And I finished her gift! I’m so excited! I am going to write up the instructions, which probably have mistakes and will need to be corrected, but for now, I just really need to share the finished project with you! All it needs is a button! It’s so cozy on, perfect for a tank top [...]
Some Day I Will Finish the …
Well, any of the things I’ve started! Haha! I did manage to wrap up that cute little Aestas Top for my kidlet, but then she did her laundry. Silly me, I didn’t pay attention to the care instructions when I gave it to her. Just so you know, Yarn Bee’s Color Idyll yarn is hand [...]
Temperature Blanket April Update!
Okay, I’m a week late. I really fell off the wagon in April and had to scramble to make about 25 squares. Oops. 29 April squares and four May squares Then once I had them made, I sat on them for a few more days before I finally pieced them together. Hmm. It’s not like [...]

Slowest Mom Ever
You might remember a couple of months ago I claimed to be the Best Mom Ever. Haha! I started the top because I wanted something quick and easy, and I wanted to make something for my kid who was feeling a bit ignored. I was making pretty good progress, too, until I was nearly done [...]

2021 Temperature Blanket
We all thought 2020 was weird. 2021 seems to be giving it a run for its money. I’ve seen temperature blankets before, but I haven’t been a fan. Most of them are just rows of a single color, and they span the rainbow. I don’t love the look, and it doesn’t coordinate with any room [...]
Best Mom Ever
I have several big projects going on right now, so I wanted something that would work up quick. I knew I wanted to do this Aestas Top for my daughter, and I thought it might be the something quick I was looking for. The beginning of something beautiful It started off a little rough. I [...]
Ivy League Top, Instructions (WIP)
Last week I wrote a post about my current favorite project, which I named the Ivy League Top since it didn't have a name. I guess it might have a name, but as I explained in the post, I don't read Russian, and that's the language the original pattern is in, which you can find [...]
