June 2019 Indie Pickup | Eventide Rose Gold Bangle

It is Polish Pickup/Indie Pickup time again! As a "maker", it is my favorite time because I finally get to reveal what I have been plotting in the shadows! June's prompt is "Weather" and I chose a beautiful stormy sunset picture and a wonderfully minimalist setting. I can't wait to wax ecstatic about it!

Taco Tuesday | 2019 Birthday Sale

It is my birthday this month, and to celebrate we are having a sale! I know I am a little tardy, but at least I am making it up to you!

Taco Tuesday | June 2019 Polish Pickup Spoiler

Happy Taco Tuesday! I don't have any fresh projects to share...yet, so I figured I would give you a tiny teaser for next month's Polish Pickup!

The Indie Pickup | Rainbow Reader Pendants

I have been working diligently on a fabulous new item for May 2019's Indie Pickup. It is an off-shoot of the practically-world-famous Polish Pickup, and it is a wonderful themed collaborative that seems to spark creativity every month. May's theme is 1980s, and of course I had to choose something loud from my childhood. I picked Reading Rainbow, and I am so glad I did.


Simple Garter Stitch Afghan | The Never-Ending Project

When you first start knitting, you have these grandiose ideas of cozy sweaters and charming blankets that will be passed down to your great-grandchildren. Then you knit a few (small) items and your realize that shit takes a long damned time. So you continue making things that look like they took some serious commitment, but were actually fairly quick work. Then one day, your hubris gets the better of you and you decide to knit a blanket.



It'll be easy. It's only garter stitch...

Quickie Crochet Purse

I got a new phone (I'm writing this post from said phone) and it doesn't fit in my pocket anymore. I needed a small bag for chapstick and new phone...So I made one!

It was pretty easy. I used Knit Picks Brava and an I hook and did some mystery number of stitches until it looked like the right size. I changed colors for the first time in crochet too, which was neat. I even made a flower to close the top.
I'll let you know if I like it.

*edit: I definitely liked it. With my phone/chapstick/blotting papers in there, it was heavy enough to sit in just the right spot on my hip. And the bag search lady said it was cute! Win Win! The only drawback is that it stretched waaaay out. Live and learn, right?

Be Simple Variations | The Unicorn Scarf

I made this scarf for a dear friend...last year. 2016 has been a giant dick. Tons of polish-related busy + carpal tunnel + buying a house have really cut into my knitting time. It is a major bummer. But I am beyond proud with how this scarf turned out. I used two skeins, and its pretty big and floofy and snuggly and warm. My pals lives in rural Washington, and it snows there.
