What Haven’t I Done?

It’s been busy in the craft department these 2 weeks…well, as compared to my previous weeks of… nothing or mostly nothing anyway. From crochet, to cross stitch, to jewelry making, and back to crochet I’ve been having some fun reacquainting myself to the joys of working with my hands. Advertisements

Hey Commish! Alternative Title: God my hands hurt.

Last Thursday a friend of mine asked if I would mind crocheting a blanket for her sister’s baby shower. She has yarn and a pattern picked out. Now I’m the kind of person who, when a friend asks me to do something like this I’m usually willing if they pay for the yarn, my friend…

Projects on the hook and more

Ok, on the subject of radio silence I have a really good explanation: I spent the better part of March moving (which was a mess) into an apartment with a host of problems all its own.  Add to this that my phone was stolen recently so I’m actually completely out of a computer and a…

Yarn, new crochet skills, TETRIS!

So this week hasn’t been as productive as I would like it to have been (when is this not the case?), or rather not obviously productive.  I did learn how to broomstick lace crochet (really cool, but tricky at first) and I really have this video to thank.  I needed to learn so I could…

The story so far….

So all those Tetris squares I had finished?  This is what they look like now.   I realized that if I wanted to use the zipper stitch to attach them together (which I do, it’s a very nice look), the edging I’d given them would get in the way.  Why didn’t I just take off…

What am I doing?!

So you know how I was working on the MLP pattern and said I hoped to have it roughly finished by the end of the week something like two months ago?  Yeah, let’s not talk about that right now. In news where I actually have progress to report, I’ve been through my extensive yarn stash…

Productive? What’s that?

-_-;;; I’m sure it comes to no one’s surprise that I haven’t been as productive this year as I would have liked.  Sure, I recently moved, but that’s not really a great excuse anymore.  I haven’t been a total slacker though; I’ve been churning out granny square blocks for my Tetris blanket when I want…

Another project down? I’m on a roll!

Anyone who knows me personally can attest that I’m awful about getting projects finished.  I’m working on getting better at that, but I’m still lagging on some of my Christmas presents from last year so…..  As is I’m planning on making out a list of projects I have promised to others and myself, it’ll probably…

Conquering demons

Hey, so I have recently managed to conquer a particular personal demon: the baby blanket.  Sure, other crocheters churn these out like nothing and like doing it.  Me? I have a notoriously short attention span and when something bores or frustrates me too much I tend to toss it away like a two year-old that…
