The Dutch Baby Project – First Installment – Sunnyside Cardigan

Gentle reader,

This post comes a little late, I’ll grant you, however, I have stuck to the previously outlined parameters and the first installment of The Dutch Baby Project was given to The Dutch Boss (who actually requested I refer to her as Cruella DeVille for reputation’s sake, but truly she’s a doll) on April 1st, fully completed, soaked, blocked and with buttons and all!

June IG Catch-Up!

Gentle reader,

How are you? Are you happy and well? Fear not if you didn’t score a giftie in the giveaway; I already have idea seeds to grow into giveaway plants.

Things have been quite busy-busy around here, and not in the happy-joy-joy crafty way. There has been crafting, but not nearly enough because I’ve recently started working full-time. Overall, that’s a GREAT thing, because money lets me buy yarn and get my sewing machine serviced (it was PROPERLY overdue, and I’m sure if I’d waited any longer, it would would have murdered me in an explosion of needles and machine parts). But generally the whole grown-up thing tires me out. Getting my sleeping pattern back to regular human cycles has been tricky; I was almost nocturnal before, I’m a happy-chappy in the nighttime. But, after three weeks of learning the ropes and going to bed at reasonable times, I’m gradually finding the energy and space to squeeze more SRS KFTY TAIMZ into my week. Hurray! So, since I’ve been in a state of flux, I figured the best post for now was an Instagram Catch-Up, which we’ve been a bit overdue for.

Last Reveal and OFF YOU GO!!

Gentle reader,

I’m so happy to reveal the final prize and open the giveaway! I’m also really excited, because through the generosity of my last benefactor, every will be getting a little something! ^_^

One of the lucky winners will receive a free copy of “The Old Man & The Sea” cardigan by Melissa of Singlehanded Knits fame. This is a gorgeous pattern, y’all. I just finished mine – it’s waiting for a soak and a block – and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The other awesome thing is that you’ll be able to join the Singlehanded Knits Old Man & The Sea Read/Knit Along. Seriously, this prize is basically a ticket to big fun. ^_^
