Things I’ve Crocheted Recently


I’ve been doing some crocheting over the last few months as it is my go-to dark season activity. Plus, right now it seems to be the easiest way to express some creativity instead of spending hours over in my studio. I guess I’ll take what I can get! My most recent completed piece is this […]

Icelandic Turtleneck Complete!


I finished the turtleneck last weekend, well really a day or two before that, but I touched up the sleeves a bit by adding two more rounds. For the most part I’m happy with the results. The blocking definitely made the sweater fit a little bit better but the loose area up at the top […]

2/3 Done | Icelandic Turtleneck


I haven’t been working on it straight, but if I can put in a couple of hours a night for a few nights in a row I get a lot done. It also helps when I get to a point that says ‘Repeat round 9 for 8(9,9,10,10) more times’. The parenthesis correspond to the appropriate […]

On the Hook | Icelandic Turtleneck


Last week my first Interweave Crochet magazine in awhile came and it ignited my need for crocheting immediately. Chris might tell you I went a little loopy.

Creativity Comes in Many Forms


A couple weekends ago we finally broke down and bought new phones and upgraded our cell phone plan to include texting. We could text before but we paid by the text not by an unlimited amount a month. We’d eliminated that when we were jobless in order to save some money. Anyway, our cell phones […]

Yarn Therapy


I toiled over this blanket for so long. Its original incarnation looked nothing like this. In fact it was going to be a simple square, half double crochet alternating between the back and front loops in a striped pattern. Somehow along the way I kept decreasing my rows. The first time I did not get […]

Leo the Model


So I made these two baby hats for some coworkers out of scrap yarn I had in my stash. Always a good thing to find a way to use leftover yarn! Leo obliged me with some modeling… A nice profile view. Not sure about this mom! But really, I’m just a cute baby! Of course […]
