Another super quick update because I've only really been working on this again. I am making good progress on this still. I've almost finished the first piece.
I'm still working on this and almost nothing else. I am making some pretty good progress on this, though. I've very nearly finished the front.
I've been in a bit of a crochet slump for the past couple weeks, but I wanted to make something new for this week, and I've been wanting to make this mushroom hat for a while, so here we are. I went back to the Mori Beret by Regina Weiss (great pattern, highly recommend). This… Continue reading Mushroom Beret
I did not intend to blog about this two weeks in a row. But, well, that's just how life goes sometimes. This is going to be a bit of a short post because I genuinely didn't do much crafting this week. I did, however, get a little bit done on this top. I think it's… Continue reading WIP: Vilnis Top Part 2
Y'all, I have like six active WIPs, I should not be starting a new one. But Yarn Social's having a Tee Party and I found this pattern and it's so swoopy and fun and I had to. I had to.

And I'm glad I did, because I just love looking at it. I… Continue reading Birds of Paradise Shawl
It's been a while since I've talked about this one. This has been in the "I'll get back to this eventually" pile for a while, but for the past few weeks, it's been my personal project of choice. At this point, I'm only a few rows away from finishing this, and I am really excited… Continue reading WIP: Birds of Paradise Shawl Part 2
Who's this friend? Okay, some backstory. I am a software engineer. That's my day job. In my day job, I use GitHub, a code hosting platform with an excellent version control system, on a daily basis. And GitHub has a very cute mascot by the name of Octocat. So naturally, one of the suggestions I… Continue reading Octocat
Now that all the pride octopi have been re-listed, I wanted to take some time to talk about some of what goes into the design process for these little guys and why some of them took so much longer than others to complete. Full disclosure, I won't be talking about the shape of the octopi… Continue reading Color Choice, Design, and all that Jazz
