No such thing as “too many WIPs”

There had been some discussion/mentioning on a few podcasts about calling on all the things recently. 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 đź–¤, if you don’t watch them on YouTube, you should) So let’s…… Continue reading No such thing as “too many WIPs”

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

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.

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…

Year of the Frog

I am writing this during breaks between undertaking a very unsavory task. One that sometimes can be satisfying, depending on the circumstances. Circumstances such as the top-down knee high socks that I attempted back in 2014, which made it as far as two attempts at the cuff before I tossed it into hibernation. I finally…… Continue reading Year of the Frog
