Coming up with a pattern idea is fun. Testing the pattern and physically making prototypes is even more fun. Actually typing up and posting the pattern is definitely not fun. Regardless, I am excited to share with you what I have fondly named "The Benjamin Scarf". This is probably one of my favourite patterns I … Continue reading Free Beginner Crochet Pattern – “The Benjamin”

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!
