Yeah, So, Um

Now I’m hanging by a thread - Everything Everything – Cough Cough

First 14 mini skeins

Starting a long term project today. One small crocheted granny square every other day for a year. I have 180 mini skeins to use up and I’ll see what I can make with them at the end.

7cm granny square in Madeline Tosh Sock, color: pop rocks

Square one. One hundred and seventy-nine to go.

Tell you what I’m gonna do now

Honey, Shakin’ is the greatest thing

It’s Spring and I’m ready to get back out to my 3-season studio but MAN that space was a mess after a winter of neglect!

I spent all of last weekend rearranging the areas of my studio and cleaning out lots of bits and bobs that I don’t need anymore.

I have my cozy yarn corner where I can sit at my desk when doing the tech work of design and pattern writing and settle down in my comfy chair when making samples. (Not all of the yarn had been put away yet when this one was snapped – it has doubled since!)

And now I have a great sewing space with my sewing machine and serger on their own table, a bureau and cabinets full of fabric and a BIG table for laying out and cutting fabric (again, it hadn’t quite been assembled when this pic was snapped, it occupies that large open space to the left) which also doubles as a great space for blocking crochet and knit pieces.

I have a feeling I’ll be spending LOTS of time out there this year.
