Knit "Clayoquot" Hat

This is my first fair isle knitting project and I love it! I want to start another one right away! This was a great project if you're a beginner in fair isle like me. Also, the pattern is free! It doesn't get much better :) I intended to make this for my two year old, but it fits my four year old a bit better. So, the next hat I make will be for my little guy.

Pattern is Clayoquot Toque from Tin Can Knits

Shy Guy Plushie

As a request, I made Shy Guy from Super Mario. I loosely followed this pattern from crochet_goods. He took several hours & putting together all of the pieces was tedious work, but worth it!


Someone requested a Pokemon for their son, and when I asked "Which one?" They said, "Oh I don't know any, you pick." I knew I had to make Charmander. (Can you guess which Pokemon I would choose when starting the game?) I found a pattern on the Wolfdreamer blog, where you can find a plethora of Pokemon patterns! I changed it quite a bit, and I am very happy with how it came out!

Crochet Grave Site Comes to Life

For me, it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween. I love decorating and thinking about how I'm going to make my kid's costumes every year. Last year I made a couple little pumpkin dudes you can see one in this post), one to sit in my apartment and one for my mom's work desk. Even though it's August, I'm getting excited for my favorite time of year!

I came across a little grave pattern with a zombie hand from (little warning before you click, some of the work is a bit graphic) and I knew I had to make it! It was a fun, quick project that I finished in one day - Not bad!!
