Granny Square Day

Today is Granny Square Day, and the idea behind it is that you create and/or post a picture of a granny square online, so that there is a virtual granny square blanket across the internet. This wonderful lady created the day, and I thought it’d be fun to bring out the rainbow granny square blanket I made for Sarah.


I’m also trialling some little backdrops that I cut from old calendars, this is one of the winter scenes.



Sarah assures me she is “very cosy!” at the moment.

Anyways, see ya!


A Burst of Yellow

This little yellow pouch came free with a crochet magazine, and it looked too cheerful not to make.


The pattern uses feature rows of crossed trebles (doubles for Americans), which is a stitch I love.


The magazine also came with 12 stitch markers, which all fit nicely into the pouch.


The turquoise shell button was also supplied.



If you own the magazine and haven’t made this yet, I warn you that the buttonhole that is specified in the pattern is too small for the button, so make your buttonhole a stitch or two wider than specified.

I do have a lot of yarn left over, so I may make a miniature jumper with the remains.

Anyways, see ya!



I thought I’d do something different today, and give you guys a little look inside the book I use to record all my creative ideas. Please don’t steal any of these designs, although you may take inspiration from them, crediting me where you can. Thanks!


The very bright cover, which I really like, I believe it came free with a magazine.


This page is where I planned the Occamy crochet pattern, and you can see there may be a few moreĀ Fantastic Beasts crochet creatures to come.


These are some crochet wreaths in the works, most of the things to go on them still need colours worked out.


Above is where the Three Broomsticks was planned out. I also plan on making Madam Malkins’, but it’s still in early stages.


I took inspiration from the Millennium Falcon and the Rampion (from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer) in this idea. I still want to design the interiors, as this is mostly the structure of the project.


And here are some more embroidery ideas. The pencil ones are yet to be confirmed, but the ones in purple will go ahead. Not sure when, though, because as you can see, there is a lot I want to do.

I started this book only recently, and have found it very helpful for remembering ideas I come up with. It’s also much easier to modify a design in a book than while it’s being made, particularly if you’ve done half of it already!

Anyways, see ya!


Red Riding Hood

I didn’t really have a use in mind when I made this cloak, apart from ‘just to see if I can’. I guess sometimes you do need those sort of projects, though.


It clasps in the front with a simple hook and eye, and it’s bordered with a darker red yarn.


The swirling designs on the back are surface crochet, and I’m really happy with how they turned out! They work their way onto the hood too.



The hood has a gap in the back for Sarah’s hair to go through, and it’s also not as bright as the pictures make it look!



I love this snowfall effect, I’ll definitely have to use it more often.

Anyways, see ya!


The Little Hufflepuff

Recently, I finished my first item of clothing entirely knitted on toothpicks.


Knitting on toothpicks makes things just the right scale for Sarah, although it can get fiddly sometimes.


This scarf was done in moss stitch, just because I love the look and feel of it.


A certain magizoologist was spotted in Diagon Alley wearing the scarf, so it’s already quite popular in the wizarding community.




Even among droids! (Sidenote, I reckon BB8 is a Hufflepuff.)

Anyways, see ya!
