Tour de Fleece 2012

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

This I’d really the first spinning I’ve done this year, so I’m pretty excited to get back in the saddle. My TdF teams: Stashbusters, Wicked Stitch, SCF/HY, and My Favorite Sheep. Because I like checking things off lits, my many TdF 2012 goals: Spin only from stash,whenever possible. Spin 5# of fiber. Spin some Yarn […]

I got a wild hair this week and went on a carding bender. Since I’ve been meaning to set up a separate shop for Art Club (aside from etsy), I figured may as well do it now, with all these pretty new cuckoobatts, huzzah! Most of them are big fat jumbo batts, 3 – 4 […]

Today I shot Splash, my upcoming Craftzine pattern, with the lovely Charlene, who has a figure that welcomes the camera instead of mortifying it (uh, me). The weather was gorgeous, windy, mild hot (nice hot, not the punishing 100-by-noon bullshit we’ve had the last couple weeks), and the setting was a pretty town lake in […]

TDF 2011

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Well, I feel pretty good about my Tour de Fleece. My last minute spin, which ticks both my Team Wicked Stitch checkbox and my Team Browncoats checkbox–though the last one by accident. It turned out being pretty much the colorway of the Serenity movie poster, through no effort on my part. The fiber was some […]

I finished my 2nd TDF pound this evening. Here it is, unwashed, 800-something yds of 2ply. I need to see it in daylight to form an opinion, but offhand, I think it’s less than the sum of its parts. I probably should have chain-plied. Oh, well. singles: fiber:

Busy Bee!

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

What a week! After a week of my awesome new craft-reward-enhanced To-Do listing, I have been awfully productive! Not only have I gotten a lot done, but I’ve made time for myself to do my personal crafty stuff. I’ve decided that any crafty rewards I earn each week expire on Sunday, so that kind of […]

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 Convertible Hoodie Pattern on Craftzine!

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011

Lazy Weekend Convertible Hoodie Sweater I was so busy with the Insubordiknit workshop last weekend (very fun, by the way!) that I wasn’t able to post Lazy Weekend (ravelry), my new convertible hoodie sweater pattern that went up on Craftzine last Friday. It’s an oversized short-sleeved sweater for 3-seasons layering with an oversided removable hood […]
