Took a trip to my local yarn store for the first time today and I will definitely be back! I stayed modest and only left with 2 skeins, but I definitely see a spending spree in the near future.
Do you have a local yarn shop near you? I’d love to hear your experiences!

I caved to the man. Here’s my #bestnine for the colorful year that is 2017. .
I’m honestly surprised by most of these. Anyways, thanks to everyone who willingly stuck around with me this year 💕

After a crazy yarn filled couple of weeks, things are starting to cool down over here. I’m still working my little corpse fingers, but not completely to the bone, there’s still a little bit of flesh hanging on now. Hope everyone has/is having/had a lovely Sunday 💕

These two things right here pretty much sum up my last week. Because who needs human interaction? Happiest of Fridays to you all 💙

The holiday season is in full swing, so of course this is when I run out of thank you notes and spend time I should be working on orders on replenishing my stack...but it’s all good. It’s not like I’m stressing out or anything. I’m Calm as a something that’s a symbol of calm, baby, that’s me 😐
Honestly, though, after I run out of these bad boys, I’m ordering precut notecards 🤭

As some of you may already know, I’m absolutely heartbroken to say that we lost Polo last week. He became extremely weak and ill very suddenly and was taken to an Emergency center where we were told he had a cancerous tumor on his heart that had begun to bleed. This particular cancer, they said, is so tricky because there are no symptoms until it’s too late, and it happens within hours.
He was the most amazing creature I’ve ever encountered. We had him 5 of his 7 years and he showed nothing but love through every one of them. He was my knitting buddy, my walking partner, and, though the title wasn’t official, he very much acted as a therapy dog. He knew when my anxiety was coming on and he’d plop right next to me and stay put until I was okay. He was truly a special soul and ultimately, he went out doing his favorite thing: sleeping, snuggled up under a blanket.

We’re on Day 2 of #meetthemakerweek and I already forgot about it 😬 Today’s prompt is What, as in what do you make. Anything you can make with yarn, I’m down. Primarily I guess I’m a beanie gal, but I’m certainly not picky.
(This is an old photo that I rely way too heavily on when I have nothing to post, but it actually matched really well for the prompt)

Face. Yarn. I’m taking part in @joannehawker’s #meetthemakerweek challenge (shout out to @moloneymakes from whose post I first heard about this) 🙋🏻‍♀️ Day 1: Who — I re-re-reintroduced myself not that long ago, so I’ll shorten this up. .
I’m Nicole and this is my author pose. I’m a very-close-to-22 year old hailing from Pennsylvania and the person behind this. I’ve been knitting & crocheting for about 5 years and I guess I kinda like it 😏 I also like dogs, tea, horror movies, sweaters, music, baking but not cooking, and puns 👌🏻 Also, don’t judge my stash, it is in desperate need of replenishment. #meetthemaker

Happy #smallbusinesssaturday folks! Here’s a collection of a few of my favorite things (I’m coming for you Julie Andrews) from other small bizzes (?) that I’ve accumulated during the year. Swipe to see closeups 👈🏻 And go check all of these fabulous gals’ out!
• the most delicious tea from @teaforthreenyc • adorable pins: super magical unicorn from @fourletterwordcards & succulent tea cup from @teathoughts (the bag too!)
• an amaaazing beanie pattern from @theknitteddingo • a gorgeous hank of naturally dyed yarn from @yarnandthyme

The somewhat less glamorous side of making 😕 Staying up all night to wrap orders for tomorrow morning post, and my desk is looking a sizzlin’ hot mess. At least sleep isn’t a totally necessary part of life to have base level brain functions 👍🏻

2 more of these 🐱 and then they’re off to the magical land of Post! .
ALSO! I’m having a sale this week that I may have forgotten about, 15% off everything. Totally rocking this marketing thing 👊🏻

Another successful, coupon fueled yarn haul 👌🏻 I stocked up preeettty well today, so hopefully I won’t have to leave the house again for a couple of weeks!
