Hello again, and happy December! Wow, we've made it almost to the end of 2016. I usually lose track of time this time of year. I've had a running "to-do" list since about the beginning of November with "Finish Marvel Squares" on there, and all of a sudden, woah it's December. Thankfully, I have them … Continue reading Marvel Square #8 – Scarlet Witch
Forgive me! I'm a little disorganized sometimes when it comes to following a schedule. There are only 3 squares left (2 after this one) and they will certainly be completed in time for you lovely people to complete your blankets by Christmas. I can't wait to see pictures of the finished product! One of the … Continue reading Another Marvel Square for you Patient People!
You might as well go to your local yarn store and buy a ton of yarn right now, because I can guarantee you will not be able to stop making these. For the longest time, crocheting triangles seemed impossible. I couldn't figure out how to make such a sharp point. It's honestly a little embarrassing … Continue reading Granny Square Triangle Scarf – Free Pattern!
For me, the beginning of the year starts in September. As a student and a dance teacher, everything starts again this month. After having July and August off from working and homework, September can be a bit of a stressful adjustment. Next week I will have my "last" first day of the year of university … Continue reading Hello, September
Funny story. I've been doing some serious reorganizing of my work space the past month. I needed to find a way to separate work from rest, so I decided it was time I make myself more of a "working area" within my home. Upon deciding this, many of my projects had to be packed away … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #6 – Hawkeye
There. I've said it. Sometimes I really do hate being a maker. And I've got my reasons. Exhibit A: I came across this adorable little cozy mug at the dollar store a few days ago. Wandering the aisles of dollar stores is actually kind of fun because you occasionally come across secret treasures, just like … Continue reading Why I sometimes really hate being a maker.
I know some of you may disagree with me, but I'm just going to say it anyways. I hate summer. While having time off is fun, and lots of exciting events take place during the summer, it is just not my cup of tea. Too hot. Too many bugs. Too sunny (I am am quite … Continue reading Free Beanie Pattern to Celebrate the End of Summer!
I'm back with everyone's favourite female assassin, Black Widow! This is a super easy grid and will be a nice break from all of the crazy colour changes we have been doing with graphghan squares in the past. Only two colours are involved in this one (can you guess?) and there should be very few … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #5 – Black Widow
I have a love-hate relationship with custom orders. They are a fantastic opportunity to try out new patterns and learn new techniques. They are a pain from a business standpoint as they usually take longer to complete due to the learning component of a new pattern. This makes my profit margin quite low if I … Continue reading Perfect Puff Stitch Hexagons – Free Pattern!
This minimalist Hulk pattern I've made up is a little more cute than incredible. He doesn't look quite as fearsome as I was going for, but it's hard to work with only 20x20 pixels! I tried to stick as close as I possibly could to the traditional feel of the Hulk. Angry face. Black hair. … Continue reading Marvel Graphghan Square #4 – The Incredible Hulk
