Hi friends! I wanted to show the baby blanket that I recently finished! The sprig stitch is made using double crochet stitches (treble crochet in UK terms). It is a pretty stitch to use if you're wanting to experiment and try something different. I was inspired to use this stitch after watching a video tutorial… Continue reading Sprig Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket
Hi friends! Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was great - it was warm and sunny. We spent a decent amount of time outside - walked on South Congress Saturday afternoon and at a park Sunday. I hadn't been back to South Congress in a long time, and it's changed a LOT. It bums… Continue reading A Quick Update So I’m Not Late

It feels like when I was a teenager and in Algebra 2 class, and decided that… Continue reading Candy Cowl
