Over time, I have made a lot of dice bags. They are now for sale at Farbo Co, a wonderful gaming shop located right be Central Market in Lancaster, PA, USA. I recommend checking them out, and buying a dice bag. I have gamed in the past and have quite a collection of dice myself. […]Read More Dice Bags at Farbo Co!
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Have a great Yule! Celebrate a festive Saturnalia! Now for some knitting…..the yarn in the photo above is a Noro version of Kureyon. I haven’t had a ball of Noro, or any luxury yarn, in ages. It feels good to indulge a little bit. Seriously, have a happy and safe holiday […]Read More Merry Christmas from Rock Star Knitting!
Now, please note, my birthday isn’t until October, but my aunt and uncle recently moved, and rather misplace my gift during their transition, my aunt chose to give it to me while she knew where it was. She gave me some BEAUTIFUL birthday yarn. The yarn is by Leading Men Fiber Arts, and I made […]Read More Birthday Yarn

Since he’s a short haired dog, I figured a sweater would be a good idea for him in the upcoming colder months that I really don’t want to think about right now. Details?

Either way, say hello to my stuffies WITH faces above! Looking at the photo, you can tell what I did. I got some pom poms, and grabbed my […]Read More Stuffies WITH Faces
Yup! My stuffies from Annie’ Knit Animal Friends are coming along, though they are currently stuffies without faces. I’m still deciding on how to go about that. I’ll tell you why I don’t want to do what the patterns recommend in a sec. First of all, the doggie looks much better than the anemic-ly stuff […]Read More Stuffies Without Faces

Has it really been over a month since I last posted? That’s bad, and I’m guilty of being a bad blogger. To be honest, I needed a break. I was burned out on writing and even a little bit with knitting. I’m a little more re-energized now. I concentrated on a different things, like crocheting […]Read More Guilty
The government entity I work for is having a “Knitting Over Lunch” group once a week. A lady from another department runs and teaches it. I’ve gone twice now. It’s awesome to see different people from different departments and how diverse our knitting group is, and not just in skill level. Beginners are certainly welcome […]Read More Knitting Over Lunch at Work
