  • YOP 2023: 4/52

    I was going to write this tomorrow, on MONDAY, but here I am on Sunday night clickity clacking away on my keyboard. Its been a weird week that has put me in a weird headspace. Last week was a “short week” here, complete with internet connectivity issues (that resulted in a ISP tech visit and […]

  • Free Pattern- Giant Squishy Scarf of DOOM

    I feel guilty calling it a pattern; its so easy. Its not a pattern. Not really. Its literally garter stitch. ALL GARTER stitch. But I’ve done the work so I can tell you the finished dimensions, needle sizes, and how much yarn you need. NO guessing. Project Backstory Because this is the internet and bloggers […]

  • YOP 2023: 1/52

    Ahhh- smell that FRESH NEW YEAR smell. I have some new YOP goals to keep me motivated to create. Some are rollover goals, like use 100 balls of yarn and use enough craft materials to keep everything in one spot. Some are NEW: Cricut projects!! One is just a checklist to release a HUGE backlog […]

  • Good-bye 2022

    Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Wellllllll. 2022 was the worst and I’m glad to see it go. The latter half was a giant struggle and the year felt like non-stop loss punctuated with disappointment. I’m looking forward to the new calendar year, and a recommitment to myself and my projects. […]

  • Finally Finished

    I have recently had the feeling of all my fiber projects being in various states of undone. Which is accurate, because at any given time I have a handful of things going. Usually I can keep plugging away and finish things up and feel fine about it. Sometimes my brain gets stressed out over all […]

  • Year of Projects: Week 46

    The past couple of days have not gone quite as anticipated. I didn’t really have the headspace to blog, and to be honest, still don’t. Today I have a headache, and I think its dehydration in nature. I took a couple tylenol and am pounding water. *sip, sip* I started my 2nd “Wet Your Plants” […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 44

    A YOP blog! I have not made a YOP post in almost 2 months. I’ve been doing the normal stuff. With the last 8 weeks of my YOP quickly coming to a close, I started reflecting. My goals for the year were amorphous at best. Next year I will set SMART goals- and plan for […]

  • I Blinked.

    And now its mid-June. Its summer break here. And has been for a week. We spent 2 days at the beach, where I got SUNBURN from the back of my knees to the bathing suit line (I’m at the itchy phase). I spent a lot of time in the water (my favorite!!!) and read while […]

  • New! New! New!

    Pattern Releases! I released two patterns this week! Actually, I spent most of Thursday releasing patterns on Ravelry. And part of Friday doing the social media promotion, which is super exhausting. Seriously, social media drains me. People who can promote their businesses and projects daily: I commend you! There must be a secret. But I […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 34, 35, 36, 37

    Oh, hi everyone. Its me, the errant YOPper. I’ve been working on a couple new designs, finalizing for release, and doing other life stuff. The Peablossom Special is DONE. I’m working on the lace charts for the “wings”, which is a SLOW process. My new torso is ready for pictures, but I will need a […]
