I had a little good, clean (messy) fun today. It started on Twitter, as all good things do, when Stacey said this: Hair chalk is a trend? I didn’t even know it existed! I feel so behind, sometimes… — Stacey Trock (@FreshStitches) February 28, 2013 And, well, I didn’t know it existed either, and I […]Read More: Fun with chalk
Guess what this is. This is the unused yarn that I have after hooking the last stitch on Aidan’s hexagon blanket. Wait, did I just say last stitch, as in, the blanket is finished? Indeed I did. And I’m about 3 weeks ahead of schedule! Last time we talked about it, I had a small […]Read More: Ahead of schedule
Isn’t it exciting when the end of a long-term project is within reach? While there’s something nice about the process, there comes a time when the process gets to be too tedious for words and all you want is to move on to the next thing! Been there? Well, today I am so happy because […]Read More: Getting closer…
I have to keep the words few and far between today. We have a little birthday get-together happening this weekend in honor of Boring Office Guy, and I still have a lot of prep work to do. And when I say “prep work” I don’t mean cool, party-related stuff, but embarassing stuff like disassembling the […]Read More: Weekend Favorites
Sometimes, when you’re in the middle of a long-term project, you just feel the need to cross a finish line. Any finish line. This was me last week. I love working on the blanket, but man, I’ve been doing the same thing since January! I needed a little break. Good thing I have a few […]Read More: Finish line
You’ve probably noticed that I am measuring my weekly goals in 18 hexes at a time. It’s not as arbitrary as it sounds. It’s based on the colors I’m using. Remember way back at the beginning we talked about choosing yarn for your blanket? If you haven’t seen that post, go ahead and take a […]Read More: Hexagon blanket: why 18 at a time?
I logged on to my Flickr account yesterday to get ready to generate this week’s mosaic, when I discovered I hadn’t favorited a single photo. Well, in the past I might have shrugged and said, “no big deal.” But this is the new Lisa. This is the Lisa that has committed to sharing links and photos in […]Read More: Weekend Favorites
When Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark asked me to be a part of the blog tour for her Craftsy class, “The Seamless Artemisia Sweater,” I was happy to say yes. As you’ve undoubtedly heard me say before, I love Craftsy classes, and this particular class looked like it had the potential to teach me a few things. As […]Read More: The Seamless Artemisia Sweater
So… I added another 18 hexagons to my blanket last week. (Yay!) I think another two sets of 18, and I’ll be done with the main part of the blanket. That’s exciting, because I can only do the same thing over and over again for so long before I am mentally ready for the next […]Read More: Hexagon blanket progress
So the snow storm came last night, but didn’t treat us too badly here in our little corner of New Jersey. I’d say we didn’t get any more than 10 inches. And I didn’t hear much in the way of wind, either. Whew. You know how I feel about wind. Still, even though we were […]Read More: Last night it snowed. Today it yarned.
