Social DisKnitting: Day 19

Coming at you live from my apartment (of course) to show you what projects gave me sanity over the last week. I chose to cast on the Crimson KAL first, and it is coming along nicely: I haven’t cast on the crop top yet. My goal was to keep my cast-on-itis in check, but these […]

Eco Face Pads Pattern

I’ve been working on another set of these Tunisian Crochet Eco Face Pads for a friend. You might recall I taught this as a class last year. Then I had the thought, if people can’t go to classes, bring the class to them. That’s been everyone’s plan with social distancing, right? So I took my […]

I have crocheted socks before, but I prefer to knit them, now. If yes, how long have you been making them? I crocheted my first pair for Mom for Christmas… 2011? […]

On the Mend: Darts

Taking in clothes can be tricky. Just like when you’re looking for clothes to fit, you want certain body parts accentuated and others you’d prefer to hide. For me, the latter has always been my stomach. Fortunately, there is a super simple way to take in clothes and still give your midsection room to breathe: […]

On the Mend: Shorty

One of the best things we can do to lower the impact of Fast Fashion is to keep our clothes wearable as long as possible. Whether that be fixing or altering, it means we’re buying less clothes and keeping the ones we already own out of the landfill for a little bit longer. And since […]
