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”

Year of Projects: Week 14

This week I’m back on my usual machine. I had my iPad last week, but the keyboard case decided it wasn’t going to work and my son was using it for school from 8:40-2:00 daily. Which means I will RESPOND to the other YOP posts instead of just reading them. Yippie! I am still pluggingContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 14”

Addition and Subtraction

I’m not TRYING to grow my stash. I swear! It’s just… I can spend money faster than I can knit or crochet. And the pretties… they CALL to me! We stayed in Williamsburg last week, we had an outdoor wedding to attend last weekend, and my in-laws had a bunch of timeshare they needed toContinue reading “Addition and Subtraction”

Project Notes: Kyyyyyle

I’ve been doing some guerilla gifting to my friends this year. Not out of anything except I want to make stuff, and I don’t have the space for said stuff. SOOOO I guess you could say I’m pawning off my finished objects on unsuspecting friends and using the USPS as an accessory to my shenanigans.Continue reading “Project Notes: Kyyyyyle”

Year of Projects: Week 13

Sunday?!?! (Ok now that I’m ready to publish its MONDAY) Already?? I’m still plugging away on Cardi B. I’ve also started the Kyyyyyyyyyyyyle blanket for a friend. I’m excited to finally have another crochet project on the hook! If I’m being quite honest, I think I miscalculated my corner stitches, because the squares are wavyContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 13”
