Craft Fairs!

This past weekend was craft fair weekend, apparently. Saturday morning, the French Nest Open Air Market took place at the City Park in Fort Collins. A large number of vendors of all sorts of crafty and vintage varieties set up on the lawn, and a couple of friends and I […]

Finished Object: Ishbel

I started working on Ishbel because I had (dare I say it) sort of burnt out on socks. (GASP.) Between yardage issues with the Sunshine socks and a strange unwillingness to work on the handspun socks, I figured out that I needed something not sock-like at all to work on […]

Bits and bobs

One project on the blocking boards, stretching out and hopefully drying out soon so I can weave in the ends and take some finished object pictures. A little ball of Koigu sent to me by an incredibly generous and lovely woman on Ravelry. The color matches perfectly and I CAN […]

Pattern Overload

You know that phrase, “my eyes were bigger than my stomach?” I’m pretty sure my eyes are bigger than my hands, so to speak. Maybe I should say “my knitting needles.” I feel like I have a million projects to do, and I’m looking forward so very, very much to […]

I believe in goals. I believe it’s good to have goals, to have something that pushes you to try to improve and expand upon a craft, or a talent, or anything of the sort. One of my knitting goals for the year was to finally knit a sweater or cardigan […]

All quiet on the knitting front

Well, the knitting has been happening, but I’ve been pushing to finish my February Lady Sweater, and not really taking pictures of things. However, I did finish it, and I snapped some pics of other projects today, so here we go! Last weekend, which I thought was THE Knit in […]

Sunny days are here, for now

I believe that, if it doesn’t rain between now and the nighttime, we will have gone 48 hours without any rain whatsoever. Apparently, I’m feeling inspired by all the sunshine. Is it silly to want to buy these buttons and then find the perfect matching yellow yarn to knit a […]

Photographic lament

Oh, Florida weather. Florida’s nickname is the Sunshine State, but anyone who’s lived here long enough and perhaps visited frequently enough will be able to tell you that during the summer, it rains every. Single. Day. And I like the rain, and we apparently always need the rain when it […]
