A Yarnie Treat

As you may or may not know, in addition to all of my pattern designing and book writing, I also do a lot of freelance writing for Crochet Today. One of my favorite projects (and the one I’m procrastinating on at the moment) is gathering up products for their “We Love” page. I’m constantly on [...]

Potpurri (Stuff Roundup)

When I was a kid I would watch Jeopardy all of the time and I always loved the “potpurri” category. This post is a little bit of everything so I thought the title was fitting.

First off, I hit the jackpot at this thrift/craft market right by Yarnivore. My coworker was in on her day off [...]

More on Haiti & Crochet Classes in SA

I keep meaning to post this, but haven’t yet had a chance! Through Feb. 15th, 2010, 50% of all proceeds from patterns purchased from my Ravelry and Etsy store will be donated to Doctors without Borders in Haiti. (So, if you’ve been meaning to try one of my patterns, now is the time to buy [...]

Adorable Loveliness

Check out these colorful, winter cheer inducing pillowcases by Beata of Rose Hip. Aren’t they wonderful?

Beata started making these in October right around the time she got her hands on a copy of Crochet Adorned, and apparently she has been crocheting up a storm!! I think I would be so happy to walk into my [...]

Feast For One

I am all alone this week, as Paul is down in Texas for the College Art Association. Cue “All By Myself.” We went to the grocery store before he left (did I mention that I don’t really drive…yet…I hope) and I stocked up on some stuff I’ve missed eating. I finally gave in to the completely [...]

Scrappy Trash and Snow Boots

I made a little trash bag for my sewing scraps last weekend. Not just any old trash bag, but a little one that attaches to my sewing table/cutting area with velcro, for easy access and easy dumping. I saw something like it at my sewing class, and I had to have one!
It makes it slightly [...]

Hop Hops and Sewing Bag Questions

Yesterday I recieved this beautiful pull toy in the mail from Stump Pond Toys (photo from his shop). I found his store on my daily blog cruise somehow and this was just SO cute. It’s not for my sister’s baby, or anyone else’s. It’s for me. I don’t know why, I just needed it! I love that [...]

Link Roundup

Thanks to Modish for featuring me in her Handmade Spaces column. Check it out to see pics of my craft room/studio (in a clean state).
All of my hats and earrings are on sale at Etsy- check it out! There’s still a good bit of winter left.
And check out this 2-part post on needlefelting over at ReproDepot where [...]

Recent Splurges

You may have read here that I resolved to buy a new sewing machine by the end of February. I’ve been meaning to do it but I always get scared to commit. My mom offered to pay for most of it, so it wasn’t even a money issue.  Well, today I got off my duff and went [...]

A New Hat

LuluBeans asked if I had a chance to make anything from the lovely yarn I ordered before the holidays. I started with this gorgeous stuff:
And ended up with this:
A super simple K1, P1 ribbed hat. The yarn was so pretty that  I didn’t want to do anything complicated, and I knew I’d get more mileage [...]
