Blow me away…

Autumn here is windy. First windy, then windy with beautifully coloured swirling leaves, then just grey, dirty and windy. What’s a girl to do? Well this one embraces those fall layers (pumpkin spice helps too. Chai anyone?) and that includes my neck! Whether you’re a scarf, infinity scarf (with or without the twist!), or aContinue reading “Blow me away…”

Steal my heart

While talking with a friend who crochets, we decided I should come up with a pattern that we decided she would work up as an experiment. So since she was making it, I let her choose what the finished item would be and the theme of it. I’m not giving out any more than thatContinue reading “Steal my heart”

That lazy hazy feeling

You just can’t beat that laid-back vibe the end of summer has. Embrace it and carry it on into fall with this week’s new pattern, the Breezy Days girls pullover.

This week it’s the Illusion Placemat, with three interlocking diamonds that remind me of those wood and metal puzzles where youContinue reading “No tricks here.”

Dining outside just seems to take on a refined vibrancy that is so appealing. It has it’s own aesthetic when compared to dining indoors, it’s everything we want toContinue reading “Beauty and Bite”

Hygge just got cozier

Just after completing my first designs, I was talking about crochet with a friend who mentioned she was looking for a nice tea cozy pattern. I had looked at a lot of tea cozy patterns before and immediately knew why she’d been having trouble finding one she liked. They tend to be, well, dated. SoContinue reading “Hygge just got cozier”

Sparkle and shine

Our dishwasher is broken. Has been for months. It’s fair to say I do a lot of dishes having a family of 4 and I’d like to be able to claim expert status! One obvious thing that makes them harder to do is not having enough dish cloths. I always grab a clean one inContinue reading “Sparkle and shine”
