Hooray for February!

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

I’m really psyched it’s February. I’ve designated this as my official catch-up month. Now, that doesn’t mean it’s all snowmen and cupcakes–my catching up involves some VERY heavy lifting–but it does mean I don’t have any event-type commitments breaking up my mindspace. Did I just say mindspace? What the hell kind of talk is that? […]

FREE PATTERN: Heartfelt Gaiter/Heartless Gaiter

Friday, February 12th, 2010

If you’re looking for a last-minute Valentine to knit, try my new pattern on Craft! It’s a super bulky cabled gaiter that knits up in about 2 1/2 hours if you’re a confident cable knitter. The heart is nice and subtle, or you can knit the heartless version. The gray one used just one skein […]

A good week for mail!

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

My mailbox was my bestest friend this week! First, a present from Laura D: lovely autumnal hand-dyed masham (predrafted here; I can’t resist drafting slippery masham) and a sweet vintage apron! From Felicia, a pound of moorit merino roving (swap): Swap with Melissa of Moustache Rides Yarn: There was also a tiny bag of felt […]

Election season = fury = craft blinders, please!

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Dude, I fucking hate election season. I end up enraged every time I listen to the news. The only bright spot is The Daily Show, but it’s reruns this week, so I’m stuck with NPR. Ugh. And I can’t not listen. I whirl into a frenzy of outrage and fact checking and frustration about the […]

Topsy-Turvy

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Last week, I decided to search out all my neglected fiber and get it all made into combed tops at Zeilinger. It’s kinda hard to let go of a lot of it. There’s a lot of special colors and fibers I’m going to have to blend together, because their tops minimums are kinda high. It’s […]

Fiber Destash + Mermaid Sweater

Saturday, January 19th, 2008

(Whew! I had a little WordPress meltdown, but it looks like we’re all sorted now, hurrah!) I’ve realized my fiber stash is just too crazy to tally. I don’t know what I was thinking. It’s not in discrete, compact, easily weighed and tallied parcels like yarn. There are a million sundry bags, balls, batts, containers, […]

2008 Destash. Gulp.

Monday, January 14th, 2008

Starting yarn weight, as of 1/1/2008 (I included UFO started this year): 102 kilos of yarn. I think I’ve counted every last little bit, including the many massive cones I bought at Webs’ cone sale last year, and handspun on the bobbins. The only place I didn’t venture was my really packed bedroom closet, which […]

Stashalong update/destash

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Well, crap. Another month has ended without my sewing the buttons on several big WIP, so my final 3-month stashalong total has fallen short of my 4500g goal with just 3976g eliminated, even though I have at least another couple pounds off the needles. But they don’t count as FOs until they’re completely ready to […]
