Knitted amigurumi owl using HiyaHiya Sharp Sock Needles

HiyaHiya Sharps Needles Sock Set Review

I jumped at the chance to review some HiyaHiya Sharps Needles. You remember my wedding shawl? I would not have been able to finish it without a set of HiyaHiyas Sharps. Seriously. See how the nupps get bigger halfway through the hearts at the boarder? I knit the boarder on my regular HiyaHiyas, did a couple of rows of nupps, threw the thing in a corner and ordered new, sharp needles. My goodness HiyaHiya Sharps Needles are sharp. You wouldn't want to step on one. The bigger nupps were made with my sharps, and you can imagine me saying: 'This…

When Travel Knitting is Everyday Knitting

As crafters, we think a lot about Travel Knitting in capital letters - what to pack for a long plane ride and so on. This is travel knitting.

It may not be glamorous, but that's a lot of potential knitting time. I am "lucky" enough to have a long commute. A short walk, a long train ride, and a short train ride before I get to the…

A little amigurumi toy raindrop

How to Crochet Amigurumi Raindrops

All week I've been humming raindrops keep fallin' on my head. All because of these adorable crochet amigurumi raindrops! Summer showers aren't so sweet (especially when you've forgotten your umbrella!) but these wee raindrops are. I crocheted these little guys as an illustration of how an amigurumi's face can change it's whole appearance. Seriously, it makes a huge difference. Check it out: How fun is that gif?? It's a little blurry though, so here's another glamour shot of one of the raindrops: This really shows the size. I've been calling these 'little', and they are compared to, say, an armchair,…

Knitting a Welcome Blanket

Knitting a Welcome Blanket

What if many crafters around the world, knitted and crocheted blankets from 2,000 miles of yarn? And these blankets were displayed in […]
