Homemade Hackles

Earlier this month I ran out of ready to spin fiber (quite the tragedy, I know).

Unfortunately, the alpaca fiber I currently have in my stash has been washed... Continue Reading →

Another Shawl

Apparently I'm in the mood for making shawls this year! The latest shawl I made is one of my favorites so far. It's definitely on the more cozy side and something I can see myself wearing more than some of my other projects. I started this project because I had 8 skeins of Shibui Knits... Continue Reading →

As they say pics or it didn't happen¬†so here's some pictures! First step, I needed to get some... Continue Reading →

First Spinning Attempts

I've been playing around with different crochet bags over the past few months and thought I would share the results! I started by looking at a pattern I found on Ravelry (Market Bag) and varied it from there. I've created a couple variations that I'm happy with. Variation 1 - Produce Bag I originally started...
