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”

Year of Projects: Week 16

Winning with a finish this week! I completed my Cardi B on Friday, and blogged about it here. I love it, I have just a little bit of yarn left, but am counting all 5 balls as being gone from stash. My only wish: it was chilly enough to wear around the house! Yes, IContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 16”

That New Project Itch

I’m super close to completion with my Cardi B. Which means I kinda want to stop working on it and immediately cast-on a NEW PROJECT. While I love designing my own projects/patterns, I don’t always love deciding what finishing to include. My Cardi B button bands are causing me some consternation. It took me multipleContinue reading “That New Project Itch”

Year of Projects: Week 15

Its Monday. I know. But I wanted a serious project update on my Cardi B project. I finished the ribbing on both the sleeves today! I am in the homestretch on the project and will finish before the end of the week! If I don’t get too sidetracked, I could finish tomorrow or Wednesday! IContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 15”

Pom-Pom Wreath

As a knitter, crocheter, and spinner, I constantly find myself with odds and ends of yarn. I guess I could throw out all those little pieces, but my pragmatic side doesn’t want it to just go into a landfill. As a parent, I’m always looking for ideas to occupy the kids: without screens. My sonContinue reading “Pom-Pom Wreath”

Thankful: Holiday

The American day of Thanksgiving is here. I find the narrative of the peaceful Pilgrims to be problematic and wrought with falsehood: so I do not ascribe to it. For me thanksgiving is just that: A culmination of a year of joys. Usually I spend today with some of my immediate extended family, and occasionallyContinue reading “Thankful: Holiday”
