So, obviously I made these socks a while ago because I have a child tumbling around my house somewhere these days. A big hearty baby. That baby is also my excuse for not making more stuff and not blogging recently. But you guys know, I’m always full of excuses. I’m just hoping a baby is… Continue reading Pregnancy Socks for my Big Fat Foot
I had this idea today- I’ll do a year in review post for my blog! Even though it’s pretty obvious that 2012 was the year I did the least amount of knitting in. That’s when I realized, I have like three projects I haven’t even shared with you yet. So, a year in review seems… Continue reading 2012 Project: Marin (for Mom)
Julie is almost done with her amazing Swirl sweater. She just has a sleeve left and then the seaming to do. Well, she also had some ends to tie up… Kind of disheartening. I’m pretty sure these sweaters are made specifically with old school knitting circles in mind. There are stronger women than me out… Continue reading OPP
If there’s anything you needed to do before the world-as-you-know-it ends, now is the time to do it. Because not only did I finish something but it was a lace something. A lace something. The Seaside Shawlette [rav link] which I happen to find anything with ‘lette’ at the end adorable. I’m proposing (via this… Continue reading Seaside shawlette
You may have noticed that I went missing for quite a few weeks. Things got busy here with the new house. But also, things went crazy with the new house and a visit from Granma. You remember Granma, right? Because I’m pretty sure she will adopt all of you. This was my favorite picture from… Continue reading What I Did On My Summer Vacation
I hope you all want to see a smug ass face. Yes, I finally have my very own Clapotis! Sure, everyone and their mother has knit one. But did they knit theirs with their very own yarn baby? Speaking of said baby, it really is beautiful. I’m not going to lie- I wasn’t 100% sold… Continue reading Win!
When you’re a little one, sometimes the simplest things to everyone else are a pretty big task in your book. Speaking of books… as much as I love them, they don’t really help in the matter. I think it was when I was fifteen that I finally started to think that a witch wasn’t going… Continue reading A Daunting Task
I woke up this morning to something quite peculiar… Wait a second! Has that bush always had strawberries on it? I started to fully wake up and I realized that we were indeed under attack. Now I’m no hortoherbgraphologist here but I’m pretty sure they aren’t supposed to grow on trees. Something freaky is definitely… Continue reading Strawberry Invasion!
Although sometimes it gets hot in the sun, so you’ve got to get some shade. Project Spectrum is a pretty cool idea… but I feel like there should be a Project Googly, where participants try to make as many things with googly eyes as possible. I got the pattern here.
My week so far seems to have a theme… kind of like an episode of Hogan Knows Best. I would draw this whole post out and do a sort of Blue’s Clues “can you figure out what I want you to do by searching for paw prints” post. However I feel like you might reach… Continue reading Something fishy…
