Bun Bun

Recently on Instagram, I shared a picture of this little bunny. I'd been trying to cut down my yarn stash (bad habit of buying yarn without projects in mind...), but I also realized that I never posted any bunny-related designs despite the name of my blog. So, I whipped up this easy amigurumi over the weekend! Check back soon for the pattern~

First Socks


Socks! This is my first pair finished a few months ago when there was still snow outside, so I can confirm that they are quite cozy.



For this project, I used a basic pattern from Red Heart, worked top down. Overall, pretty happy with my first attempt. I actually bought nine skeins of this yarn in the same colorway (sale got me)... Welp. Time to make more socks?

What I used:
Pattern: Self-Striping Knit Socks #LW1619 by Red Heart Design Team
Yarn: Premier Wool Free Sock and Stripes Yarn (93% Acrylic, 7% PBT; 235 yards/50 grams per skein) in Grand Canyon (approximately 1.5 skeins)
Needles: US 2 (2.75 mm) DPNs

Lemony Scallops


I know, I know. It's been a few months since I last posted... And yes, I'm modeling a beanie in the middle of summer.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember this picture (below) that I shared a while back when I got City Tweed yarn from Knit Picks in Lemon Curd (muted gold), Orca (medium gray), Plush (lavender), and Brocade (royal purple). I wish I had ordered more skeins because this yarn is soft and cozy! It also has a nice sheen to it.


So more about the beanie...

Lunar New Year


2017 is the year of the rooster! It's been exciting to see the work of other artists and crafters as inspired by this year's zodiac animal. With the Lunar New Year quickly coming up, this amigurumi is my last minute take on it. It's pretty small, standing approximately 2½ inches tall, but I think the size is what makes it especially cute.

Yes, I posed my rooster with some red envelopes... Let's hope for good fortune in 2017. 😁

Slouchy Red Beanie

So this hat is pretty much my favorite thing at the moment (pictured above with my Bonlook frames and Pusheen earrings). Really, I've worn it nearly every day since I finished knitting it. I thought about blocking it with a plate to make it more of a beret, but I personally prefer a slouchy beanie style. Only downside with not blocking is that the stitches are kind of clustered together, so you can't see how nice the lace pattern is. Maybe on the next one.

If you're looking for a quick hat with interesting detail, this is it. The pattern is super easy to knit up, and it's available for free over at Ravelry.
