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 […]

Crochet Lemon Earrings - Pops de Milk

Crochet Lemon Earrings

I love spring in Toronto. After such harsh winters, spring is especially pretty here. It is the gateway to summer with bright and cheery colours, and the sweetness in the air from all the blooming flowers! Lemons happen to be bright, cheery, and fragrant, which is why I was compelled to make these super adorable […]

December Socks To End The Year Of The Sock

Another year comes to an end and just in time I have finished the last pair of the Year of the Sock crochet challenge – the December Socks. I have to say, this is my favourite pair of socks. Why? Because they have a story to tell with all the different yarns, and after months […]

Crochet Mini Pumpkin

Suddenly the air is crisp, the leaves are turning orange, and PSLs (Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes) are in bloom. It’s that period between Thanksgiving and Halloween when Canadians get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather and at Pops de Milk HQ we are not immune to this. In fact, we’ve decided October is our favourite […]

Crochet Summer Beanie

For some people the harsh rays of the sun are a welcome treat but for others, going outside┬ámeans bathing in sun screen and covering every inch of exposed skin. I fall somewhere in between this group of people, applying sun screen to my face (mostly) and occasionally wearing a wide brim hat but more often […]

May Socks

Finished the second sock late last night while listening to a very cute and charming historical romance novel (Courting Trouble by Deeanne Gist). The story is set in the late 1800s and as I worked on my sock I thought of handmade clothes, in particular socks. I’m sure all socks at the time were knitted […]

April Socks

I did it! I finished another pair of socks in one month! It’s funny, when I tell people that I’ve decided to make a pair of socks every month this year, hearing the words come out of my mouth, I think to myself, “Did I really sign up for that? What is wrong with me?!” […]

WIP – April Socks

After the astonishing success of my March socks, I made a solid decision to continue crocheting a pair of socks each month. It’s a very daunting decision and I am still questioning it myself – I’m either doubtful of my skills or overly ambitious, there’s no happy medium. But the choice has been made and […]

Crochet March Socks

The first time I attempted to crochet socks I got lost, first in the toe and then the heel. The pattern was a basic single crochet stitch all the way through and yet the first sock turned out so loose and baggy around the ankle and it just looked and felt like something I would […]

Banana Slippers – Part 2

Continuing from where we left off last week, in this post I’ll share the steps to make the heel and banana peel segments (ankle). Grab your half (“eaten”) banana and let’s get these slippers ready to wear! Click here for the first part of the pattern. Materials -approx. 100 grams worsted weight yarn in yellow […]
