What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

I call this a "pseudo" yoga pillow because a proper meditation pillow (also called a yoga pillow) should be filled with buckwheat, and (aside from not having several pounds of buckwheat just sitting around) the stitches are a fairly loose and made with a very chunky yarn (which I bought before I thought of this),… Continue reading What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!

What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!

My current mini-project is something I wish I had thought of myself: water bottle holders, to just sling over your shoulder on your way out the door, rather than juggling keys, a handful of other stuff, trying to give the dog a treat, corral my son, AND get my butt out the door while trying… Continue reading What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!

This one is for my mother in law, and like the genius I'm sometimes really not, I completely underestimated how much yarn this would require (those bobble stitches really eat up the yarn!), so this week we're getting more to finish this beauty. I really love the effect of the variegated yarn and how the… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: another bath mat!

What I’m working on: a super cute bralette!

This cute little triangle of yarn is on its way to becoming my first hand-made bralette! I found the pattern here: https://moralefiber.blog/2018/06/13/basic-bralette-tutorial/ and so far it's incredibly easy to follow. I'm intending this solely as an around-the-house sort of item, so I promise you'll never need fear me modeling it on this blog 🙂 I… Continue reading What I’m working on: a super cute bralette!
