Being A Pattern Tester for Freshstitches

Freshstitches-Monster-Front

I’ve had quite an adventurous summer with lots of things going on. I posted a collection of pictures of some of the projects I had completed in my last post… But there was one project missing. This is because it was a super secret project that I wasn’t allowed to show anyone or tell anyone about. I was asked by my favourite crochet amigurumi (soft plushy toy) designer Stacey Trock from Freshstitches to test one [...]

Photos of Recent Projects

Sleepy Owl made with the Nelson the Owl pattern from Freshstitches.com

A fellow crocheter posted a blog post recently titled Blog? I Have a Blog? and it made me realize how much I have been neglecting my own blog. Of course I know that there has been a HUGE giant gap between this post and my last.. and I have several posts that are drafts.. So I have to get my behind in gear, take the photos that I need and publish them for all of [...]

Cute Crochet Tortoise

Crochet-Turtle-Thumb

I’ve kind of been slacking in the crocheting department. You know when your motivation bar is at -500 and you just cannot be bothered to do anything? Well, that’s been me for the last few weeks. But, I snapped myself out of it last night, and decided to start a new project to re-motivate myself. (Another new project!? Really?! – you) And guess what? It worked! Yayyy! Ok, let’s start with some backstory. There’s this [...]

Yarn’s of Italy 100% Egyptian Cotton Yarn

Lunare-Egyptian-Cotton-Yarn-Thumb

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I clicked the little ad in the sidebar on Facebook for Yarn’s of Italy. I’d never heard of them – it was sheer curiosity. But I went through their site and saw that they had a $20 grab bag of 6 balls of Lunare 100% Egyptian Cotton yarn – PLUS free shipping. Score. *add to cart* It said 100% Egyptian Cotton – Unmercerized. This meant nothing to [...]

Hand Carved Craftwich Crochet Hook

Craftwich-Crochet-Hook-Thumb

One of the benefits to buying online is the feeling that you get when the item that you orders arrives. It’s a pretty magical feeling opening up the box and finally being able to hold your brand new item! I made a few purchases over the past week, and one of them finally arrived! It was my brand new, hand-carved, beautiful, gorgeous crochet hook from Craftwich Creations. It is made from the fallen wood of a [...]

Shopping! New Hook + Fancy Yarn

shopping thumb

I shall have to create a new category for all of these shopping posts! As I mentioned in my last post about the 100% cotton yarn, I have decided that it is time to take this whole crafting business up a notch. When I started to crochet, I did not want to spend a lot of money on supplies because what would happen if I hated it? I would have ended up spending a ton [...]

New 100% Cotton Yarn

cotton-yarn-thumb

Since I’m like totally a professional fiber artist now, it’s time for me to go shopping expand my stash with some high quality yarn. There are a LOT of different materials that are used to make yarn. So far, I have been using acrylic. Before you turn your nose up, roll your eyes and make a noise that conveys your feelings of disgust, it’s important to note that not ALL acrylic yarns are yucky and [...]

Crochet Goose Debacle

Crochet-Gooses-Thumb

I received an order for my Hitching’s Stitchings original crochet goose. This was extremely exciting as this goose was the first item that I designed and created all by myself! She was made as a birthday present for my boyfriend this year (you can read more about her: here). Thankfully, given this new Etsy adventure that I am embarking on, I had the foresight to write down everything that I did, so that if needed, I [...]

Shoe Magnets – Flip Flops

White-Black-Felt-Flip-Flop-Thumb

Back in the fall, I did a craft fair – it was my first one, so I didn’t really know what to make/what to expect. I made felt magnets to sell and it was so much fun! I did bunny rabbit magnets for the craft sale, and at Christmas I did a bunny rabbit and kitty cat magnets for my step sisters. I really enjoy embroidering and there are a TON of awesome embroidered felt magnets [...]
