  • 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 […]

  • Cozy Neighborhood Vibes

    This was SUPPOSED to be a knit cowl. I know, I KNOW, assigning certainty to my fiber arts is a recipe for disappointment. You see, all I needed to do was go upstairs and get my 16″ size 6 circular needed to start the project. I had IDEAS. But limited motivation- I have SO MANY […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 25, 26, 27

    Well, here we are at the end of February. My accidental absence ended. I spent February doing a lot of Instagram related stuff. And spending a lot more time at they gym. I also started running again- so far without pain. All that Physio-Therapy is really paying off! I’m doing a Couch-to-5K program, to ease […]

  • 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 out […]

  • 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 is […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 15, 16, 17, 18

    Oh, hi. Its me. I know its been about a month since I did my YOP update. So here is some stuff I accomplished in December of 2021. We/I did a LOT of holiday stuff. I baked 10 different types of cookies. Ate SOOOO many cookies. Mailed 18 packages, 60 holiday cards. Used ALL OF […]

  • Memories of: Decembers Past.

    It all started with a memory. I have the small, upholstered chest that my Grandma used to hold her yarn and craft tools in; a somewhat small thing that can tuck unobtrusively into a corner. So unobtrusive, that I had never noticed this piece of furniture in my Grandma’s house. Its small size belays its […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 13

    As I was sitting down to write this post, I was certain that I had made a blog post mid-week. Apparently I did not. I merely thought about it. So… we can see my state of mind for the week. Think about it, don’t actually do it. Cool. This past weekend I went down to […]

  • Occupied. Ish.

    It would appear that I have taken an unintentional hiatus from blogging. Whoops!! I also haven’t been engaging with social media much (posing or perusing). No real reason. I HAVE been listening to audio books verging on obsessively, for the last week…. yeah. We’ll blame that. What have I been up to? I’ve also been […]
