WINTER SUCKS!

WINTER SUCKS!

Winter sucks. It sucks. I hate it. Yeah, whatever. I live in the south. We aren't made for snow. Never have been. Never will be. I've not been a southerner my entire life but after 7 years in this glorious place, I can officially say I'm a southerner. This last week we got our annual [...]

Focus on Fair Isle

Focus on Fair Isle

This winter I am focusing on one technique that I really want to hone in. Fair Isle. I've finished a hat, which rekindled my love of the technique. Next I need to actually get to knitting a sweater. A task I've only completed once or twice before. Which I loved, but it is quite the [...]

On Writing A Book

On Writing A Book

When I sat down to write the first words of my new book, I went blank. As blank as blank can get. The page looked at me with monstrous intentions. It taunted me. Mocked me. For a week it stared at me, daring me to put one word on the page. Knowing that one word [...]

Crochet is Weird!

Crochet is Weird!

Crochet is weird. There I said it. It really is weird though. Think about it. We stack little knots on top of each other to make something out of string. We use a stick and a bit of string to make something beautiful. Sometimes strange but all the same, beautiful. I often wonder what I [...]

A Year In Review-ish

A Year In Review-ish

This year has been something of a roller coaster. From losing my mother in law this time last year, to gaining an extra mouth to feed, filming a craftsy class, writing a book, and designing full time...I think I am just now seeing the trees through the forest. Is that how the saying goes? Anyways, [...]

Socks…every which way but loose!

Socks…every which way but loose!

Most, if not all, of you know that I am a bit obsessed with Crochet Socks. It's not my fault, really. I am a crochet sock evangelist. It is in my blood. These past two weeks I started a few college classes and I fell everyone about crochet socks. Everyone. I think I might become known [...]

New Pattern…and a Couple of Kits!

New Pattern…and a Couple of Kits!

One in a while we designers have to admit a big secret... We didn't get it right the first time. Or at least, we could have done it a touch better. That's how I've always felt about my Candied Crossbones socks. While they've been the most popular crochet sock pattern I've designed, to date, a [...]

Simple Mornings and Daylilies

Simple Mornings and Daylilies

“I paint flowers so they will not die. I hope the leaving is joyful; and I hope never to return. Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly? I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best. I never paint dreams or [...]

Apple Pie Buckwheat Waffles

Apple Pie Buckwheat Waffles

Written by Rohn Strong Buckwheat waffles are one of the few things I remember my father loving. He would rave over buckwheat pancakes and talk about how much 'better' they were than the regular bisquick pancakes I grew up on. These aint no bisquick pancakes...these are some gourmet waffles right here. Yesterday while getting ready [...]
