We have a super snuggly kitty in our house, but it has been tough times. He has to hunt around the house looking for forlorn piles of clothing, unmade beds, or blankets that have been neglected. Comfort has been scarce and he often has to take comfort in the laps that are at times aloof… Continue reading DIY knitted cat bed.
I, assuredly, did finish this dishcloth in August, but things have been a bit busier than I anticipated. A lot busier! Knitting hasn’t been easy recently. Time is a small part of the reason. The other, main reason, is this guy. Look at that guilt! Literally every time I start to knit anything, he comes… Continue reading August Dishcloth!
Finally, after 3 + years, Rosie is finished! After many late nights, this marathon of a project is complete. Not that the project was that hard, there were a lot of parts to it, but many factors led to it taking forever to complete. We moved, three times (one being cross continental), everything we owned… Continue reading Rosie

I must be really getting into gardening this year because I can not stop thinking about worms. This book has been helping: It is very good and very interesting. So in anticipation for worms and spring and gardening, I have been reading this book, researching worm composting, and I made a wreath. Two wreaths in… Continue reading My ever-growing appreciation of worms!!!
In a desperate attempt to make my crafting more productive I have come up with some, reasonable goals. One of those goals is to make more things for myself/my family. Do you ever find that while you love creating and crafting and giving, often times you are only doing things for other people? I have… Continue reading Rugs and Washcloths: Monthly Projects: January
(Today I am joining up with the Crunchy Catholic Momma and her weekly Stash Bash. All materials used for this craft I already had in my stash. By making this project I bashed through some of said stash. Thus, the Stash Bash.) These Knit headbands are easy peasey. They are about the easiest project you… Continue reading Knit Headbands!
I finished the Dinosaur Sweater that I had been knitting for the Yarn-Olympics. As you may recall though, I did not finish in time to qualify for any prizes. Due to yarn complications and time restrictions my Olympic dreams were lost! However, back in September, I did finally finish the sweater. It is cute! I… Continue reading The Dinosaur Sweater!!!
So the sweater is going great. The intarsia isn’t that bad. Though I have about 10 bobbins attached right now. But really the sweater is going really great, using up lots and lots of yarn. That is where I ran into trouble. I ran out of yarn, I ran out of time and I ran… Continue reading Olympic dreams lost (yarn style).
Picture courtesy of the LambShoppe. My local yarn shop is hosting their own Olympics! The rules: you can’t have started until the official Olympic opening ceremonies, the project has to include a new technique that you haven’t tried, and you must have the project complete by the closing ceremonies of the actual Olympics. How exciting!!… Continue reading Yarn Olympics!
