These quick cotton projects are so soothing. This is yet another circular dishcloth. I used Knit Picks Dishie for the first time, and it worked up just fine. I really like the colorway (Herb Garden) too. I have way too many of these cloths sitting around my kitchen, but I am not going to stop... Continue Reading →
One of my big goals for this year was to learn a new creative skill. I'm not sure if Tunisian crochet counts since it is so similar to crochet and knitting, but I've enjoyed learning it either way. I've had a set of Tunisian crochet hooks for ages but haven't tried them out until now.... Continue Reading →
I'm not sure I will ever be able to sort out how I feel about these socks. I packed this yarn (Knit Picks Hawthorne Rainbow Speckle and Rainbow Stripe) to take with me when I got the news that my Mom had been rushed to the hospital. I packed it knowing that things might get... Continue Reading →
I wanted to crochet something quick to get that finished object satisfaction, so I made this bath scrubby. There was no pattern, I just made it up as I went along. It's mostly half double crochet, with one more open row at the edge to make it easy to hang on a hook.

It has been a very rough few weeks and I've been grateful to have some knitting to work... Continue Reading →
I started these gloves over a week ago. They were meant to be an xmas gift for my mom. I was working on them when I got the call last week that she had been rushed to the ER with chest pains. I brought them with me when I drove up to be with my... Continue Reading →
It's done! I finished it over the weekend, just in time to count for my August goals. It did get to feel a little boring toward the end, and it is almost impossible to take a photo of, but I really like it. Part of why it was so hard to photograph is that it... Continue Reading →
August was very hot and very wet around here, not the best weather for yarncraft motivation. I still managed to complete my longest-running WIP and several other projects, so I'm quite proud. Completed in August: Stormy Day Socks - knitVampire Squid Blanket - crochetWelty Socks - knitOne Skein Wonder - knit (I'll share this one... Continue Reading →
