Pattern testing is one of my favourite parts of the crochet community! It allows me to make new friends and try patterns that I might not otherwise get to try. Recently, I was chosen by Barkley to test her Carter Cable Beanie, and it was a great experience!
This weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving, and in the spirit of it, I thought I would try some new autumn baking recipes! I’ve never worked with pumpkin before, but my friends assure me that it is a very yummy ingredient.
One of the things I love most about the online crochet community is the atmosphere of collaboration and support. I have so much respect for the creativity of other makers, and I love it whenever I can be a part of that! When Holly, from Storyland Amis, asked me if I would be willing to pattern test for her again, I was overjoyed.
When best friends give you their leftover yarn, the only thing left to do is get creative! Since autumn is here now, I thought I would continue to work on designing more accessories to suit the weather. Continue reading

I started school again this week, but I wanted to hold on to the last gasps of summer by finishing one last crop top! I started this quite a while ago, but I couldn’t quite get it the way I wanted until now! It’s for my friend, Uyen, so I hope that she likes it as much as I do.
I’m not sure if anyone has actually ever picked up on this, but my Inspiration posts typically run on the third Tuesday of each month. I screwed up this month, but I think the thoughtfulness of this week more than makes up for this late post! This was inspired by the project that Justine at Chubby Knots is working on, as she is trying to send 500 toys to Syrian refugee children living in Lebanon this Christmas.
It’s been lovely this last week, as I haven’t had any school, work, or volunteer obligations. Instead, I’ve had a lot of time to rest, recharge, and recover! Part of my relaxation process has been a lot of crafting, and it’s been so therapeutic. One of the things I made was this really simple scarf!
