Getting the Hang of Things

Learning to tat is challenging me quite a bit more than anything else I’ve tried. It has taken me days, actual days, to figure out how to make and flip the loops correctly, make a passable ring, and then join the rings together. I’ve watched innumerable video tutorials, read tons of written tutorials, and still it took […]

Crafty Curiosity

I’m curious how many others are out there who are as involved in various crafts as I am. I do tons of things, although not all of them well. To recap, my interests are loom beading, weaving, spinning on wheels and spindles, knitting, crochet, naalbinding, chain maille, stained glass, and Kumihimo. I guess I should […]

Once more, with feeling

Doublewoven disaster

Yup, you read it right. The end result, which I will not be photographing for posterity, was a disaster. About the only thing right with it is the fact that it is a double width length of fabric. However, it’s only about twelve inches tall, due to my many mistakes! But now I know what not to do. I enrolled in some classes […]
