The Accidental Luddite

So, exciting things.

1) I got a loom! It’s gigantic and I have no idea how to put it together! So while I wait for the instruction book to arrive from the good people at Harrisville Designs

2) Shoebox loom! I found instructions for making one at this site, and got help from the lovely ladies at Bella Yarns. So much fun and OH so fast. I’ve already got 1.5 scarves done!


I think this project will be super exciting to do with my students next year. Hopefully I’ll get to co-teach a fiber arts class, and this would be an exciting first project.


Baby hats!

Whipped off a baby hat yesterday. White, blue, green, yellow dishcloth cotton, Sugar and Crream, crocheted, very cute. My old babysitter is having a baby of her own! Awwww. Crocheting baby hats is entirely too much fun.

To do for this weekend

Ali Herlihy inspired me to make a list for the weekend:

1. Sort stash (untangle, ball up, sort by fiber)

2. Read articles and layout presentation for next week’s class

3. Make an alpaca cowl

4. Finish sock 2 to send to Mumsie

5. Take pictures to make this blog look pretty!

6. Clean the kitchen

Another crafting blog…

Greetings, friends!  I haven’t had a personal blog in a while, so it might take me a while to get back into it.  I needed a place to post pictures of crafts, sketches, short essays, stories, and little blurbs about life.  Mostly crafts.  Where patterns exist, I will link to them.  Where they are created by me, I will post a PDF.

Current projects in progress:

*Toe-up socks for Mumsie

Future projects:

*Crocheted Nalgene cozies (small and large)

*Wire bracelets and earrings

*More toe-up socks!

So… I went yarn crazy over Christmas break at Bella Yarns in Warren, RI. Not only did I get a lovely copy of Charmed Knits (the Harry Potter knitting book) but I got tons and tons of alpaca! And bought some yarn from my friend Rachely!

Pictures to come…
