I'm feeling a hankering for spring. A serious, serious hankering for spring. Rather than take an airplane somewhere warm, tempting though that be, I decided to get a start on my spring wardrobe instead! This Savy Shrug by Crochet It Creations was relatively quick (It was done inside a weekend), definitely beginner-level easy, and I'm… Continue reading A quick, easy weekend project: The Savy Shrug by Crochet It Creations
Hello Friends, I was lucky enough to make it to the Kawartha Yarn and Fibre Festival a couple weeks back with my lovely friend Angie, and among our road-tripping adventures (farms and food and ice cream, oh my!) she became convinced that I needed this sparkly yarn made of beauty and merino wool and she… Continue reading Pattern of the Week: a delicate, sparkly sparkly bolero!
This week our featured pattern is the Chunky Poof Pillow by Sara Sach over at Posh Pooch Designs. I've been lurking over at her site forever now, and her work is creative and professional and utterly adorable. I've been meaning forever to make a meditation pillow for myself. And this isn't really a meditation pillow… Continue reading Pattern of the week: Easy comfy round cushion
I thought I'd end the month with one final little spring pattern: a cute little bird amigurumi! The original pattern is the Mini Cockatiel Amigurumi, which is what I'd originally started to make, but then Bear (the recipient of said tiny little bird) decided that it needed to be grey, and it needed to have… Continue reading Pattern of the Week: tiny little bird!
Hi Friends! This week's pattern of the week is actually several patterns. I was in the mood for a new spring-themed wreath for the front door, so I grabbed a styrofoam wreathform (I'm afraid that I'm the sort who does indeed have that sort of thing sitting around so I can't remember where it came… Continue reading Pattern of the week: flowers!

This week's featured pattern isn't a bunny, but your own little bunny will probably love it (mine does!). It's… Continue reading Pattern of the Week: Cute little carrot treat bag!
You saw these super cute little slippers on my "what I'm working on" post last week, but I love them enough that I'm dying to feature the pattern! These ones are from a Crochet Ballet Slippers pattern designed by Tamara Kelly, and they're lovely and warm and adorable. I think this might be my new go-to… Continue reading Pattern of the week: cozy house slippers!
I've featured this pattern a couple of times in my "what I'm working on" posts, but it's finally done and I'm so happy with it! And "it" is the Comfortable Napa Belted Jacket, and I love it SO much. I did mine in Caron Simply Soft, and in colours that suit me FAR better than… Continue reading Pattern of the Week: Belted Napa Cardigan
I wanted to make a little gift for my Kathleen, because she's amazing and deserves little gifts and making things for her makes me happy, and so I sought out something semi-practical but meaningful to her, and lo and behold! I found this pattern: Owl Bean Owls have symbolic meaning for her (she's all about… Continue reading Pattern of the Week: Super cute little owl!
