Finished Object Friday - Princess Plume

I got this one done this summer when I finally cracked open my Twisted Fiber Arts Evolution skein in July.  The yarn was a gorgeous pink to purple with a lovely reddish tinge in between.  The color was called 12 Princesses after the Grimm's Fairy Tale.

I wanted to make a hat that had some nice work but would show off the color evolution so I picked Plumeable because I liked the little lace pattern but it wouldn't take away from the color changes.

See all the pretty colors?
I currently wear the hat in equal rotation with some other hats I have made or have been gifted.  Though the the colors on this one do brighten the dull gray days.

A New Beginning

Well hello there.  I feel as though I almost have to re-introduce myself since I haven't posted 4 months.  Really it's not you, my lovely readers, it's me.  I have wanted to post a couple times but I wanted to do a re-cap post and that thought was daunting.  Also, I have these fleeting moments where I need to post things but get swept away my work and life.  Anyway, I am using the new(ish) year to start with a clean slate and new beginning.

Hello there!
So no time like the present right?  It's time to stop making excuses and get back to what I enjoy which is sharing with all of you.

Really this hobby is a bit cathartic, I can write out what's going on and just let it go into the world and off of my shoulders.  I have missed that and hope to find a better time to incorporate this into my week.

So what has been going on in my life over the last few months?  Well lots of love and laughter that is for sure.


Joe went to Atlanta for work and brought me back a magnet from the Georgia Aquarium.  This cute little sea otter keeps an eye on me at work.

I was also celebrating new beginnings with Jenn's Bridal Shower.  Her aunt and mom did a lot of the work to design the decor and decorate.  They did such a beautiful job.

Don't forget the Bachlorette party!

Of course you need a selfie!


October ushered in more exciting things including Hockey Games,

 Jenn and Ryan's Wedding,

and Halloween.
Pebbles and BamBam!


There was some general laziness after the weeks of hectic crazy running and before the holiday season ramped up.

And a bit of pampering


Lots of baking and prepping for the Christmas Holidays

So I hope that fills you in on some of the big and little things the past few months.  Can't wait to show you more.  Also, what you don't see is about 5 finished objects to brag about.  Stay tuned

WIP Wednesday - Borders

Hello everyone I only have time for a quick post today but I do have a nice and juicy project update for you all.

Today is really dreary and I have on my Shapely Boyfriend Cardigan to keep me warm at work.  I would rather have a hug from my real boyfriend though.  

Warm Sweater

Half way done with the border
I am so in love with this blanket.  It has kept me warm as the summer nights cool when I have been working on this blanket.  I am considering backing the blanket because of all of my weaved in ends but I probably won't do that.

I bound off each side with a size 9 needle to give the edge some give and I think it will square up nicely once the other two sides are on.  Hope to pick up all of the stitches tonight.

That's it for this week.
