I am so proud! Even after all my new cast-ons this month, I still managed to bring the WIP count down! It’s only by one, but hey, that’s down! I did have one finish from the pre-2021 list, and funny enough, I didn’t even start it. A friend of mine has a grandmother who was […]Read More WIP Challenge: March Update
Literally! My sister and I are very, very different (and I don’t think she reads this blog, but I guess we’ll find out!). She never had much interest in fiber arts until she, like many others, found herself with fewer work hours when the pandemic hit. To raise a little extra money, she busted out […]Read More Help a Sister Out
And I hope the door hits it on the way out. I also hope that you’ve made it to the end of this collectively horrid year. I’d say “I hope you’ve made it well,” but why add extra requirements? It was hard enough to make it here at all. So if you did, I’m proud […]Read More Goodbye, 2020
I am so close and so far away from finishing my 19th Amendment knits (to wear when I work the polls on Nov. 3). My Together We Stand is blocking, and all that’s left to do there is to weave in the ends. My plan was to make the Up to No Good mitts from […]Read More A Craft Quiz
Funny enough, just as I would be if Faire had gone on, I’m pretty sick of spinning now. The good news is I don’t have to, now! I finished up my Spin Together competition. It wasn’t my best, I didn’t even make the mile, but I had at least something to turn in to my […]Read More Adventures NOT at the Ren Fest: Sixth Weekend
Finished up another square of the My Years in Yarn(Ravelry link) blanket last night: This one shows quite a trend since May… Everything was blue or gray (or both). So it came around to adding a cat square for the Many Cat’s Cushion, and I think I’ll mix it up; I’ll add some green to […]Read More Color Me Impressed
Not too long ago, I had a heck of a time getting some crocheted squares to lay flat. It took binging all of Floor is Lava to figure it out, but I did! While that was certainly the hardest part of the whole endeavor, I kept getting a little overwhelmed at all there was to […]Read More Meow!
I did a lot better with Camp Loopy this month than last. I comfortably finished a few days before the deadline and had a blocked, pretty photo to turn in for this month’s challenge. Here it is: my Drive-In Movie shawl. I picked the Botany lab for July, since my colors were Birch and Sumac. […]Read More Camp Loopy: July
I’m on a low on the CoronaCoaster today. Cases keep going up, people are acting like the opposite is true, and we’re supposed to go back into the office soon. It’s a lot. But the yarncrafts are still helping, so that’s good. No new cast-ons since my last post, but I do have these little […]Read More Social DisKnitting: Day 126
Every once in a while, the powers-that-be put me back in my place. I found this cat cushion a little while back, and sent it to a fellow cat-loving friend, mostly as a joke. “But I actually love it,” was the response. Never one to deny my loved ones anything, I sighed, acknowledged my fault […]Read More Eureka!
