Two-at-a-Time: Sleeves

Live Dangerously. Danger! Danger! Danger!! I decided to just go for it, no life lines. Dove in, head first (sleeves first??) doing the sleeves two-at-a-time on the girl child’s sweater dress. It’s going pretty well, now that there is a little length to the sleeves. For the first few rounds I was questioning my sanity,Continue reading “Two-at-a-Time: Sleeves”

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!”

Year of Projects: Week 19

Ah, the glorious post-Christmas, pre-New Year week during the October-January holiday whirlwind! Like much of 2020, I don’t know what day it is, and there is no schedule to keep me grounded. Luckily virtual learning resumes January 4, so this haze of candy induced delirium won’t last forever. This week I’ve been working on aContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 19”

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”
