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 […]

Come Out to Socialize

It’s been a rough couple of weeks, friends. We’re still in the middle of a Pandemie. The school year is starting, so work is picking up. I’m also working at the Ren Fest, which is a joy, but something else I have to make sure I’m able to do. On top of all of this, […]

Plying Bracelet

Time again to share one of my all-time favorite spinning tips. I had a beginner spinner come to the booth this weekend, and they were looking at fiber to go with a single they had spun.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

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 […]

Canine Adventures

Y’all. I cannot believe it. I have been “knitting” for more than two decades and crocheting almost as long. I thought I had experienced just about every yarn-related hardship, but I was wrong! To quote Master Yoda, there is another. My family took our annual trip to the lake with some family friends. One such […]

Three Years of Adventures

I’ve made it! The leather (or crystal?) anniversary! I appreciate you all who continue reading my words, whether you’ve been here since day one or if you just found the blog. It’s definitely gotten me out of my comfort zone and pushed my crafty skills to new heights. Sadly, I do find myself in a […]
