An Arkansas Adventure

The storied Bachelor/ette trip is complete! We spent the weekend in Bentonville, Arkansas, which was very cool. One of the groomsmen and I had to discuss it, because we couldn’t put into words what is so cool about Bentonville. There’s a lot to do there, including a lot of cultural and active pastimes. There’s a […]

Halter Tee

Last year, I wrote about stitching an engagement present for two of my friends, and the time is coming for them to finally get married! I am honored to be a bridesmaid at their wedding, which also means I get to be a part of a bachelorette trip coming up this month. Now, the dress […]

Queue Challenge: July Update

I had this all written up and ready to go early this week, because I was once again working the election (which was an amazing experience this year, culminating in the result that confirms my neighbors see me as a person, more than just a vessel for the next generation, so that was great). However, […]

Return of the Bucket Hat

Long-time readers may recall my coming-to-terms of my own lack of relevancy in regards to the crocheted bucket hat. It’s helped that the trend is still going strong. I found (on Instagram and TikTok, of all places) a free, popular bucket hat pattern from Hobbii. I thought it was cute and a little more utilitarian […]

Year of Stitch: June Update

This post is very late. I’ve had a rough go of it the past couple of weeks, but I’m doing better now and am ready to give you a little update on my Year of Stitch progress. The tablecloth was my ultimate undoing, I think. It’s a super cool project, but not necessarily a quick […]

Queue Challenge: June Update

Needless to say, being demoted to a second-class citizen isn’t quite conducive for fun blog posts. That’s, of course, just one part of everything we’ve had to process over last week. There’s a lot of work to be done, and that work doesn’t get done if I shun all the joy from my life. So, […]

Spring Floral Wreath

It’s finally done. The humor isn’t lost on me that I am posting this on the Summer Solstice. The second in my series of wreaths this year has changed my strategy for the remaining wreaths. The green base of this one took way to long, but then again I chose worsted weight seed stitch and […]

Recycled Yarn

Do I have a story for you today. All the way back in 2019, when I started swing dancing, I had a whole group of new friends. Most of them had zero clue about anything yarn related whatsoever. One such friend, Mark, had the worst ever scarf from Amazon. It was straight stockinette, and curled […]

Eurythmik Corset Top

Like most knitters or crocheters, if I see something I like out and about in the world, my first instinct is “Oh, I could make that.” Well, the day has finally come. I bought something instead of trying to make it myself. Let me first say that I bought it from another artist: Eurythmik. She […]

Queue Challenge: May Update

I know what you’re thinking: “Hey, Emma! I haven’t seen one of these in a while,” and you are right. That’s because I have had no new finishes before this month. But hey! That’s why I picked this challenge. It’s literally impossible to have backwards progress (even though no progress means no posts…). The new […]
