This time, we had more autumnal colors–forest green, and scarlet red (mixed with black to make … More Fading into Fall
In true crafter’s fashion, I have gotten distracted from all the plans I had and started a bunch of new projects. More on this to come, but first, the activity of the day is tie dye!

This post is late! Sorry! I had this post lined up for my usual Friday upload schedule but instead of writing about the show, I was at the show. Forgive me for the delay, but here’s what went down: A few weeks ago I was in the car with my dad (we call him Papa) … More Phantom of the Papa

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.
My “ah mah” (grandma) lives in Malaysia where it averages about 30 degrees celsius all year round, but she has requested a pair of gloves because apparently, her hands get cold! Her specific requests were: Longer cuff to cover more of her arm Covers most of her fingers… …BUT NOT ALL THE WAY A few … More Barely Fingerless Gloves
As January has come to an end it’s really starting to hit me that it’s 2017! Knitting/crochet quickly became such a core part of my identity this past year, to myself and many others.
