Jigglypuff purse and plush

I’ve been moving from project to project lately, having trouble finishing anything. I guess my crochet mojo had gone for a bit of a walk for a while. It has come back, and I finished putting this together today. After finishing the Magikarp bag, I knew I had to make a Jigglypuff one as well, […]

Scarves and stress relief

Two posts in one night! I thought about waiting until tomorrow to post this one, but I’d rather get it done before I forget. A few weeks ago, A Yarny Robin had a yarn giveaway for her two year anniversary, and I was the winner! She sent me this lovely, sparkly, alpaca yarn from Louisa Harding. […]

Star Trek CAL – Data

I finished making Data last week, but with how intense things have been around here with my daughter’s anxiety, I didn’t get around to weaving the ends in. I still haven’t, but thought I might as well post the pattern anyway. As weaving the ends is my least favourite part, I try to do them […]

Infinity ripple scarf

I have finished the Data panel and only need to weave the ends in and take photos, but that will have to wait until later today. I’m putting off doing the ends because I really don’t like that part, and because I’ve been bitten by the inspiration bug and have been bursting with ideas. It’s […]

Star Trek CAL – Wesley Crusher

Oh wow, it’s been over a month since I’ve worked on this blanket. Whoops! Things have been rough for us lately, but it’s hopefully improving. I am glad that I picked this up again, as it felt so good to make another panel. I’m not sure why I find these panels so relaxing, but I […]

Star Trek Badge Bag

This is a project I’m thrilled to have finished. Not just because it’s moved from the WIP to complete pile, but because it’s something I wanted and needed. I needed a new bag, so a while back I decided I’d turn one of my panels into a bag, and did the badge in HDC instead […]

Magikarp the Bag and Plush

I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been working on this. I was going to get back to working on my Star Trek blanket, but then I decided that I needed a Magikarp bag, so I made one. And while I was making it, I realised how cool it would be as a plush toy, so I […]

Pink Pineapples and Pokemon

About a year ago my daughter decided she liked pineapples. She already liked them to eat, but now she liked them as decoration.She started planning her ultimate dream home by the beach, with pineapple figurines and pineapple patterns on pretty much everything. But in a tasteful way, of course. There isn’t too much in the way […]

Granny Square Day 2016

I’m still floundering around on Instagram, brand new and all shiny, but I’m having fun looking at what’s around. I like being able to pop something up there as I’m making it, rather than waiting to have enough for a post here. It helps me feel like I’m doing things, because stuff can be seen by […]

WIP it! WIP it real good!

In my last post I shared a photo of one of my many WIPs, a green and white granny square blanket that I started some time last year. It was something that I was making for me, knowing that I would be keeping it and not maybe gifting it. Most of what I make is […]
