About Town…

With our recent move, I am BEHIND on blogging! A bit of catch up for ya today.

Right before we moved, we had a fun date night, out and about in Charlotte.

It really is a wonderful city. Can you believe we lived a YEAR here and rarely ventured out? Cwazy!

A Year’s Worth of Crocheting

We often buzz through life so quickly that we fail to appreciate all the things we’ve accomplished and become.

I was a bit blue the other day when I realized just what a tremendous year I’ve had. I’d love to give you a quick sum of my crochet projects here. I’ll be doing a knitted version and more soon too.

I’m so inspired now to plan out next year!

I’ll link over to everything, in case you want to check anything out further. Most items have tutorials for you to follow along.

(Also, some projects didn’t make the cut. Either I didn’t take pictures […]

Spilled Wine Woven Scarf – Finished Object

Well, it happened.

I was sitting there all innocent-like in my living room one day, minding my own business, when it hit me:

The idea to weave a scarf with this Spilled Wine yarn.

It had to be done.

I raced up the stairs.

Hauled my 25″ Schacht flip loom (and 10 dpi heddle) out of my tiny craft room.

Plopped down in the middle of the living room floor and proceeded to warp my loom.

By the next day, it was done. And THAT… is why I love weaving. It gets the job done and fasssst.

I have been wanting to show you this since Christmas, as it was a present I made for my mom. But you know how time can just get away from you and things get pushed to the back burner.

Well, no more! I love this gradient shawl so much that I had to stop everything today and finally get a […]

The Power of Focus

Sweater News:

Well, lemme tell ya.

I am almost done with my Dark and Stormy Cardigan. Which, due to the Glass Blue color, is more like a “Bright and Clear” Cardigan. 🙂

I finished the sleeves earlier this week while watching Pride and Prejudice.

I’ve now picked up stitches all the way around the front and collar (while watching Sense and Sensibility).

Whew. The end is in sight.

I’m not revealing yet what I’ve decided on the collar, but will tell you next time.  (He he he.. *rubs hands together with a sneaky grin on face)

I am BLOWN AWAY by the number of responses (240 […]
