This fall, my closest work friend found a new job. It was a great move for her, but it’s hard to go from seeing someone every week and talking all the time to not seeing them very often at all. I wanted to make her a going-away gift that would—hopefully—remind her of me while being squishy soft. Kelsey is a very cool dresser and I hope that the Clapo-Ktus in this beautiful red was a welcome addition to her wardrobe.Read More
October was a big month at the Fidgety household. School kicked into gear. Work ramped up. Oh, and Fidgety Husband and I took a long-awaited trip overseas, just the two of us*. My sweetie and I spent 10 days visiting Wales, England and Iceland and it was wonderful. We haven’t traveled alone for more than a weekend since the kids were born and it was weird to have all this time to ourselves. But is was an amazing trip where we got to see and eat new things. (I posted a lot of photos of our trip over on my Instagram account if you’d like to take a look).Read More
Okay ladies and gentlemen. I have beautiful yarn I purchased during the 2016 Yarn Shop Hop. I purchased these two skeins specifically to go together. I’ve always been drawn to the patterns where there is a neutral gray paired with a colorful yarn that shifts as it’s knit. When I purchased these yarns, the hope was to find a beautiful shawl pattern to do just that. So I’m looking for some suggestions:
I’m making the super adorable Leaf Blanket for a friend. Well, eventually for three different friends who are all due at about the same time. So I stopped by one of my favorite yarn stores to see what good superwash wool I could find in pretty greens. I decided on cost vs. softness to go with Cascade 128. I love Cascade and this is a super soft yarn. But I can’t get gauge.
