gifted, 11.9

I made some fingerless bicycling mitts for a friend in a gorgeous pumpkin-ish colorway as a thank you. Crocheted up in a tube, I used the soft as butter and general favorite fiber (of mine!) Malabrigo Merino Worsted for these and I’m fairly pleased with the results. Maybe I can convince the recipient to modelContinue reading “gifted, 11.9”

dawn’s peasy, 9.28

A Presto Chango Cardigan for Dawn’s new bundle, in a gorgeous Alpaca wool in a turquoise blue.

Derek “Devo” G. and I, circa Christmas 2007, New York. Can I please wax poetic of the brilliance of one of my closest friends? Call thy Derek M. Guillemette, affectionately known at times as D-Rock, or perchaps the all-time favorite and sticker, Devo. Today I came home to find a giant package sitting in myContinue reading “Wow…you’ve got a mighty big package, there…?”

“Nose, Nose, Nose Nose! And who have thee that jolly red nose? Cinnamon and Ginger, Nutmegs and Cloves, And that, gave me my jolly red nose”

Yesterday, my cohort and I had an afternoon of craft-up and flick watching, and while finishing off some cabled fingerless mitts I’ve been neglecting for some time, I also decided to whip up a loaf of my by now famous Cinnamon Toast for Laura’s roommate Ashley, whose birthday is today. It made my entire apartmentContinue reading ““Nose, Nose, Nose Nose! And who have thee that jolly red nose? Cinnamon and Ginger, Nutmegs and Cloves, And that, gave me my jolly red nose””
