Brighten the Black

In a mad rush of inspiration, I’ve been doing a little crochet lately.

“I wonder what these weird bowl things will be?” I hear you ask.

Well, they turned into headphone covers for my very black, very boring headphones.

I wanted to use some yarn left over from a Mollie Makes kit, but I barely had enough for one cover, so the one below kinda matches the one above.

At the start of each new stripe, I tried crocheting into the back loop to make this ridge effect in between stripes. The idea came from Crochet by RedAgape, who used this on one of her patterns, I can’t remember exactly which one. I really like the effect when I can remember to join in the new yarn in the back loop instead of both loops!

Anyways, see ya!

Project Roundup

I’ve been spending a lot of time rolling paper into bowls, ready to be filled with teeny portions of cereal.

The cornflakes box printable is one I found online, if it’s yours please tell me so I can credit you!

I’ve also made the cereal boxes as well as some waffle boxes. I still need to fill the bowls with cereal, and I want to make a waffle machine as well as some waffles, though I’m not sure how I’ll do that yet.

On the side, I also made this thank you card for a librarian friend of mine, and I love the design. I added some leftover bookshelf printable to the envelope, too, because matching cards and envelopes look really nice.

Anyways, see ya!

Shorts with Pockets

As Sarah only has one pair of summer shorts, I decided to make her a few more pairs, and I wanted to try and put pockets in them.

For my first attempt, I’m pretty happy with how neat it is. The pocket is, however, a little small.

The shorts were also made differently, to allow for the pockets, so they are fastened with Velcro at the back.

I love how tailored and smart they look, especially in a plain cotton.

I have been experimenting with making the pockets larger, so she can put more than a sonic screwdriver in them, but I haven’t quite cracked it yet.

Anyways, see ya!

Spaghetti!

The pasta has been cooked…

…and the sauce has been made…

IMG_3230_1

…ready for Sarah’s first attempts at cooking savoury dishes: spaghetti!

I made three little servings of pasta with sauce on top, so I can use this dish at the Three Broomsticks as well.

I also made some uncooked pasta, and a serving of pasta that doesn’t have sauce on, for cooking pasta or just-been-served pasta.

I love the little basil leaf on top, it’s the cutest little garnish. Our next dish to attempt might be waffles, though the first trial didn’t go very well. We might need to try pancakes before going back to waffles, I think we’re still working out the waffle iron.

Anyways, see ya!

Guess what book I bought recently.

IMG_3220_1

*over-excited squealing* I’ve only been waiting two years for this beautiful book, and it’s finally here!

IMG_3222_1

Kingdom of Ash is about 100 pages longer than Winter, at 980~ compared to Winter‘s 824 pages, making KoA my longest novel.

It came with this promotional bookmark, which has the entire series on the back.

You can see it on my shelf at the bottom of the white stack in the middle, looking gorgeous. I can’t wait to start reading it!

Anyways, see ya!
