Hello friends! It's time for another, "I should be getting ready for work but decided to update my blog instead" post. Husband and I just came back from Indianapolis yesterday (thankfully smooth flights both ways and no travel issues that had plagued our last trip out there). The inspection went as well as it could… Continue reading Back from Indianapolis
We've got a finished cardi! With sleeves! The pattern was actually really easy to follow, and there is a great tutorial video to walk you through the steps (even though my brain took awhile to decipher the difference between front and back post crochet). Now I just need to wash and block it. The sleeves… Continue reading Ta Da!
Today's blog post is admittedly a cheater post. I figured there was no point in posting another picture of the same six squares of the Speckled Square Blanket I'm working on; progress has been very slow. There's of course my looming exam (136.5 hours in). We were also working on our wedding video this week,… Continue reading Neglected Projects – Lion Brand’s Simple Shrug
Good morning everyone! I'm back to talk about the July Little Box of Crochet project...a sweet clutch! Let's see what we've got. And if we open it up, we see... A very lovely postcard with birds. I adore birds, so I think I'll hang this up in my cube. And then... You get three pretty… Continue reading Little Box of Crochet – Sweet Summer Clutch Bag
Good morning! It's hard to believe it's already August 20th. The month is slipping through my fingers. Only 11 days left in the fiscal year and a little more than two months until my test. The past two weekends have been fun. On Saturday, we explored Bull Creek Park. It was beautiful. I definitely want… Continue reading Weekend Updates – Hiking, Magic (Cards) and Craftiness
I know promised a post about my finished Sailor Top from Fancy Tiger Crafts. I'm not sure if I'm any more blog-worthy than I was when I first completed this top, since I am running on about five hours of sleep and Fiancé is probably getting sick, which means I WILL PROBABLY GET SICK BY… Continue reading Project Complete! Fancy Tiger Sailor Top
I know it's only Monday, but is it Friday yet? Most of my mental energy has been occupied by work and wedding planning. But I've had some time to sneak in some crafting. As usual, there is not any real kind of logic to what I'm doing and why. And of course, right when I… Continue reading Wedding Procrastination Part 2: Craft Mania
Good morning friends! Today I want to talk about my first experience with crochet garment making! I made the Calvin Top from Wool and the Gang. With this project kit, you get three balls of Billie Jean yarn in one of three colorways. I made mine in Washed Out Denim. This yarn is made from… Continue reading Wearable Crochet – Wool and the Gang’s Calvin Top
HEY GUYS!!!! I'm back! My test is done! It was on Friday. It's a pretty intense experience - 8 hours of testing, 100 questions. It was open-book and you can bring in whatever references you want. It was pretty wild to see everyone wheeling around their carry-on bags full of books (myself included). I actually… Continue reading I’m Back!
Good morning everyone! I wanted to write out a quick weekend post since I wasn't able to update yesterday. I hope you all had great, restful weekends and a good start to your week. I feel much more like myself this week. I really attribute it to my weekend. It was definitely restful, like cuddling… Continue reading Starting the Week off Right
