month of craft photos: days 21-ish through 29-ish

I’ll admit, I gave myself a lot of free passes to skip days on the last week of this project.

Day Thirty: Your Crafting Companion

Wordless for now, I’m hoping to do a full round-up post over the weekend, and maybe have some knitting done to show you.

tuesday is the new monday!

I’ve been taking a photo a day as part of the Month of Craft Photos project.

Day Seventeen: Last FO You Used

Day Seventeen: Last FO You Used

This is my Idlewood, the way it usually looks just after I’ve finished wearing it – inside-out. I wore it to school that day, and the weather was just right for it.

Day Eighteen: Craft Books

Day Eighteen: Craft Books

My craft book collection has slowly expanded to two shelves, and this is what I keep on the top one.

Day Twenty: Finishing

I realize that, in a fit of enthusiasm/intentional forgetfulness, I managed to skip both Day Sixteen and Day Nineteen. I’ll have to go back and do one of them before the end of the month.

Day Twenty: Finishing

When I saw the prompt for “finishing,” the first thing that came to mind was this sweater. I have had a lovely, relaxing long weekend, and spent a lot of it working away on the sleeves, but I’m in the oh-god-I-want-this-done phase of knitting, right now.

It’s a much more photogenic knit with sleeves on, and looks a lot more like a real sweater!

where i craft and a new skill

Day Fourteen: Where You Craft

I am so, so tempted to pretend that I am one of those people who has a clean house, and is organized, and always crafts in a sweetly-decorated, clutter-free space, like this.

Unfortunately, some of you have actually been to my apartment, where it’s totally obvious that the place I really craft is here.

Day Fourteen: Where You Craft

Before you ask/sorry mom, my desk is always that messy. Usually the project to the left of the computer is knitting; the day I took my photos I was working on embroidery transfers instead.

I tend to craft next to my computer both because I’m a huge nerd, and also because I love to watch movies and TV, especially while I knit (currently on rotation: Warehouse 13, The New Girl, and Xena), and my desktop serves as my television and DVD player most of the time.

I actually really love this photo prompt – I think “where you craft” is a really interesting question to ask people, and I’d be curious to know what the answer is for a lot of my friends.

Day Fifteen: A New Skill

Day Fifteen: A New Skill

I’ve been looking for a way to take up embroidery for a while, now, and while I was traveling, I stopped in at a craft shop and found exactly what I needed to get excited about it: days-of-the-week iron-on transfers.

I bought the transfers and fabric to sew my own tea towels, because clearly it is very, very important that I have one for every day of the week, with a jolly squirrel doing chores on it.
