Signs of Craft (+ A Sale!)

Lately I’ve been getting back into sewing and embroidery. I still get hung up on crochet, thinking I need to write a pattern if I want to start something, since I did that for so long, so I’m keeping my projects simple for now.

Last weekend I made a rope/clothesline basket for our bathroom. You can [...]

Sweet Azalea Blanket

I used to joke to myself that if I ever went back to work full-time, I’d still have designs published for many months after the fact because of the nature of the time it takes for different things to be published. Sweet Azalea was actually one of the last I crocheted (although I’m grasping at [...]

New Beginnings

In my last post, I was talking about Spring and new beginnings, and it turns out that I have some big news to share with you. We are about to experience a big huge new beginning of our own.

For the past few weeks I’ve been talking to the fine folks at Craftsy (you might remember [...]

Handmade Holiday 2011

Since it’s February already–mid-Feb, at that, you might think the title of this post was referring to Valentine’s Day, but you’d be wrong. I still haven’t shared my gifts from the winterholidays last year, but so it is. I had a bit of time and a flash of inspiration that led to me making a [...]

Hats, Hats and More Hats

Ever since I figured out how to make a hat (in the beginning,  I kept churning out Lion Brand Homespun Pancakes and could not figure out what I was doing wrong) they’ve been one of my favorite things to design and crochet. First off, many times, there’s no foundation chain. They take a minimum of [...]

Ode to Yarnivore

Even though they are always super busy, I love Sundays at Yarnivore.  We have quite a few knitters and crocheters who drop in to work on their projects, and it’s always a lot of fun.

You can see in the photo above that Tammy did a speed test on the Soft [...]

Block Everything

One of the questions I get asked a lot is “But, do you really block your pieces?” Yes, I really do. “But is it really necessary?” I believe so, if you want  your pieces to shine and look professional.  “But do you block acrylic?” Yes, I even block acrylic. “Even if it is for a [...]

New Pattern: Starry Night Cardigan

Today I’m proud to release another adult garment design, the Starry Night Cardigan, named of course for Vincent Van Gogh’s famous painting.  I designed it in response to all of the ladies who have told me that they would love to make an adult version of the Ribbed Cardigan from Little Crochet.

Granted, I changed some [...]

My Zipline Shell

I finally finished my Zipline Shell (ravelry details here) this weekend. I completed the majority of it in the car on the way to and from North Dakota, because it’s that easy to crochet. I knew I might want to modify it around the shoulders and neckline, so I waited to do those areas at [...]

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

I finally got some pictures uploaded and sorted from our trip to North Dakota.
That bear almost caught me!
Other than the selling off of things, we mostly relaxed and went to the playground (with Tegue) a lot.

I affectionately refer to this slide as My Nemesis. Twenty five years ago, I fell off the top off it [...]
