Better late than never?

TLDR: This post is in regards to the ongoing conversation on racism and non-inclusion happening in the fiber community. I will be moderating comments, because this is my blog, it's my views (which I'm entitled to, even if they are different from yours), and comments that are unconstructive to the conversation, hateful, or along the...

Determination – Post Holiday reset, 2019 planning

Like the rest of the world, I'm currently evaluating some things in my life and making goals and plans for the coming year. I hate to call them resolutions, because than I feel like a complete FAILURE if I slip up a little bit. I refuse to say that "I will lose weight!" or "I'll... Continue Reading →

My Precious

I think all knitters have a skein or two, or twelve, that for whatever reason is special. Really special. Too special to use right now, because it needs the perfect pattern, or because you're not a "good enough" knitter yet. Or ma\nybe it has special memories attached to it: you bought it during your first... Continue Reading →

Well That Sucked.

Ever have things all planned out, and then life throws a wrench at you and everything unravels? Yeah.

Skeindeer Knits podcast's Eli is a big enabler in that department, and Kristin from Voolenvine has been doing it too. (All the love to Skeindeer and Voolenvine 🖤, if you don't watch them on YouTube, you should) So let's... Continue Reading →

Gift Knitting vs. Cast on all the things!!!

Happy Saturday morning to you. Figured I'd try to get a post up while I have my coffee this morning, before I need to go get stuff done. I don't know about you guys, but November creeped up SUPER fast this year. It probably doesn't help that weekend has been pretty busy with stuff; mostly... Continue Reading →

Back to the Grind

Well it had to happen, I guess. My mini staycation after Rhinebeck has come to an end, and I am headed back to the office today. It was nice while it lasted. Between getting my hair cut, doing laundry, and cuddling the cats I have successfully photographed and stored my Rhinebeck haul (after giving it... Continue Reading →

Rhinebeck Recap from a First Time Attendee

This past weekend I attended the NY Sheep and Wool Festival, aka Rhinebeck for the first time ever! I have been hearing about Rhinebeck for past few years, from various people in past and current knitting groups, and from podcasters that I follow. Previously it had not really been an option for me, what with... Continue Reading →
