ThanksKnitting 2022

But I guess it’s ThanksCarding this year! Taking advantage of the lovely weather in Kansas City this morning to card a bit more cotton before it’s cold again. It keeps me well out of the way of the chefs! Since I have to keep most of what I’m working on for the next six or […]

Advent Knitting 2022

I am hoping to have one holiday knit that’s for me and therefore doesn’t have to be kept a surprise! Yarny Advent calendars have become even more the rage since I first discovered them, but really, of course they have. The only downside to using up to 25 beautiful, curated colors in your project is […]

Winter Knitting Trends

Every year I’ve written this blog, I think I should start my holiday crafting hiatus earlier. I don’t know if it’s me trying to be more responsible with my year-end crafting time (I doubt it), but I’m not working on anything new or exciting that can’t remain a surprise until the end of the year. […]

Queue Challenge: October Update

I honestly can’t believe it’s almost Halloween… I’ve had to reassess my goals, but fortunately, the Queue Challenge keeps trucking along! My finished queue projects are now at… 20! Three finishes since my last update! That does include my spooky Halloween wreath. The earliest finish was a set of chicken bonnets, which is a sentence […]

Spooky Halloween Wreath

Y’all. I am thrilled. Long time readers know Halloween is my favorite holiday (which I find mildly ironic for a person with a GAD. That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always scared). The idea for a seasonal wreath resolution actually started with my idea for this wreath, and I think it turned out even better than […]

Queue Challenge: August Update

This month did not go as I had planned. Students are back on campus, so work picked up. I’m finally back to a dance schedule akin to what I had pre-pandemic, and I’ve been doing what I can to help my two good friends prepare for their wedding. My personal crafting goals are understandably not […]

Summer Bow Wreath

Doing my best to catch up!! I learned my lesson with the spring wreath: only bulky yarns for the body. I’m also trying to not buy new yarn for these, so what is the plan when you don’t already have a wreath-amount of bulky yarn lying around? You hold four worsted-weight yarns together and make […]

An Arkansas Adventure

The storied Bachelor/ette trip is complete! We spent the weekend in Bentonville, Arkansas, which was very cool. One of the groomsmen and I had to discuss it, because we couldn’t put into words what is so cool about Bentonville. There’s a lot to do there, including a lot of cultural and active pastimes. There’s a […]

Queue Challenge: July Update

I had this all written up and ready to go early this week, because I was once again working the election (which was an amazing experience this year, culminating in the result that confirms my neighbors see me as a person, more than just a vessel for the next generation, so that was great). However, […]
