Finished, and not-so

You wouldn’t know it from looking at this blog, but there has been plenty of stitching going on in these parts since March. Where to begin? Hmm…in rather random fashion, then….. I started and finished this: It’s based on the YOLO shawl, but anyone who knows that pattern will recognize […]

Forgotten Finish-off Friday

I’ve been spending some time sorting the hundreds of photos that have accumulated on my computer. Among the many keepers (as well as scores and scores of shots that are too dark, too blurry, too wrong-angled, or just uninteresting–delete!), I found some pictures of projects that I never got around […]

A colorful challenge

So, so much has been happening since I last posted almost a month ago–the usual busy family things and frantic work things, but also lots of projects. First, I finished crocheting the girl baby blanket I’d written about last month, granny squares, joining, border and all. This weekend looks to […]

Finishes of all kinds

It has been a pleasantly productive past week! During my search for the missing pattern book, I turned up clothes, shoes, games, and books we’ve outgrown or replaced. A nice fat drop-off at the local thrift shop followed. …and you know how that goes. A closet purge feels good, so […]

Next on the list

It has been a hair-pulling kind of week around here. Of the four projects I’m currently working on, two are coming along mostly okay, one has had delays not of my making, and another is just not going anywhere yet. Then I got some poor feedback from one of last […]

…and the second one is finished!

The second of this year’s new mechanical doll dresses is done! The interesting thing is what a big difference the details make. I cut this dress and its fraternal twin that was finished last month from the same pattern pieces. They’re just put together differently. One has regular pleats at […]

End of the frenzy (for now)

For whatever reason, the odd compulsion to MAKE HATS was still with me this past week. After the first wave of August (?!) hats, and especially that brightly striped one, I had another color combination idea. This hat was the result. ‘Course, I always was a sucker for navy blue, […]

Finished dress

A couple weeks back, I swore that I wouldn’t start anything new until I’d made significant headway on something already in progress. It was unusually hard to hold to that promise since I have a couple of crocheted baby gifts planned for a shower coming up that I really felt […]

Slowed progress, and a new start

I’ve come to an unexpected stop (again) on my cardigan. I lined up the sleeves and discovered that they are different in width. See? The thing is, I can’t figure out why they aren’t equal. Although I threatened to, I never did switch to a different size hook. I’ve counted […]
