Looking around the internet, I couldn’t find any patterns for knitted meeples that I really liked. So, the next logical step, was to make my own! This patterned turned out to be much more complex than I had anticipated, and I made some extra work for myself by trying to avoid sewing but I’ll get into that later. I absolutely love the result and it’s such a great accent piece and mini pillow! I can’t wait to accidentally leave it somewhere and find my cat trying to fit perfectly on top of it.

While embroidery is not one of my typical mediums, it is something I’ve always been excited to get into. Continue Reading →
I adore knitting. I have since I was a child and it was often joked that I am an old soul because of the hobbies I had growing up. Also, the way I talked. Also, because I’m pretty sure I’m an old soul. But, due to my love for the hobby, I seem to be the recipient of yarn donations for which I am extremely grateful because the hobby can end up being a bit expensive. I think I could fill a bathtub full of yarn. Which, kind of sounds fun… But I found myself with an armful of yarn made for baby-targets product projects, so I thought, why not try to make a blanket.
