Make In The New Year!

Make In The New Year!

New Year's Eve is upon us friends!

Will you be getting dressed up in your fanciest clothes and painting the town red with all of your bestest friends?

OR

Will you be like me, and put the children to bed, kiss your husband good night and blissfully spend the night making your heart out (re: knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing, spinning, darning- whatever!) in front of a warm fire with a cup of tea and thinking fondly about the past year?

Ahhhh bliss....is it bed time yet?

If you will be choosing the second scenario, then you are cordially invited to spend your evening with me, not in my home of course, but virtually on my Facebook Fan Page ontheroundfiberart! I am hosting a super fun event starting tonight at 7 pm, EST until sometime after midnight. There will be giveaways, funny meme's, great discussions, and a fun community of other creative people who are staying in and being cozy this holiday night.

All you have to do it like my page and join the event (link below) from there event posts should start popping up in your facebook feed or you can click back on the event at any time during the night to see whats going on!

All attire is welcome- BYOB, please make responsibly!

If you have any questions, please post them here or in the event page and I will answer them as quickly as possible.

I hope to see you tonight!

Oh, Hello 2015...


Good morning! I've been busy this morning getting photos and spinning supplies ready for my first update in 2015, when it occurred to me that I haven't updated my blog in a looooooong time.

Sorry about that.

It's the new year, so obviously that means a whole new set of goals/plans/dreams, a yes, I've got lots. I thought I might share a few of them with you today.

First and foremost, I would like to...

OnTheRound Luxury Batts to Yarn


Good morning! It feels like I was waiting for Friday all week, and now that I'm here, I don't quite know what to do with myself.... I have so many thoughts and ideas and projects going on I keep finding myself spinning in circles!

Usually when this happens (I must admit it happens frequently) it's best to just sit down and see what computer work needs to be done. So here I am.

Earlier this week I...

New- Basic Beenie Knitting Pattern

Basic Beenie Knitting Pattern Available Now!
Often when I tell someone I am a knitter, or someone see me knitting, I am asked to knit that person something. It's the funniest thing..... Does that ever happen to you?

As a result of constantly being asked to knit, I designed this simple little hat. Simple and flattering- perfect for everyone all shapes and sizes! It's the perfect pattern for gift...

Mom's Who Make: OnTheRound

I'm starting a new series here on my blog, about Mom's Who Make. This series will feature other fellow artisan makers who do it all while taking care of their children, and even some who also work outside of the home! 

To start the series out I will begin by talking about my own experience making and mothering.

Open Studio



High on my to-do list this weekend was cleaning my studio! Last week was vacation week so I didn't get to spend very much time working- as you can see in the before picture, I just kept cramming everything into the studio to get it out of the way.

Usually on Sunday's I try not to work, BUT in this case I really needed to get this mess under control. Nothing makes a Monday worse than a big mess.

So...
