Hello!! πŸ‘‹πŸ»I've shared a little more of my work space in stories for those of you who wanted to see more. I'm sorry my Sunday snap πŸ“·was a let down....a lousy work bench and a couple of consoles wasn't very inspiring πŸ˜‚It really is a work in progress, but it's starting to feel like home. Oh and here's the front of my cardigan! Happy Granny Square day!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰#tropeacardigan #weareknitters the painting is Celeste by @kyahwilson_art πŸ’“

Some real talk today.

Yesterday was hard. If you caught my stories you know that we had some pretty epic "terrible two" meltdowns from our youngest. And be we, I mean me because hubs was at work all afternoon/night. Couple the meltdowns with a baseball practice and a playground filled with fire ants (and the resulting ants covering my daughter's shoes and biting her legs ALL OVER) and the afternoon rolled into an even more terrible evening. And I may or may not have cried the entire drive home from frustration and disappointment in myself and how I managed the melt downs. Not my finest hour(s).
.
So needless to say once everyone was tucked into bed, and I poured a beer and cut a giant piece of left over Birthday cake....I wasn't focused on being productive.
.
Today I'm recovering from what feels like a hangover in my heart, and trying to give myself grace, and learn from my mistakes. And play catch up on the productivity front.
.
If you made it this far - you rock, and thank you. For all you mamas out there - I know I'm not the only one who has days like yesterday. And I know they aren't easy to talk about or admit because who wants to air their dirty laundry in a space that is supposed to be filled with pretty pictures of perfect lives: but know you are NOT alone. And I'm here for you all πŸ’•. We got this πŸ™Œ

Working on some back-to-school themed amigurumi this week! Still need an apple, strawberry milk, some crayons and I'll call it complete. =) #amigurumi #crochet #xmangorose #backtoschool #milk #pencil #yarn #playfood #amigurumilove #amigurumitoy #yarnaddict #crochetaddict #ilovecrochet #crochethook #cookies #iloveyarn #handmade #handcrafted #crochetersofinstagram

I'm looking ahead to next year and thinking about the way my definition of knit style continues to evolve. I am such a minimalist with style that I often struggle with the feeling that I need to be more adventurous or crazy with my designs, but the truth is... I really do just love minimal, intentional, effortless style. I like crisp lines and texture and natural fibers. Every time I start to struggle with a design, I begin stripping away components until it's down to the essentials and that's where I find the sweet spot. The philosophy "Less is More" always seems to work for me (except when it comes to yarn...πŸ˜‚) It's easy (for me) to make things too complicated, but what always works best is to strip away the excess and stay focused on the essentials. I need to remember this not only for my design work, but also for life. πŸ‘Œ

Fading... Never has there been a truer statement πŸ˜‚ Just added in that Golden Snitch. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I usually make up my mind a few weeks after something is done or happens though. πŸ˜…

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of @StarWars, one small town in the UK knit and crocheted amigurumi, life-sized characters, plant holders, yarn bombs and more! Read about it on KnitHacker today ... πŸ€“πŸ€“πŸ€“ #c3p0 #r2d2 #starwars #bathplace #yarnbomb #art #streetart #artlife #instaart #iloveyarn #instayarn #yarnlove #yarngasm #yarnstagram #handmade #diy #yarnaddict #yarnart #fiberart #crochet #crochetlove #crochetersofinstagram #knit #knitting #knittersofinstagram #yarnbomb #yarnbombing #instaknit #instacrochet #tricot

If you've got a spare few minutes* and some leftover yarn, then find the free pattern to hook up this cute starfish and his squid friend over on my blog.
*I have no spare minutes. I am, instead recovering on the sofa after an EPIC school uniform battle at the shops. We must have tried on a bazillion pairs of trousers before finally finding some which fitted 😬AND I still have the school shoes saga to deal with next week. 😩😩
Send tea.

Winter is coming. Why the hell did I decide to take the black? πŸ–€πŸ˜œ#knitdiaries #handdesign #instaknit

The morning I snapped these photos it felt like a cool September morning. This cowl is warm & cozy (of course). Hope my brother likes the set, since I was supposed to make since last winter πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ .

Some more lovelies for the upcoming shop update. A choco-licious brown with ruddy undertones πŸ«πŸ«πŸ«πŸ˜‹

A good night to crochet. #crochet #afghanWIP #iloveyarn

Blanket I made for my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding last weekend!😍 #crochetersofinstagram #beautifulshells #iloveyarn #wedding #crochetismysuperpower

I am LOVING this #shinyhappycotton by @woolandthegang πŸ’ž#WIP #workinprogress ➰#peruviancotton in the colors #nudepink & #whitenoise πŸ’“#yarnheaven #yarnlove πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I had a chance to go to a #localyarnshop while I was in Minnesota! β™₯
❣️
I went to @theyarnery in St. Paul and I was impressed with the selection of fine goods and the super friendly staff πŸ˜„ Apparently they have the biggest selection of @malabrigoyarn worsted in the US! They literally have every single colorway 😍😍😍
❣️
They carry other fine yarn brands too, including their in house line called Pop Yarns! β™₯ I purchased two skeins of #sockyarn, from Pop Yarns and Malabrigo. They're both soooooo squishy and awesome πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—
❣️
If you're ever in the #twincities, you should definitely check it out 😎 It's nice to know I'll have a great local shop when I move there next year! And for when I go back in December πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

Working on these scraves. I started them in the spring and then stuffed them into a bag and forgot about them. These are two noro keyhole scarves... two at a time, kinda like socks right?

Just finished my first test knit, and it was a really wonderful experience! Such a fun pattern. This is just one of the really beautiful pieces for @abbyeknits #clocheknits collection!

Stocking the shop with #slouchybeanies sometime next week. Aiming for the 23rd. Have I ever mentioned that tweed yarn gives me a crafty boner? Because it does. Ask me how big of a boner this #neonfleck yarn is giving me. Go on, ask.
