My sister made me these incredible 10-inch peyote stitch beaded earrings. Aren’t they to die for? I wish I had more fancy dress places to wear them. More beading (of mine) here.
As most of my friends know, I’m kind of a book slut. I spend too much time getting lost in a book and so it made perfect sense that my Mum gift me this glorious “What I Read” journal, which she picked up on a recent trip to Minnesota. The book is sweet and simple;Continue reading “gifted to me: reading log.”
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”
A Presto Chango Cardigan for Dawn’s new bundle, in a gorgeous Alpaca wool in a turquoise blue. This is the third Presto I’ve made–I think the fully removable front panel is perfect for a Mum struggling with many over the head clothes. If you’re looking for a baby knit that looks fancier than the workContinue reading “dawn’s peasy, 9.28”

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…?”
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””
