  • A Year of Projects: Week 13

    As I was sitting down to write this post, I was certain that I had made a blog post mid-week. Apparently I did not. I merely thought about it. So… we can see my state of mind for the week. Think about it, don’t actually do it. Cool. This past weekend I went down to […]

  • 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 Shannendoah […]

  • Acute-ly Stashbusting

    For years, I have stoutly refused to make the same pattern twice. But as the designer, I can make the same pattern repeatedly. What’s that about?

  • 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 terrorizing […]

  • 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. This […]

  • 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, […]

  • Working for the Weekend

    This week starts a new chapter for us, virtual learning. Our oldest started first grade this past Monday, and it is going well. She is has been super independant and LOVING how grown she is with her very own Chromebook (on loan from the school). Every day she wakes up and asks if its time […]
