Off to the Fair

Y’all know I have a hard time turning down a challenge (and usually even a harder time completing them…). Yarn Social is back on their game with a summer-long challenge, much like their Bingo Game in 2020 and the Road Trip last year. Neither of those went very well for me, you might recall, but […]

A Decade of Yarn: 2021

I’m so, so glad that I have reached this milestone. When I started my Decade in Yarn project, I was so good about making my swatches for each project as I went. Yes, I was home and had nothing better to do, but still. I’ve said a few times that I lost a lot of […]

Hello, 2022!

Took a bit longer of a break than expected, but I think it will be well worth it! Got some great ideas and goals for this new year. But first, let’s start with the old. I won’t prattle on again about how the year made me feel, but I am going to cover what I […]

Weston Fiber Arts Museum

I took a weekend trip with a friend up to Weston, Missouri. The main goals were to visit a winery and check out Florilegium in their new (to me) space. The winery was a lot of fun, but I found out that Florilegium was closed until July. I’d have to come back another time. However, […]

WIP Challenge: February Update

I’m feeling a lot better about this challenge now. The shoot is done, and I’m looking forward to telling you all about that later. I’m finishing up gifts for (very understanding) family and friends that got pushed back because of the shoot, and I’ve made progress on some really old WIPs, like the Easter Shawl. […]

More Weaving Adventures

You may recall I took a class on tapestry weaving last month, and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much, I sought out other techniques to try and finished this small piece! Never one to waste handmade fabric, the thought before it was even finished was to make into a little notion pouch. […]

WIP Challenge: January Update

Not off to a great start with the WIP challenge… But I knew this was going to happen. I have the bucket-list shoot coming up this month, and almost all of my craft time has been dedicated to those projects. The plus side to that is almost all of those projects are Queue projects, which […]

Tapestry Weaving

I’ve been on a weaving kick lately. I’m not totally sure why, but it could have something to do with the intense deadline knitting I should be doing instead… I saw on Instagram that the Kansas City Textile Arts Center was offering an online class on tapestry weaving. Truth be told, I did tapestry weaving […]

Speedweve

Continuing on that mending kick: I do darn socks. I know plenty of knitters who will spend hours knitting socks, then once they wear holes (as all socks inevitably will), these knitters would rather throw away a good, handmade sock than mend it. For a while, I understood! The classic method of darning is a […]
