My first finished project for the year was the Elisa shawl. I really wanted something a little elegant and basic but with a touch of lace and interest for work gatherings or dressier events. This was a perfect fit for what I had in mind and I had some…

Knitting Crochet: I’m officially tired of the stash and the cotton yarn and .. I just want to pick a nice pattern and buy the yarn to make it and stop shopping the stash. I have at least 3 patterns in mind that I’d love to make, someday. But, I’m being…

I’ve been a bit absent. A death, not great news from the dr (nothing serious, just a change in what I’d planned for my future), a new job, and a whirlwind of event / wedding prep has kept me a little off kilter in many ways. Luckily Jon has been wonderful…

Now that all the gifts have been given and exclaimed over … I can share the many completed projects. Everybody in Jon’s family was given a set of washcloths, each with their own color scheme and pattern. Jon’s mother also received a tiny crochet pug. We…

These took forever to finish. I wanted this yarn so much the first time it was available and I was never able to swing it. It came back for a limited time and I jumped on it. Between wanting to use absolutely every scrap of this yarn and wanting super…

I have a friend who doesn’t always remember how awesome she is. Well, I have several of those to be honest, because all my friends are pretty awesome, but at the moment I’m speaking of mac_arthur_park. She occasionally has moments where life is…

Knitting: I realized yesterday morning that I had no blue hat. Well, I do have a blue one but it’s a lighter blue than what I wanted to wear. So naturally I cast on a new one when I got home and found the right shade of blue in my stash. That’s normal,…

The first finish of the year is actually a project that Jon did. As part of my birthday present he took lessons from a friend to learn how to sew. He’s so good that now all weapon covers will be his job, he’s better at them than I am anyhow. These pants…

I happened across this super soft camo alpaca in my stash and asked Jon if he had any interest in me making something for him. He inspected the yarn, even rubbing it across his face, which made me giggle. He then said a hat would be best. That’s not how…

There’s been so much sewing and I’m no where close to being caught up on FO Friday posts … so the next several posts are going to be kinda like picture dumps. The first one up is a new tunic for Riddari. Obviously a fighter can’t go out to battle with…
