monday reading

and the links continue.

this wouldn’t be a craft blog if i didn’t have an entire post dedicated to crafting links, right?

part of rehabbing my elbow has meant taking a break from things that aggravate it. seems logical but is much harder to do in reality. not spending as much time on my phone has been greatly aided by the new screen time feature…i set a limit of 2 hours and for the most part, i abide by my own rules. another part of this has been…no knitting. yes. it is tragic. especially considering that i had cast on a tecumseh sweater. it is stashed away for now, looking pretty in a rope basket. i will come back around to it. this ravelry thread had been immensely helpful as i ran into questions at the beginning of the pattern.

had i done a little more research prior to starting my tecumseh, i would’ve done these german short rows for the shaping.

gorgeous hand-dyed yarns.

knitting. outer space, huge. perfection.

i love the simple lace work of this cowl.

brioche beauty.

karen has been obsessing over this dickey for probably months now. and for very good reason. i now want/need to make one.

and now for some sewing/embroidery links…

i keep seeing some really pretty double hoop embroideries on insta. here’s a tutorial for making one.

i love the ruffles sara added to her hinterland dress.

and unsurprisingly i love the ruffled version of this pattern.

into this.

i have always been interested in doing a hand quilting project but i always wondered about those pesky knots. suzy made an excellent video, showing exactly how to make your quilting neat and knot-free.

and finally, this is your brain on crafting.

until i can craft again, i’ll keep my eyes open for inspiration.
