Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw

As of this morning, I officially have NO active projects. Old WIPS don’t count, by the way. I finished my C2C blanket for a friend, and it looks AWESOME! The only thing left to do is wash it and mail it! Since learning the C2C technique back in April, this is my 3rd throw/blanket. ItContinue reading “Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw”

Crossing the Finish Line

FINALLY, PlumBody to Love is off the needles! Firstly, its impossible to take a good picture of a sweater on yourself to showcase the best attributes. Secondly, it fits about how I expected, although the acrylic yarn is a bit stiff still (still need to wash it up). Thirdly, its SEAMLESS!!! I succeeded in myContinue reading “Crossing the Finish Line”

Hopes and Dreams

Or what I want to accomplish on my summer vacation. This summer is not looking promising for “normal”. Which isn’t a bad thing per se. As my kids get older, I feel over scheduled by mid-summer. I’m a self-proclaimed loner/homebody, so all this “stay at home” recommendation is right up my alley! I think swimming,Continue reading “Hopes and Dreams”

I Got (New) Skills!

I’ve been talking about the baby blankets for twins that I’m crocheting for a couple months now. I made the first, a bobbled pattern and was completely underwhelmed with the result. SO much that I haven’t woven in the ends and I was dreading making a second that coordinated. Now I have less than twoContinue reading “I Got (New) Skills!”

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!!!”

Progress Report: Socks, Blanket.

Today was not the day I envisioned. The confluence of my allergies and lack of sleep was not a good combination for doing my normal activities. But the combination was good to hang about and work on my “Say Yes to Pie” (working title??) socks. I am going to do the heels together, so I’mContinue reading “Progress Report: Socks, Blanket.”

The Plod

As a crafter, I go through fits and spurts of “excitement”. Mentally, the beginning and end of a project are the most compelling as the maker. The middle just plods along; particularly large projects. Right now, I have the beginnings of two baby blankets. I started one on Saturday, and one about an hour ago.Continue reading “The Plod”
