Are You Hooked on the Eclipse?

Are You Hooked on the Eclipse?

I took the day off from work and filming in the studio to attend an eclipse viewing event here in Central Wisconsin. This was a free community event that was hosted at our local high school. The event coordinators passed out special glasses so everyone could view the eclipse safely.

They had pinhole boxes, telescopes reflecting the eclipse and other viewing devices to make this a pretty spectacular viewing event. There were about 200 people in attendance from our small community which made this even more exciting to share it with others as equally eager as we were.

Central Wisconsin was at its peak of 83% totality at approximately 1:13pm CST. The moon left a small crescent of sun still peeking out from behind it before things began to slowly brighten up again. We did not experience complete darkness, but we did have a dusk-like light and definitely experienced a drop in temperature cooling things by several degrees. I have to admit, as someone who is fascinated by our solar system, astronomy, and space/universe in general, I was a pretty excited to experience this cosmic event. It makes you feel small in such a vast universe.

My dad, who we all know and love for his behind the camera work in our videos, was once again behind the camera during this event as he tried to capture small clips of the various stages of the eclipse.

He was able to capture a couple pretty remarkable photos of it as well.
Since the event at the high school began nearly 2 hours before the actual eclipse would occur, we brought blankets and lawn chairs as well as a picnic lunch to make our viewing party even more fun.

I also brought along my crochet project presently in the works. I am in the process of designing a mesh tunic for under Nate’s Halloween costume. I’m never far away from a project, so it was inevitable that I would pull out my latest project to work on during the time before viewing the solar eclipse!

I have to say, this was an above average viewing event and not one bit boring even if it was not full totality. I loved that the weather cooperated. It was a beautiful sunny 78 degrees Fahrenheit with very little cloud coverage which made visibility pretty neat. I’m happy to say that I lived to experience this in my lifetime as the last one was nearly a dozen years before I was born. It was “totality” worth it! What a memorable day this was!

Where were you viewing from and what did you see? What was on your hook while the moon passed over the sun? Share your Eclipse story in the comments! Enjoy a few clips from today’s view from Central Wisconsin, USA.

Crochet Tutorial: Spring Sun Mandala Vest

Crochet Tutorial: Spring Sun Mandala Vest

You asked. I answered. I hear you! My Spring Sun Mandala Vest is complete! Yes, this makes me as happy as it will you! This was made with Red Heart Yarns Super Saver Ombre in the color Cocoa. Can I say I am completely in love with this yarn without making my fiancé jealous? Let’s hope, because I am!

I made this to fit me. I am 5′ 2″ and I generally wear a size Small/Medium. I have given instructions in the Notes Section and in the video tutorial to alter this pattern to make it larger.

Something you may not know about my work process, is that I design my pieces off camera first, perfect the pattern, fix all the quirks, and get all my mistakes ironed out before filming my final piece in my tutorials. I first designed my Spring Sun Mandala Vest pattern using Caron Cakes in the color Macaron. This was my original prototype for testing the pattern. I filmed the video in the Red Heart Yarns Super Saver Ombre that I posted above, but if you are interested in seeing how the Cakes work for this piece, this should give you a pretty good idea! No matter what yarn is used, this piece is sure to be a big hit!

Crochet Tutorial: Hello, Sunshine Granny Square

Crochet Tutorial: Hello, Sunshine Granny Square

I created this Hello, Sunshine Granny Square design to add to our 365 Days of Granny Squares project. It uses variety of crochet stitches to create an interesting design! I hope you enjoy making your square!

A couple disclaimers before you start: Be sure to check your tension and use the correct size hook for your square. I demonstrate with an H-5.00mm crochet hook in the video tutorial, but you can make yours bigger or smaller by using a bigger or smaller hook. Also, if yours turns out wonky when you are finished, you may need to block this square to make it nice and flat.

Crochet Tutorial: Beach Swimsuit Cover-Up

I braved the chilly temperature to showcase my latest design for summer. My Mesh Beach Swimsuit Cover-up is here just in time to enjoy sand and surf. I would not recommend heading to the beach quite yet if you live in a climate like mine! My toes have finally started to regain feeling! Haha!! Things will be heating up soon!

Beach Cover3
Below a closeup photo of the Mesh Beach Swimsuit Cover-up. Made with 100% cotton, this piece can be worn over a swimsuit or as a tunic top. I have paired it over a swimsuit to show you how wonderfully useful this will be for summer at the beach
Beach Cover
I’m like a kid in a candy store when it comes to being excited for warm weather and fun in the sun! This cover-up was just the right piece to get me in the mood for summertime! This versatile tunic is not only perfect over swimwear, but it makes a nice summer top that can be worn over a sundress or tank top.

Beach Cover1
Removing the drawstring belt is optional, to give this piece a new look. The wide boat neck collar is perfect for wearing off the shoulder. Ooh, la, la! Summer, here we come!

Beach4
Here, I have paired it over a white dress for a more modest fashion tunic.
