Stash Enhancement Saturday: WWKIPD @ the Purl Soho Warehouse

Today was World Wide Knit in Public Day. On the second Saturday in June every year, knitters across the land come out to prove to doubters everywhere that people besides older grandmas actually enjoy this hobby. I knit in public all the time, so I don’t really plan around this event, but as someone that […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book

When writing this blog, sometimes I come across grammar questions and ponder whether to take the time to go look up the correct use or just leave the questionable usage as is, leaving a little something for future grammar sticklers to pick apart.  An excellent example is the title to today’s post.   Can you […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday – on a Sunday: Cosmo by Lecien Floss Bobbins

I have been in a very cross stitch mood as of late and my supplies are kind of strewn all over the table.  I knew I needed to buy some bobbins and wind the floss, but it kind of annoys me that the only real option to organize floss is the bobbin/plastic box option. I […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Erin Lane Project Bags

Every fiber artist needs a project bag or ten.  I probably have more than ten.  Okay, I actually probably have around 50, but I have a lot of WIPs!  I said that a little defensively,  I guess – can you feel personally attacked by your own words?  I also like how I used “a lot […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Crafty Christmas Gifts

As usual, my friends rocked the mic when it came to super thoughtful gifts for me.  They seemed to cover all the things I love – food (restaurant gift certificates, chocolate), relaxation (spa gift certificates), and crafty goodies like these below.  If I don’t mention it often enough, I love my friends! First up, this […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Sucre Sucre Miniatures

My obsession with tiny food miniature stitch markers continues.  I had seen various pictures on Instagram of the amazing work from Sucre Sucre Miniatures, but only recently purchased my first two to check them out on my own.  I am so glad I did because they are totally adorable! I chose the taco and burrito […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton

My yarn purchasing has been a bit slow lately, mostly because my knitting has been slow.  My wallet enjoyed the break, I am sure.  I need to start the holiday gift making, though, or else I am going to end up with no gifts to give. Therefore, right after Ravellenics is over, I am going […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: Burning Impressions 2 Sock Blockers

As you may have noticed from pictures of my finished sock projects, I have big, Fred Flintsone sized feet.  Despite already owning sock blockers in a Large size, my socks still look kind of loose on them, so I knew it was time to size up to the XL sized blockers. Luckily, you can buy […]

Stash Enhancement Saturday: ECLP Covers and Travel Dashboard

I mentioned in a previous post that one of the things I love about the Erin Condren Life Planner is that you can get interchangeable covers.  I change my covers every other month or so, and considering she keeps introducing super cute new ones, I don’t see this changing in the near future.  The latest […]
