This Week in HaldeCraft

I meant, last week, to discuss the difference between renewing and relisting. When I say I’ve “renewed” an item, what I mean is that even though it hasn’t sold, it’s been up for the four months that Etsy will keep it up when you originally list the item. When you …

The Ghost in Love

The Ghost in Love by Jonathan Carroll My rating: 4 of 5 stars Sometimes things that Jonathan Carroll does in his writing, like switching viewpoint characters three different times on the same page, don’t seem to bother me as much in his writing as it would in anything else. Perhaps …

Spin State

Spin State by Chris Moriarty You know those rides at theme parks that say you must be THIS TALL to get on this ride? I feel this book should come with a “you must be THIS SMART to read this book.” If you at all are interested in entanglement theory, …

This Week in HaldeCraft

Good mix this week of  new and restocks. Clicking on the link will take you to the Etsy page! 1. Sunflower – originally from my Little House/literary soap club, I have a few extras so am listing them. Mmmm, sunflowers! 2. Set of two Love mugs – Mod! Groovy! Pink! …

Build me up, Buttercup

Yarn: Classic Elite Classic Silk, which I love, love, love! A little dry while working with it but fucking butter soft after washing. Pattern:  Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier Notes:  The problems I had with this were many, and they were all me — this is a hella easy pattern and …
