  • 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 […]

  • A Weird Thing Happened

    Yesterday, I didn’t knit a stitch. Nor did I crochet or sew or embroider. Its been a pretty atypical week, to be honest. I haven’t gotten in as much time to work on my projects as I usually do. In the time I do have, I’ve been working on the Peablossom Special. I can’t wait […]

  • Reflections on Design.

    I’ve mentioned that I’ve been unofficially designing for almost as long as I’ve been knitting. Creatively exploring my skill boundaries has been fun for me. I get an idea or a shape or a color pattern in my head, and I do my best to try and get it out in yarn. My current WIP/development […]

  • Finishing Up.

    I hope. I wasn’t EXACTLY peer pressured into switching word processing software, but I’ve switched over to Google Docs from Word at the behest of multiple friends. And I won’t say its worse, but learning new programs is annoying. They are similar enough that I can do all the basic stuff, but the formatting can […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 28, 29, 30

    I blink and ALL OF A SUDDEN, its the end of March. AND the first day of spring. I for one am looking forward to blooming trees, flowers, growing grass, and open windows. I am NOT excited for the pollen-ing, but I can’t expect all the wins. My allergies are waiting to wallop me with […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 24

    I don’t know where this week went. Life was not throwing me curve balls: I’ll take it! What I did do was work on my Right Round Cowl. I’m on section 7 of 9(projected), hopefully I will have a FO next week! I also had two cast-ons. The first was an “Olympic” cast-on. Really, I […]

  • Create, Poorly.

    By the time most Januarys are over I hit what I affectionately call the doldrums of winter. All the fun stuff of winter (December holidays, my birthday) have all passed, and I’m left with dead grass and bleak skies. I did a January photo challenge with my handmades the past two years, and its been […]
