October Reflecting

I've stayed pretty busy since the last big pattern release, so when 2/3rds of October sped by in a blink, I wasn't surprised. I'm so grateful for all the support my latest design the Yggdrasil Poncho received! I love creating and it's just so fun to share my love of crochet with others who know... 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...

I've been creakily trying to finish up some of the colder-weather projects that had remained in limbo before I switch gears and everything turns all bright... Continue Reading →

Tidbits Linen Stitch Bag

Remember Tidbits Linen Stitch? That was only my second post, from what seems like a million years ago (but was only 6 months). Well, that delightful diversion remained hanging from the knitting needle at the very bottom of my WIP basket since I posted that little tutorial. I've been cleaning up old hangers-on and scribbling... Continue Reading →
