Fuck being all busy and stressed out. I’m taking a break.

Friday, December 16th, 2011

I am not a disciplined person. I get a hell of a lot done (though never as much as I want), but it’s not through solid planning or because I’m a real go-getter, but through a sort of frenzied, fearful, directionless will. I spend a lot of my time in an adrenaline-fueled blur. This would […]

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 […]

Striped Destash Cardigan

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

I started this sweater while waiting on some yarn to swatch for another sweater I’ll be knitting this month. It’s worked by using 5 different yarns and alternating yarn every row. It’s super fun to knit, but managing 5  balls of yarn is a little annoying. But I’m happy to solider on because I do […]

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 […]

August Sweater, WIP, Yarn School, Batts & a shiny new egg!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

YARN: 5 balls Knit Picks Andean Silk PATTERN: Generic top-down raglan with lace panel, short sleeves, 1×1 ribbing at collar, cuffs & hem NOTES: No shaping. I wish I had shaped the waist. It’s cute enough, and the yarn has enough drape that it’s not dumpy even though it’s boxy, but it would be way […]

It’s a cinch. (What’s with the freaking puns? I’m such a hack.)

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

Today I’ve been sewing. I’m working on little recycled flannel cinch bags for some batt & spindle kits I’m making for the craft magazine store. They’re made of old flannel sheets. I decided to go with French seams because: 1) I don’t feel like wrestling with my neglected and ancient serger; 2) the pinking shears […]

Bunchy Munchie + New batts

Saturday, March 1st, 2008

So as I got ready to work the sleeves on my current sweater, I spread it out for a picture and discovered: Munchie’s bunchy. I thought maybe it would go away in the wearing, but no dice: But instead of my usual “frog now, ask questions later” tack, I decided to ask on the Zimmermania […]
