Last weekend was my first ever Knit City! It was basically your typical craft fair/marketplace with only fibre art related vendors. There were also tons of classes and lectures going on in other rooms. Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend any of those this year, but maybe Knit City 2018! I’m no stranger to craft … More Knit City 2017
My little monsters have an official pattern…and a name! These creatures have been living in my head for some time now. I had made one a long time ago during a stressful exam period to try and de-stress, but I never really took the time to note down my procedure…until now! Each monster is based … More Pattern: Yarnivores
I usually like to keep organized and on top of things when it comes to this blog (and in general, really). In the past it hasn’t been too difficult because of the constant flow of ideas and projects. I would spend my weekends taking pictures and writing posts to schedule for the month. Recently however, … More “Whoops, I made a hat!” Syndrome
With the seasons changing and the temperature warming up, I’ve been looking into some summer projects. I tend to focus on toys and amigurumi in the warmer months since it’s too hot for knitted clothing, but when I found some crochet chokers online, it sparked my curiosity! A little while ago I followed a pattern … More New Choker Designs
While shopping in Deserres in April, I stumbled upon these faux fur pompoms. I see these kind of hats all the time in commercial retail stores, and I never buy them because of the knitted body of the hat–I always steer away from buying knitted clothing items, because I know I am going to be … More Faux Pom Beanie
Back in December, I made a tiny teddy bear for my cousin that he could take with him to work for moral support. The whole concept behind it was to create a little buddy that could join him on adventures and provide some emotional support for those rough days. I like that idea of having … More Pocket Teddy in Action
As a continuation from last week’s post, my sister and I spent the following day after getting tattoos together doing crafty things! We visited a French craft store called, DeSerres. It was a cute little shop with cute little crafting things and cute little French boys stocking the shelves. While they didn’t exactly specialize in … More Happy Place Joey
As the weather starts to warm up and the sun starts to show up a little more, people are starting to strip their layers. While I’m still bundled in my knitted infinity scarves, I find myself looking around at people who might as well be in shorts and a tee on their way to the … More Spring’s got me choking, and not just from allergies!
Each member of my immediate family has some kind of crafty talent. Dad’s a graphic designer and product photographer, big sis is a wedding and portrait photographer/videographer, and momma, well, she’s a potter! She has been doing pottery for about 7 years now, growing her repertoire and experimenting with designs and techniques, much like myself. … More Meeting of the Crafts
Quick project I whipped up for my aunt’s birthday. She likes cute little trinkets and anything sugary and sweet, so this was perfect! Tiny amigurumi is something that intrigues me, as difficult as it is to do. Not my go-to project for a relaxing day in, but I’m always happy with the final product.
