Today my friend Maria, co-creator of R.I.P. Clothing, came over. We decided to have a crafting day. We were gonna break out the sewing machines and kick it old skool. Turns out my sewing machine doesn’t work. Dumb. Instead I taught Maria how to crochet! We made hats, which is how I learned to read a crochet pattern, and how to make anything useful. We used this pattern.
Yeah, we cute.
Needless to say, I think Maria picked it up really fast and did a great job! 🙂 She seems excited to have another crochet day soon!
Note: Sweet, talking Shaun of the Dead figure in the back. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
A week ago or so I decided I needed a little draw string bag to throw in my purse to carry my phone charger and some ear phones for work. I hunted and hunted and found a pattern I really liked: Work Your Way Up String Bag. I discovered it was way too big for what I needed but I liked the pattern and stuck with it anyway. Unfortunately I ran out of the main color yarn I was using (I swear, it looked like I had more than there was!) so I cut it short and now I used it to store all my trading card games (remember: I am a nerd) for transporting to friends’ houses! 🙂
Look at this guy. Is he not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? Made by Little Pooper, this Yoshi may be one of the cutest and most well made amigurumi I have ever seen. Too cute!

I’m sure all you nerds out there have had someone ask you to help fix their computer. It’s happened to me, and I’ve even asked around a bit myself. As soon as saw this cross stitch on Mr. X Stitch I knew I had to post it here. Made by Vonkrankipantzen.

Hello all! I’m back with some of my own crochet again! 🙂 It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been busy working on larger projects. I did, however, take a break recently to make myself a cute pair of mary jane slippers using scrap yarn.
I didn’t have any buttons, so temporarily they are being held closed with a bow made from cotton yarn. They’re bright, fun, and a quick crochet!
