Art Yarn Overload

Thanks to a pro tip from a fellow Instagram spinner, I bought a jumbo bobbin and flyer kit for my Ashford Traveler wheel a few months ago and I have been loving it! Rather than get a whole new wheel for spinning bulky yarns, the jumbo bobbin kit allows me to spin all kinds of... Continue Reading →

Time and Tied

My ideas have seemed a bit dammed up lately, to be honest. Not for lack of inspiration, and not even for lack of time  - okay, maybe a little bit for lack of time. Even though I have tons of time to work on crochet et cetera, it never seems to be enough for the... Continue Reading →

Lotus Mandala Duster

After seeing some great circular vests and talking about them with a fellow crocheter last festival, I came home inspired to do something I've had in my notebook for a while - rework my Lotus Throw pattern into a mandala-based circular vest!

Thanks to a combination of schoolwork and holiday traveling, I haven't written very many substantial posts for the past few weeks, but I've been eagerly awaiting a chance to sit and write some fiber reviews. A while back I became very interested in spinning Targhee wool: Targhee is a breed of sheep developed in the... Continue Reading →

Winter Updates!

I disappeared into an intense bout of spinning lately, trying out my new colorway with a fractal ply to test the harmony of the colors. It turned out GORGEOUS, and pictures will be shared as soon as I'm done setting the twist. The second run of the colorway, "Mango Punch" is officially available in my... Continue Reading →
