I’m moving!


I’m super excited to announce that I’m moving to Albuquerque, NM! Ted and I took a weekend trip there to meet the owners of the brewery he’ll be the new head brewer at, and they were super sweet!

Super bulky crochet triangle scarf (with tassel!)

Turn any crochet hat into a messy bun/ponytail hat


First of all, hi guys. I’m gonna start blogging regularily starting…now! Once a week will be my goal for now. Onto today’s subject: (photo & pattern by repeat crafter me) I would be lying to you all if I didn’t state this flat out first: I hate, hate, haaate this current trend.

multicolored knit diagonal stripes


This idea literally just popped into my head when I got out of the shower so I sat down and immediately graphed it. Someone’s probably come up with something similar but here it is: It’s really simple, just knit and purl. This shows the scarf on the right side, obviously the even # rows will be reversed.
