AI Crochet

Like a lot of millennials, I think technology can be so cool. That’s not to say it can’t be problematic, and I definitely thank my smart speaker in case of a robot uprising. Seeing how far it’s come in the years I have been alive is still so impressive. The latest uproar I’ve seen is […]

Crochet in Wednesday

Crochet and Wednesday rhyme… English is weird…. I am super late to the party, but I just finished the Wednesday Netflix show. It was everything I wanted it to be, creepy AND kooky. A mystery that kept me guessing the whole time and finished everything with a bow on top. I realize now why everyone […]

Rigid Heddle Loom

As I said, I’m already on my resolutions for 2023! I’ve been sitting on this loom for too long, so I’m super excited to get started. My one problem, as it has almost always been, is hubris. “I don’t need to do any research,” I said. “I’m a classically-trained weaver. It will come back to […]

Hello, 2023

I’ve covered how my crafty resolutions went last year (the TL;DR was not well, but I’m still feeling good about what I did accomplish!). Now, I’m looking ahead to this new year! First off, I’ve decided 2023 is my year of apparel sewing. No SMART goal attached to this. I just want to put that […]

Goodbye, 2022

I hope your year went as well as mine did. Certainly had a lot of love and growth, even if my resolutions didn’t go entirely to plan. I never did publish anything, and I never even got started on the knitting machine. However, I did take some of my winter break to begin setting up […]

ThanksKnitting 2022

But I guess it’s ThanksCarding this year! Taking advantage of the lovely weather in Kansas City this morning to card a bit more cotton before it’s cold again. It keeps me well out of the way of the chefs! Since I have to keep most of what I’m working on for the next six or […]

Advent Knitting 2022

I am hoping to have one holiday knit that’s for me and therefore doesn’t have to be kept a surprise! Yarny Advent calendars have become even more the rage since I first discovered them, but really, of course they have. The only downside to using up to 25 beautiful, curated colors in your project is […]

Winter Knitting Trends

Every year I’ve written this blog, I think I should start my holiday crafting hiatus earlier. I don’t know if it’s me trying to be more responsible with my year-end crafting time (I doubt it), but I’m not working on anything new or exciting that can’t remain a surprise until the end of the year.

Queue Challenge: October Update

I honestly can’t believe it’s almost Halloween… I’ve had to reassess my goals, but fortunately, the Queue Challenge keeps trucking along! My finished queue projects are now at… 20! Three finishes since my last update! That does include my spooky Halloween wreath. The earliest finish was a set of chicken bonnets, which is a sentence […]
