Yearling Headband

I've always had a natural love of animals and being raised in the country meant I had a lot of exposure to all sorts of them - in particular I loved the white-tailed deer that would sometimes appear on the edges of the yard, majestic and graceful but powerful as well. Anyone raised around their... Continue Reading →

The Only Constant

One of my favorite sayings goes "The only constant is change." It reminds me that the live happily in life, you always need to acknowledge the shifting nature of it. If you go along expecting everything to be the same, always resisting when forced to take paths that you didn't intend, life and it's transformative... Continue Reading →

Alpaca Handspun Wrap

Forgive me, fiber darlings, as the golden falling walnut leaves and the true approach of autumn sends me into paroxysms of nostalgia - you see, I've completed a very long personal fiber art project, and will not hesitate to use it as an excuse to wax sentimental 😉 Translation: This is a long personal reflection...

Mori Beret

It all started in fall of 2015 when I searched around the internet for a good, simple crochet beret pattern, one with a classic shape good for regular ol' worsted yarns.Finding nothing that appealed to my particular idea of what I wanted, I sat down and crocheted it myself and debuted the pattern for free...

Though any crocheting without a pattern could technically be called freeform... Continue Reading →

Video Game Guy Backpack Tutorial

Let's say for the sake of imagination that there's a story featuring an adventurous youth and his acerbic canine best friend, who live in a slightly macabre and trippy video game world and have adventures. We'll call it "Adventuring Friends." I think that in that world, they'd probably have a sentient portable video game console.... Continue Reading →

Sunflower Lotus Vest

It's been a while since I made the Lotus Vest, the Free-Size circular shawl version of my Lotus Mandala design, seen also in the Lotus Duster (all free patterns available on my blog - just follow the links!) So there I was, trying to use up some of my Quarantine stash while on Staycation, and... Continue Reading →

Going the Distance

Happy Monday! I hope everyone out there is feeling well and healthy - I am, if just a touch stir crazy. But the weather is beautiful and I've been blessed with a lot of opportunities to hike out in the isolated woods recently 🙂 It's been a few weeks since my last blog post, so... Continue Reading →
