About a month ago, my Instagram feed proved to be too much of a temptation for me – I saw the BrickBubble Hand Loom kit, and I knew I had to try it!
Confession: I actually graduated from university last year. At the time, I didn’t feel that nostalgic, since I knew I would be heading back to school, but seeing all of the posts that my friends were making this month has made me change my mind. As a result, I decided to make this little mortarboard!
Succulents are so trendy these days, and I thought I would love to join in on the fun! As always, I tend to be drawn towards things that are done in miniature, so when I sat down to tackle this project, I knew I wanted to make it small.
So ever since I started this blog, I’ve been trying to visit local yarn shops whenever I travel. Luckily, my travel companions have been pretty accommodating so far, even when I spend way too much time gushing over the selection once I get inside. On my latest trip to Los Angeles, the local yarn I picked up was by In the Deep Hue Sea!
If summer is for crop tops and winter is for scarves, what should spring’s go-to piece of crochet be? I’m thinking it might be shawls! I’ve never worn (or made) a shawl before, but this pattern was so pretty that I knew I had to give it a try.
I am not kind to cell phones – I tend to be clumsy, and as a result, my phone is more familiar with concrete floors than it should be. Most of the time, I have a case on my phone, but after my recent trip to LA where my phone case sacrificed itself to protect my screen, I’ve been left with no case while I wait for a new one to ship. In the meantime, I thought I’d use a crocheted case to protect my phone from the worst of it.
One of my favourite things about the crochet community is connecting with other people through social media! Ever since I saw Holly (@storyland_amis) and her 100 amigurumi countdown, I knew that she was an exceptional crochet designer. When she posted on Instagram asking for pattern testers for her cuddle-sized Zippy the Sloth, I jumped at the opportunity.
Having just come back from the beach, I am filled with a new fondness for the beach and sea creatures! While I didn’t actually see any (live) crabs, I still wanted to make one, mostly because I feel like they are cuter in crochet form than they are in real life.
This week, I’m actually on vacation in LA with one of my best friends! It’s been a lot of fun exploring the city and eating yummy food. Aside from that, my friend swears by her sleep mask for travel, and I was intrigued by the idea! I’ve never really used them before, but I figured it was a worth a try to look into!
