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.”

Goals and Intentions- January 2021 (and beyond)

Guerilla Gifting. Last spring, I started randomly sending my friends makes. It made me feel good, and I got to create without the guilt of hoarding finished objects. AND since they were surprise, just because I love you, gifts there were NO timelines, no strings attached. Let’s be honest, how many hats do you ACTUALLYContinue reading “Goals and Intentions- January 2021 (and beyond)”

2020: Wrap it up, B.

It was exactly 1 year ago when I decided to jump headlong into blogging and pattern writing. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISCELLANEOUS DESIGN STUDIO!!! 2020 was quite the year! I released 14 patterns, wrote 120 blog posts (this post is # 121 if the blog, BTW), and finished over 60 projects (a few of them neverContinue reading “2020: Wrap it up, B.”

Socks! Socks! Socks!

Say Yes to Pie. Honestly, can you say no? No whipped cream required for these tasty tootsie treats! I’m so excited to have these socks FINALLY released! After weaving in the ends of my most recent pair, I literally have NOT taken them off! The weird fraternal striping is a bonus, not a deterement. ThisContinue reading “Socks! Socks! Socks!”

Walk. Knit. Avoid Puddles. Repeat.

We’ve made it! Christmas Eve. The weeks leading up to this day have felt chaotic, honestly, more so than usual. I sent out a ton of packages (ok, like 9 or 10 and I threw out the tracking numbers) and took advantage of yesterday’s not cold temperatures and walked to the Post Office to mailContinue reading “Walk. Knit. Avoid Puddles. Repeat.”

Year of Projects: Week 17/18

Oh, my. This has been a busy couple weeks around here. My holiday projects always need to be finished before actual Christmas (since we do our gift exchanges with my family 1-3 weeks before Christmas Day). This year I had a few additional holiday gifts to finish up, making it seem really chaotic! No fear,Continue reading “Year of Projects: Week 17/18”

That New Project Itch

I’m super close to completion with my Cardi B. Which means I kinda want to stop working on it and immediately cast-on a NEW PROJECT. While I love designing my own projects/patterns, I don’t always love deciding what finishing to include. My Cardi B button bands are causing me some consternation. It took me multipleContinue reading “That New Project Itch”

Pom-Pom Wreath

As a knitter, crocheter, and spinner, I constantly find myself with odds and ends of yarn. I guess I could throw out all those little pieces, but my pragmatic side doesn’t want it to just go into a landfill. As a parent, I’m always looking for ideas to occupy the kids: without screens. My sonContinue reading “Pom-Pom Wreath”
