There is so much laughing and funny looks around here. This puppet has been pretty fun to make, and it’s cracking me up. She’s been out on the coffee table for a few weeks now. No matter how many times
So many years ago, I designed this hat. I didn’t have a winter hat at the time and thought this would be awesome. It was totally awesome, aside from my lack of experience writing and designing crochet patterns. The hat
Today is finally the day that you can make your very own Larry Monster. He’ll hold your stuff, and look awesome doing it. He’s a bit functional art, a bit monster cozy. Mine holds my remote controls in the living room, so I don’t have to worry where the kids or cats may have placed them… a place for everything. I love him.
This is not an election post. A fissure has formed, and it’s bursting at the seams with our unhappiness. We are redirecting that unhappiness to places where it doesn’t belong, and we are normalizing things that should never be normal. It’s frightening, but this was
Weekends are a really important for resting. Working through the weekends wasn’t resting. Never taking a day “off” until I absolutely had to… wasn’t resting. Always feeling behind because there was no resting… isn’t resting. I have kids that need me
What’s the worst case scenario? I’m mean, really. How bad could it be if creativity isn’t focused? Let’s start with the story about how I wasted the better part of last year, jumping around to different creative ideas. Then let’s talk about how I tried to do too many things at once, resulting in me not reaching any of my crocheting goals. That’s a great story.
Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool is one of my favorite days of the year. Everyone I know, knows this. Jess isn’t available the third Sunday of October… ever. She’s at Rhinebeck, and she’s giddy. GIDDY!
This year I drove up by myself, after a night around the campfire… We’ll just say I didn’t leave as early as I wanted to. It happens. Everything was perfect… the weather, the people, and the crowd size. I spoke to vendors and the occasional fiber enthusiast that I may have bumped into. I got lunch from one of my favorite vendors at the fairground. I bought yarn, fiber, and combs. It was just a great day.
Holy crap, guys! Look at the awesome crocheting that’s happening over on the KBG Patreon! If you don’t want to wait, click here… Knot By Gran’ma is creating AWESOME crochet patterns, and I’d love your support. This is a long post. Please bear with me.
Make your edge look STUNNING after putting in all of that awesome crochet work. Since crocheting anything takes forever, don’t you think it’s a shame to leave your finished edge looking unfinished? Simply fastening off your yarn (the usual slip stitch and pull through) leaves a knot. It leaves your beautiful crochet looking like you have more work to do. You can do better, and your talent demands it. DEMANDS IT!
