Time to take proper photos is becoming a problem. I have at least 3 designs (hat, knit shawl, and crochet shawl) that are completely done with a fully formed pattern. But no pictures. My model lives and hour away and I work 13+ hour days. Frustrating! Hopefully as Spring and Summer approach this kink gets sorted out. Fingers crossed.

I’ve had a few days off from work recently to be engrossed with yarny goodness. Snow days! Didn’t help with her photos because, ya know, snow and all that stuff. But I did get to hang out with my fur babies and get my stitches on. And the kitties were happy to have momma home all day.

I think this blanket officially belongs to Kaya. It’s like she senses I’m taking it out. Lion Brand Natural Wool. I think she likes that faint sheep smell. Plus it’s warm and lofty. She’s got good taste.

Deetz is chillin’ on my current WIP: a blanket crocheted in Lion Brand Scarfie. A little bit of a blanket kick and a little bit of a Lion Brand Yarn kick. Good price for good home dec friendly yarns.

*If you want a small project to try Scarfie, I published a simple free knit hat pattern. You can find it right here on the blog: Go-To Hat.

I think we’re supposed to get another nor’easter coming through next week. As it is we’ve had 3 in the past 2 weeks. I’m done with this. Bring on the beaches. ☀️
