Oh, Canada
Last week I got to go on a business trip to the great city of Toronto, Ontario Canada. Skyscrapers, construction. It felt like most of the city was getting a facelift.  "Ripple Deck" at the Waterfront - beautiful area. It is a beautiful city, but it is also...

So you want to be a knitter...

The best kind of mail
...is sheep-y mail.  My post on the making of Eccles Cakes is taking longer to put together than I thought, so in the meantime, I thought I'd tell you about the exciting, fiber-related packages that have been gracing my doorstep as of late. Louet Drop-Spind...

Tutorial: Pattern Marking - Tracking Repeats
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that for the past few days I've had whole-day training classes at work, and I've been knitting away the whole time. I love  getting to knit during classes and other events. It feels so productive. I've always...

SPAKAL, TdF, and Hackle & Diz, oh my!
Hey everyone! The weather has finally turned here in New England, which means that a fair chunk of my potential blogging time is now taken up by family barbecues, parties, holidays, and gardening time (or else I'd have to give up crafting to write, which do...

Still here
Time flies. Two weekends ago, I was on a plane to Toronto and didn't have a chance to write. This weekend was consumed with Alpaca shearing (YES) and a friend's wedding (Congratulations again!). Today, I'm finally back home and settling in to a routine. Lot...

Cotton Candy Fractals
I mentioned on Instagram that I've been going through Felicia Lo's (of SweetGeorgia fame) " Spinning with Dyed Fibers " Craftsy class. It's a wonderful class, and terribly inspiring. So inspiring, in fact, that I took out my new drop spindle and began a sec...

Food Quest: Eccles Cakes
Do you ever get really excited to try a new recipe or cooking technique? I don't consider myself a certified "foodie", but over the years I have discovered that everything tastes better when it's home-made, and I love a good challenge or food hack. If you r...

A week without knitting
(well, mostly  without knitting - let's not get crazy now) Last week's marathon knitting was not sustainable. I know my limits, and it's fun to test them sometimes, but I also know when to stop. So this week, I knit a few rows on my sock-in-progress each da...

FO Double Post: Socks!
I recently got bit by the sock-knitting bug. This was due in a large part to the Socks With Sarah KAL going on over at Knitting Sarah , and all of the social media pouring out of that effort. A lot of the knitting bloggers I follow are participating, and th...

What are You Making?
Introduction
I do all sorts of crafty things, including but not limited to: knitting, sewing, spinning, jewelry making, interior decorating (well, I like to pretend anyway), baking, cooking, canning, and gardening. I currently work as a software developer at a major research corporation, but my dream is to own an alpaca farm, spin & process fiber, and maybe own a knitting/fabric store somewhere nearby.
Amanda Anganes's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
