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.”

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!!”

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 OFContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Weeks 15, 16, 17, 18”

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 toContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 13”

A Year of Projects: Week 12

I’m a day late in getting my YOP post written. Which I am ok with. You see, I was out of town and spent 2 days both driving and enjoying some quality time with my friends. On Saturday, I was disappointed to find out that Knit With in Chestnut Hill is now permanently closed. SaturdayContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 12”

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

My daughter needs a new hat this year. I made her the Antler Toque from Tin Can Knits a few winters ago. But kids grow A LOT between kindergarten and 2nd grade. Also, her hat went through the hot wash…. but I digress. I started a new hat for her. I want it to beContinue reading “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back”

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 beenContinue reading “Occupied. Ish.”
