Just a quick post

Things have been really tough of late (including a trip to the ER for some agonizing sciatica pain), so while I am still crocheting and posting on Instagram, I obviously haven’t been posting here. I do plan on making a few posts soon now that I’ve finished making Christmas presents. I’ve also noticed that I’ve […]

Star Trek CAL – Beverly Crusher

I’m still reeling from the Outlander season 2 finale right now, so I thought it would be a good time to get this post out. I had to wait for my daughter to go bed before I could watch it, as So-Ho changed the time it aired from 8:30 to 7:30, which bugged me greatly. […]

Outlander blanket – take two

I’ve started a Star Trek blanket, but for that I’ve used a 3.5mm hook instead of the 5mm I used for my Outlander and Doctor Who blankets. I don’t usually use that size hook as it feels too small for my hands (especially on bad pain days), but I love the results. So much so, […]

Outlander blanket – FINISHED!

After a week of a lot of pain (arthritis and back, and then some lovely wrist pain thrown in this weekend), and parenting stress (child with GORD/GERD who will be having surgery soon and who’s also seemed to develop some strong anxiety, which is a new world to me), I was able to put it […]

Outlander CAL – the banner

Oh. My. God. The episode¬†Faith was a heart wrenching ride, with a phenomenal performance from from Cait. I was in tears by at least halfway through and didn’t stop until it was over. Having read the books several times, I knew what to expect, but holy crap. It was so much better than I expected, […]

Outlander CAL – alternate squares

I thought I’d whip up a few other characters, in case someone wanted to include them instead of the ones I’ve already done. As I mentioned in my last post, I won’t be including the written instructions for them as I won’t be making them as well. I have included links to the photos that […]

Outlander CAL – Roger

As I mentioned in my previous post, this won’t be the wee Roger we’ve seen so far (as cute as he is), but when he’s all grown up and known as Roger Mac. For those who’ve read the books, you’ll know all about him. I’ve included him because I think he’s one of the core […]

Outlander CAL – Je suis prest

I actually finished this square a couple of days ago, but because my back still hasn’t recovered fully, sitting at my desk starts to hurt after too long, so I had to put off posting it. I’m already halfway through the next square, because sitting on the couch doesn’t hurt much. For those who aren’t […]

Outlander CAL – Brianna

Thanks to insomnia and hurting my back, I’ve been able to finish the next square faster than I anticipated. Being unable to do much but sit or lie down for the last 36 or so hours has been good for my crocheting, at least. And for once, my arthritis wasn’t playing up, so my hands […]

Outlander CAL – The Fraser Stag

One thing I like about the C2C stitch is the ability to fix some mistakes without having to frog it. I’ve been extra tired this week, so I noticed three blocks were the wrong colour (yay for not paying attention :P) and had the choice of frogging it all the way back or trying to […]
