FO Friday: Phoenix Sunset

Years ago, I was in a job I didn’t love which required me to travel to Phoenix for a conference.  After a long, dreary day under artificial, hotel conference room lighting, I stepped outside just in time to see a stunning sunset. The beautiful browns, yellows, and oranges really lifted my spirit.  The colors were […]

This is the second project I finished since I challenged myself to finish a project every two days in December. I crocheted this hat last night.  It’s for a friend of mine who bought one of my crocheted hats at a craft fair a few years ago.  We went to Smiley’s to shop for this […]

The last several months have been a whirlwind.  As a result of constant activity at work, home, and in life, books languished in my Currently Reading shelf on Goodreads, crochet and knit projects stalled in my project bags, and over 100 blogs I follow sat unread in Feedly.  But recently, things have cleared up – I […]

I’ve mentioned the My Mountain Hat Design Contest, sponsored by Schachenmayr in their My Mountain yarns, on the blog a few times before.  I finished two crochet designs in the past week, but didn’t have a chance to take pictures of both of them until last night. Boston in Teal and Sage Green. This hat […]

Last week, I mentioned I was working on some designs for the My Mountain Hat Design contest using Schachenmayr‘s My Mountain line of yarns.  For my first submission, I used this skein of Bravo Big Color in Fire Print. As many of my readers know, I’m a super slow knitter, so I knew the super bulky […]

I recently learned about a great design contest via Ravelry.  The My Mountain Hat Design contest invites designers to create a hat that symbolizes My Mountain, “a goal that feels unattainable – right up until the moment you reach it,” using the Schachenmayr line of My Mountain yarns.  I loved the fun colors of the yarns, […]

Some of my regular readers know that I love to participate in swaps.  There’s something fun about meeting a new fiber friend and who doesn’t love receiving a package in the mail? Right now, I’m participating in the International Scarf Swap‘s Wishlist Swap.  The main idea is to choose a scarf pattern from your partner’s Ravelry favorites and […]

Nativity

Growing up, I was fascinated with the Nativity scene my maternal grandmother would set up during the Christmas season, and I remember being eager to place the baby Jesus into the manger after midnight on Christmas Eve.  That Nativity set was the one physical object that I most associated with the holidays during childhood, and […]

Way back in February, I learned my cousin had a newborn daughter via Facebook.  Her name is Brooklyn. (Yes, like me, my cousin was born in Brooklyn, but he hasn’t lived there for about 20 years). I decided to make her a baby blanket using some stash yarn.  I started with the motif from Frankie […]
