This may fit a child better than a mature woman, but it’s still adorable nonetheless!
Thanks again to Susanna for being my model and to Olivia for being the assistant photographer!
These wonderful little guys are available for sale at my storenvy! Except for the tie-dye blue one. He was bought by a friend of mine. They’re all varying sizes due to the yarn I used, but each was constructed the same way.
One of the pieces up for sale on my store, the Blue Rose Headband is sure to be a one-of-a-kind item for your wardrobe this winter! The headband part is knitted, while the roses are crocheted.
Thanks to my lovely friend Susanna for modelling this for me. We took the photos inside because… it was cold outside and me, the assistant photographer (friend Olivia), and Susanna didn’t want to go out.
This is my mom’s Christmas present for this year- a pair of fingerless gloves taken from a Japanese book called “編み地を楽しむリストウォーマー”. Or, translated, “Fun with Wrist Warmers.” It’s by Kotomi Hayashi and contains a dozen or so cute wrist warmer patterns, including this one.
Except when you compare my finished product to the one in the book (the red one), it’s obvious mine seems small… Or is it just because my hands are bigger? Oh, well. It fits me (a little snugly, sure), so it’ll likely fit my mom, who has much smaller hands than me.
I made this blanket for my mom’s birthday back in April. It came to her late because of the amount of colors I had to work with. A few things I learned about this:
- Surface crochet sucks.
- I love block-y graphs that don’t change every row.
- Donald Duck is adorable.

The thing I love about dyed yarn- the things you make from it don’t look exactly the same! I was inspired by Portal (still one of my favorite video games to this day) and successfully dyed it to produce the bright colors you see here. I attempted it previously but the colors came out extremely muted- something I didn’t want.
I grabbed this pattern from a friend’s Japanese knitting book. It’s been my go-to sock pattern. I adjusted it slightly so it turned out to be more like ankle socks than it did crew socks. My first ever attempt at socks was a Japanese sock pattern, and it’s been my favorite ever since.
