Yarn and Other Delights

I've been so busy over the last few months, I've barely had time to breath let alone think about putting two coherent thoughts together. One thing I've been doing - crocheting. This weekend I went to a huge sale at Herrschners. It was LOVELY. Yes I know it was shopping but I got to look … Continue reading Yarn and Other Delights

Getting a Project Started

Recently I pulled out a bag of yarn and said, I'm going to use up all of these cakes. I only had one skein or cake of each color. This limits what I can make from these as they were each multi-colored. Combining the colors was not really an option. I decided I was going … Continue reading Getting a Project Started

How I Design

I've made my own patterns for decades. I love using yarn and my hook to make something that I need or want. My obsession with crochet started at 12 and has worked it's way from something fun to a passion. I like the exploration of designing and the creativity. What does it look like if … Continue reading How I Design

Crochet Weekend

Today is going to be a crochet day.  I think I have three episodes of Midsomer Murders left so I'll probably finish off those while I work on crocheting.  My goal this weekend is to finish some socks and work on a blanket.  If I manage to finish all of those, I'll look again at … Continue reading Crochet Weekend

Bulging To Do List

I've been working on a story almost non-stop for several months.  I like how it's developing.  I like how it changed from what I thought it was going to be.  It was flowing nicely and then life got complicated.As is usually the case, my brain can only handle so many tasks and then it rebels.  … Continue reading Bulging To Do List
