I'm afraid I'm not quite done with autumn yet, friends. First, an update on how the wreath turned out: Super cute, no? I wound up not using all the patterns I'd planned due to space considerations (by which I mean, really, the size of the wreath form that I used), but I love how it… Continue reading More with the autumn decor!
Happy Wednesday, friends! The temperature has taken a significant dip and it's feeling like autumn. Autumn is my favourite season and always has been. I love the sights, smells, colours, and even drinking my pumpkin spice latte in my yoga pants and big sweater. And so, the autumn spirit has caught me early this year,… Continue reading What I’m working on: an autumny wreath!
You know those chilly summer mornings, when the sun is bright and filtering through the trees in dappled light and shadows, but some of the night's coolness is still hanging in the air? I love those mornings. And in a short while, I'll love them even more with the cardigan I'm working on: Okay, so… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: Light summer cardigan
I'm still all about the spring, and I *do* have my gorgeous new tattoo that I haven't had a chance to show off yet (I got it in November, so it would have plenty of time to heal before being exposed to summer sun), and so those two things have come together to make this… Continue reading What I’m working on: a cute spring tank top!
I call this a "pseudo" yoga pillow because a proper meditation pillow (also called a yoga pillow) should be filled with buckwheat, and (aside from not having several pounds of buckwheat just sitting around) the stitches are a fairly loose and made with a very chunky yarn (which I bought before I thought of this),… Continue reading What I’m working on: a pseudo-meditation pillow!
My current mini-project is something I wish I had thought of myself: water bottle holders, to just sling over your shoulder on your way out the door, rather than juggling keys, a handful of other stuff, trying to give the dog a treat, corral my son, AND get my butt out the door while trying… Continue reading What I’m working on: water bottle holders for the whole family!
This pattern was featured as the pattern of the week awhile back when I made my own sweater/dress from it, and you know what? It's still an amazing pattern that I adore. This time, the sweater/dress goes to the lovely Kathleen, and I'm adding to it all the things I didn't add to my own. Hers… Continue reading What I’m working on: a gorgeous sweater/dress for my gorgeous girl!
I'm on a footwear kick right now, because warm feet are the best, and these two-tone slippers will definitely make my feet nice and warm. I used a 3-weight yarn where the pattern called for a 4-weight yarn (because I had lots left over after my napa cardigan), but I think these will be nice… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: slippers!
This one is for my mother in law, and like the genius I'm sometimes really not, I completely underestimated how much yarn this would require (those bobble stitches really eat up the yarn!), so this week we're getting more to finish this beauty. I really love the effect of the variegated yarn and how the… Continue reading What I’m working on this week: another bath mat!
This cute little triangle of yarn is on its way to becoming my first hand-made bralette! I found the pattern here: https://moralefiber.blog/2018/06/13/basic-bralette-tutorial/ and so far it's incredibly easy to follow. I'm intending this solely as an around-the-house sort of item, so I promise you'll never need fear me modeling it on this blog 🙂 I… Continue reading What I’m working on: a super cute bralette!
