The yarn base is one I generally have almost a half skein… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 34

For the first time in the 13+ years we've lived here, we've had an actual monsoon-type summer which means that all the weeds which have been waiting patiently in the ground have really taken off. Which means weeding. Not a favorite activity but we've… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 32

Halfway through the year already! Here we are for week 26 of my Year of Projects. This week, I worked on: My Beach Walk Blanket.

Another craft-filled week - my DH was on business travel again (and he's gone again this week) - so I got a lot accomplished. First up, I finished the big cowl I was working on. This is a design from Joji Locatelli from a while back and I had earmarked 3 half-skeins of Spud and… Continue reading Year of Projects 2022: Week 21
