One Times Three is the Loneliest Number

Claw likes the KPPPM sock best. Good taste, kittycat. Three lovely, lonely socks without mates. Front to back, we have Regia Cotton Surf Colors in Pacific, my very first completed adult human sock in KPPPM, and Regia Cotton Color in 5433 (Delft). I love every single one of these socks more than I love all […]

Step Away from the Sock Yarn

Sock Yarn Stash Acquisition Syndrome strikes again. I really want to buy two 100g balls of the Regia Cotton Tip and Top in 4083 and 4086. Really really really. I had them in my shopping cart with a ball of Regia Cotton Surf (the purple one, mm) and I made myself close the window. I […]

CaW or How jess Learned to Crochet at Work

[camera phone picture, so sorry!] This morning, I loaded up the tank in my brand-new fulled crochet tote bag along with my normal stuff. I decided not to go home for lunch or to go out to lunch with the guys and instead I heated something up in the microwave. While waiting for it to […]

WiP Oops

I didn’t realize until I read Deneen’s latest that today is Wednesday which means WiP Wednesday. I do not even want to think about it. I have three socks that need mates (Koigu, Regia cotton surf colors, Regia cotton) two cotton sweaters in the works (the tank and the cap-sleeved) two doilies in the works […]

One More Week! (or jess goes add)

There’s just over a week until sheep and wool! I have a little list right next to one of my monitors at work of the things I am looking for. While I know it’s a sheep and wool festival, I do have flax top on the list. And lots of wool. And a few wheel […]

Crochet in Public

I remembered that I had to get my car safety inspected before the end of the month today, so I left for lunch a little earlier and drove to the gas station near my house. They were busy, so I continued onto my house. I grabbed the tank top in progress, three balls of yarn, […]

Tank Started

I started the tank last night. I’m working it in the round from the bottom up and it’s going to be about mid to high hip length. Mostly lilac with contrast stripes in green and possibly orange. If it comes out (I am attempting some interesting waist shaping with different sized hooks and a few […]

Dumb Luck

Back when I decided to make this sweater, I decided upon TLC Cotton Plus and LB Cotton-Ease. I wasn’t sure how sweater-making was going to go. I wanted something durable and lightweight and inexpensive, and they fit the bill. I ordered from Knitting Warehouse because they had the best prices. After hearing today that the […]

What? Discontinued?

I just read that LB is discontinuing Cotton-Ease! JoAnn’s apparently has it on clearance. Clearance. Clearance? Hmmm… [it's not on clearance on their website, however!] I realize that I am not supposed to be buying any more yarn until S+W. I realize this, I do. But if it’s that cheap, I should pick up an […]

Today — er, Yesterday’s Cool Things

We had my mom/siblings and my mil/bil+his wife over for dinner tonight last night. It was somewhat of a birthday dinner thing since my youngest sister, my mom, DH, and I all had birthdays last week. Crochet-related — I made my mom the rose pouf from this bimonth’s Crochet Me. I think she liked it!
