Knit (and Crochet) Local

I’ve got to forewarn you that this month is going to be a parade of projects. Book projects, mag projects, lots of projects that I worked on quite some time ago are finally published. And my slightly-lazy-when-it-comes-to-blogging self has been remiss in posting. Mostly because I actually took a few days off like the rest [...]

Gobble Gobble

Today we went to two Thanksgivings, one in Austin and one here in San Antonio. We’re thankful for our families, our health, and our new little pup, among other things. I’m also thankful for Thanksgiving- making the above pies reminded me of how much I like to cook!
I’m also thankful for you, crochet fans! Now [...]

Another Crocheted Wreath

I spent last week playing with ideas for holiday wreaths. Initially I jumped for the green because it seemed logical, but once I went stash diving I really wasn’t happy with any color combinations that worked with it. In checking out out the dollar section at Michael’s, I came across some pretty glass bird ornaments [...]

On the Nails, On the Needles

One of the knitting blogs I read does an occasional post about the yarn they are knitting and the nail polish they are wearing. I can’t remember which blog, and I’ve spent a good twenty minutes searching, so I’m just going to have to post without a link. If it’s you, tell me in the [...]

Craftsy Roundup

Now that I’ve been teaching my Craftsy classes for a little over six months, I wanted to do a roundup to show you what some of my students have made, and post some of the feedback. I know it can be a little scary to sign up for a class without really knowing what you [...]

Holiday Decorating

Okay, I know it’s early. But I saw this cute tutorial over at Good Knits and I couldn’t help myself.

This wreath took about an hour to make. It’s not hard to do (it’s pretty much the same technique as  my Embellished Flip Flops), just tedious. I changed the edging to shells for mine, and I [...]

Interweave Crochet Accessories 2011

Last Friday I checked the mailbox and found the newest issue of Interweave Crochet Accessories- yay! It is packed with over fifty projects–a lot of shawls, hats, and scarves, plus some home decor–just perfect for planning your holiday gifts.  I have two patterns in it, as well.

First up is the Jeanne Lois Bandit, a triangular [...]

Glamorous Saturday Nights

After a long day at the yarn shop, this is about what it looks like at our house.

Yep, still yarn dreaming even after working with it all day. I’m hooking a secret project with Malabrigo Arroyo that will be available sometime next year… Freddie decided to cuddle up to the yarn instead of fighting it [...]

And the Winner is…

Thanks for all of your comments on my giveaway for Robyn Chachula’s new book, Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia. Without further ado, the winner is Dctangles (I’ll send  you an email), who said:
“I own three stitch dictionaries, including one from the early part of the 1900’s from Fleisher. I think it is about time [...]
