Spooky Friday Finds

It’s Rhinebeck weekend, so be sure to follow me on Instagram as I wander around trying to not buy yarn or eat my weight in apple cider donuts! I kept seeing a bunch of really cute Halloween-inspired patterns over the last few weeks, so you’re getting a massively spooky edition […]

FO: Crochet Afghan

I FINISHED SOMETHING. More importantly, I finished something that is, quite literally, the WIP that has been in progress for the longest time I’ve ever known. See, this afghan has a story behind it. My mother, as she is wont to do, likes to give me things as she’s finished […]
