to talk to other people while wearing them. Like they are tooContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 4”

Boring

Me. I’m the boring one. This blanket I’m working on? She’s pretty and exciting. Project monogamy makes for boring updates. How many times a week can I really show you the same blanket? This was taken yesterday, just after adding the second set of balls. I haven’t had the time to work on “Justine” muchContinue reading “Boring”

Start. Finish. Repeat

Its already Thursday evening. I’m not entirely certain exactly how that happened. I mean, the sun has rose and set in predictable cycles, I’ve just lost track of updating before today. I started and finished another emPower Cowl this week, started on Monday (Sunday??) and finished it on Wednesday mid-day. It worked up super fast,Continue reading “Start. Finish. Repeat”

Year Of Projects: Week 3

When I first start challenges, I like to FINISH ALL THE THINGS AT ONCE!! But that is unrealistic and unsustainable. And defeats the purpose of the challenge. I’m not one to stick strictly to plans. This week wasn’t a waste by any standard. I had quite a few bonus projects… an emPower Cowl, and 25Continue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 3”

emPower Cowl: Crochet

The emPower People craftivism initiative sums up my personal beliefs rather succinctly. I believe symbolism carries heft, a visual signifier of the kind of person you are. I am very selective about the symbolism I choose to adorn myself with. Making, and wearing, this cowl isn’t a flippant decision to make the new “it” thing.Continue reading “emPower Cowl: Crochet”
