I do like a challenge

A dear friend of mine is getting married in just two and a half weeks, and I am incredibly excited to be able to attend (wedding is in Colorado, I am in Florida, this is going to be the wedding for which I have traveled the farthest, and only the […]

A status report

I’ve finished a few projects and started a couple of others, so I figured I’d share. I gave into my impulse and bought some of the Limited Edition Lorna’s Laces colorway from Jimmy Beans Wool. The color for April was Robin’s Nest, and it was just so pretty. My Hedera […]

I love swaps

Swaps are great. They encourage getting to know new people, as well as accumulating karmic participation points. You get to buy stuff, guilt-free, because it’s for someone else, and then, you get stuff and it’s guilt-free too, because you didn’t buy it. Really, swaps are great. And they’re especially great […]

Let’s play a little game.

April 1 is apparently “Flash your Stash” day, among other days, and while I took photos of almost all of my stash on that day, I didn’t get around to posting them here. So now I am, and we’ll play a game. It’s called “can Amy name all the yarn […]

Pomatomus Socks

Last week, I finished my Pomatomus socks by Cookie A. I had started on them at the end of January, but put them down sometime in February to try and motivate myself to finish some other projects that had been on the needles for a very long time. The yarn […]

Does souvenir yarn count as stash?

Sock yarn supposedly doesn’t count as stash, yet mysteriously does take up room in one’s luggage. Despite my … efforts (I would say “best efforts” but I’d be lying a little bit), my stash reduction program is not going quite as smashingly as I would have liked. Things are being […]

Sweet Honey Beret

I have returned from my mini-vacation to Maryland and I had a great time. I took a ton of photos including these finished object photos! Okay, since the hat is on me, I obviously didn’t take these, but you know what I mean. Faina Goberstein’s Sweet Honey Beret (Ravelry) caught […]
