Hanging out with Joe Quinn

Many people in my area (southeastern Virginia, that is) spent a good part of last week convinced that Hurricane Joaquin–or Joe Quinn, as my husband called it–was headed our way. When a big local event I’d been planning to attend over the weekend was canceled on Thursday in anticipation of […]

Plugging along

It has been another very busy few days around here. It seems like just as I get one thing under control, three more suddenly need attention IMMEDIATELY. Home things, work things, church things, you name it. You know those kind of days, too, I’m sure. But, there’s always a little […]

Ready for the Boardwalk

A few days ago I posted some pictures of projects I’d been working on during the last few weeks. What I didn’t say much about was this finish: the Boardwalk Bag, the pattern for the autumn crochet-along at Moogly. Ta-da! The shape and size of my finished bag are true […]

Boardwalk progress

And that’s where my Boardwalk Bag is so far! This is the color combination I finally settled on for the Moogly Mini Crochet-Along project. I like how it’s coming along so far, but I’m not yet convinced I don’t need to try out one of the other combinations I’d considered, […]

Yarn quandary

Here you see two of my current long-range projects–a crocheted shawl I haven’t posted about even once yet though I started it months ago (eek!), and some knitted socks. Bad news is, both projects are stalled right now. I sort of hit the boredom wall on the shawl since it’s […]

Socking it

You might look at that photo and think, Wow, she’s even a slower knitter than she says. That doesn’t look like much progress since the photo two weeks ago. No, it’s not. But not because I’m quite as slow as all that. I had a series of alarming stitch-dropping incidents. […]

two quick finishes

I have several long-term projects going on that I really ought to have been working on, but instead I set them all aside in favor of some instant gratification this past week. Of course, the fact that a cousin has a new baby is a terrific excuse to crank out […]

stitch and read?

A few weeks ago (okay, it’s actually been well more than a month now, but anyway), I finally managed to post in time for one of the Finish Off Fridays that I read every week. So here’s another first today: I finally am posting–though screeching in at the very end […]

Emerald bath robe

Here’s my latest finish: a short-length, short-sleeve bathrobe. It’s awfully simple to look at, but this finish feels like a big victory. Hmm, let me count the ways! 1) Both the fabric and the pattern were free. The pattern came from one of Tillie’s books. I suppose you might call […]
