Falling down the rabbit hole of textured crochet

Falling down the rabbit hole of textured crochet

September 23, 2019 by Maire in Hobbies / 1 Comment

There are times when I find myself in that very odd situation where my perceived knowledge on a subject far outweighs my actual experience. You know the feeling, right? You’re merrily knitting away on a vanilla sock while your World of Warcraft character is taking the fifteen-minute flight between Undercity and Iron Summit when another crafty friend sends you a panicked message asking how to interpret a particularly tricky section of lace in the shawl they’re knitting.

Plans for today

Plans for today

January 2, 2018 by Maire in Whimsy, Writing / 0 Comments

Today’s plans? Settling in with a new book, knitting on a sock, and cuddling up under a warm blanket. Long, long ago, I mentioned that the first couple of adult books I remember reading (or at least, remember being caught reading by adults who were probably right in assuming I was too young to be […]

My view from the cheap seats

I write a lot. Oh, I may not write here, but trust me, when I get into a groove I write like a hypergraphic squirrel on cocaine. I generally don’t talk about writing. For me, it’s a lot like fight club. The first rule about write club is you don’t talk about writing.  Most likely because I’m […]

I am a master at procrastination. It’s the reason why this blog is updated so rarely, and probably the reason why the novel I’m working on will be outlined to death. It’s the reason why I haven’t posted any knitting…because after having two weeks of vacation time, the precise amount of knitting done was zero. […]

Hats! I knit them!

Hats! I knit them!

I knit a couple of hats! I actually knit them a while ago, but I was waiting until they landed in Yellowknife with their new owners before I posted anything. You see, one of them is an early birthday present and the other is a belated birthday present. Unfortunately, while I have a picture of […]

Mittens!

Mittens!

December 31, 2015 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

With my love of knit socks, it’s no wonder I’ve gravitated to mittens. I particularly love stranded mittens, but I’ll happily knit away on a pair of cabled or plain mitts as well. Small projects seem to be my forte. While I’ve knit at least one sweater, mostly to prove I could, they’re not my […]

Christmas Knitting 2015

December 29, 2015 by Maire in Hobbies / 0 Comments

I honestly meant to update well before now, but while my intentions were good…my followup was crap. The knitting content has been almost non-existent on the blog for a while, so I will offer up an apology for anyone looking for knitting and finding everything else. My knitting has had a tendency to go in […]
