Changing Things Up & Why it Helps our Creativity

Today I’m going to be writing a bit about something I’ve been both experiencing and thinking about over the past few weeks. The title kind of gives it away, but it starts with me lacking some motivation to craft. When I first started knitting and then for the past few years, I’ve done nothing butContinue reading “Changing Things Up & Why it Helps our Creativity”

#agahwFadeDyeALong Skein 2 – Thoughts of a Yarn Dyer

I’m currently dyeing up a fade kit over on my YouTube channel and I’ve been looking to the viewers to influence how the skein will be dyed next. I think it’s been pretty successful and last week, I posted the Skein #2 Dye with Me. The event itself has certainly been a learning experience forContinue reading “#agahwFadeDyeALong Skein 2 – Thoughts of a Yarn Dyer”

Yarn of the Month Club – July – September Recap

Today I shipped off the September shipment of the yarn of the month club. This is pretty exciting for me as it wrapped up the first 3 month yarn club as well. I can’t help but reflect back on the club now that three months have past. Did you want to order the September club?Continue reading “Yarn of the Month Club – July – September Recap”

The Short and Long of Knitting Sleeves

At this point in my knitting “career” (but really, knitting hobby, spare time, whatever we want to call it), I have knit myself 7 sweaters.

This makes the mostContinue reading “The Short and Long of Knitting Sleeves”

In situations like this, how do you cope? What new things excite you that you didn’t know would before (ahem… gettingContinue reading “A Change in Pace”

What I’m Doing with Yarn Leftovers

I can’t imagine any fiber artist out there that doesn’t have leftovers in there stash. Am I wrong? I think a lot of people set out to use up their leftovers or knit from stash as a way to alleviate guilt in buying yarn. I want to say flat out here, I full on encourageContinue reading “What I’m Doing with Yarn Leftovers”

Weave It In Wednesday

I’ve never experienced more uses for the “finish” like I have as a crafter. Example 1. Me: It’s finished!!! Him: Are you going to wear it? Me: well, it’s not finished yet. See those ends hanging out? I still have to weave in all of the ends. Example 2.Me: It’s finished!!! Him: Even the ends?Continue reading “Weave It In Wednesday”
