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.




Needles: US 8/5mm (I think)

I picked this colorway because it is a rainbow, and the pattern because it is actually a triangle/unicorn horn shape. My friend is unicorny obsessed, so it was only fitting.

What I learned:

I prefer short patterns. This one was pretty easy to follow, but I did have to rip out at least one repeat because I get distracted.

This yarn, while beautiful, might be too delicate for me. I am a bit rough still, and my rhythm isn't perfect. I tore the yarn a few times.

Silk is kinda sticky.

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!

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.
