You may have noticed I haven’t posted a Year of Projects update for the last two weeks.  I have been following along with my favorite YOP bloggers, but I think I’m taking a break from the Year of Projects for a while. I say “I think” because this has been something I’ve debated about for […]

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 […]

After I posted about the awesome class I took with Jenny King at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, Evelyn from Project: Stash asked me what I thought of the Studio, since she hadn’t been there yet.  I decided that today’s post would feature my favorite NYC yarn shops.  I often see threads on Ravelry about […]

Since getting an amazing deal on Modular Crochet: A Revolutionary New Method for Creating Custom-Design Pullovers, I have started amassing vintage crochet books at a rapid pace.  My favorite sources are PaperBackSwap.com (free books!),  Amazon.com, and Etsy. I was inspired to share my recent finds with you by this post by Andi at Untangling Knots. […]

I’m currently hosting a swap through Ravelry’s Blog Hub group.  The purpose of the swap is to share yarn from within our stash with another blogger and attempt to stretch our own creative boundaries by imagining (and hopefully creating) projects using the mysterious yarn swaps we receive. You can read about the yarns we’ve received […]

… at least according to John Gay. Well, I guess it is also true if you are participating in my yarn swap project adventure via Ravelry’s Blog Hub group.  Each of us mailed a skein of yarn from our own collection to another blogger.  The initial posts from the recipients are here.  The stories about […]
