Shopping around I found this sweater and a fine use crochet indeed! There’s no pattern or anything. I just thought it was lovely inspiration for how you might fit your own work into everyday items. But if you want to check out this sweater for yourself, visit the Shein website. It has a bit of romance in it, does it not?

Knitting on Your Mind?

Were knitting a royal court to preside over, I could totally see the queen rocking this wig. Hell, I’d do it now if I thought I could get away with it. I’d probably be arrested for assault with a deadly weapon when I accidentally poke someone in the eye while getting off the bus but hey…you’ll do anything for fashion.

Momma’s Gotta Brand New Bag!

With the weather starting to warm up I’m left feeling a bit down hearted. No cold. No snow. No more crocheting, right?

Who wears beanies and scarfs in May besides homeless people in late 70’s TV cop dramas? NO ONE!

So I’m on a mission to find stuff to keep the creative juices flowing even in the dead of Summer! I’ll knit on the beach while sucking down a margarita and be glad of it!

Starting with something like this! A purse! Simple, chic, and incredibly gifting worthy. But make one for yourself first. You’ve earned it.

Everything is Better in Soft Focus

I love a good old fashioned chunky sweater as much as the next person. But with warmer weather approaching you’ll need something a little less Eskimo and a whole lotta cute.

Perfect for layering, this Lion Brand soft focus v-neck is unique and very Boho. Also the pattern is free!

Mini Dress, Maximum Awesome!

Beautiful! And the girl ain’t bad either!

Lecrochetart on Etsy is rocking this mini dress and more on their shop. $510 seems totally reasonable considering yours would made to order in silk if you choose and in 30 days.

How does one accomplish this in 30 days?! I envision a selling of one’s soul or another x-men origin story in here somewhere.
