Closing Ceremony

As is usual, watching ALL of the Olympics (excluding hockey) requires some catching up by the end. It took me three extra days to finish watching everything, so that’s why this blog post is late. I did stop knitting once the closing ceremony was happening in real time though. This is what I accomplished: I… Continue reading Closing Ceremony

FO: Cabled Tea Cozy

I finished a thing! My first finish of the year! It’s the cabled tea cozy I’ve been working on. This one required a lot of sewing up, which is my least favorite thing to do. Each side was made separately and then sewn together. Then a large i-cord was knitted and sewn around the edges.… Continue reading FO: Cabled Tea Cozy

All Caught Up

I added a wand to the Frogman though it wasn’t in the pattern. It just seemed necessary due to the first sighting including a wand… Continue reading All Caught Up

Stitching Away

Another being that I’m busy zooming during prime blogging time on Wednesdays so doing WIP Wednesdays is harder than it should be. Yet another reason being that I’ve… Continue reading Stitching Away

Spooky Season

I have a new project coming up soon, and I thought I’d show you a preview. It’s a cross stitch project, part of a stitch-along. It’s a sampler full of cryptids! I’m joining late, but not super late (it goes through January), so the first three cryptids have already been released. They are: Mothman, Fresno… Continue reading Spooky Season

Caturday: FIV in Kittens

WARNING: This post contains talk of kitten death.   The Kitten Lady posted a video today that prompted me to expand on it by writing this post. It’s all about FIV in kittens and why young kittens who test positive are most likely negative. Watch the video for a explanation as to why that might… Continue reading Caturday: FIV in Kittens
