  • Me. And My Big Ideas.

    When I get an idea in my head. I CANNOT shake it. I won’t say I OBSESS about it, but I do plan on how to bring it to reality. I’ll research and plan and price my vision. This time, I’ve got my sights set on my first floor powder room. When we moved in, […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 47

    Been making some progress on my projects. I snapped a couple pictures on my back deck a few minutes ago just for this post. Here’s what I’ve been making with my leftover sock yarns lately. I’ve used 6 partial/scrap balls so far. I would say I’m at the 30% mark. Using a size 6 needle. […]

  • More Than I Bargained For.

    I’ll admit it. I’m NOTORIOUSLY bad about guestimating the yardage for a crochet blanket. I get burned: EVERY TIME. Back around Christmas, spouse and I were at Ollie’s (a discount liquidator) just wasting time together while the kids were at school. The week’s flyer stated there was Bernat Blanket Yarns for $5 a ball: that’s […]

  • Year of Projects: Week 46

    The past couple of days have not gone quite as anticipated. I didn’t really have the headspace to blog, and to be honest, still don’t. Today I have a headache, and I think its dehydration in nature. I took a couple tylenol and am pounding water. *sip, sip* I started my 2nd “Wet Your Plants” […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 45

    -ish. The week is almost over, but I’m going to make a YOP post anyway. I’m about to start the thumbs on my Mitt Mitty Mittens, I hope that get it right the first time. I ripped out the left mitten, to change the position of the thumb cable. It looks MUCH better, I am […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 44

    A YOP blog! I have not made a YOP post in almost 2 months. I’ve been doing the normal stuff. With the last 8 weeks of my YOP quickly coming to a close, I started reflecting. My goals for the year were amorphous at best. Next year I will set SMART goals- and plan for […]

  • I Blinked.

    And now its mid-June. Its summer break here. And has been for a week. We spent 2 days at the beach, where I got SUNBURN from the back of my knees to the bathing suit line (I’m at the itchy phase). I spent a lot of time in the water (my favorite!!!) and read while […]

  • New! New! New!

    Pattern Releases! I released two patterns this week! Actually, I spent most of Thursday releasing patterns on Ravelry. And part of Friday doing the social media promotion, which is super exhausting. Seriously, social media drains me. People who can promote their businesses and projects daily: I commend you! There must be a secret. But I […]

  • Oh Snap!

    A Pile of New Yarny Finds I always think of spring as the start of Fiber Fest season, even though I only go to a couple local events. Frederick Fiber Fest is pretty small, with less than 100 vendors. But two of my favorite dyers, Passion Knits and AT Haynes House Yarns, were there! Bonus […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 34, 35, 36, 37

    Oh, hi everyone. Its me, the errant YOPper. I’ve been working on a couple new designs, finalizing for release, and doing other life stuff. The Peablossom Special is DONE. I’m working on the lace charts for the “wings”, which is a SLOW process. My new torso is ready for pictures, but I will need a […]
