2012 Year in Review: (Non-crafty) Books!
10 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 31, 2012 | Short Link

One of my goals for 2012 was to read more.  Last year around this time, I was feeling like some sort of statistic – you know, featured in all those doomsday articles you see online about how people don’t read anymore.  Then my colleagues gifted me a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I hoped it would […]

Year of Projects, Year 2: Return

It’s been a while since I shared a Year of Projects post, but as the year comes to an end, I’ve been reflecting on my crafty accomplishments in 2012 and planning for 2013.  I’ve definitely missed the camaraderie of participating in YOP so I thought I would ease myself back into posting on a semi-regular, if […]

2012 Year in Review: Surmount the Stash
4 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 30, 2012 | Short Link

It’s been just over a year since I first learned about Revelations of a Delusional Knitter and her Surmount the Stash challenge. This has been an interesting year for me in terms of stash.  I started using Ravelry’s features more actively, which helped me track my stash more closely.  I also started working with Galler Yarns, […]

Giveaway: Artyarns Shawl for All Seasons Kit
79 Comments

Confession time: Before I started working on surmounting my stash, I pretty much entered every yarn giveaway I came along.  It was by winning one such giveaway from Jimmy Beans Wool that the Artyarns Shawl for All Seasons Kit became part of my collection. This is actually a pretty cool kit in the Purple Velvet colorway.  Apparently, […]

2012 Year in Review: Frog Fest!
4 Comments

Posted by Underground Crafter on December 29, 2012 | Short Link

I’m not the type of crocheter (or knitter) who feels the need to complete every project I start.  Sometimes I start a project for stress relief, other times I make a bad yarn choice, and then there are times when the project just isn’t really something I want to work on anymore. Today, I’m celebrating […]

Back in January, I joined the Ravelry group 12 for Myself (now called For Myself!) with the hopes of making some crochet projects for me!  I’m that type of crocheter who always makse things for others and rarely for myself.  You know, the one who never has her own scarf finished in time for the […]
