A Visit From Gaye Glasspie

Sunflower Knitter’s Guild is still coming through with these great chats from prominent knitters. We’ve had Franklin Habit and Patty Lyons, and last night, we had Gaye Glasspie of GGmadeit. I knew of GG from Instagram. She’s really well known as the “Iconic Orange Lady,” and she has such a welcoming personality. I was so […]

Project Packing: Disney Edition

Here soon, I’m going to head back to my happy place: Walt Disney World. That’s right, I am that childless millennial that’s out here to ruin your Disney vacation (this is a joke, for those who didn’t already know!). I’m so excited, ’cause I haven’t been back in a long time and so much has […]

WIP Challenge: October Update

This isn’t a huge update, but I know that shocks no one. While I haven’t been finishing a lot of projects lately, I’m not starting a lot of new ones, either. Good and bad, so I’ll take it. Current WIP Count: 49. No change from my last update. Queue Projects: 10, still no change here. Squirrel Projects: 13, […]

Knitting in the Movies

We’re still in the grips of a pandemic, but one thing that I am so happy most of us can do now, through the availability of masks and vaccinations, is going to a movie theater. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (even if I can’t understand that in my film-major heart), but there […]

WIP Challenge: September Update

Bet you thought I was done with this! Emotionally, I kind of am, but dang it, I said a year and I’m seeing it through, for better or worse. It helps that I’m really tackling my WIP spreadsheet; way less daunting when Google counts for me! Current WIP Count: 49. So, I’m up three from our […]

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Obviously, it’s not the winter holidays (but that is a close second). Fall is the best season: harvesty foods, hot drinks, hoodies, spooky times, and, of course, the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. We are returning to an in-person event, even in the face of a literal plague. While I am worried, I’m also excited. I […]

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 […]

Team Knitting

Problematic as they are, I really love the Olympics. I love watching feats of insane athleticism at all hours of the day. I love rooting for underdogs. I love the continuance of the conversation around mental health (Simone Biles is a straight-up QUEEN, now and forever). Finally, I love that yarn always finds a moment […]
