FO Friday: Cozumel

(I wrote this a few weeks ago, but forgot to hit “Publish”, ha!) I actually finished a thing! It’s been a while since I’ve done that. For the Cozumel cowl I decided to block it flat before grafting the ends together. I took advantage of the heat wave and blocked it outside. I found that… Continue reading FO Friday: Cozumel

Knitting Olympics

(USOC can suck it, I’m keeping the title) It’s that time again! The Olympics kicks off tomorrow and I have set practically EVERYTHING to DVR! Which means I’ll be sitting in front of the TV a lot. Which means knitting is happening. This year I’m just gonna see how many socks I can crank out.… Continue reading Knitting Olympics

WIP Wednesday: Spin-Along

I’m working diligently on my Woolery spin-along/Tour de Fleece. I’ve been spinning at least a little bit every day except one where I was really busy. I’ll consider that my “rest day” for the Tour. I made a sport weight single sample, a fingering weight single, and another sport weight single so far. The sample… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Spin-Along

This spin-along is focusing on spinning more consistent yarns while aiming for a specific… Continue reading Tour de Fleece!

I’m not sure how to obtain all this information about patterns without Ravelry.… Continue reading Airtable

To Do’s and UFOs

I have a huge list of To Do’s that I’ve been avoiding. Mainly it’s because I’m being run ragged by kittens right now. We have bottle babies at the moment that until today were on a 4 hour feeding schedule. We also have a litter of older kittens that are easier to take care of,… Continue reading To Do’s and UFOs

Caturday: Biscuit

Remember the British Bakes? Well, we adopted Biscuit, the mama cat. I know, I know that means we have EIGHT cats now, but honestly, is eight so much harder than seven? My reasoning was this: Biscuit was just sitting at the shelter not getting adopted because they had to put a “no small children” warning… Continue reading Caturday: Biscuit
