dear blog

January 29, 2010

don’t hold it against me that i’ve abandoned you.
i haven’t really.
i’m just a slacker.

there have been so many secret projects, outings, and general life stuff that, rather than attempt to catch you up with words, how about a picture post?


favorite yarn store in Michigan, woven art

rudest yarn store i’ve ever been to!

Thread Bear


detroit getaway during finals

dinner at slows

the final recital show ever *tear* at the majestic cafe

started a dandy neckerchief (yarn is caper sock by string theory colorway, vert)

turned 25

with the ‘rents ( i love them, they’re so cute right? )

started a top-down sweater in my fave michigan wool (yarn is shepherd’s wool by stonehedge fiber mill in white colorway)

made a swedish-inspired fair isle hat

that was too small unfortunately (yarn is cascade 220 in stratosphere and white colorways)

started some squirrel mittens (ravelry link – yarn is jameison spindrift in pine and burnt umber colorways)


finished my epiphany gift for carla-k, a peaks island hood by isolda teague. i will never make it again, it is a terribly written pattern (work in pat.? which pat?), but i conquered it none the less.
(note: there were actually three of us at the shop working on this at the same time. we all had trouble. but once completed, we ran up and down the aisles singing “peaks island HOOD!”)

now i’m back in classes with this bunch of crazies

and i made this birthday bear hat which should be arriving at its intended destination any minute! (pattern is turn a square by jared flood, yarn is cascade 200 heathers in the chocolate heather colorway and noro silk garden in 293 colorway)

this doesn’t come close to covering all the stuff that i’ve gone through this winter but some stuff is too personal for a blog and this entry is long enough right?

no worries bitches, i’m doing well.
