I’ve been seeing lots of questions about skill level within both my little knit and crochet community as well as the other yarn related communities I’m a part of. Everyone wants to know, “What skill level am I really?” Thanks to the Craft Yarn Council, there are some easy standards you can check to find
Who needs clothes in their closet anyways!? Share this post if your closet looks more like the one on the right than the one on the left. I know mine does!
I’ve been told in the past that I’m not easy to buy gifts for…. Perhaps the cozy, over-sized sweaters, the yarn over-flowing out of my far too huge purse, and the crochet hook sticking out of my back pocket aren’t solid enough clues. I’m easy to shop for. I promise. So am I alone?
Check out the details on how you can win 10 of my patterns (you choose which ones!) at the bottom of this post. As many of you know, we welcomed our sweet little Netherlee into the world on May 25th. We feel so blessed to have such a healthy baby girl to be a sister
Just got a new angora bunny this last week and I have to say….I’m in love! So I’m sharing a few photos here for you. On top of her sweet personality, her fur is simply amazing! Can’t wait to be able to spin some up someday. [mc4wp_form id=”897″]
It’s been one of those days….you know the kind. The kind where I simply can’t work up the motivation to do anything other than surf the internet (which has actually led to some excellent finds today!) or take a nap. It’s a wonder I’m ever able to get anything done knowing that my work is
It’s time for some crafting confession….. Comment on this post and let me know what your worst crafting habit is (or at least what those around you claim it might be)! Hehehe….I’m eagerly anticipating a jolly good laugh while reading these! [mc4wp_form id=”897″]
I don’t often share behind the scenes stuff about my designing process….Probably because I’m such a mess over here! In fact, it always really makes me smile when people compliment my work with “you’re so talented! This must be so easy for you.” or similar statements. The truth is, designing new patterns isn’t “easy” for
We’ve all had those moments….you know, the ones where you just want to shrink away because you have a contrary opinion? Apply this to the world of knit and crochet, though, and things can get even more interesting. I recently stumbled upon an awesome thread about “Unpopular Knitting Opinions” over on Reddit. Some of the
After last week’s yarn silliness, I am so excited that a few of you decided to join me in playing with your yarn! Everyone who played along seemed to be having a great time….which was really the exact purpose of this exercise. Sometimes we get caught up in life and forget to let go and
Ever wondered what a true yarn addict might look like? Ponder no more….. I spent a little bit of “quality” time with my yarn this morning as I was prepping for a guest blog over on The Crochet Crowd. The self-timer feature on my camera is dangerous….With nobody looking, it was pretty easy to get
There was a time in my life when I knew nothing about boys. I wouldn’t have admitted it then, but now I’m more than willing to confess how truly clueless I was. After all, I was raised with a sister, and though my dad tried as hard as he could to turn me into a
As crafters, I’m sure we’ve all had our fair share of embarrassment…..I know I have! It was pretty humiliating when that knit blanket I made for my nephew turned into a table runner and chewed holes through itself (that couldn’t have been me dropping stitches! No way!). Or that time I bragged on myself the
