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. […]

Continuing on that mending kick: I do darn socks. I know plenty of knitters who will spend hours knitting socks, then once they wear holes (as all socks inevitably will), these knitters would rather throw away a good, handmade sock than mend it. For a while, I understood! The classic method of darning is a […]

You Spin Me Right Round

I need to give a shout-out to the universe today. Thank you, universe, for bringing me so much amazing spinning content as of late. I don’t know if more people are picking it up because of lockdowns, or because they got spinning stuff for Christmas, or if they’ve always been here and just now discovered […]

Hello, 2021

This post was written before white supremacist terrorists stormed the U.S. Capitol building yesterday, so please excuse the more carefree tone. Suffice to say, I wasn’t surprised at the treatment these violent extremists received from law enforcement, and the stark contrast from the Black Lives Matter protests last year, I was enraged. There is so […]

Where’s my Motivation?

After a rough week, I’m finally back at an equilibrium-level of general anxiety. So, it should be really easy for me to slip back into my regularly scheduled projects, right? Apparently not. Here’s my NaKniSweMo Dissent sweater. We’re a third of the way through the month, and I’m not even a third of the way […]

Spooky Stitching

Halloween is upon us, dear friends! It’s one of my favorite holidays, so I’m pretty bummed the season has been so impacted by COVID (as is everything). However, one Halloween-loving bubble friend and I decided that even if we were just sitting on a couch, we were still dressing up this year. We had to […]

A Craft Quiz

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 […]

Camp Loopy: July

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. […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 41

I hope you’re all doing well and still crafting, ’cause I was not. I had a massive panic attack Saturday morning, and nothing got done all weekend. I’ve been feeling so much better these last few days, but this post didn’t get done on Tuesday because I felt like I didn’t have much to show. […]
