You can tell I'm getting far along on this scarf because it is getting harder and harder to photograph the whole thing at once. It is long enough to feel like a real scarf now, although it still won't leave enough of a tail when I wrap it around my neck. I have an extremely... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees (27)
Okay, my brief sock crisis has passed and I'm back to the scarf. For now. I prefer working on this project. The yarn is so much nicer and the lace is more fun. I just dislike how fiddly the nupps are, and the fact that I need to carry around a crochet hook in addition... Continue Reading →
Diagon Ally Socks started
Is something wrong with me? Or do all crafters go through this? I'm over halfway done my scarf so of course I had to cast on something new. I kept telling myself it was because I'm traveling this weekend and I wanted a less complicated project to take with me. In reality it is because... Continue Reading →
Bat Dishcloth finished!
I knew it would be quick! It is a really cute pattern. You can find it here at Yarnspirations. It only really took one good evening to finish it off. It's fast and fun!
Bat Dishcloth started!
I liked my cat dishcloth so much I decided to make a spooky bat to go with it. Well, right now it is just a bat butt. Crochet goes so much faster than knitting for me, so I expect this one to be done in no time!

Progress! It seems like at best I can get one pattern repeat done in an evening. That means I still have quite a few nights left to go before this is finished. Good thing it is beautiful and the pattern is still interesting enough to keep me engaged.

Taking a break for a few days to make my black cat dishcloth was exactly what I needed. I came back to this project refreshed. I really do enjoy the lace quite a bit. I think I might try to incorporate lace in whatever my next big project is too. Speaking of next projects, I've... Continue Reading →
Spooky Dishcloth done!
It's finished! It's still a bit hard to see unless the light is good but I am very happy with it anyway. It is fun for Halloween but it also reminds me of my own little black cat!
Spooky Dishcloth (3)
Hopefully now you can see the pattern enough to see that it's a black cat! I got a huge amount done over the holiday weekend and now there's only a few rows left to finish it off. I wish it wasn't quite so hard to see but I still really like it.
Spooky Dishcloth (2)
I had to mess around with the flash and different angles but at least now you can tell there's some sort of pattern happening. It always feels so good to work on something quick and easy when you've been in the middle of a bigger project for a while. I expect to be refreshed and... Continue Reading →
It's the spooky season and I decided I needed to make something that was quick and fun to celebrate. Sadly black yarn doesn't photograph so well. Hopefully I can figure out a way to show this project off somehow. It's going to be cute!
Among the Trees progress (24)
Tonight I finished up the 20th pattern repeat and put in another lifeline. It's a bit harder to see than the last one since I used gray yarn. I probably should be adding them a little more often since it gives me so much peace of mind. I feel relatively confident I could fix a... Continue Reading →
