You may remember that a few weeks ago I had a comprehensive eye exam and my pupils were dilated.  I could hardly see, but I was in a crocheting mood.  I had just finished a secret project in Galler Yarns Inca Eco (which will soon be available as a free pattern on their blog), so […]

I had a very productive crocheting and knitting weekend. First, I picked up my sister’s blanket for the first time in weeks.  I finished all of the borders and the edging.  All told, the blanket has 375 granny squares (3 rounds each), four rounds of gold granny borders, one round of black granny borders, and […]

To celebrate my blogiversary, […]

Do you ever stumble across a blogger or designer and wonder how it is that you haven’t seen her work until that moment?  This is exactly how I felt when I first saw Deborah Atkinson’s Snowcatcher blog.  I literally couldn’t understand how so much time had elapsed without me being exposed to her amazing snowflake […]

I’m sad to say that I didn’t make much progress on the WIPs I shared last week.  (Ok, sad is probably an overstatement.) I did finish my top secret project in Inca Eco yarn, which will eventually transform into a free crochet pattern on the Galler Yarns blog.  I still need to type up the […]
