It’s a Tiger! {The Reading List}

its a tiger david larochelle

In this house, we read a lot of books. Some of them you might not have heard of. Your kids might like them, too. Or not. In this occasional series I’ll share our current favorites, and maybe occasionally ones that we didn’t love so much. I accidentally opened a box that had some Christmas presents in it near the Bit ... Read More »

Crafting Holiday Goodies

My daughter is already home from school for winter break, and it’s freaking me out a little bit. But it was nice that I got to create some little gifts for her classmates and teacher before the rush of the holidays was fully upon us. I made two little things for the kids that your kids might like, too, if ... Read More »

Crocheting Snowflakes for Christmas, and So Can You

crocheted snowflakes

This year I’m taking part in a secret Santa ornament swap (well, I guess it’s only secret until Monday, when we all blog about what we got). I has a lot of trouble coming up with exactly what I wanted to create for my recipient. Knitting something probably would have made sense, but I didn’t have any particular inspiration. I ...

Knitting Geekery in Video Form

I really wanted to share all my finds from the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza with you in a way that wouldn’t require me writing or you reading the longest blog post in the history of knitting blogs, so I decided to make a video. This is my first video ever and I didn’t edit it at all, so bear that ... Read More »

Road Trips, Learning and the Fastest Knitter in the Room

math for knitters

Over the weekend I went to Hot Springs for the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza. It was so fun I can’t even tell you. You probably don’t want to know, unless you’re a knitting geek too. It was truly an extravagant event, full of gorgeous fibers, beautiful people and long, lovely stretches spent knitting, sometimes with great conversation to go with ... Read More »

A Knit with Greatness

I’m geeking out so hard right now, y’all! As you read this I am probably on my way to the Arkansas Fiber Arts Extravaganza. It’s a very elaborate name for what I hope will be a great time spent with other knitters and yarn crafters, and which I will probably leave much richer in fiber and poorer in, well, money. ...

Buttoned-Up Snowman Gift Tag

button snowman gift tag

This was one of the ideas I had for a greeting card, but as I mentioned, I don’t really send greeting cards, but I do give presents, so I decided to attach this little snowman to a gift tag instead. This is a crazy-simple project, really cute and fast. The longest part is waiting for the glue to dry. You’ll ... Read More »

A Super-Easy Holiday Card to Craft

ornament greeting card

I don’t know why it is that I have about a million ideas for holiday cards in my head. I’m sure it’s the influence of Pinterest. I don’t even send holiday cards. (I say that’s because if you feel compelled to send someone a card you should do it, not because it’s the holidays but because you want to. It’s ... Read More »
