Meanwhile, back at crocheting… Year of Projects week 50/52

Another three months have gone by without an update from me. There is definitely a pattern of me getting overwhelmed at work and everything else going to the wayside. Hopefully I'll be able to turn that around and get some better work/life balance going. I'm going to use the upcoming Year of Project new year… Continue reading Meanwhile, back at crocheting… Year of Projects week 50/52

Unexpected FO – Year of Projects Update 34/52

I could have named this post Serial Monogamy as well. For the second week in a row I worked on only one project the entire week, and, like last week it is now a finished object! How very unlike me, but maybe a better strategy in this new world order I'm in of working so… Continue reading Unexpected FO – Year of Projects Update 34/52

Batten Down the Hatches – Year of Projects Update 32/52

Greetings from snowy Massachusetts! It's a lovely day to stay inside and crochet with the fire going and dog snoring on the couch next to me but we are about to go out and trek through the woods.

Happy Sunday, everyone! It was 1.6℉ this morning when I got up, so a good day for a fire in the fireplace and some crochet! Finished Object (FO) Traveling Crochet Afghan It's done!

Welcome, 2021! Year of Projects Update 27/52

Happy New Year, yarnie friends! Do I have anything to say about the year that was? Hmm... I can sum it up by comparing 2019's Ravelry Challenge goal to 2020's: in 2019 I surpassed my goal of 52 finished projects for the year and completed 59, but this is what I have to show for… Continue reading Welcome, 2021!

2020, I’m through with you – Year of Projects week 24/52

Hello, yarnie friends! (Is it yarnie or yarny? I really don't know.) I missed last week's Year of Projects update unfortunately for a good reason -- I broke my arm. So, not surprisingly, I'm going to keep this post short. No interesting story -- I just tripped over my dog. She was excited because I… Continue reading 2020, I’m through with you – Year of Projects week 24/52
