KC Yarn Crawl

I didn’t win anything, but it’s about the yarn purchases I made along the way! If you are unfamiliar with the KC Yarn Crawl, it involved four local shops all bringing out their best exclusive colorways, fibers, and designs. Of course, I had to participate in some capacity, but I was unsure at first with […]

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 […]

Project Packing: Sleepover Edition

Two of my dearest friends have Golden Birthdays™ coming up this week. We’re also all starting to turn 30 (cue the Chopin Funeral March). So, we decided we’d do this up right and take a trip to celebrate. First, we were going to go to Dollywood. The travel arrangements were pretty difficult and then we […]

Summer Vacation: Gauge Experiment

I’ve officially kicked off my Summer Vacation! My first stop is New York City and I chose the Gauge Experiment prompt. I have this lovely new hand-dyed cotton from Th’red Head Designs: Cortina. It screamed at me to be a summer top, and I’ve narrowed it down to two patterns: This is the Captiva Top, […]

Me Made May: Week Four

This last outfit was a doozey! Wanted to finish the top I had started for the Yarn Social Springtime Tee Party and a pair of shorts to go with them. The shorts were easy enough, if I could just follow the directions… The seam ripper came out more times for these shorts than any other […]

On the “Road” Again

After all the fun that was had during last year’s Yarn Social Bingo, how could I pass up on another summer yarn adventure?! This year, Yarn Social is doing a Summer Vacation. It is a little more confusing than bingo, but it’s not too bad: you pick a “trip,” and the number of miles on […]

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 […]

That’s Life

“That’s what all the people say…” I don’t have much crafty stuff to report in this post, because a lot of not-crafty stuff happened recently. I got my first dose of the vaccine! And you know that I knit during the 15 minute holding period. I’m also in the process of transitioning jobs, which is […]

A Challenge and a Party

Look at me, straying from the WIP Challenge after such a good month… Last week, I hit a new low in the CoronaCoaster (not a lowest low, but a hitherto unexperienced low), and it hit me pretty hard. I barely touched any projects. I didn’t even write a post for last Thursday, just didn’t have […]
