Spring is coming soon, isn’t knit?! ~ Knitted Rainbow Scarf Pattern!

I started this post as one of my Sunday Snaps type posts! But then the day (and week) got away from me! I’ve been working on planning my cat Sugar’s first birthday party (let’s just say it’s going to be SWEET!), then I had to pop to the dentist yesterday to have a cavity filled – all that candy finally caught up with me!! Naturally it was one of the most difficult cavities they’ve seen in a while so I was there most of the afternoon… SIGH! 😀

So with all that, I forgot to update this blog and my other social media (I’m still alive friends)! Anyways, I spent most of the weekend stuck inside during yet ANOTHER snow storm finishing this guy:

He’s cute, colourful, and ready to drive winter FAR FAR AWAY! It’s been a while since I’ve worked on an actual knitting project, and I zipped right through it in about a day and then managed to screw up the BIND OFF of all things (usually my favourite part!) Yarn it all! So I had to frog it back a few rows.

I used Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn, which I loved working with. This was a VERY simple garter stitch pattern (knit stitch all the way through), done horizontally:

  • CO 80 (or more, depending on how long you want your scarf)
  • K in your first colour for the entire row, and repeat for 4 rows.
  • Switch up your colour and repeat rows until done, and bind off. Total is 24 rows across (4×6)

I didn’t have any white yarn to do the clouds, so I sewed up cloud plushies instead and hot glued the cute little eyes, checks, and mouth!

Now I’m ready for some brighter days! xoxo

Sunday SNAPS!

Here are some pics of what I was up to this week! Probably easier to share my craft-ventures in a sum up post rather than a ton of posts.

This was a good but very busy week… and it was FLIPPIN COLD here! COLDER THAN MINUS 40 celsius this morning with windchill (for the American folks conveniently that’s also -40 Fahrenheit!) Now I’m from Winnipeg, Canada, which has at times been colder than Mars, but that’s still not something you ever get used to! So I’ve been stuck inside most of the week (darn ;)).

Luckily that left lots of time for cleaning…

I had to shuffle things around to fit some of my new creations and new books!

And did lots of creating:

Rainbow felt necklace
Oh hello felt Hello Kitty!

Got a delivery of new yarn so I got seriously back into knitting as well this week!

My new yarn is so bright and thick! Going to be a gigantic rainbow blanket!

Also did some decorating around my little pink house! Valentine’s decorating for most is my year round decor so I’m on cloud 9 stocking up on all sorts of goodies!!

That was a pretty busy week! Could’ve used an extra day in there for sure. Time to do it all again! 😀

Sending RAINBOWS to brighten up your Monday!

The sky is FALLING! Not actually I suppose, but my city got 15 centimeters of SNOW overnight AND it’s first thing Monday morning! Sigh…… no wait! That just calls for extra rainbows!

So meet my colourful new buddy who I created to give cuddles and get us through today!

He’s made of felt and is stuffed full of happiness (okay stuffing…. but nothing makes me happier!) I’m sticking him in my purse today and he’s guaranteed to make everything just dandy!

A brand new year to fill with all sorts of happiness!!!

Well we did it!!! 2019 is HERE!

I spent New Years Eve enjoying a bunch of leftover Christmas treats, making a quick colourful 2019 headband, and chasing after my cat who kept stealing the pompoms!

My headband! Full of my favourite materials: glitter, stickers, pompoms (also Sugar’s favourite!), and rhinestones!

I had so much fun, but ended up falling asleep at 9 – oops!!! I was trying to stay up, and I was even going to set an alarm just in case I fell asleep but then fell asleep before I could do THAT! Hahaha!

I ended up watching fireworks this morning (on Youtube ;))!

My one big goal for this year is to CREATE EVERY SINGLE DAY! Even if it’s just a little bit of something. I dream of having a magical house full to the brim with colour, fabrics, knitted things, craft projects, and the constant smell of fresh baked goodies ~ my own enchanted little paradise!! And then post my creations every day (or so) here on this blog! I hope this challenge will allow me to be productive and constantly learn new skills!

I also just want to be HAPPY this year, fight through my anxiety, be healthy, and as bright and unique as can possibly be!

The first sunrise of 2019! The colours were already cooperating with me!!

2018 was my absolutely best year ever, and 2019 is guaranteed to be EVEN BETTER! Can’t wait to enjoy it with you all! xoxo

Day 20 of the 30 day blog challenge!

Day 20 – What Makes You Happy

This seems like a great topic for Christmas!! SOOO many things make be unbelievably happy, I can’t JUST pick one thing! When life gets tough it’s good to remember all these great things.

Pink, rainbows, BRIGHT colours! Baking! Oodles of frosting! Candy and cake and cookies!

My cat! Unicorns! MAGIC!

My happy pink little house! Flowers! Blasting music and dancing around with the curtains open for all to see!

Hello Kitty, collecting plushies, toys, and kawaii things! Video games! Things that remind me of my happy childhood!

Texting silly memes with friends! Looong walks in the forest! Dressing up, especially in BIG POOFY DRESSES! Hot rainy days and splashing barefoot in puddles! Creating cute things for other people! The craft aisle! Taking pictures! Kindness and silliness… really it goes on and on. You may “grow up”, but keep loving what you love to the extreme.

Hope your Christmas is filled with all sorts of things that make YOU happy as can be! 🙂
