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 [...]

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 [...]

FO+ Free Knitting Pattern: Fiesta Scribble Shawl

I finally finished the car project that I started on the way to North Dakota– since then it’s been down through Kansas City, MO, back to TX and to Oklahoma and back. It is my second takes on a quickie pattern I wrote for Yarnivore, which I call the Fiesta Scribble Shawl. And I should [...]

How to Be A Crochet Ambassador

For the past two weeks, I’ve been filling in for other employees at Yarnivore. It has been totally exhausting, and I had to cast my design work to the side for a while (don’t worry, I’ll still make the deadlines!).  But I wanted to share a little bit more about why I work there and [...]

Random Link Love

Well folks, I’ve got nothing. I’ve been hammering away at some worky things and have been feeling incredibly inspired with ideas lately (as is always the case when I don’t have time to work on them–but I’m writing them down!).  But, here is a cute pic of my nephew Tegue a few weeks ago on [...]

Fiber Day!

Today was a lovely day of fibery fun, organized by The Yarn Shop. Watching the weather channel last night (rain, rain, rain) I was worried that it wouldn’t happen, but luckily we only got a few sprinkles.
The day started out with demos on wool washing, dyeing, and carding. I personally will probably never (well, never [...]


You may be wondering where my creative energies have run off to lately, and  I’m pleased to finally announce part of the answer. Craft Stylish, a new website launched by the lovely people at Taunton Press. I’ve been posting over there, all about crochet, my other crafty love. Sometimes I wonder if anyone who reads this blog knows that I [...]

Richard Notkin Studio Visit

This afternoon I was, yet again, lucky enough to tag along with the art grads to another artist’s studio. This was actually a joint visit, as Richard Notkin and Phoebe Toland are married and share studio space in Helena, Montana; we got to meet them both. I’ve been excited to (hopefully) meet Richard ever since I [...]


Alexa has left and I’m getting back into the swing of work. I had one very involved crochet project that I wanted to finish by this week, and I’m happy to say that the seams are sewn, pattern written, etc. Not without a lot of complaining on my part, but it turned out beautifully so [...]

Gary Bates’ Studio Visit

Okay, here’s one more post for the week, before too many things escape from my memory. I’ll be back after Turkey day to show you my holiday cards and maybe even some craft fair setup. Enjoy your holiday!
Last Friday I got to tag along with the grad students on a field trip to Amsterdam, Montana (!) to see [...]
