2016 was for weaving


There may have been some baskets too.

I’ve totally been slacking so far this year. (Obviously, since my 2016 wrap up is coming the end of February)There are a lot of things I need to buckle down on, not just knitting and blogging and weaving. 

Here’s to getting shit done in 2017.

Hai! Happy New Year?

Or should I say Happy Random Tuesday in January? I’m being held hostage by the promise of someone coming to fix the air conditioning. Because it might get to 80F this week. Homie don’t sleep hot. 

It is that time of year again. What used to be Cookie Made Me Do It has become Cow Made Me Do It.


So the Holy Mother of All Crankiness is making me clear out some of my WIPs and she made me cast on a sweater. In Noro. I must have committed some huge sin.*


I might, might, do a post of everything I finhed last year, but don’t hold your breath. What are you working on today.

Happy Tuesday y’all! 

* I’m actually enjoying knitting with some bigger yarn and the sin may be blaming her. However, she drug me into mittens years ago and will never live it down.

Another weekend camping

We went to the same place, but alone this time. It was cloudy and cool and we spent all day Saturday around the fire. There was knitting and kanoodling. No kayaking or fishing because of all the cold. Cold for us wussies down here anyway.

We had been planning on doing a longer trip over Thanksgiving, but with highs in the low 50’s and lows in the mid-30’s, I voted that down.

If you noticed, I am wearing my Team Ever After Hat. Please consider donating to either of our Bike MS 150 rides. Even $5 makes a difference.

Happy Thursday y’all.

November Goals

Because we all gotta have them, right?

Wax my wood
Assemble my new loom
Put October’s Spunky Eclectic project on the old loom and weave a row or two.
Figure out how I’m going to finish off my last woven project
Work on thing that was going to be for my swap partner, but I never finished.
Go camping

Speaking of that last woven project.

Happy Thursday y’all!

Family vacation

We went camping at Mustang Creek October 7 the through the 9th. It was the first time nighttime temperatures dipped into the 50’s this fall. And the only fall like temperatures we’ve had. It has been in the 80’s all day since then. I can’t wait for our next trip.


Yes, there is even a picture of some knitting in there. It was hopefully for my swap partner, but shit happens and I haven’t picked it up since.

Did I mention I put the tent up all by myself?

Happy Thursday y’all!

For the 12th year of blogging…

…my true love gave to me…

A weekend camping and mostly unplugged. Kind of fitting, eh? 

I strolled through those first few months and WOW, was that painful!

I was a cross stitch blog, then knitting, then Squish, then farm, and then nothing for almost a full year. I’m not sure what kind of blog this is anymore. 


My first blog picture 

It seems like ravelry killed knit blogs. Most of the people I started following no longer have blogs. Margene and Cheryl are still around as well as a few of those North East people. Some people quit knitting. Some moved on to weaving and other crafty endeavors. In the past 12 years, I’ve met a few of y’all in person and I swear next year I am going to Alta to finally meet some of those Utah ladies. 

Because I am in a mood, I am going to give away a prize. (I was a comment whore in the beginning, and I apparently still am) Leave a comment letting me know how we met (blog, Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, real life) and I will use a random number generator to give the winner their choice of :

1. The yarn and pattern for the baa-ble hat


Or 

2. A scarf woven by me


Or

3. A skein of Beaverslide sock in Geranium and a Ravelry pattern.

Happy Saturday y’all!
