  • 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 […]

  • 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: 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 LOTS […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 14

    Welcome to my usual Sunday Year of Projects post. This week was Thanksgiving here in the states, so much of my time was spent preparing, engaging, and recovering from this meal. This left little room for crafting. I know, I’m sad too. I’m currently at 88 balls of stash yarn used for the year. 12 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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. Saturday […]

  • A Year of Projects: Week 11

    The cold seems to have settled in here. I don’t want to leave my warm bed in the mornings, and we turned on the heat. Our overnight temperatures have been enough to frost, and despite my best attempts to limp my tomato to a few warmer days, I might just need to admit defeat. Next […]

  • A Year of Projects: Weeks 9/10

    I feel the month of October was a lot of wheel spinning. I was BUSY, but I don’t feel particularly accomplished. This past weekend was my youngest’s birthday (complete with backyard party) AND Halloween. Our Girl Scout troop participated in two Trunk-or-Treats last week. The local Girl Scout troops (which ended early because of sudden […]
