BBQ Chicken Pizza

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

More food!  In addition to the crockpot, I also received a pizza stone and peel for Christmas.  I was pretty excited about this – I hate how pizza tends to be soggy in the middle and burnt around the edges, so I was pretty sure that the pizza stone would solve all of my problems. […]

New Year’s Resolutions

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I don’t usually make new year’s resolutions, but this year I’ve made a few.  A major one is to get back to posting regularly!  Secondary to that, I’ve decided that I need to entertain more at home, so that might benefit the blog as well, since there is usually food involved in entertaining! Speaking of […]

I finished Seascape a while ago, but I hadn’t had a chance to take any pictures.  I finally found some time, and some sunshine. The finished dimensions came in at 10.5? x 88?, leading to a pretty respectable scarf.  The edges seem to curl in a little bit, even after blocking, but I rather like […]

Garden 2009

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

While I wasn’t blogging, the garden grew!  I thought that a big update of what we have growing was in order.  Saturday it didn’t rain, so I got a chance to take some pictures. Here is the garden as a whole (please don’t judge our shaggy lawn, it’s been rainy everytime there is time to […]

Oh look, I have a blog!

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

The other day my sister complained to me that I hadn’t blogged in ages – and she was right!  And I don’t even have a good excuse for the last month!  I finally defended and started my new job, oh and moved – so there has been a lot going on, but it’s starting to […]


3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

It’s been a while, huh?  I’ve been too busy to blog, too busy to craft really.  34 day until my PhD defense, so not to much time for anything! But we did make a tasty dinner last night, fajitas! Two small steaks were rubbed with salt, pepper, and a little taco seasoning and grilled.  The […]

Sheldon is Excited for Spring!

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I finally got around to finishing Sheldon.  I started on him months ago, ran out of yarn and put him down.  I finally picked up some more yarn and finished all of the pieces a little while back.  (The yarn is just Sugar n’ Cream cotton.) Then I ran into an unusual stumbling block in […]

I Can Hear My Knitting Laughing at Me

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

Loudly, in fact. I’ve been annoyed at knitting lately, and I was trying to hold on to a project that wasn’t really working.  First, recall this awesome swatch that I knit ages ago (March 3rd, actually).  I made that swatch in preparation for some awesome fingerless gloves that I had envisioned in my head.  Enter […]

Alien Invasion

3 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

Another little ami – this time from my imagination.  I had envisioned a green alien, but the only green yarn I had was far to splitty to be crocheted tightly.  So, white won.  But, I like the white and red combo, especially the eyes.  Each eye is made of four red seed beads from my […]

My progression to making up s’more-cakes this morning started like this:  1. I want pancakes.  2. Maybe chocolate chip pancakes.  3. Oh look, a modification next to the recipe to make graham cakes.  4.  Oh look, there are mini marshmallows in the cupboard next to the chocolate chips.  5.  Oh my god – s’more-cakes! (At [...]

Hoppity Hop Hop Hop

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

Please meet Barnabus Bunny!  This is a amigurumi love bunny that I made as part of a CAL in the amigurumi lover’s group on Ravelry. He’s pink - but for some reason seemed more male than female, so Barnabus it is.  He also has a cute little tail, but I only snapped this one good picture [...]

Knitting for Kicks

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I got some totally sweet size 1 dpn’s from Tim’s mom for Christmas.  So, I decided to make me some socks.  In the process I discovered that these are the most slippery needles I own… but it made things interesting! So far I have made one sock.  The pattern is called Dublin Bay (link is down [...]

WIP: February Lady Sweater

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

So, I’m pretty sure that everyone on Ravelry ends up making this sweater sooner or later (So far, 3417 people!).  I guess it’s my turn right now.  I cast on for this sweater just before new years, so I’m making some decent progress.  Here are a few pictures that I took the other day. Here it [...]


9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I spent the first part of my Christmas vacation furiously knitting this cute capped sleeve cardigan called Shalom (the pattern link is on the right hand side of the site, a little ways down).    Yarn is Wool of the Andes Bulky in Pewter from KnitPicks.  I used about 3 1/2 hanks for a total of [...]

Beer Sweater Reaction

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

My father and brother (along with all of the other men) really liked their tiny beer sweaters. My dad was also quite thrilled with his convertible mittens.  I was really happy about that because sometimes it’s hard to figure out what he will like! Posted in crafting, Handmade Christmas

Snake Scarf - Teaser

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I really wanted to post the finished scarf and the pattern for this snake scarf today, but last night I broke my camera (while trying to fix my camera).  It was only a matter of time, I mean, I did drop it while in a cave a few months ago, and I’ve fixed it myself [...]

Preppy Beer Sweater

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

This beer sweater looks a little preppy to me, with it’s mock turtleneck and cable down the front.  Maybe it’s destined to snuggle up to a high class beer!  In making this second beer sweater, I obviously changed a few things from the first.  I also didn’t screw up the decreases after attaching the sleeves, [...]

HOW TO: Crochet a Top Hat

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

Sometimes amigurumi critters need top hats.  I have reached one of those times, although I can’t show you the whole thing right now.  But, I can help you make your own top hat.  I made this pattern up pretty late last night, so if there are mistakes in it, please let me know!! Materials - size E [...]

Polka Dot Madness

9 years agoHobbies / Crafts : craftykeg

I got this idea at all buttoned up, and I thought that it was such a cute way to brighten up a shirt that you felt ho-hum about.  I changed out the wax paper for a piece of file folder because my hole punch didn’t want to cut all the way through the wax paper.  [...]
