Queue Challenge: August Update

This month did not go as I had planned. Students are back on campus, so work picked up. I’m finally back to a dance schedule akin to what I had pre-pandemic, and I’ve been doing what I can to help my two good friends prepare for their wedding. My personal crafting goals are understandably not […]

Summer Bow Wreath

Doing my best to catch up!! I learned my lesson with the spring wreath: only bulky yarns for the body. I’m also trying to not buy new yarn for these, so what is the plan when you don’t already have a wreath-amount of bulky yarn lying around? You hold four worsted-weight yarns together and make […]

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 […]

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?

Most of you know my day job is in marketing with an emphasis on social media. You would also know that I have a finger on the pulse of trends, but the older I get, the less inclined I am to participate, at least on my individual channels. I thought that would be the case […]
