Craftsy’s list of ‘National Food Holidays to Celebrate’ high in sweets, treats, alcohol

Craftsy has an interesting article on the blog today. It lists an item of food or drink for every day of the year. It’s fun to peruse, but I wouldn’t count on it as a guide if you’re seeking better health in 2016. I know, I know. “Moderation” is key. Enjoy life, but don’t blindly eat everything just because it’s on the “ultimate list”, okay? You’re health is important.

I think if one word was flipped over the other it would make the article more accurate. Here’s what I mean:

and eat well all year long.

I think it’d be more accurate to say: and, well, eat all year long.

Go ahead. Check it out. It’s still a fun read.

Bringing in the new year : Welcome 2016


Happy New Year!
May 2016 be your best year ever.


While spending the holiday with my family, I shared with Mom about the marvelous crocheted-edge flannel scarf. She loves red birds (cardinals, specifically) so I set out to create one for her during my visit. This was my last “wip” (work in progress) of 2015, and consequently the first to be carried over into the new year. Mom, I wish you a blessed and prosperous 2016. May it be your best year yet.

I share the same wish for my friends, followers and all you lovely lurkers too : May 2016 be a year of health, prosperity, and much peace for you and yours.

Enjoy the season,

Here we go……..

Here’s the Winter Blanket CAL (crochet-along) info and Block 1 from Agrarian Artisan.

Agrarian Artisan

Welcome to the Winter CAL 2015.   Today I’m introducing the CAL, providing information on requirements and the pattern for the first square motif, a ‘solid’ granny which should be pretty familiar and which will help you estimate your own requirements if you aren’t using the same yarn.

This post is rather long, so make a cuppa and settle down for a long read !


First let’s talk about yarn.  I’m using a double knit (DK) yarn and I’m making 2 blankets.

My first is a ‘sample’ blanket using 6 bright colours which cheer up winter and the second is also a bright colour palate but will be structured differently. I’m using the second colour set to crochet along with you.

Sample yarn:  John Arbon, Knit by Numbers DK, 100% merino, 100g/250m per skein.  2 skeins each of Blue (039), Pink (063), Yellow (052), Green (071) and Purple (029)  and 1 skein of…
