Welcome back, readers, and thank you for all your well wishes on the last post. I hope you are all healthy and surviving this massive disruption. Staying at home was what I expected to be doing with my March so the Stashdown has proceeded without unexpected issues. The issue I should have expected is my … Continue reading Stashdown Quarter 1: Easily Distracted
Welcome back, everyone! Thanks for taking the time to catch up with my New Year's post. Ready to look at my plans for the year ahead? Me too!* If you're on Instagram, you've probably seen the Make Nine challenge, where sewists and other makers pick out nine projects they'd like to complete in the year … Continue reading Why Stop at Nine?
Here we are, everyone. We made it into a new decade. Did you all get through 2019 ok? Last year was a hard one for me. I said that about the year before last, but somehow last year got harder. Good things came, but not without a fight. I am so grateful to all the … Continue reading Looking Back, Looking Ahead
Good news everyone! WordPress support helped me find my missing post. Somehow a draft version had overwritten the final version, which was thankfully still sitting in history. I feel rather silly I hadn't thought to check in history, but user error is one of the easiest tech problems to fix, so I was like a … Continue reading Getting my Knit Together
Happy fall everybody! Peanut and I (and Querido and the fuzzies) are doing well. The temperature has dropped to a positively frigid 70º in the morning, and Querido and I are turning poor Peanut into a thin-blooded Phoenician by bundling him up for his walk every morning. He's built up quite a layer of his … Continue reading State of the Stash: Third Quarter
Welcome back, everyone! January was a perfect example of how lots of making often translates into very little blogging. One of these projects is top secret, but thankfully another is ready to show off. Inspired by the very talented makers at my local craft guild, I have cracked my spinning wheel back out and made … Continue reading This Might Backfire
Thank you all for your kind words on my last post, everyone. After I hit publish on that one, I put a dent in a box of tissues, and can now put my sadness away for a while. If you're looking for a happier post, or just want to ogle another knitter's stash, I think … Continue reading 2016 By The Numbers
Hello dear readers! After getting myself into a grump thinking about Thanksgiving, I did my best to return to a better mood with lots of knitting. That helped a lot, and discovering that 10 Things I Hate About You is now on Netflix erased all the rest of my grumpiness. Today, I bound off my … Continue reading Yarn Hop
Here we are, knitters, in the middle of the year. This holiday weekend is billed as the epitome of vivacity by cooking and lifestyle magazines, but here in Kansas it has been uniformly dour. Some rain, but mostly just solid, dull clouds and a cool wind. Malthus and I are on the couch, listening to … Continue reading In the Middle
Greetings, dear readers, from the land of the barely awake. Few words this morning, but I have pretty things to show you. Lovely KnitCircus gradient yarn that came in the bag of funder goodies from the Great Northern Knits Kickstarter. A Talamu shawl, with the end in sight.
