Inspiration #12 – Luxury Yarn

If you are looking for aesthetically pleasing Instagram accounts to follow, Top Knot Style is basically my number one recommendation. The blankets and scarves that Amanda makes are gorgeous, and the yarn she sells looks unbelievably squishy. I’ve been crushing on this yarn for so long, but it’s definitely in the “luxury” category. Since I made my best friend put up with my endless ramblings about this yarn, I decided that I would splurge on the yarn and make her a scarf for a Christmas present!

Inspiration #9 – ID Holder

I’m not sure about you, but 90% of the contents of my wallet never get used. There are gift cards for stores I rarely frequent, membership cards for stores I’ve been to once, and stamp cards for a variety of bubble tea places. Unfortunately, I’m also a girl who doesn’t like to carry a purse very often. This means that when I’m leaving the house, I’m clutching not only my keys, but a very large wallet that doesn’t fit into my pockets. I’m always on the lookout for a more convenient alternative, and I think I’ve finally found it! I decided to crochet a mini wallet, big enough for an ID and a debit card, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

Inspiration #8 – Stargazing

This summer, I’ve been working with some international students visiting from China, and it’s really helped to remind me of how blessed I am to live in Canada! I asked one of them what their favourite things about Canada was, and their reply was “the sky”. That made me pause for a second, as I’ve never even considered what it would be like to live in a city that is constantly dealing with smog or air pollution. In tribute to that, I wanted to try make a little amigurumi star, since that’s my favourite part of the sky!

Inspiration #3 – Pandora

Confession: I’m a sucker for personalization. I love the idea of being able to customize things to reflect your own story and so things like Pandora really appeal to me. However, sometimes I find the standard Pandora bracelet a bit much to wear with a casual outfit, especially if I’m already wearing a watch and the charms keep clinking against the watch face. Therefore, I like to get creative with the charms so that I can add my own twist!
