Queue Challenge: May Update

I know what you’re thinking: “Hey, Emma! I haven’t seen one of these in a while,” and you are right. That’s because I have had no new finishes before this month. But hey! That’s why I picked this challenge. It’s literally impossible to have backwards progress (even though no progress means no posts…). The new […]

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 […]

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 […]

Me Made May: Week One

If I’m being totally honest, this challenge got off to a rough start. I had to keep changing my plan, and it felt like I had bitten off more than I could chew. Once I got my rhythm, I was fine. Once I finished my first outfit, I was feeling great! This is a crop […]

WIP Challenge: April Update

Y’all… it’s not good… and with Me Made May this month, it probably isn’t going to get that much better! I did finish the “Easter” shawl, at least! One very pre-2021 WIP finished makes me feel good. There were only two new projects started this month, too, but both were Shiny Object projects… I cast […]

Knitting is Sexy

CW: This post mentions previous negative body image. There’s a certain image that people have in their head of a “knitter.” I find it’s usually the cartoon granny from Looney Toons, sitting in her rocking chair, holding her knitting needles up almost perpendicular to the ground, and sock after sock falling into her lap. It’s […]

More Weaving Adventures

You may recall I took a class on tapestry weaving last month, and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much, I sought out other techniques to try and finished this small piece! Never one to waste handmade fabric, the thought before it was even finished was to make into a little notion pouch. […]

Meow!

Not too long ago, I had a heck of a time getting some crocheted squares to lay flat. It took binging all of Floor is Lava to figure it out, but I did! While that was certainly the hardest part of the whole endeavor, I kept getting a little overwhelmed at all there was to […]

My Little Secret Crop Top

It’s the end of another era. You may recall way back to my first Social DisKnitting post, I was casting on for a MKAL hosted by Jessie Maed with her new, free pattern. The idea was to have something fun to work on, together, while we were all stuck inside. So, I grabbed a cotton […]
