My red, white, and blue version of the Shooting Star scarf is finished! All in all it took me about a week to make, so it’s a pretty quick project. It uses roughly a single skein’s worth of fingering weight yarn, and is a great way to use up either scraps or a miniskein bundle.… Continue reading Firework Shooting Star Done!

This is one of the nearby towns we are thinking about as a potential place to move, so we were there to see the sights, but also just to sort of scope out the town.

The western side of Lake Winnebago is… Continue reading Adventures in Dairyland

So I’ve basically decided that I’m going to treat it like a marathon and not a sprint. It will get… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
I actually visited this shop a week or so ago but just hadn’t gotten around to posting about it until now. Fibre is a great yarn shop in the nearby town of Neenah. They have a fantastic variety of yarns, books, and notions. The yarns are arranged by fiber type – a section each for… Continue reading Fibre – Yarn Shop Visit!
