Amigurumi Superheroes

These are possibly the cutest things I’ve ever crocheted. The patterns are straightforward but I did have some confusion mostly due to my inexperience with amigurumi patterns. I’ve only made one other amigurumi prior to starting this and did not realise working in spiral vs joining in rounds is a thing. The patterns also didn’t have […]

Little Button Loafers Again

This is my go to pattern for baby gifts as it’s quick and easy to make, looks impressive and always well received. This time round, I made it for an ex-colleague’s baby boy. I was a bit rusty at first as I haven’t crocheted in a while but the well-written pattern made it easy to […]

Amigurumi Batman

Phew! The dust is thick on this blog! Haven’t had much time for crafts these few years due to a soul sucking job and life. Now that I’ve a bit of a breather, I’m trying to get caught up in my crafting! I made this batman as a gift for a huge batman fan and […]

iPhoneography

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Hope 2011 is shaping up to be a good year for all of you. Recently I’ve become very interested in iPhoneography – taking pictures with my iPhone. The Hipstamatic iPhone app has been particularly addictive! I’ve also become excessively fond of browsing the popular page on instagr.am (I’m @jenesaisquoi […]

Misty

Has anyone seen the new Kim Hargreaves book? It’s bloody fantastic! I thought Nectar was gorgeous and then Breeze came along and blew me away. Now, there’s Misty which is even better than Breeze! One thing I love about Misty is there aren’t as many peplum designs compared to the previous books. Peplums are pretty […]

Team Rubberhoars iz Ossim

The Ravelympics is here! I took this opportunity to take a break from sweater knitting and pop my shawl cherry with Clapotis (I know, I know, everyone and their grandma have done it already). I’m still doing the increases and will have to speed up a little if I want to do something else before the […]

Pattern: Buttercup Size: XS Yarn: 4.5 x Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy in Green Sage (021) Needle: 3.5mm Modifications: I’m short so I didn’t knit to 38cm for the body; I stopped at about 33cm.
