Hooded capes and WIP

It feels like I’m stuck in an endless loop of WIP that never get finished because I keep starting new things. With all the stress going on lately (due to my pain levels and my daughter’s anxiety), it’s been hard for me to finish things. I have no idea why I do that, but losing […]

Scarves and stress relief

Two posts in one night! I thought about waiting until tomorrow to post this one, but I’d rather get it done before I forget. A few weeks ago, A Yarny Robin had a yarn giveaway for her two year anniversary, and I was the winner! She sent me this lovely, sparkly, alpaca yarn from Louisa Harding. […]

I found this pattern for quickie slippers and had her choose the yarn. I did have to redo them a few times, as […]

My delights are nerdish.

I’ve been crocheting for almost five years now, and finally decided it was time to keep my work in one place. I prefer to crochet items of the geeky/nerdy/pop culture persuasion, and get a lot of satisfaction from making them. I rarely keep anything for myself, but that is part of the fun of creating. I […]
