  • 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 […]

  • Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Drawstring Bags and Zippered Pouches

    Today I got the iron out to FINALLY add my daughter’s Girl Scout Patches to her sash. And while the iron was ALREADY out, wouldn’t it just be a fine time to go ahead and sew some bags with stash/scraps. Adorable!! First I made this little pooch pouch! I had initially got the fat quarter […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 32

    Its Sunday again! I took some pictures. But it seems every time I go to sit down and type, an emergency occurs! I’m being hyperbolic of course, but I don’t feel like this week has been my most productive. I haven’t worked on my crochet top since last week. Its been SOOOOO cold again, and […]

  • 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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 22/23

    Last week, I was running late with my post. My intent was to write it Monday afternoon. Then, I got some truly AWFUL news that put me in a bad headspace for the past week. I’m still saddened, but in a somewhat better headspace today. Being confronted with your own fragile mortality through others is […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 21

    I have PROGRESS! My goals include actually RELEASING patterns, not just creating and mostly writing them. This week I released Rogue Charm to Ravelry; its FREE with code: RogueCharm until 1/20. After that I’ll be adding it to my Etsy and my LoveCrafts accounts. I’ve started a 4th with fingering held double, and so far […]
