Practical Magic at Yarn Social

It’s time once again for Yarn Social‘s summer craft challenge! While I always have a good time, the one thing I can say of all the previous summer challenges is I have never actually completed one. Most summers just get so packed, and part of me considered not even signing up this year because life […]

Zelda Belt Bag

I’m going to be honest: I have not crafted much recently. There’s a few reasons for this, but one is the recent release of the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom game! I haven’t been so excited for a game since I was a teenager, which also means it’s eating the majority of my […]

Patterns for Mini Skeins

This will not come as a surprise to anyone who knows me even a little bit, but when Sewrella Yarn came out with a line inspired by the Disney Parks, I about lost my mind. I’m actually pretty proud I didn’t buy the whole shop. I made some concerted choices with specific patterns in mind, […]

Sunny Daze Crossbody Bags

My friends Liz and Lauren got married last weekend! And about a month ago, one of our friends shared this super fun crossbody bag in our group chat. Since we met at KU, a lot of the group has had a sunflower element in their own weddings. Since the wedding took place in the Walt […]

Recycled Stitch Markers

In many of my travels, I have had a dream. Most hotels have RFID card keys these days, and many of these key cards look so fancy. They could just be plain white cards, but most of them have fun or sophisticated prints on them. What cool stitch markers they’d make, I usually say. I […]

I think I am finally fully recovered from my swing dance weekend in Houston. That’s not to say that I didn’t have a blast and learn a lot (I also got to rock my new skirts). It was just so, so much dancing. I barely even had energy to knit by the time I got […]

Knit Skirt

Officially making 2023 the year of apparel sewing!! This project has actually been on my mind for a few months now. I had a fabulous time at a swing dance event in St. Louis, Missouri last November. A lot of the female-presenting folks were wearing these knit skirts, and they were utterly perfect for swing […]

Read my Article in Ply Magazine!

Super exciting update today! Your girl is published again! Ply is my favorite spinning magazine (because the creator Jacey used to be a local and created a nationally renowned spinning conference right here in Kansas City), so I’ve submitted many times to write for it. I finally got an assignment. Even better, it ended up […]
