Sun ‘n Spin

Ah Sunflower, weary of time, Who countest the steps of the sun; Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveller’s joyrney is done; Where the Youth pined away with desire, And the pale virgin shrouded in snow, Arise from their graves, and aspire Where my Sunflower wishes to go! ~ William Blake ~ Hey,…

The Manimal is a suit-and-tie kinda guy (or as we prefer to say: he’s the Greg to my Dharma), so when I stumbled upon a free pattern for a seed-stitch tie, I just couldn’t pass it up! Nor could I pass up the opportunity to use this yarn – a lovely Malabrigo Dos Tierras color…

Kitty Lovey

I have been so crazy busy this year, with work and life and everything else, that I haven’t had much time for knitting.  The Manimal’s oldest and bestest friend (whom I refer to as Lil’ Fella, because he’s so much shorter than my tall, lanky manbeast) had a baby mid-November, and I finally had an…

The Shiny

This was my second weaving attempt.  I actually made this as an X-mas gift last year for Friend Bill (whose legal name is Melissa but whom I call Bill for reasons that would take too long to explain here).  She actually still likes this and wears it around in public, so I guess that’s alright. …

Space Bog

Le Mumz and the Manimal are very different people, but they have one huge similarity: they are both extremely single-minded, and once they decide to do something, they do the shit out of it.  She’s a crafting fiend and will come in hella handy in a post-apocalyptic scenario – for clothing and such, at any…
