Ring Bearer Pillow

I’m in the wedding of a couple of dear friends coming up in a couple of weeks (cue panic). You may recall I wore a handmade jumpsuit to my friend Becca’s bachelorette party? Same bride. Becca was talking about getting a couple of generic ring bearer pillows, so I volunteered to make some instead. It […]

A Problem Solved with More Yarn

It couldn’t be done, they said! You may recall in my little gauge experiment, I was torn between two designs: the Captiva Crop (Ravelry link) and the Knot Front Crop (Ravelry link). I asked for people to weigh in, and here’s the answer I got: Do you ever have one of those moments when you […]

Summer Vacation: Gauge Experiment

I’ve officially kicked off my Summer Vacation! My first stop is New York City and I chose the Gauge Experiment prompt. I have this lovely new hand-dyed cotton from Th’red Head Designs: Cortina. It screamed at me to be a summer top, and I’ve narrowed it down to two patterns: This is the Captiva Top, […]

Me Made May: Week Four

This last outfit was a doozey! Wanted to finish the top I had started for the Yarn Social Springtime Tee Party and a pair of shorts to go with them. The shorts were easy enough, if I could just follow the directions… The seam ripper came out more times for these shorts than any other […]

WIP Challenge: May Update

It didn’t go as bad as I hoped! If I had had another 24 hours, I would have two less WIPs, I’m sure of it. Me Made May didn’t even throw me off that much. It just upped the Squirrel count considerably, but I did say if that was all that happened, I was a […]

On the “Road” Again

After all the fun that was had during last year’s Yarn Social Bingo, how could I pass up on another summer yarn adventure?! This year, Yarn Social is doing a Summer Vacation. It is a little more confusing than bingo, but it’s not too bad: you pick a “trip,” and the number of miles on […]

Me Made May: Week Three

Very, very proud of what I accomplished this week! I made a jumpsuit! Which is something I never would have imagined I would do! Never have I even rocked a commercial one, because it seemed like one of those things only flawlessly elegant people could pull off. But when my friend Becca decided her bachelorette […]

The Crocheted Bucket Hat

I’m not a trendy or hip person. I’m not down on myself by saying that, either. I’ve always had my interests. They never really lined up with what was “cool,” and that’s okay. However, my job as a content creator means my finger is always on the pulse of trends, so imagine my shock when […]

Me Made May: Week Two

A little less thrilled this week but proud all the same! I decided this week to make a dress to wear to my graduation. I had a lovely teal linen and a dress pattern already cut. That’s the thing, though. This is the same pattern I used for my bedsheet dress, McCall’s M6199. It was […]

On Masks

I had an odd moment while making my first Me Made May outfit: I questioned whether or not it would be worth it to make a matching mask. Because this time last year, like many other folks, I was stuck inside my apartment slowly losing my mind. If I were making this outfit then, the […]
