Whenever I see a message for a custom order, I get really excited. First of all, it means that I get to work with someone in turning an idea into reality, and I love that whole process. Second of all, it pushes me to try new things! When I got a message about making an amigurumi character from Cardcaptor Sakura, I was instantly intrigued.
When my friend Ryan asked me to make her a full-length cardigan, I was really excited. I’d never tackled anything with sleeves before, and I loved the idea of a robe-like cardigan that would be extra warm and cozy in the winter. Ryan may have had to wait patiently for this cardigan, but I hope she likes it as much as I do!
So a few months ago, I posted about a Kirby I had made for my friend, and I mentioned that I wanted to do more with it. Between school and the holidays, it took me a lot longer than I had expected, but here is the final addition – a little Yoshi “hat”, just as if Kirby had absorbed Yoshi in a game of Super Smash Bros.!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season spent with loved ones! I didn’t quite make most of my deadlines for homemade Christmas gifts, but these quick little mittens did make the cut.
This is my last week of classes for my speech-language pathology program, and my class has decided to do Spirit Week! Our theme today is Toque Tuesday, and I figured I might make a toque in celebration!
A couple of weeks ago, my friend sent me a picture and the following message: “Can you make something like this?”. My mind started going a million miles a minute, as I imagined the possibilities and options to put my own spin on the object.
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’ve always liked the word “autumn” better than “fall”, but what I didn’t know is that the former is used more in British English, while the latter is used more in American English! In Canada, people use both interchangeably, and as a side plug for linguistics, I think that’s a super neat example of sociolinguistics. Anyways, in response to the changing seasons, I whipped up a couple of quick headbands!
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.
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!
