Hello! I am Back, Let's Get Caught UP

Catching up

First time ever scrappy socks made for the Instagram Monster Sock Kal in September. I was skeptical at first as my sock yarn scraps are diverse! But I gave it a try and ended up winning first place!!!

Broken Arm Means a Change in Projects


A change in crafty plans - no knitting or embroidery for awhile! Broken arm - but isn’t that neon pink cast totally cool?

So after a week of being quite cross about what I can’t do - which is most everything - I took my wise mother’s advice and tried to think of what I CAN do.

The wonderful image above was shared a few days ago by my friend, Joseph, a very talented Portland, OR Photographer. Find his images on Instagram as gemini_digitized here. However, this post has little to do with his images and everything to do with his fatherhood.

Woolly Caterpillar after a gentle rain

First things first - Happy New Year everyone!

This is a post that I really intended writing a year ago in January. It’s message however, behind as it might be, is just as important - maybe more so.

My little woolly caterpillar caught out in the rain is serving as an abstract view of the internet universe.

Yarn Stars. The Perfect Last Minute Ornament or Decoration.

Yarn stars 2015

Yarn Stars make beautiful, very last minute ornaments for holiday decorating - tree ornaments, garlands, gift tie-ons, hanging in windows. Diane at craftypod and I had a little yarn star making playtime with family and these were the results.

As you can see, even if you sort of lose your way and go a different direction, as long as you are consistent, the star should work out. Notice the cool open weave of the grey and red star above. I love it!
