Lacy Crochet Bracelet

Have you ever had an awesome outfit ready to go, but felt that it was missing something? I recently went through my wardrobe and felt it was missing something, a bit of je ne sais quoi. My keen fashion senses quickly realized that the lack of appropriate accessory was the issue. Then like sunlight piercing […]

Lace Crochet Top

Over the last several days I’ve been dedicating my time to finishing this lace crochet top. When I finally weaved in the last end and dunked the finished top into a basin of fiber wash, I almost felt my eyes prick. I’m not gonna lie, it was a challenging project and I struggled. Remember way back […]

A little sneak peek!

You guys, I’m so excited about this I haven’t even taken proper blog post photos yet. Stay tuned!

WIP Wednesday – The Clothing Edition

You know how when you finish a serious project, the kind that challenges your creativity and time management skills, and when it’s over you remember the WIPs that kept piling up in your absence? That’s what happened to me after I finished the Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant. Suddenly I had all this extra time […]

June Socks – Done!

I almost thought I wouldn’t make it. I kept thinking, “But they’re ankle socks!” How could a pair of half socks take so long to make? And with a mesh fabric no less! It’s a bit of a mystery to me. Needless to say I’m happy I finished the socks in time and so very […]

WIP Wednesday

Last week I made an executive decision to scrap the lace crochet top design and start over. I decided to go for the shelled top after fellow crocheter Eleanor (of Harebells Crochet) pointed out that, though the granny square top was her favourite, the shelled top was more in the lace crochet style and would […]

WIP – Lace top…new directions

You know the lace crochet top I’ve been working on, yeah, you know the one. I got past 20 rows before I finally accepted something was off. Somewhere along the way I must have interpreted the crochet chart differently and certain stitches did not happen or they went where they shouldn’t have. I thought, “If […]

Crochet Lace Mandala

Ever since I started working on the lace crochet top, I’ve been practicing openwork with other projects. This is where all those lace crochet magazines finally got my attention. Years ago my mom gave them to me and I (almost) grudgingly took them, thinking I’d never make anything with such fine thread. A few years […]

WIP Wednesday

April Socks A few rounds into the leg of the sock pattern I began to get bored of the seemingly endless single crochet stitches. I was on the train home from work and after one such round, I went off track and started doing something different. I added gaps into the fabric. I guess you […]

WIP Wednesday

Hey hey hey! It’s another Work in Progress update! Last week I got some really great things in the mail. One item was the latest Zoomigurumi crochet pattern book, which I can’t wait to dive into. The other package was yarn, lovely, delicious yarn! This was very needed yarn because without a certain colour I […]
