I'm baaack!

Soo, that thing about posting more in my blog? Yeah, I don't think I've kept up very well with it either. But I've just been so busy. I know, I know, not a good excuse. But it's true!

Apart from working insane hours and in the off-hours trying to have some semblance of a decent private/social life, I've been working away on various projects. Namely, scarves! I recently found a pattern that I ADORE, and after modifying it to make it a bit more narrow, this is what I have:

This is the first one I made. I used Bernat Mosaic yarn in Psychedelic to make this one. I love how the colors came out..it's a lot brighter than it seems in this picture. Sorry for the bad quality. Anyway, everyone that has seen this scarf has LOVED it. It's soft and wears beautifully. I love it to bits.

This is the second scarf. It's the same pattern, same modifications, just a different color of yarn. It's still the Bernat Mosaic. I forget what this color is called, though. It has lots of shades of blue, a bit of gray and some copper and brown. It's very, very pretty, just a bit more sedated than the one above. I made this one for a friend of mine, who has recently dubbed me "CQ". (It stands for Crochet Queen)

Hopefully I'll have more finished projects to share with you soon. I have piles of yarn just begging to be made into lovely things, so it's likely to happen! :)

Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern

 (Check out this handy dandy Pinterest ready graphic I made!) In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, one of the dwarves (Bofur) wore this really, really awesome hat.  I fell in love with it, and decided to see if I could crochet my own version of it.  Well, first I scoured the internet, hoping for a pattern, and when I didn't find one THEN I decided to make my own.  And since I know there are others out there who would love to have this pattern, I'm posting it here! PLEASE NOTE: You may make items and sell them using this pattern, but PLEASE link back to the pattern and credit me as the source. It's only fair! :) The Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern You will need: Red Heart Super Saver (I forgot the actual color name, but it’s brown, okay?)

As Seen on Pinterest - The Retirement Survival Kit

One of my co-workers recently retired. I'm happy for her, because she really deserves it and everything...but I hate that she's leaving me!  I tried to bribe her into staying. I even threatened to lock her in the office and refuse to let her go.  Oddly, she didn't like that suggestion.  Since she was set on this notion of retirement, I immediately began scouring Pinterest for some sort of cute retirement gift for her. I knew I'd find something there, and I was not disappointed! Fairly soon after beginning my search, I came across the 'Retirement Survival Kit'.  (Photo from Pinterest - original pin link ) The pin was a link to an eBay auction, but of course my first thought on seeing it was "I can do that!". So I did.   I really should have taken a better photo of it. But this is all I managed to get. So, uh, ta da! I changed a few of the items around (the original link was from the UK, so some of the items weren't available)

Sakura Season Bokksu

Do you like watching unboxing videos?  I do! I've also decided to try my hand at making a few. I uploaded my latest one to YouTube today, which you can watch below. I did an unboxing of the Sakura Season Bokksu, which is full of absolutely gorgeous (and delicious!) snacks from Japan.  Which snack would you want to try first? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/W-FYsqZCzUY" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube while you're there. I'm trying to post some fun stuff occasionally, and would love for you to join me!
