Do You Feel Lucky?

I was born, raised, and currently live in the Kansas City metro area, so the Wizards (Sporting), the Royals, and the Chiefs have been my teams my whole life. Unfortunately, that means I’ve seen some pretty rough seasons, but I’ve seen a few great ones, too! I’ve seen Sporting win an MLS cup, the Royals […]

Lunch-Hour Knitting

I am coming to terms with the fact that I’m not as prolific a crafter as I used to be. And sure, I used to have fewer responsibilities taking up my time. I would knit through classes instead of working full-time. I wouldn’t even say it was the speed at which I craft (though, I […]

Headin’ Out West

I’m looking ahead to The Studio’s Winter Retreat, which was held in downtown Kansas City last year. However, this year we’re moving the party to Gardner, an old Kansas town where the Sante Fe and Oregon trails intersected. We’re trading in our city slicker vibes for those of the pioneer! While browsing Pinterest right after […]

Yes, it’s not even Halloween yet, but we crafters always have to be looking ahead. Most of us are hand-making gifts, you know. The holiday season is a time of year where we especially look out for our neighbors, and we have a great organization that does that here at home. The Johnson County Christmas […]

Stoplight Knitting

I have a confession to make: I knit at stoplights. When people hear this, I get one of three reactions. Least often, they look at me like I’m a genius. Here and there, I get amusement, because of course I am someone who would knit at stoplights. Finally, most often I get looks of sheer […]

Come Fly With Me

Let’s fly, let’s fly away… I do love Sinatra, and I’ve been running out of flying puns! And speaking of love, I had it at first sight when I saw Wingspan by Kyle Vey. It’s such a fun design, and there’s so many ways to wear it. You can play up the wings or tone […]
