I have a couple designs that feature a zipper and one of the comments that I get the most is “I can’t sew, so I probably can’t do this.”. Well, I’m here to tell you that this is one of the EASIEST ways to add […]

Last month I shared my daughter’s room reno. It was while decorating it that I noticed how easily I could incorporate different yarn-type crafts into the design. Knowing that the rest of the house was to follow suit, a new series for this blog was […]

I don’t have a basket problem… YOU have a basket problem! Ok, sorry. That was super defensive of me. I will admit, I am seriously addicted to crocheting these little baskets right now.

Christmas is only 9 weeks away. Yep. I just went there. But it really is my favorite time of year! Especially now that I have kids. Big M is 4 and is right into the whole Santa thing, so we are having a blast with that! Little M will only be 5 months old, so she won’t know what’s going on, but will be fun for us none the less. We really feel lucky to have our families and each other!We all know that not everyone is as fortunate as we are. A reportby the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness and the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness estimates that 235,000 individuals, youth and families experience homelessness per year. You can read more on that here. So, when Sonya of Blackstone Designs asked if I would like to participate in a Crochet Mitten Drive, I jumped at the chance to help in what little way I can. I designed a pattern that will be free for you to use to make and donate mittens to whichever cause is close to your heart this season.

Decorating With Yarn | My Daughter’s Room

For anyone who knows me in “real life”, they know that I love to decorate and renovate my home just about as much as I love to crochet. Possibly even slightly more *gasp*!! When I was a teenager, all my friends were buying Seventeen Magazine. […]

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Gauge Swatches | A Comparison

Yeah, I get it. Talking about gauge swatches can be about as exciting as watching paint dry. You know you are supposed to do them, but you might tell yourself you don’t have time, or you don’t like the hassle, maybe you figure you are good if you go up/down a hook size or you get so excited to start that you just forget! Maybe you don’t really know what gauge is or how to make a swatch. Well, I decided to conduct an experiment! I asked several different Designers and Crocheters to make me a gauge swatch using this criteria: They needed to use Red Heart Soft and an I (5.5 mm) hook and take a picture of their 4″x4″ gauge swatch for comparison. Simple enough! Right? Before I share the results with you below, I want to take a quick second to share how to check for gauge on your project.
