Ring Bearer Pillow

I’m in the wedding of a couple of dear friends coming up in a couple of weeks (cue panic). You may recall I wore a handmade jumpsuit to my friend Becca’s bachelorette party? Same bride. Becca was talking about getting a couple of generic ring bearer pillows, so I volunteered to make some instead. It […]

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 […]

Gauge Yarn

I had to make another stop while I was in Austin. You may recall from my Easter Shawl post, the yarn I’m using came from one of the first yarn shops I ever visited: Gauge Yarn. I hadn’t been back since, so I decided to fix that. Truth be told, I ended up picking it […]

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 […]

Mighty Mitten Update

I’ve been so enjoying the Mighty Mitten Challenge that Shave ’em to Save ’em put on for the month. Considering that the challenge ends tomorrow, my progress doesn’t look so great. I’m not mad about it, though: This CVM yarn has been a joy to work with. CVM, or California Varigated Mutant, is considered a […]

A Challenge and a Party

Look at me, straying from the WIP Challenge after such a good month… Last week, I hit a new low in the CoronaCoaster (not a lowest low, but a hitherto unexperienced low), and it hit me pretty hard. I barely touched any projects. I didn’t even write a post for last Thursday, just didn’t have […]

Scrappy Reusable Shopping Bag

If you, like me, were disappointed to not win a bag during ScrapsKC Get to Know Your Customer promotion (or if you just need another shopping bag), have I got a post for you! I’m going to show you how I made my donated bag. It’s big, made with almost zero waste, and you can […]

Tapestry Weaving

I’ve been on a weaving kick lately. I’m not totally sure why, but it could have something to do with the intense deadline knitting I should be doing instead… I saw on Instagram that the Kansas City Textile Arts Center was offering an online class on tapestry weaving. Truth be told, I did tapestry weaving […]

In The Bag!

Let me tell you some things about ScrapsKC, just in case you don’t already know: They sell art and school supplies that would otherwise be thrown away: business surplus, school leftovers, and donations from people in the community. These perfectly useful, “upcycled” goodies are given a second life and are kept out of our landfills. […]
