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 […]

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 […]

Back to my dungeon! I mean basement…

My new stove is coming on Saturday!  I’m very excited, particularly since we got a good deal (I think…)  So my kitchen is almost complete, with just the odd touch here and there to make things more simplified and organized.  Which means…

Back to the basement.

Yes, that was the sound of me screaming in […]

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 […]


This is so true.  I’d say Mei does most of this still. Though I save time by not putting dry clothes in the dryer.  It’s a time saver.  Sometimes I just don’t take clothes out of the dryer at all.  Sometimes I don’t take them out of the washer…that’s not a time saver though. […]


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.


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 […]

Nerdy knits

Cactuar Minion…still needs eyes and mouth.

I am the Queen of unfinished projects.  In my knitting back, I probably have about five unfinished projects, and my crochet bag is probably worse with tiny projects that also just never got finished. Worse, I have a ton of yarn, that I am pretty sure breeds like […]

Rainy days

Not my favorite color, but it’s turning out really nice.  Made two tiny errors early on but hey, errors make it personalized.

It’s been chilly and raining for the past 2 days, with a promise of at least another day or two of this sucktacular weather.  It’s terrible!  All my garden work is on […]
