  • Bandwagon Crochet

    No. I’m not making “the pocket shawl”. IRL, I’m not a joiner. I don’t love large group activities (my local knitting people may remember how I dug in my heels about not attending “Stitch n Pitch”). I avoid (consciously or subconsciously) the Popular “thing” (current best selling books, fitness fads, fashion trends, pop music). Maybe […]

  • No Raygrats

    OK, maybe one regret. I stayed up WAYYYYY too late last night. I HAD TO FINISH my giant Randclaw Blanket. I was so close, that I just wanted to have it done. Yeah, I wove in the ends and sewed them down to secure them. Me from last night had no respect for me of […]

  • 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. It […]

  • The Unassuming Hat

    Have you ever found a pattern that you don’t get bored knitting? Usually I dislike making the same thing twice (or more) but honestly, I’ve knit this hat 4 times already. I have plans to make at least 2 more (similar to the white long brim one). The first two knits of this hat I […]

  • 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’m […]
