To Boldly Go – Star Trek baby blanket

It has been far too long since I last updated here (I’m kinda putting off checking just how long), so it’s high time I updated. The anemia/depression/arthritis mix has really knocked me around, but I’m finally getting better. So I bring to you an update – a new pattern! This baby blanket was a custom […]

Star Trek CAL – FINISHED!

Yes, at long last, I’ve finished it. I started making it in June last year, but I actually created it before I made my Outlander blanket, so this has been a long time in coming. Last year was extremely rough for me, so finishing this blanket feels like a great way to start the new […]

Star Trek – the banner

There’s been a heatwave through my part of the state lately, so it has been absolutely disgusting here. My house doesn’t have air con and only one ceiling fan, so it is not made for this kind of weather. I have an air cooler, which is like a strong fan, so it hasn’t been a […]

Star Trek CAL – Deanna

Look look look! This is the LAST of the people to make up my blanket. I’ve decided against doing the banner for mine just yet – mostly because I don’t have the yarn I need for it and I’m too broke to go buy more – but I will still write up a few banner […]

Star Trek CAL – Worf

This panel has been a long time in coming, but it is finally done. The last few months have been incredibly hard for me, the last few weeks in particular. Between my daughter’s anxiety and my pain issues/levels, it’s getting harder to juggle working and trying to keep home going smoothly. She is seeing a […]

Star Trek CAL – Data

I finished making Data last week, but with how intense things have been around here with my daughter’s anxiety, I didn’t get around to weaving the ends in. I still haven’t, but thought I might as well post the pattern anyway. As weaving the ends is my least favourite part, I try to do them […]

Star Trek CAL – Wesley Crusher

Oh wow, it’s been over a month since I’ve worked on this blanket. Whoops! Things have been rough for us lately, but it’s hopefully improving. I am glad that I picked this up again, as it felt so good to make another panel. I’m not sure why I find these panels so relaxing, but I […]

Granny Square Day 2016

I’m still floundering around on Instagram, brand new and all shiny, but I’m having fun looking at what’s around. I like being able to pop something up there as I’m making it, rather than waiting to have enough for a post here. It helps me feel like I’m┬ádoing things, because stuff can be seen by […]

WIP it! WIP it real good!

In my last post I shared a photo of one of my many WIPs, a green and white granny square blanket that I started some time last year. It was something that I was making for me, knowing that I would be keeping it and not maybe gifting it. Most of what I make is […]

Easy like Sunday morning

It has been a rough, rough week. I’ve had a lot of pain earlier in the week, thanks to twisting my knee more than it wanted to (or should) go, and then a lot of parenting stress as we continue to work through my daughter’s anxiety issues. I didn’t feel like trying to follow a […]
