A Year of Projects: Week 21

I have PROGRESS! My goals include actually RELEASING patterns, not just creating and mostly writing them. This week I released Rogue Charm to Ravelry; its FREE with code: RogueCharm until 1/20. After that I’ll be adding it to my Etsy and my LoveCrafts accounts. I’ve started a 4th with fingering held double, and so farContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 21”

All the HATS.

Recently, I’ve made A LOT of hats. SO MANY HATS. 4 out of 5 of my most recent pattern releases have been hats. AND I have at least ONE additional hat pattern to release in the near future (the flat spiral one). Here are some reasons I love making hats: Great way to test outContinue reading “All the HATS.”

A Year of Projects: Week 20

I’ve been pretty monogamous on my Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend sweater (my spouse named it for me), I am on the first sleeve. The torso is MOSTLY done, but I’m not sure how I want to do the bottom. Which means that is on hold. No new pictures of the sweater. Here isContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 20”

A Year of Projects: Week 19.5

Welcome January! We are 5 days into the new year, and well, it feels just like last year. It being January, I decided to do the Instagram January picture thing again this year. I post a pic of the yarn-y things I’m wearing each day. With the cold temperatures finally hitting here, I have LOTSContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 19.5”

NYE Cast-On Party.

It’s the new year now, about 6:30am local time. I’m writing this from my phone, and the warm comfort of bed. Seize the moment, and all. The whole family stayed up until midnight, even the kids (6 & 7.5). We have been watching all the Marvel movies (in release order), last night we watched Shaung-ChiContinue reading “NYE Cast-On Party.”

That’s a Wrap: 2021

Ah. The eve of the New Year has finally arrived. I don’t really care about leaving the old year behind, but I am excited for new calendar pages. Yes, I’m the person who gets excited about new calendars and new office supplies. As with every year, I started with the best possible intents. I wasContinue reading “That’s a Wrap: 2021”

New Sweater!!

I’m bracing a bit from yesterday’s tepid mid-50’s to today’s low-40’s temperatures. I had hoped for a few more nice days before the actual arrival of winter. But we can’t always get what we want. This weather is obviously what I NEEDED, because I bound off the sleeves to this sweater last night. I finishedContinue reading “New Sweater!!”

Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Pouf.

It is currently Saturday morning. Which in and of itself, is a neutral statement. However, I started writing this post on Wednesday, a planned power outage interrupted me, and I have not made the space to finish this post until now. This is one of my best sewing projects ever. EVER. I’ve been wanting anContinue reading “Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Pouf.”

A Year of Projects: Week 14

Welcome to my usual Sunday Year of Projects post. This week was Thanksgiving here in the states, so much of my time was spent preparing, engaging, and recovering from this meal. This left little room for crafting. I know, I’m sad too. I’m currently at 88 balls of stash yarn used for the year. 12Continue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 14”
