Embrace Spring

I feel like when winter hits, all of my projects become extremely colorful, like I’m wishing for more than just a dull landscape of white, blue, brown, and grey. I stare at those colors often from my office window, wondering how I can spice up my view, be it plants on the windowsill or hanging […]

Go for the Gold Scarf

With cold weather comes a desire for a lot of scarves and other neck covers. I made this particular one for myself. I chose to do more of a color block with it, so I made the lace portion a different color from the main body of the scarf. I’ve already gotten several compliments on […]

Orange Love

I finished this back in December as a gift for my grandmother. I hadn’t really made her anything since I was a teenager after she had first taught me how to crochet. I thought it would be nice to send her something handmade and, honestly, it was really the only thing I made this Christmas. […]

A House to Ourselves (Also Umbreon)

So, life has been interesting. This week, I learned that I do not know how to handle the types of stress I’ve been handling. Or I mistakenly thought I had a handle on my stress, when in truth, I really don’t and it’s causing me some hesitation and making me wonder if I should seek […]

Do or Do Not, There is No Try

My dad’s birthday was this week and at the beginning of the month, I decided to send a gift this year. I haven’t done that in a little while because I hardly have time for gifts and stress enough with Christmas. It’s not a really good excuse, but it’s what seems to happen with me […]

Cozy Chic Cardigan Take 2

And I finished the latest project, which I’m taking with me on a work trip next week. Pretty thrilled this one actually fits me and isn’t over sized. I think that’s a sign I’m starting to get this cloth making thing with crochet. I will say, dolls and accessories are way easier to make. So […]

December Crochet Crazy

This is a post that’s been a while in the making. It’s been taking me a bit to pull the photos from my camera and then sit down and actually look at posting them up. These were gifts that I gave to family and one was for a white elephant. I made a unicorn for […]

Ravellenic Winter Games

It’s been a long week of still trying to catch up with things for work (especially since I was gone for 3 weeks) and in between all of that, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the Ravellenic Winter Games. This occurs during the Winter Olympics and the goal is to complete as many projects as possible in […]

Version of Minion Bob

This is from a pattern set I picked up a while back, but I’d only done one of the patterns (Kevin) from it before. I made a few modifications to it as I worked on it. I also made it for Russ’ mom who is a HUGE minions fan. It was time (and she really […]
