Spring Flowers

Spring is finally here and summer seems to be just around the corner. While I love summer (who doesn’t?), it leaves me with absolutely no desire to pick up a ball of yarn. Wool and warm weather just don’t mix—period. Without drawing this weather talk on any further, I needed a new hobby. Rather than … Continue reading Spring Flowers

Linen Cowl

I recently discovered the one stitch to rule them all. A stitch that can make even an amateur like me look like a pro: The linen stitch. I have a feeling that everything I make from here on out will be made from this stitch. Well, not actually, but I will use it until I … Continue reading Linen Cowl

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

Cup Cozy

Another cup cozy? Yes. Not only can I no longer handle a little bit of coffee cup heat on my hands but I’m also a cup cozy fiend. After I figured out how to knit a cozy, a crochet version wasn’t too far behind. I actually like the crochet version more. Crochet is generally thicker, … Continue reading Cup Cozy

Bright Basket

If you take a spin past my Valentine’s Day post, you’ll see that I included a festive little basket. This basket is very much a variation of that basket, but bigger and brighter! I also used twine (I love twine). While twine can be a bit difficult to work with, the end result is well … Continue reading Bright Basket
