This is my version of the Cozy Crawlers Leg Warmers from Linda Permann‘s Little Crochet: Modern Designs for Babies and Toddlers.  (The pattern is also available as a free download here.)  I used about […]

Non-yarn haul: Knitty City

Although I’ve been participating in Surmount the Stash all year and have been fairly good about avoiding new yarn purchases, the siren song of my favorite local yarn shop, Knitty City, began calling to me last night. The start of my yarn craving was receiving an email update about another local yarn shop that is closing […]

Yesterday, I had a burst of creative energy and the time to crochet.  I designed a Bruges lace scarf pattern and made the sample. I don’t usually finish one of my Year of Projects goals on the same day that I start it, so I’m as amazed as you are.  This will ultimately be a […]

If you’ve visited my blog in the last few days, you probably noticed that it wasn’t available.  It turns out that I exceeded the storage space on my web hosting plan – not with my blog, but by keeping too many backups of my blog.  D’oh!  Now that I’ve learned my lesson and cleared out […]

Thursday craft goals update: 2011 recap

I love welcoming the New Year.  It isn’t a religious holiday, so I don’t have to worry about offending (or excluding) someone when I say “Happy New Year!” It’s also a great time to reflect on the past and think about the future! About a month after I started my blog in March, I set […]

Since my last installment of my weekly craft goals update (dramatic drum roll, please): My destashing has continued, and I’ve sold some yarn from my Stash Sale on Etsy (personal craft goal #12).  (Let’s just ignore the yarn I bought at the Finger Lakes Fiber Arts Festival, shall we?) I have officially given up on finishing Producing […]
