WIP Challenge: July Update

I am still struggling with this. It’s not even that I’m not working on old WIPs. I worked steadily on two really old WIPs last weekend, but I’m not finishing anything still… Current WIP Count: 46, same as last four months… It would be up one, but I didn’t get around to casting on my new […]

WIP Challenge: May Update

It didn’t go as bad as I hoped! If I had had another 24 hours, I would have two less WIPs, I’m sure of it. Me Made May didn’t even throw me off that much. It just upped the Squirrel count considerably, but I did say if that was all that happened, I was a […]

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 […]

WIP Challenge: March Update

I am so proud! Even after all my new cast-ons this month, I still managed to bring the WIP count down! It’s only by one, but hey, that’s down! I did have one finish from the pre-2021 list, and funny enough, I didn’t even start it. A friend of mine has a grandmother who was […]

WIP Challenge: February Update

I’m feeling a lot better about this challenge now. The shoot is done, and I’m looking forward to telling you all about that later. I’m finishing up gifts for (very understanding) family and friends that got pushed back because of the shoot, and I’ve made progress on some really old WIPs, like the Easter Shawl. […]

The “Easter” Shawl

This one is a winder, so settle in. Travel back with me about decade, when I was but a wee teenager. We went to visit my aunt in Austin, Texas, and these trips mostly included eating fantastic food and shopping. One such shop we were able to fit in was Gauge, one of my first […]

WIP Challenge: January Update

Not off to a great start with the WIP challenge… But I knew this was going to happen. I have the bucket-list shoot coming up this month, and almost all of my craft time has been dedicated to those projects. The plus side to that is almost all of those projects are Queue projects, which […]

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 […]

WIP it into Shape

When I first started crocheting over a decade ago, one of my favorite things about it was the absence of a “block.” Unlike writing or drawing, I never ran out of ideas for things I wanted to make. What a simpler time. I’m sad to report that I am in a yarncraft “block,” which is […]
