“No. It’s perfect.”

This was my littlest goofball’s response when I asked if I should make the sleeves longer or add some sort of hem. I had to laugh. It’s nice to be done. It cracks me up that I refuse to make anything with seams, but will gladly sit here and sew a hundred patches of yarnContinue reading ““No. It’s perfect.””

It Started with a Dishcloth

Our sponges are getting gross and I can’t seem to remember to put them on any grocery list, or that we even need them. I’m almost never happy with whatever I find anyways, so I decided to make several dishcloths with all the cotton yarn I have for such a purpose. It really is quiteContinue reading “It Started with a Dishcloth”

Ready for Imbolc

I don’t really do much for this holiday, but I do enjoy celebrating being that much closer to Spring when Winter begins to get dreary and drag. This year hasn’t been as challenging weather wise, but I think we all need this exhausting condition we find ourselves in to lead us into some growth andContinue reading “Ready for Imbolc”

Three Granny Squares: Progress is Tough

The farther along I make it with these sweaters, the less time I have to work on them. It’s one thing for the kids to see the squares as I make them. It’s another when I’m stitching them together and it’s starting to look like an actual piece of clothing. So I’ve got some lateContinue reading “Three Granny Squares: Progress is Tough”

Quick Granny Squares, hahahahaha

I’ll just make a bunch of squares for each kid and then simply sew them up and be done. They’ll be really cool, simple, and quick. Riiiiiight. Of course I can’t just make them something with a simple design. I can’t just follow someone’s pattern. Nope. I’ve got to play around with how to fitContinue reading “Quick Granny Squares, hahahahaha”

Fall Wall Decor

I finished them! I actually spent the entire day that I started working on them to finish them. I get a bit single minded when I start these kinds of projects. They are all patterns I have found for free online. The purple/red ones are from memory. I’ve made a lot of leaves over theContinue reading “Fall Wall Decor”

Granny Squares for Daughter Number Three

I decided to start working on my youngest’s granny squares. I’m having fun with these colors too and decided to make six centers of every color as I came to them. I also started balling up each color as I needed, so I could get to the next shade. I’m thinking hoodies. It really isContinue reading “Granny Squares for Daughter Number Three”

Seasonal Wall Decor

It happened again. I can’t find the crochet decorations for the main wall in our living room. A winter or two ago, I couldn’t find the Solstice/Christmas crochet snowflakes. I worked up a batch of new ones, which actually made me really happy. When I found the old ones, I just found new places toContinue reading “Seasonal Wall Decor”
