It’s been a few days longer than usuals between blog posts, it’s been kinda crazy busy for me the past week! What with post engaged wedding planning beginning, prepping stuff for Rhinebeck, and not feel well. I did not manage to finish my Nor’easter cardigan. The yarn was indeed a liar liar pants on fire.…… Continue reading OMG RHINEBECK YOU GUYS

New and Continuing Adventures!

The past week has been VERY exciting! Sunday was Dez and my 6 year anniversary dating. We went for dinner at a very nice restaurant that makes their Alfredo sauce gluten free, (as a proper Alfredo should be anyway) and after dinner we had ice cream and watched some TV. He topped the night off…… Continue reading New and Continuing Adventures!

Crafting & Pain

Usually on Sundays I try to do some crafting while I watch creative streams on Twitch or catch up on podcasts, but it felt like such a struggle to even pick up my knitting. I just stared at it for about a while. It took forever to get through 2 rows of very simple lace…… Continue reading Crafting & Pain

Close to home

Today is the first day of October. The beginning of the Halloween season that we all love 🖤🎃. It’s also Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Forgotten Coffee

Hey hey, crafty people! Hope your morning started better than mine. I left for work and forgot my coffee. I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of brewing my own, because it tastes better than the kcups at work and I don’t have time or money for Wawa coffee or Starbucks every morning.…… Continue reading Forgotten Coffee


There has been much progress over the weekend. On Saturday, I got in some great car knitting as Dez drove us to a Japanese supermarket shopping center, Mitsuwa, that we enjoy. It’s a long drive. I powered through a good chunk of the color 3 section on my 3 Color Shawl, before stuffing my face…… Continue reading Progress!

Anyone seen my crochet mojo?

I’ve been mostly knitting lately (well, only knitting lately), on two projects: a 3 Color Cashmere shawl (mine isn’t cashmere), and a Nor’easter cardigan. I’ve also cast on a pair of Indigo Leaves socks, because I need to do ALL the podcast KALs apparently. All of this knitting has been monopolizing my craft time, leaving…… Continue reading Anyone seen my crochet mojo?

Baking is crafty, so here we go! I was in the mood for baking something this weekend, and there were bananas going ripe too quickly on my counter, so banana seemed obvious. I found a simple version of gluten free banana bread on I found this via a google search, along with a paleo…… Continue reading Recipe Review: Mama Knows Gluten Free Banana Bread

Yarn, Mead and Drunken Bees

Yesterday was a fun-filled adventure at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire! Dez and I go every year, and I have been going somewhat regularly ever since my Oma took my brother and I to the Ren Faire when we were little. Yes, there is dress-up involved, I am that kind of geek. It was Pirate weekend,…… Continue reading Yarn, Mead and Drunken Bees

When you wish you had kept it…

Have you ever wished that you had kept something that you had made and gifted away? Not because the recipient was ungrateful or lost the hat that you made them. Twice. But because that thing you made and gifted away was AWESOME, and you wanted it for yourself. When I was in college I made…… Continue reading When you wish you had kept it…
