MKAL fun.

Character sheet and statistics, oh my!

I gonna talk more crafts today.  Because crafts! Actually, my love of crafting has collided with my love of being a nerd, and thanks to Polycraftual, I got my hands on a really interesting knitting pattern and project. It’s called the Yarn Quest 2017, Heroes of Yarnia. It’s […]

Crafting good times

Square 1- Fantastic!

I’ve been knitting and crocheting a lot again. After taking some time off from squares, I started the 2017 Moogly CAL, despite not finishing the 2015 one. I only have a few square left of that one, and I thought maybe I’d just do a few squares I really liked towards […]

Stitches and more stitches

Labyrinth Sweater

am not working on anything nerdy lately.  It’s sort of sad, though the things I am working on are pretty neat.  I’m still working on the labyrinth sweater.  I wouldn’t call it slow going, so much as I frogged the thing 3 times (including twice at about 8″ in…) and then when I finally […]

Polycraftual Invasion

I’ve been considering how to change the look and feel of my blog, and I seem to be floating in a dead space of “I have no clue what to do.”  And that’s not really productive, so back to posts, and hopefully eventually, I’ll figure how how I want the space to look.

I’m recovering […]

In which FCM is silly this morning.

I’ve been quiet, as we’ve not really had much going on. It’s sort of that long stretch between Halloween and Christmas.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, but there’s not really much to do, unless you like lists and grocery shopping.  Alight, I do like those things but they are boring for blog posts, […]

On the hook…and needles!

I’ve always got a million projects going at once.  One day I will stick to the rule that I have to complete all my current projects before starting a new one.  One day…So my ACTIVE projects at the moment include a custom glove and ear warmer set for a customer, a cute coffee cozy to […]

Hook happenings.

Tamara’s Kismet- my first square

Starburst Square- really loved this one

I haven’t worked much on the CAL for this week.  Well, technically, I have.  It’s a square made up of four mini squares, sewn together, and I completed two of them.  But, they are too large, and I am not happy with […]

Yarning

With the snow a foot or more deep, and the temperatures below 0ºF (and I won’t even discuss wind chills), we are all rather stuck inside.  I love seasons, I don’t mind snow and I even don’t mind the cold.  But this winter can’t end soon enough.  I’m ready for sun and the great outdoors.

[…]

I can haz…Square

My first square of the Moogly CAL is done.  Woot!  Well, mostly.  I still need to weave in all those ends, and block it, but I’m waiting for my blocking supplies to arrive.  In the meantime, I can gain a few rows on the One Ring Scarf, and the shawl.

Ugh, so uneven. Still, I love […]

It’s a crafty crafty crafty year!

It’s been really fun having my best friend Harriet here to visit. She still has another week before she flies back to Manchester, and I’m already dreading it!

My Crochet along progress

We’ve hung out and crafted a lot. We’ve planned and I’ve ended up putting together a list of knit and crochet projects […]
