  • 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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 47

    Been making some progress on my projects. I snapped a couple pictures on my back deck a few minutes ago just for this post. Here’s what I’ve been making with my leftover sock yarns lately. I’ve used 6 partial/scrap balls so far. I would say I’m at the 30% mark. Using a size 6 needle. […]

  • More Than I Bargained For.

    I’ll admit it. I’m NOTORIOUSLY bad about guestimating the yardage for a crochet blanket. I get burned: EVERY TIME. Back around Christmas, spouse and I were at Ollie’s (a discount liquidator) just wasting time together while the kids were at school. The week’s flyer stated there was Bernat Blanket Yarns for $5 a ball: that’s […]

  • 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 45

    -ish. The week is almost over, but I’m going to make a YOP post anyway. I’m about to start the thumbs on my Mitt Mitty Mittens, I hope that get it right the first time. I ripped out the left mitten, to change the position of the thumb cable. It looks MUCH better, I am […]

  • 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 […]

  • This Wild Life

    Here at my house, the whirlwind of Easter/Spring Break/my first born’s birthday is still in full swing. Easter was the usual TOO MUCH candy. I went to Target and just indiscriminately threw bags into the cart. There was SO much candy that I had to go purchase more reusable plastic eggs, and there are still […]
