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
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
I recently visited a cute little yarn shop owned by a fabulous indie-dyer. She carried the most beautiful yarns in her shop, many of which I have never even heard of before. I am super impressed with my willpower. I only bought a few skeins, and they were all meant for particular projects I wanted … Continue reading Is it okay to be a yarn snob?
After a bit of a wait, I finally have the third square ready! It's the weapon of choice for everyone's favourite Norse God, Thor's Hammer. We are mixing things up a little with this square by adding some burgundy and more muted tones. I want this blanket to just be a rainbow of colours once … Continue reading Square #3 of the Marvel Graphghan
For those of you who have been patiently waiting for the third square in the Marvel Graphghan, I have good news! It has been designed, tested, and will be posted tomorrow. While I only have time for a short post tonight, I'd still like to share the small progress I have made with my own … Continue reading Update on Marvel Graphghan
Hello again! I hope you all enjoyed the first square of my Marvel Graphghan, Iron Man (a personal favourite of mine). I'm still on a bit of a Civil War hype, so I'm going to run with it. Square #2 of the blanket will be Captain America's Shield! I wasn't totally sure how I wanted … Continue reading Marvel C2C Graphghan Square #2
Hello everyone! I am starting something very special today, something I have been planning out for a long time. It seems fitting, what with Civil War coming out today for early viewings, to share this after so much planning. I've been in love with anything super hero and/or comic book related for a good chunk … Continue reading Marvel + Yarn = Happiness
I recently had the opportunity to attend an interview with a local marketing agency, Jelly Marketing. It was an eye-opening experience that definitely made me take a step out of my comfort zone. Opportunities like the one I was given don’t come around very often, so I tried my best to absorb as much knowledge … Continue reading Jelly Follow-Up
