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 […]

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: February Update

This month has been better and still somehow worse than last… Higher highs and lower lows, I suppose. My crafting has reflected that, too. I’ve worked on a lot of projects over the course of this month, and I don’t have a lot to show for it. My current completed queue number is… 6. That’s […]

Can I Have a Wordle?

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 […]

Handmade gifts

Not to toot my own horn, but I killed it with the handmade gifts this year (so far… I have one Friendsmas still to go!). You can see them all on my Instagram, but I wanted to talk about a couple of my favorites here. First, Sharon’s Marie Callendar Pie ornament. The whole debacle brought […]

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 […]

Crochet Wall-Hanging

A few weeks ago, I participated in a staff art show at the university I work for. It was a lot of fun seeing my coworker’s work, and it’s always nice to beat back the imposter syndrome that’s built up over years of the patriarchy saying what I do isn’t art. It was virtual, so […]
