I have finally finished the last commission, and have decided this year, there is a good chance I will not open commissions as a new project has taken a hold of my creative heart. This is the commission I was working on, and since it is now at the home of the recipient, and they … Continue reading Happy Change of Plans
Welcome to January 3. Today’s project was to be an Easy Granny Square Poncho. Notice the was? I think the pattern was written in UK terms. Which is fine, I can translate, but as I did it in US terms, it wasn’t working out. When I did it in UK terms, it was even worse. … Continue reading Oof!
Welcome to January! Today was miserable and cold, so the project in my 365 Crochet book seemed to be perfect. A baby blanket! I was kinda surprised to find that I don’t have any baby yarn in my stash. So … I chose something else. A while ago, my sister-from-another-mister and her mum gifted me … Continue reading Day Two and a Challenge
One of the things I wanted to do, when this whole business thing became legit, was create my own labels and printed swag. That being said, I managed to get myself a new Cricut machine. Thus, time to learn! I started with making little signs for us and the family. Then went on to making … Continue reading Welp. Practice Makes Perfect
Over the past little while, I have been working on making Wyvern Hold a legit business in my province. Jumping through hoops and being patient, is so not my strong suit. Imagine my disappointment when the name I have loved for a couple of decades was denied. I sat down and chose three new candidates, … Continue reading New Name, New Adventure
A little while ago now, I finally picked up a new spinning wheel. Not new to me, new. Like new new. I’m so excited! I’ve been saving for this wee gem for a while, and now that I have her, I will be working hard on learning how to move from drop spinning, to wheel. … Continue reading Stashbusting & Paper Moons
The yarn is in … the project started. Because this commission is for a baby, I used two types of yarn, just to see what would work best for a wee one. I started with a cotton yarn, with the thought of “baby will slobber”. My own sensitive hands found the cotton was too rough. … Continue reading Baby Alien, and Others
Coming soon to this very page …. I was contacted by a dear high school friend, who had a friend looking for someone to commission some fandom pieces. What fandom you ask? Star Wars! I have been a fan of Star Wars, since the day A New Hope opened in theatres. 15 years later, I … Continue reading When my Geeks get married
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to write in this blog. I’ve been sidelined by a shoulder injury. Tendonopathy, to be exact. Crocheting has been painful, and knitting is totally out of the question. It’s been boring, not being able to have a hook in my hand, and make magic with yarn. … Continue reading Long time, No see!
