ThanksKnitting 2022

But I guess it’s ThanksCarding this year! Taking advantage of the lovely weather in Kansas City this morning to card a bit more cotton before it’s cold again. It keeps me well out of the way of the chefs! Since I have to keep most of what I’m working on for the next six or […]

Advent Knitting 2022

I am hoping to have one holiday knit that’s for me and therefore doesn’t have to be kept a surprise! Yarny Advent calendars have become even more the rage since I first discovered them, but really, of course they have. The only downside to using up to 25 beautiful, curated colors in your project is […]

Ply Away 2022

Yep, being able to do the same events I did prepandemic is still magical. The local spinning show Ply Away was one that I noticeably missed, since it was supposed to happen in April of 2020, at the height of our lockdown. However, for all I missed it that year, this time it was barely […]

Natural Dyeing: Easter Egg Edition

I’ve said before Easter’s not a big holiday in my family. We get together, we share a meal, but that pretty much exhausts the list of traditions for my adult family. However, one day I was scrolling through Facebook and someone posted a basic recipe for natural Easter egg dyes. Of course, my first thought […]

Mobile Yarn

Yes, I have been on a grand tour of the American Southeast this month. It wasn’t anything intentional. I would do just about anything to get out of the cold and my SAD funk… This opportunity came in the form of Rachel, my old college roommate. She’s amazing and smart, and she manages big-deal construction […]

Stash Tampa

I will never forget my first trip into a local yarn shop. The sheer awe of the yarn and the samples while getting to talk with truly like-minded people. Over the years, that glitter has worn away, and I thought I would probably never feel that way walking into another yarn shop. However, I did […]

A Decade of Yarn: 2021

I’m so, so glad that I have reached this milestone. When I started my Decade in Yarn project, I was so good about making my swatches for each project as I went. Yes, I was home and had nothing better to do, but still. I’ve said a few times that I lost a lot of […]

Hello, 2022!

Took a bit longer of a break than expected, but I think it will be well worth it! Got some great ideas and goals for this new year. But first, let’s start with the old. I won’t prattle on again about how the year made me feel, but I am going to cover what I […]

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 […]
