Many apologies for Sari being half out of the video frame on this one. We're a bit rusty and our camera doesn't have a convenient way for us to view what's on the screen while it's recording, so we have to guess and hope we've hit the right spots on the sofa. Clearly we haven't. I hope it's not too distracting. After a year long hiatus, Sari and Jonas return, thanks in large part to some wonderful people they met while selling at markets in May and June. Updates on most recen
I debated whether to consider this post a crafting first or a finished object, as it's technically both, but since technology prevented me from actually publishing on Friday (and since I have work travel next week so I don't know if I'll get to writing my Monday post where I'd ordinarily cover the crafting firsts segment) I thought I'd just publish today and sort of consider it both? That's unimportant, really. What is important is what crafting first I've completed. Just now
Apologies for one more week of showing you all the same thing, but at least this week it comes with some additional content that serves as my excuse for one more week of the same thing. That's right, the Berocco sweater is still on the needles, although if I can put in some quality time over the next few days you might not see it again until next Friday (possibly this Friday if for some reason I manage to get ahead of myself). The below (admittedly poor quality) photo is of t
You read that right, everyone...I have more than one thing in progress! It doesn't happen that often (and honestly I wish it weren't happening right now), so you might want to take a moment to commemorate this day with me. I want to tell you that I hope I won't still have two things in progress next week, but unless something changes with my schedule and I get an unexpected run on knitting time, I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing these both again next week. That's the problem w
Hi all, The blue wrap is still not done, but I have good faith that you will not see it again here until it's done. I have finished tinking back all the extra pattern repeats I wrote and hope to start the final edging piece tonight. It should be done soon. Then it has to block, which as I mentioned before has its own set of challenges. So what is done? A project bag. It doesn't seem like much, and it isn't really, especially when you consider that I did all the cutting, sewin
I just got a really big bug to learn yarn dyeing so I can make character/other things inspired colourways for my fandoms that don’t have yarn colourways *cough*DragonAge*cough* (curse my sudden craving for Anders inspired yarns.
I have no knowledge of how to do this, very little time, probably no skill in actually creating variegations, and absolutely no available space. This is probably going to be a chaotic trip down a rabbit hole unless I get some quick intervention from
