Did you know @lionbrandyarn Jeans now comes in Cotton? 😮🤩
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just unpacked this box of goodies and CANNOT WAIT to dig in with a project I've been dreaming about since January! Is there a "rubbing my hands in gleeful anticipation" emoji? 😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've added the (affiliate) link to my profile so you can get some of these babies for yourself. What are you waiting for?!

I normally like to find a quiet sunny spot to crochet or even to work on my laptop, but not today. I'll be curled up in this blanket (the 'office' room is ❄️), at my desk, buckling down to make my website compliant to new European privacy laws. Work first, play later, right?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This blanket was made by my father's mother, not the one from whom I shared old knitting notes. She crocheted this huge blanket and the stitches are so tiny, I can't imagine how long this took her! I love that both my grandmothers were so talented, and also sad that I didn't pick up these skills until later in life, too late to truly enjoy it with them. I guess I should start early with my own kids! 😉 #tbt

Happy Hump Wednesday! My Love Triangles Blanket kit from @lionbrandyarn is 20% off this week as we celebrate all things 💛🌻☀️😎Marigold, May's color of the month. Grab the kit with the (affiliate) link up in my profile.☝️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The kit from @lionbrandyarn is for this particular color combo, which works great for summer baby showers, but if Marigold/Mustard is not your jam, scroll through for a few more ideas. You can always find the pattern on my blog so you can make it in any color combination you choose!💜💚💙❤️💛🧡

Just one more photo because I'm in love 😍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't normally do much lace type work, but despite this motif being called the spider stitch (🕷️😶😬🤪 I. Hate. Spiders.), I've admired it for a while and wanted to work it up. Plus, with all those holes, each row works up so fast!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is using the lovely @lionbrandyarn Jeans ❤️

For those of you who asked about this succulent from my stories a while back, it has flowered! And the star-shaped flowers identify it as "Lavender Pebbles", or "Graptopetalum Amethystinum".
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's one of 2 projects I started this weekend, because well, when you're inspired, you just want to start already! Since I'm terrible with finishing and publishing patterns, I scheduled a photoshoot this weekend to force me to finish. So if you need me, I'll be on the couch all week. ☺️

TGIFridaynight! The boys are out camping on an aircraft carrier and I'm looking forward to a quiet night of laundry, dishes, yarn 😂 My husband also left a open bottle of wine on the counter...and it's calling my name 🍷.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My goal tonight is to figure out how to sew up a 5-hole pattern in the straps...gonna have to experiment a bit more. Or maybe just Google it 😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Enjoy your evening guys! 🤗

If I were to give my wips names, this would be the "I hope to finish before Christmas" one!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(And if you see the mistake, I already know, and I'm not frogging it back 🐸) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yarn is @lionbrandyarn Flikka + ZZ Twist

New Post! Remember a while back, I asked if you thought (2) 50g skeins of yarn was enough to make a scarf? Well, turns out it was plenty!💪
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Up on the blog today is the New Paths Shawl, to celebrate my new career path 🎉, as well as the new paths of the friend for whom this was given. This was definitely a figure it out as you go project, in yarn and in life these past few weeks. I love how simply this project worked up, which just a few basic stitches. May life follow art! 😆
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My first week home and on the job has been filled with flu, naps, my husband's birthday, my mom coming to visit, cleaning the office, and finally sitting down to get some blog work done. What a crazy, harrowing, wonderful life! ❤️ I'm gonna chalk it up to "settling in", and give thanks for being able to stay home and experience it all!

After the sketches and the math and the eraser flakes and the frogging... come the best part of the project - sitting down to yarn and hook. It's that feeling of having the open road in front of you and the wind in your hair! ☀️🏎️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now that I'm settling down to business after a bit of flu at home, I'd like your suggestions for tv shows and audio books to keep me company. I like light and easy subjects that don't require a lot of thinking, or make me hungry. 😆 British shows, anything Jane Austen or BBC, get extra points.✨ What's your favorite pass-the-time-while-crocheting audiobook or tv show❓
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And since we're all sharing our faves, I just finished listening to A Wrinkle in Time, narrated by Hope Davis, and 🤩ohmygoodnessitwasamazing🤩🤩 Ms. Davis' voices are calm and terrifying at the same time, and I didn't want it to end!

Hey May! 😎 I can't believe you're here already but I'm glad to see you arrive. Thanks for bringing the sunshine and all my favorite lemony mustardy yarny goodness! 💛☀️🌻These colors make me happy, and so do you! I hope you stay awhile, at least until June decides to come a-knockin'!🌴
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Marigold is the @lionbrandyarn Color of the Month and I think it's a perfect color to complement the start of grand new adventures, don't you? (See last post if you missed the news!👉) I don't know who it was who told me that yellow is a high-stress color, but maybe they were just having an Opposite Day or something 🤷 <- my kids use that as an excuse when they don't want to listen to me. 😆 Yellow, especially the mustard variety, just puts a smile on my face...and sometimes, depending on the mustard, in my belly! 😂

Guess what guys? Today is the last Monday I’m heading into work! I have resigned from my day job and will officially be a full time … blogger, no, small biz owner! 😎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the midst of this transition, I’ve been thinking a lot about our narratives, and why the perception for ‘blog’ is different than for ‘business’ or ‘startup'. If you live a life of any similarity to mine, you know you are far more than bloggers and crocheters and knitters and makers. We are all experts in our craft, we are founders and owners, CEOs, CTOs, CMOs, C-everything-Os. 👊 We control how we interact in our communities, and how we respond to both compliments and criticism..and copyright infringement. 😆 Isn’t it time to take control of our own stories and be everything we want to be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you've wanted to do something, to change something, in perception or in reality, this is a reminder for all of us to see ourselves for all that we’re capable of, all our strengths and our doubts, and all that we’re worth. ❤️💪
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, today is the last Monday before I start on a new journey to write my own story as a small business owner and who knows what else. 🚀 I have a week left of work, but I am already beyond excited for this adventure! It’ll also be interesting to see what I can do with 8+ hours a day to chase my dreams!

Quick question for you on this sunny Friday! What do you do with all your finished projects? Do you sell them, gift them, or stash them away in your house? 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I try to gift most of my creations, mostly because my little house, nestled in the most ridiculous real estate prices in all the land, and my husband, cannot tolerate the build-up of the yarn things.😅
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'd love to hear your stories on sharing and gifting or storage and hoarding, whatever it takes! 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This shawl is a gift for a friend, and I'm working on sharing the pattern with you in the next few days!
