• Woven Wall Hanging with Birch Branch

    November 25, 2014 Kate

    The fun begins when you stop treating weaving as strictly back and forth and start looking at it as a grid that can be worked in any direction. Twisting, knotting, wrapping – if you can think it, try it! I made a wall hanging a while back that I wasn’t totally happy with (blogged here),…

  • Updated Tunisian Crochet Neck Warmer

    November 19, 2014 Kate

    Here we have my second attempt at a Tunisian crochet neck warmer. The first one I made last year turned out more like a balaclava (Oops), and while functional it didn’t feel right. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! I ripped it out and cast on fewer stitches this time, making it looser and shorter. It came…

  • Knit Mens Neck Warmer

    November 12, 2014 Kate

    Alright, here it is, proof that I’m not a completely selfish knitter. Check out the neck warmer on this handsome man. Or just check out this handsome man… Maybe I’m just a selfish knitter because I find knitting for other people stressful. What if it doesn’t fit? What if they don’t like it? What if…

  • Wool And The Gang’s Zion Lion Hat

    November 7, 2014 Kate

    It’s here! Wool and the Gang is on Canadian soil… it’s HERE! I’ve followed UK based WATG for some time now and on multiple occasions come this close to ordering online, but the ridiculous shipping fees have stopped me. So, I can’t tell you how over the moon I was to see a whole wall…

  • Updated Textured Circle Scarf

    November 4, 2014 Kate

    Alright kids, here we go again. One of my first posts and tutorials, Textured Circle Scarf, was in desperate need of a re-knit. I know I haven’t blogged much, but I’m already at that stage where I look back at old posts, particularly “tutorials”, and wince. Since this scarf is easily the most worn thing…

  • Brooklyn Tweed’s Spruce Forest Lace Shawl

    October 28, 2014 Kate

    Well well, it’s been a week or 8 hasn’t it? I’d love to say I’ve been wildly productive in my blogging absence but no, just your general ‘life happens’ stuff. I did however finally finish this Brooklyn Tweed Spruce Forest Estonian lace shawl that I started at the beginning of the summer. I actually completed…

  • A Woven Wall Hanging, Unfinished

    August 24, 2014 Kate

    Well. I don’t love it. In keeping with my intention to blog honestly, I’ve got to admit this is not turning out as I’d hoped. I had this concept built up in my head and I expected it to feel so good when I finished, but here I am cross-legged on the floor staring at…

  • DIY Apartment Decoration Inspiration

    August 12, 2014 Kate

    Like most, I’ve got more Ikea in my apartment than I’d like to admit. When you’re moving frequently and not sure where you’re going to end up, Ikea can make sense. However, an apartment with predictable basics doesn’t have to feel typical. You can always make it your own. I am the proud owner of…

  • Sculpey: A Childhood Love Revisited

    July 22, 2014 Kate

    My best friend, her sister and I used to spend hours making tiny families out of Sculpey. When we were 10 years old, that was a rocking friday night. Moulding miniature people from a pile of coloured clay, probably driving our mothers mad constantly asking them to “put just one more tray in the oven,…

  • DIY Jewellery For Beginners

    July 10, 2014 Kate

    You know when you open your closet to look for an important item to complete an important task and instead discover some awesome materials and a must-complete-now project? Ya. I don’t have any experience making jewelry, so these aren’t terribly well done or exciting, but they were fun to make and are a welcome addition to…
