I took Kiddo to the orthodontist yesterday, and brought my knitting with me. I’ve been doing that lately. I do a lot of running around and have been making sure I have some knitting with me. All I wanted to
So many attacks on women’s healthcare availability and rights… For real? Women’s rights are human rights, no? I’ve had enough. I’m standing up for women’s healthcare rights. Healthcare for women should be personal, private, safe, and affordable. Women are human
These puppets may be my all time favorite crochet pattern design that I have ever come up with. Scratch that. They are my all time favorite design. I’ve been quietly designing and testing these patterns for the KBG Patreon page.
There is a crochet story behind the Zombie Football Player Dolls. So seven years ago (more of my old is showing) I was contacted by Carrie Harris, author of, “Bad Taste and Boys.” Her book was coming out, and she needed a Zombie Football Player Doll crochet pattern so she could make a bunch of zombie football player dolls to give away when her book came out.

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 I see her, it’s still a little unsettling that there’s a head just laying there.

It’s going to be awesome. But for now, she’s just a floating head; hanging out on the coffee table for us to play with.
