The flowers are continuing to bloom – hoping we can keep them going until fall! And that’s how my garden grows 🙂
My story today starts, as my stories often do, with yarn. I recently bought a Dinosaur Eggs: A Study miniskein set from Yarnaceous Fibers, whose dinosaur and geology themed asthetic I enjoy. Along with my cool yarn, she sent me a lovely little stitch marker and a little packet of Tazo herbal tea. The tea… Continue reading Tea for Two: Tazo Forager Edition
My Half the Knit Sky shawl is coming along pretty well! There are about 40 – 50 rows left, though of course they are all long ones 🙂 I am really enjoying this project – just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it’s not insanely complicated.
They are done! I managed to use up pretty much all of both mini-skein sets, and quite a bit of the charcoal yarn, so that is a help to my sad attempts at stash reduction.

I have been knitting away, but it all looks kind of like it did the last time I took pictures – there’s just more of it now 🙂 So time for an update on the plants! It’s a little hard to see, but the avocado has spouted a stem with some tiny little leaves on… Continue reading Plant Update

The star stitches were new,… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
My scrappy mismatch Christmas socks are proceeding along. After the charcoal stripe I’m currently working on, I have two more miniskein stripes for each sock and a charcoal between them. So not much further to go! How are your projects (crafty or not) going?
