FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Two finished things to share this Friday. It sure felt good to get a few more things crossed off my Year of Projects list. Frostwork Scarf: This pattern (Ravelry link) is another great one from Susanna IC. The pattern comes with instructions for a scarf and a blanket (or really large shawl), but I felt… Continue reading FO Friday: July 16, 2021

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

A quick note to start today's update post that I've created a separate "checklist" page for all the projects for the year here. It'll help me be able to find them and if you're popping in late, hopefully will help keep you from having to search for the master list. So what have I been… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 2 Update

Not just a Work in Progress Wednesday, but more like a What I'm...... Wednesday. I'm in the midst of several larger knitting, spinning and reading projects, so I thought I'd do a mid-week summary, just to document. Knitting: About a third done the Frostwork Scarf.

Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 1 Update

Off to a good start, although a bit misleading since I did start the Lightweight Hipster scarf (Ravelry link) before July 1 as I wanted to use it for another challenge's project.

Update – Year of Projects: 2021-2022

I've been enjoying reading the blog posts of the Year of Project participants who are finishing up (or doing a mid-year check-in post) for the 2020-2021 year. I hadn't really considered adding anything other than knitting projects, but having seen so many other interesting crafts highlighted, I think I'm going to add to my goals… Continue reading Update – Year of Projects: 2021-2022

Weekending – June 11, 2021

It's well and truly feeling like summer here these days - highs in the mid-80s to low-90s and wind. I am not a hot-weather girl AT ALL, so this kind of weather finds me retreating inside with a book, iced tea and crafting projects. I don't know if I'm just on half-speed because of the… Continue reading Weekending – June 11, 2021
