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 […]

Me Made May: Week Two

A little less thrilled this week but proud all the same! I decided this week to make a dress to wear to my graduation. I had a lovely teal linen and a dress pattern already cut. That’s the thing, though. This is the same pattern I used for my bedsheet dress, McCall’s M6199. It was […]

Heading West

A good, long ways west: from medieval England to the American frontier. I’ve done spinning demos out at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival for years, because I love it. A while back, though, I had an opportunity to demo in a pioneer/homestead setting. I turned it down because I didn’t have half-way appropriate garb for […]

A Super Easy Baby Quilt

As I said in Tuesday’s post, I had to bust out a couple of baby gifts for a shower with less than two weeks notice. This coworker is well worth more than one gift, too, so what to do? I chose a nursery-themed toy in a slightly bulky yarn and an old, quick baby quilt […]

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 […]

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 […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 126

I’m on a low on the CoronaCoaster today. Cases keep going up, people are acting like the opposite is true, and we’re supposed to go back into the office soon. It’s a lot. But the yarncrafts are still helping, so that’s good. No new cast-ons since my last post, but I do have these little […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 70

I don’t know about you all, but I’m starting to have actually good days for the first time since this all started. Hope it lasts a little while, anyway. After ripping out the neckline twice, I finished my bed-sheet summer dress. I’m so happy with it. Along the same line, I finished the hood of […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 63

I’m still going! Albeit slower than when we started social distancing. My super secret surprise project last week was a Mother’s Day gift, of course. When Mom took her first spinning class, she came home and wanted to through away the yarn she spun. I stopped her, singing the praises of a first-spun yarn, and […]

Social DisKnitting: Day 26

We’ve been at this for almost a month, you guys. Is this almost “normal” to anyone else? I mean, I’m still freaking out, but no where near as bad as when this all first hit. It helps me to have a semblance of a routine, anyway. Hope you all are doing well. One new cast-on […]
