Year of Projects: Week 52

Wrap it up, B! Welcome! This post culminates my first year participating in YOP (Year of Projects), a Ravelry group loosely affiliated in sharing goals and accomplishments via blog for 52 consecutive weeks. The group is in its 11th year; I will participate for another year. I’m going to call my first year goal ambitious.Continue reading “Year of Projects: Week 52”

Free Pattern: Lightning Fast Hat

The Lightning Fast Hat JUST flew off my needles. On Monday: I spun and plied the yarn. On Tuesday: I set the twist and let it dry. On Wednesday: I caked it up and knit this hat. On Thursday: I shared my pattern with you! The fiber was purchased in September 2019 at the ShannendoahContinue reading “Free Pattern: Lightning Fast Hat”

Year of Projects: Week 28

Goal share time: I can say with a fair amount of certainty, I didn’t buy yarn in February of 2021. I more than made up for it in January; I had an advent box to open for the first 2 weeks of February- but the yarn was PURCHASED in January! One of 3 months ofContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 28”

Baby, Take a Break.

A number of connotations in the title, this being Friday, the 8th of January, 2021 and all. First, I need a break from the news cycle. The insurrection of the 6th is still being processed in my mind; I have a lot of feelings right now. None of them are sympathetic to the perpetrators terrorizingContinue reading “Baby, Take a Break.”

Year of Projects: Week 7

A FINISH, FINALLY!! My Chaos Cables is COMPLETE. I know I’m yelling. It’s pretty exciting stuff. We’ve had some unseasonably chilly weather, so I’ve been wearing it inside to keep me toasty. Spouse joked that it looks like a knit straight jacket if I pull it down over my arms… He isn’t wrong. I tookContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 7”

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”

Virtually Normal

I’ve had a busy couple of days with no real “progress” on my main projects. But its all good stuff! I miss teaching even more than sitting in a cafe alone with a book, my knitting/crochet and a steamy hot soy chai. After 3 months of NOT teaching, I was contacted by one of myContinue reading “Virtually Normal”

Home Stretch!!!

You guys! I’m SOOO jazzed right now, I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to share my excitement. My “experimental” “Say Yes to Pie” socks are entering the final stage!I added the heel row on the second sock. Only 31 rows to go until I can start the (new-to-me) HEEL!! I’ve opted to complete both heels atContinue reading “Home Stretch!!!”
