  • YOP 2023: 4/52

    I was going to write this tomorrow, on MONDAY, but here I am on Sunday night clickity clacking away on my keyboard. Its been a weird week that has put me in a weird headspace. Last week was a “short week” here, complete with internet connectivity issues (that resulted in a ISP tech visit and […]

  • YOP 2023: 3/52

    You know what I’m bad at? Going to the Post Office. I can FORCE myself to go when I have DEADLINE specific things like Etsy Orders or holiday cards. But in general I find it REALLY difficult to just go. I don’t hate going. I just struggle to make the time to just do it. […]

  • YOP 2023: 2/52

    I don’t have any real progress to report. None of my patterns have been released yet, although many of them are just patiently waiting to be. This is me just getting sidetracked instead of sitting down and JUST DOING IT. I think I should add “Just do the task” to my YOP goal, for my […]

  • YOP 2023: 1/52

    Ahhh- smell that FRESH NEW YEAR smell. I have some new YOP goals to keep me motivated to create. Some are rollover goals, like use 100 balls of yarn and use enough craft materials to keep everything in one spot. Some are NEW: Cricut projects!! One is just a checklist to release a HUGE backlog […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 47

    Been making some progress on my projects. I snapped a couple pictures on my back deck a few minutes ago just for this post. Here’s what I’ve been making with my leftover sock yarns lately. I’ve used 6 partial/scrap balls so far. I would say I’m at the 30% mark. Using a size 6 needle. […]

  • Year of Projects: Week 46

    The past couple of days have not gone quite as anticipated. I didn’t really have the headspace to blog, and to be honest, still don’t. Today I have a headache, and I think its dehydration in nature. I took a couple tylenol and am pounding water. *sip, sip* I started my 2nd “Wet Your Plants” […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 45

    -ish. The week is almost over, but I’m going to make a YOP post anyway. I’m about to start the thumbs on my Mitt Mitty Mittens, I hope that get it right the first time. I ripped out the left mitten, to change the position of the thumb cable. It looks MUCH better, I am […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 44

    A YOP blog! I have not made a YOP post in almost 2 months. I’ve been doing the normal stuff. With the last 8 weeks of my YOP quickly coming to a close, I started reflecting. My goals for the year were amorphous at best. Next year I will set SMART goals- and plan for […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 33

    Instead of agonizing that it could be “MORE” perfect, I FINALLY released another pattern. TWO in fact! Bellows Mitten In 3 sizes, uses fingering held double to create a marl effect. Perfect for partial skeins: requires 140, 170, 200 yards in each of 2 yarns. Free on Ravelry (until April 8th) with code: chill Right […]
