not just crochet:: how i spent a fall weekend

Because I am a homeowner, of course I spent much of the weekend fixing stuff. Stuff like cleaning the garage & gluing broken crap & vacuum maintenance.

Because duh, that’s most weekends. Amirite?!

BUT, because I am awesome at being a hermit and never leave my house, I was also able to finish up a few more desirable projects too.

My C~A~L socks are done & entered in the drawing for loads of squishy, pretty yarn…


My ivy has been hung successfully…

it took 2 tries because I am pitiful at measuring sometimes 



Alex’s girlfriend brought over these 2 for a play-date…PRECIOUS!


Drumroll please…

I finished a spice rack up-cycling friggin masterpiece…


Thank you to Martha for the donated old spice rack! My buttons are so OCD happy now😃

Thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: meandering through a day off

Labor Day in the USA…

it’s way too hot & muggy to enjoy the outdoors…

a good excuse for me to crochet the day away…


I’ve just finished a Husker scarf, almost done with a pair of C~A~L socks, then to complete a plant hanger for the ivy I recently bought…


But first, my lap must be overtaken by a cat…


thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: a tiny (p)update

This little guy is too entirely cute not to show you what he looks like in his yoda hat.


Told you, I did😉

crochet:: pinafore feedback

Since I’ve gotten such great feedback recently, I’ve just got to share more.

Joanne found pictures of my toddler pinafore, which led her here.

She was gracious and sent me WiP photo :)


Nice job Joanne ~ and thank you so very much for sharing.

Thanks for stopping by!

crochet:: i love feedback

The other day I received a lovely email from Kim T.

She had taken one of my projects from way back when, and ran with it.

Check out the AWESOME pug mobile she conjured up!

Pug Mobile #1

Look!  Just look at the adorable little pugs!!

Pug Mobile#2

Nice work Kim :) And a special thank you for sharing it with me.

Have a ridiculously amazing day!

crochet:: rainbow granny rug 2.0

So waaaaayyy back when I started this little bloggity adventure many moons ago, I shared my rainbow granny rug. I made it to warm up my pitiful little laundry room.

It was looking pretty rough lately, so I gave it a big ole reboot.

I recycled about 90% of the yarn, added a little more, and reversed the colors.


What’s old, is new again.

Happy hooking!


crochet:: tiny yoda pup hat

Hey there, hi there, ho there… I’ve been without wifi for ages. OK, not really ages, but it sure feels that way. And I got a new job, and well, you know…summer…

A friend requested a yoda hat for this little guy.

Not that he really needs any help in the ear department😃

So I sat down to play with some shimmery yoda-esque colored acrylic yarn last night…

For some reason, I can’t con the cats into modeling for me…

I’m giving a whirl with posting from my mobile, just because.  What do you think?
