Show Notes

2022 Was a Good Year Overall!

I managed to put up a review of my finished projects from the year. I am sure I missed a few, however the video reflects everything I had taken pictures of.

As per my usual self, I went through a lot of changes, and so did my channel and my website. What’s life if we aren’t learning anything?

Having not set extravagant goals for myself which I would never have lived up to, I still finished a project per week! Go me.

There were great things that happened along the way, like losing over 20 pounds and several sizes down.

My plan this year is to keep on keeping on. Keep on being me. Doing what I can when I can and enjoying each moment.

Happy New Year!

Piketon Wrap

I have been working on a new project this week. I wanted to play around with using several fingering weight yarns together. I chose 4 cakes from my stash and got started.

Because I have been watching the trial of George Wagner in the case of the Piketon Massacres, I decided to call it The Piketon Wrap.

It takes 4 , there were 4 arrested for the murders, it’s chaotic and interwoven like the the family the accused come from, and the holes from the pattern look like faces to me.

I will post a picture when I finish, along with some written instructions. You can see me working on this during my Stitch in Crime latest episode.

I am really hoping for a resolution to the Delphi case. The family really needs it.

Seeing Double Crochet Mystery Shawl CAL Clue #4 and #5

I have a playlist for the Clues which you can access here: Seeing Double Crochet Shawl Mystery CAL

**Please note that some of the videos do also contain True Crime discussion.

Here is a written description of the Clues:

Clue #4: Row 1. (Increase Side) Ch 3, Turn. Triple Crochet ( yarn over twice, insert hook, pull up a loop, pull through two loops on the hook, yarn over, pull through remaining two loops on the hook) in the same stitch. Triple crochet in each stitch across. Triple crochet in top of chain at the end of the row. Row 2. Ch 3, turn, Triple crochet in the next stitch and across, Triple crochet in chain at the end of the row. Repeat row 1 and 2 twice more. 6 rows of triple crochet.

Clue #5: This is a general guide for finishing the rows.

If you are color blocking each clue in a separate color, you will now reverse the colors. This will create the intention of the shawl, which is to see it in double, or mirroring the work.

You will now work the sections (or clues) in reverse. Clue #4 will be in the center, and you will go back the other way to where you started.

So the order should be: Clue 1, Clue 2, Clue 3, Clue 4, Clue 3, Clue 2, Clue 1.

And of course the color combinations and yarns you use are totally up to you!

I will see you for the final step, Clue #6, which will be the edging!

Have fun today!

The Yarn we are using is a fabulous hand dyed 100% Merino worsted from the every talented Donna of CrystalSkyesHandDyed on Etsy. While you do not have to use this yarn, please go over and take a look at what she has to offer, it’s all so beautiful!

OH, and if you would like to use something from my shop, I have some gorgeous hanks that would work great for this as well. All hand dyed Exclusive Colors by Amber of Crafty Performers, just for the Fiber Floozie! Please have a look!

Baby It’s Cold And Let’s Catch Up!!

Well it’s been a hot minute since I posted. However I am not letting the grass grow under my feet over here! Haha!

I finished two hats….

Custom order #1.
Custom order #2.

I finished this cowl and am working on a tutorial for it.

The yarn for the cowl is a lovely cotton from Made In America Yarns. One of their lines called Florafil. It’s so light and fluffy for a bulky cotton! Love it.

The Be “Squared “ CAL is gaining speed! We have 11 squares under our belt now!

And here’s a sneak peak at my first go at designing a shawl!

It should be going out to testers soon! So exciting!!

Stay warm everyone! Spring is coming 😊
