These are not my best work but I still finished the project for a friend. I’m glad I was able to figure out some sort of way for the fabric to cover the whole weapon, though I hate the hand guard that was attempted. They ended up failing due to poor…

I picked up spinning almost 2 years ago and yet, I’ve never finished any of the yarn. I’ve spun and spun and spun practice singles but then did nothing else with them. I did wind some of the singles off my drop spindle at one point with the vague…

When I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it. I started hoping I’d grab something to make it with on my next stash dip. I remembered that I had a bit of this yarn left over from a couple of projects and knew it just had to happen. I love how the […]

After making a blue tabard for Jon I had to have a dress to match. So I kinda made this one by accident. I cut the fabric and finished up a couple other projects. Then I figured I’d just sew the front part together, and well, the back is only 2 pieces,…

I think I finally have the sword that’s pretty perfect for me. I love how the handle has the extra leather under the sports tape. It keeps the sword from spinning in my hand so I’m hitting with the striking edge rather than the flat. I’m pretty happy with…

I fell in love with this yarn in Dallas at the DFW Fiber Fest. It’s so soft and cuddly. I was pretty happy to pull it out of the stash and see what it wanted to be. Luckily Megan suggested Hitchhiker. I love how the garter stitch allows the colors to…

Knitting: You’d think that once I hit the easy part I’d just fly through it. But there was a convention this weekend and I didn’t even pull out the stripy socks to work on them. Spinning: This is the newest spinning I’ve started. I just couldn’t focus…

Knitting: This will be a hat for me and I think it’s going to be adorable. I managed a lot of progress on the stripy socks this week as we had movie night Friday and then gaming on Monday. Sewing: The top fabric will be a tunic or Jon, just need to adjust…

Knitting: Toe decreases! I might even have them done before my interviews today. Then it will be time to grab another skein and figure out what it wants to be. I did a bit more on the stripy socks but only a color’s worth. Spinning: I think is the best…

Knitting: I have only a round or two to finish before I’m completely done with the gussett decreases. Then it will just be zoom down the foot to the toe. We watched a movie Friday night so the stripy socks were pulled out and another color was knit…

WIP Wednesday: Stitch Progress

Knitting: I have managed to get to the heel flap and should be able to do the turn soon. I love the turn, it’s like magic. The time traveler socks are coming along as well, thanks to Monday night gaming. And now they’re long enough to comfortably put the…

Knitting: The Gothic socks are progressing, albeit a bit slower than I’d like but that’s what happens when you have more hobbies than you do time. I’ve just finished the last repeat of the pattern before the heel so hopefully next week will see that…

Sounds interesting, though I never plan what I'm knitting next. I just grab yarn and see what it wants to be. :)
