6 Reasons Crocheters Should Bring Knitting on Everyday Adventures

6 Reasons Crocheters Should Bring Knitting on Everyday Adventures

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 do was finish casting on 92 stitches and use the long tail cast on (because I can finally do it, but mess up the length on the tail every time…). I was hoping to not mess up. (I did.) The waiting room was packed full of kids with braces and their parents. I felt simultaneously awesome and awkward just knitting away.


The Great Skull Square Graph Update

The Great Skull Square Graph Update

Man, this is an old design. It was originally published in January of 2009. Can you believe that? It’s been missing from the crochet pattern shop for a long time. There’s a push (from me) to update any old crochet patterns that I still love, and this one made the list. It’s been simplified and is back up in the shop(s). The skull square used to be one of my best sellers. I’m happy to have it back, but I really can’t wait to see what kind of cool skull stuff you all make out of it.

Cheesburger Party Bus and Marigold Whoopty Whoop Hand Dyed Yarn

I ordered this undyed yarn months and months ago. Then life got in the way, and it just sat there… waiting for me to dye it into cool yarn. I’ve finally figured out a system that allows me to get a little done at a time. These 2 new colorways are pretty sweet, and hopefully will be repeatable. The third colorway is still in its pan. I’ll rinse it out tomorrow night. It should be ready to list in a few days, but for now, back to these 2 beauties.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday – Crochet Patterns I Want to Make

Mostly Wordless Wednesday – Crochet Patterns I Want to Make

It’s all about the computers this week. I finished up my projects, and I really need to get these 4 patterns finished and to the testers. It’s time to buckle down and get these out to you. Being, that it’s me on the computer this week, I don’t have my usual progress pictures to share. Instead, I thought I’d share the crochet and knitting patterns that I want to make for myself or family/friends.
