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 […]

Three Years of Adventures

It screamed at me to be a summer top, and I’ve narrowed it down to two patterns: This is the Captiva Top, […]

On the “Road” Again

After all the fun that was had during last year’s Yarn Social Bingo, how could I pass up on another summer yarn adventure?! This year, Yarn Social is doing a Summer Vacation. It is a little more confusing than bingo, but it’s not too bad: you pick a “trip,” and the number of miles on […]

The Crocheted Bucket Hat

I’m not a trendy or hip person. I’m not down on myself by saying that, either. I’ve always had my interests. They never really lined up with what was “cool,” and that’s okay. However, my job as a content creator means my finger is always on the pulse of trends, so imagine my shock when […]

WIP Challenge: March Update

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 […]
