Candy Floss Cowl

Spring is coming. My joint seasonal and Game of Thrones excitement aside, I was suffering from some serious winter blues. Even with warmer weather headed our way, I can’t help but continue knitting—obviously! Actually, the cold was getting to me so bad that I stopped knitting for a while. I couldn’t bring myself to do … Continue reading Candy Floss Cowl

Grey Heart Beanie

It’s a Canadian cliché to talk about the weather, so I promise that I won’t this time around. Let’s just say that I’m still very much motivated to knit (it’s still very cold—that’s all). This beanie is a product of a very lazy weekend and determination to create gift-worthy pieces. Although I love knitting—and create … Continue reading Grey Heart Beanie

Jewellery Tray

If there’s anything I love about crochet—and trust me, there are many things—it’s the endless number of functional items that beg to be created. When I sit down to knit, I’m always temped to create a hat, headband or pair of mittens (that pretty much sums up the extent of my knitting projects), but crochet … Continue reading Jewellery Tray

Cable Hat

It’s next level cold here in Canada and I’m sick of it. I just had to put that little complaint out there. We also just had another 5+ inches of snow—ok that’s it, promise. The only benefit to the chilly weather is my increased drive to knit. Benefit, you ask? I’ll take what I can … Continue reading Cable Hat

Knit Mittens

I’ve opened the Pandora’s box of knitting. It was only a matter of time, but I knew that once was able to knit mittens there’d be no going back. As soon as I passed the struggle of starting a project on four needles, these mittens came together extraordinarily quickly. And as soon as I finished … Continue reading Knit Mittens

Seed Headband

When I started knitting, I rarely wore the projects I made. I started giving them away to anyone who would wear them (the poor souls…), or stashing them away as proof of what I had done. Luckily I’ve moved on from then to create pieces that I can actually wear—this headband, for example. Not only … Continue reading Seed Headband

Cable Boot Socks

Although we’re still in the depths of winter up here in Canada, I can’t help but dream of crisp fall days. Besides the beautiful leaves and relatively mild weather, I love fall fashion and layering. I’m the kind of gal that will start wearing boots as soon as it’s socially acceptable (sometimes sooner), so wearing … Continue reading Cable Boot Socks

Cup Cozies

It’s absolutely no secret that I love coffee. If I’m awake, I want coffee. One of the greatest appeals of my favourite beverage is also its worst: it’s so dang hot! Thankfully most coffee shops tackle that issue/benefit with convenient coffee sleeves. Most do, but my favourite coffee chain does not—thus, cup cozies! Cup cozies … Continue reading Cup Cozies

I first ventured into the relaxing world of knitting during my last year of university. Being in my early 20s, most everyone scoffed at this hobby—I couldn’t really blame them. In reality, knitting was a haven of sanity in my world of crazy. Like most hobbies adopted early in life, I dropped knitting for a … Continue reading eReader Cover
