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 11

This week felt like I got no crafting done. I barely made a dent in my new round of masks. There was only chaos (cables) on the needles. The pattern is approaching testing stage (I need to add the simple chart)! With Halloween events, my littlest’s Birthday, and my parents coming up for 24 hours,Continue reading “Year of Projects: Week 11”

Year of Projects: Week 10

We had a family adventure at Dinosaur Land this morning. It was damp, dreary, and quite chilly out. But the dinosaurs didn’t seem to mind. There were some other people around, but everyone did a good job of social distancing AND mask wearing. I was able to get a couple fun outdoors pictures of someContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 10”

More Chaos (Cables)

After finishing up 2 projects (totaling 5 items) last week I did the obvious, I started another. Honestly there are about 10 projects I wanted to start but I exercised some restraint instead. This is the small version of the Chaos Cables pattern I’m designing. I wanted to get at least 2 of the anticipatedContinue reading “More Chaos (Cables)”

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”

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”

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”
