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 […]

Project Packing: Disney Edition

Here soon, I’m going to head back to my happy place: Walt Disney World. That’s right, I am that childless millennial that’s out here to ruin your Disney vacation (this is a joke, for those who didn’t already know!). I’m so excited, ’cause I haven’t been back in a long time and so much has […]

Felted Witch Hat

“Your wretched little lives have all been cursed, ’cause of all the witches working, I’m the worst.” Winifred Sanderson My love of Halloween is no secret (Heck, I picked a spider to represent my brand), but I’m always trying to mix it with my love of all things fiber arts. Let me take you a […]

Off the Rails

The Yarn Social Summer Vacation is coming to an end, and I’m stuck on the side of the road hitchhiking somewhere… Did I bite off more than I could chew with the biggest road trip? I did. Am I sad or regretful of that? I am not. It wouldn’t have been any fun for me […]

Relocating the Stash

Because as the saying goes: “Home is where the stash resides.” I am moving. It’s really great ’cause I will be closer to work, really close to some good friends, and walking distance from some of my favorite shops and restaurants (including a certain local yarn shop…) It’s really not great because moving stresses me […]

WIP Challenge: July Update

I am still struggling with this. It’s not even that I’m not working on old WIPs. I worked steadily on two really old WIPs last weekend, but I’m not finishing anything still… Current WIP Count: 46, same as last four months… It would be up one, but I didn’t get around to casting on my new […]
