Year Of Projects: Week 5

Sorry friends, no finishes this week. I’ve made a bunch of additional masks, did some scrappy projects for wrangling said masks (read more about it here if you want), and worked on two other projects. Justine I’m further than this now. Justine isn’t part of my YOP projects, but I love it and want toContinue reading “Year Of Projects: Week 5”

Scraptastic

Yesterday I got the itch to work on some small projects to corral masks for myself and the kids. Our entryway is SUPER tiny, so making the most of my space is important. Additionally, since my space is SOO tiny, keeping it organized is a must. Disorganization looks like a huge mess. I made threeContinue reading “Scraptastic”

Productivity with American Gods

While sewing, I have been listening to audiobooks on Hoopla. I used to think I couldn’t do audiobooks, I was wrong. Good thing too, I like to read while I craft. Reading a book with text is not something I can do while I sew! I’ve tried, and failed spectacularly at both tasks. Last weekContinue reading “Productivity with American Gods”

A Year of Projects: Blog-A-Long I stumbled upon a Ravelry group, A Year of Projects, via another blog: Backstage Knits.

Unbirthday Productivity

The other day, I was telling you about my new design project, the Merry Unbirthday Hat! I’ve finished version 1.0 with my super amazing AT Haynes House Yarn‘s Haynesville Fingering in It’s Nobody’s Birthday. This yarn was pure joy and magic to work with. The colors are vibrant and the hand is so soft andContinue reading “Unbirthday Productivity”

Magic Yarn

Have you ever purchased a yarn so beautiful and bright and squishy that you couldn’t wait to find the perfect project? Back in June, AT Haynes House Yarns had a limited edition colorway called It’s Nobody’s Birthday (in the Haynesville Fingering base: 100% Superwash Merino, 415 yards). It was so beautiful that I NEEDED toContinue reading “Magic Yarn”

Virtually Normal

I’ve had a busy couple of days with no real “progress” on my main projects. But its all good stuff! I miss teaching even more than sitting in a cafe alone with a book, my knitting/crochet and a steamy hot soy chai. After 3 months of NOT teaching, I was contacted by one of myContinue reading “Virtually Normal”
