Hi all,

In this episode we talk about a fun cowl I'm knitting and all the Autumn craft plans (see the shownotes for lots of inspiring links). I also give some discussion and thoughts around the great fall home purge of 2021 happening at my house. Come have a listen.

Hi all

This episode we talk about a handful of finished objects, some utter WIP fails, one bright spot WIP and wonder where my concentration as has gone. I also give a trip wrap up and maybe shed a tear, maybe.

This week we talk about two finished objects (so excited!). A garment for me and a garment for kiddo! I have a WIP I'm focusing on. We chat about some clothing places I've tried for the first time and what my experience was (a couple of duds and one hearty recommendation).

Hi All,

Perhaps the title is a misnomer - but I've got some finished weaving objects and some lessons learned thast are helpful and that I'm still trying to figure out. I've got a little knitting and sewing on WIP and by popular request a top ten of the crafting and other entertaining audio and video shows I use while crafting.

Hi all - this week we talk about several WIPS, the carthesis of cleaning my craft room and cleaning up/clearing out "obligations" that just aren't actually "obligations". Refreshing. Come have a listen.

Hi all - In this episode I talk about a finished object (outside of my usual crafting! and it was fun!). We talk about my endless obligatory WIPS, a new sweater and how to stop shoulding all over my crafting - when will I learn?

Do you think I need an oxford comma there? Yeah, overthinking! In any case - thanks for checking out this episode. I've got a bit of knitting and sewing and a hell of a lot of things on my mind.

Hi all 

Happy New Dumpster Fire! In this episode we talk about several WIPs, my need to diversity what's on hand to craft and some deep thoughts around positivity and figuring out some lies I've long held about myself as truths. And how that's not been helpful and how I'm trying to change that.

One more episode before the new year because why not? We talk about a few FOs and WIPs, positively obscene glorying in only having TWO long standing WIPS left in my house, seeing what Santa brought me, and doing the 2020 year tally and planification check in as well as some 2021 planification.

Hiya,

In this episode we chat about frankly a staggering number of finished objects, some remaining WIPs, my conquering my holiday gift list, how different sock yarns have worn and why journaling is worthwhile (even when I don't do it).

Hi folks,

This episode I wax poetically about my newfound love for rigid heddle weaving, still sock knitting and cable knitting as well. We also get into a little bit of it being ok to have ennui. 2020's word is ennui. And really - that's ok. I keep crafting to carve out little bits of joy and stay present.

Hi and welcome!

In this episode we chat about a finished object that merits a loud "FINALLY!" and several new fun cast ons. And my newfound love for a new to me nerdy hobby.

Hi all,

In this episode we talk about a new crafting toy, a fun and finished test knit, some truly ghastly sewing fails and revisit the master Languish Anguish list - where I fairly brutally decide it's froggy time.

Hi there,

In this episode, we talk about many more finished objects :) a few WIPs and some deep thoughts about my stash (which I love) but what I wish I would have known as a newer knitter building that stash, which would make it even more loveable :)

Hi there - in this episode we chat about so.many.finished objects, how my 2020 planification is going and my thoughts on the dumpster fire that was June 2020 both within and without our crafting community.

Hi there,

I feel like only a crafter undertands why the "finishing" comes before the "starting" in my title ;) So many things you guys! My mojo is back! And I'm so excited. Things for heads, necks and bodies. Come have a listen.

I visited the WIP closet y'all and it was more fun than I thought it would be. As the seasons change, so does my on deck. Come have a listen and start dreaming with me of all the warm weather goodness we all want to make!

HI all,

In this episode, we talk about how I'm so close to sweater-doneness, how long a current WIP that's unworked is still a current WIP ;), the controversial facemasks (not the controversy - just the mask making!), and how I'm keeping busy in this bizarro time of ours. Stay safe everyone!
