Largess for the Baron & Baroness

On the list of things that should have been done by the end of 2019, these socks are numbers two and three on the list. (Where is number one, you ask? Um...Check back next week.) When we moved to Seattle, we didn't know anyone, except a handful of online friends. We got lucky, though, in… Continue reading Largess for the Baron & Baroness

Video Games for Knitters

I'll admit, I'm a casual gamer at best, but I have seen several video games across platforms in the past few years that reference knitting or crafting. I haven't played most of these yet, but I'll be getting my first console in a few weeks and these are definitely on my list. Animal Crossing Pocket… Continue reading Video Games for Knitters

I'm late, but I'm back! It's been a while since I've had a crafty Friday post for you. I promise that I did do crafty things in the month of November, though! I have proof! My first project isn't terribly exciting. It's actually the last thing I made. A friend over on Ravelry has been… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Antique Market Haul

I am so tired, you guys. Yesterday I went to the Scott Antique Market downtown with Missouri and my mom. For those not from the Columbus area, this is a massive antique market we have at the fairgrounds that runs selected weekends from November-March. Yesterday wrapped up their 2014-15 season. Since it was the very… Continue reading Antique Market Haul

Finished Object Friday

What have I finished in the past month? Well, the Owl Cowl is finally complete, and has been worn several times by the recipient. The yarn is Berroco Weekend DK, which is mostly cotton. Word of advice: cables+cotton=murder on your hands. That right there is the main reason it took me two and a half… Continue reading Finished Object Friday

Finished Objects

Hey look! I have a finished object! Sorry about the not-so-great webcam picture. One of these days I need to get my own personal photographer. Or maybe I'll just invest in a dress form that's the right size, and just take the pictures myself. And maybe a photography class. Or a better camera. 3 years,… Continue reading Finished Objects

Finished Object Friday

Well, will you look at that! I finished a few things! I refer to this shawl as The Sea Monster. I was supposed to be an illusion project, but then it got completely out of hand. I liked the colors so well on their own that I decided to leave off the secret message I… Continue reading Finished Object Friday
