Working on a pair of socks for Christmas and using up one of my skeins of handdyed that didn’t sell. Ha! You fools! It is AWESOME! I love it so much. Variegated yarn rocks. I don’t think I could ever knit with a solid color yarn. It just [...]

So, I finally finished picking off all the tiny scraps of paper on the back of the quilt top. That was the hard part. The actual basting, quilting, and binding were a piece of cake.
I had actually sewed all of the squares together a long time ago, probably circa 2004. [...]
Spider! from juicysauce on Vimeo.
A couple of days ago, I decided to knit Travis a fully realistic, to scale model of a spider. In the interest of science, you know. Here’s what I came up with.
It’s somewhat amazing how accurate I managed to make it. You may notice that, unlike most spiders, [...]
It’s been a while since I last posted – it didn’t seem that long, but I think I just got caught up in the annual flurry of Christmas knitting that happens (Must… knit… SOCKS!!!). I’ve been on a mini-hiatus of sorts from the shop, because I’ve been in really productive mode lately (re: knitting [...]
So here’s some insanely bright mohair yarn that I dyed.
I think I shall name this yarn “OMG! MOHAIR! KITTENZ! RAAAAINBOW POOPS!’ Or something like that. The weather has been nice the past week, so I’ve gotten a bunch of dyeing done. I should have a shop update sometime later [...]
I bought some Mexican cocoa tea stuff at Whole Foods a while back. I didn’t realize it had anise in it. I’ve tried it both hot and cold now, and it still tastes foul to me. I think I’m just going to pitch the rest of it. What is wrong with [...]
I’ve finally shaken off the malaise that I’ve had since coming home from vacation and am back to doing crafty things. It’s been nice. This morning I dyed some yarn for the shop, which has been neglected for the past month. Don’t be sad, little Etsy shop! I will soon refill [...]
So, I actually did finish that hat from the other day. It’s a bit small, though, so I may just wear it on really cold days when I want my head smashed together. I started knitting Bela a sweater today, too. We bought one for her at Petsmart when we were on [...]
No shit! I honestly haven’t felt much like knitting stuff for the past few months, for whatever reason. I don’t know. I thought that when I went on vacation, I would spend a bunch of time hanging out at a campfire, knitting stuff, but that didn’t really happen either because A. [...]
Travis and I took our semi-annual trip down to Cincinnati to go to Ikea and Jungle Jim’s. We hit Ikea first. Our main goal was to get a new mattress, since our old one had this impossibly deep crater in it. Ikea Online had a mattress-picking tool that I filled out the [...]
