I have a lot of stuffed animals littered around the house. They are squishy and I love them. Some have homes but I have quite a few recently acquired ones that have nowhere to go. And I figured, why not make a new home for them? I have seen stuffed animal hammocks around the internet, and I thought this was the perfect solution! But instead of buying something pre-made, why not make it myself? It seemed easy enough!
I know it’s late in the season for scarves, but it is never too early to start one for the next season, and this one does take a little time! I wanted to do a block pattern, circular scarf. But I also wanted the blocks to have some unity, so I decided to knit a diamond pattern into each of the large blocks.
I love dice. Every board gamer I know has a collection of dice ranging in type, size, and style. I feel like half of the dice that I’ve collected aren’t even useful… What do you mean I rolled a sheep??!?! I wanted a 6!! For many gamers, the D20 is an iconic symbol as its used throughout the gamer and RPG hobby; from magic the gathering spin-downs to the classic D20 of Dungeons and Dragons. And this got me thinking, what if I made a really big one? Knitting is my comfort zone so a knitted D20 sounded like the perfect project.
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.

The snow has hit the ground in my hometown and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can fully turn my attention toward the holidays, bust out the Christmas ornaments and set up the tree. But truth be told, I have been working on adding my own unique touch to this years holiday with knitted stockings!
Who doesn’t love superheroes? Right now both Marvel and DC have become extremely popular, filled with recognized and beloved characters. I love creating these knitted figures of popular characters. Overall I have made Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Vision, Batman, Harley Quinn, Darth Vader, and Belle. They make wonderful gifts so I have had to part with many over the years.
It had been a while since I picked up my crafting tools. When I went to my closet full of supplies, I noticed a small paper box that I didn't recognize. Inside were old projects and finished products that I had completely forgotten about.
