My Firefox Halloween Costume!

My Firefox Halloween Costume!

I got a little over excited with  Halloween this year, and ended up only getting to go out once in this costume. My bioengineering professor decided that as 21 year old college students we really needed to have a midterm the day after Halloween (makes a lot of sense). So I didn’t get to enjoy … Continue reading

So I know it’s not quite Headband Season yet

So I know it’s not quite Headband Season yet

But I couldn’t help myself. I knit this last night as I caught up on some American television (clearly taken advantage of my last few days in Italy). This is an extremely easy pattern, and my first on circular needles woo! Get ready for some webcam fashion shoot! I’ll try and take high quality photos … Continue reading

Selling pieces/patterns

Okay knitters! This is a very serious post, I need commentors! Whenever I knit something really cool all of my friends want me to knit one for them. They often offer to pay for it, but they still don’t realize how much time it can take- I do NOT have time to knit 6 people … Continue reading

Designing a Lace Chart

Designing a Lace Chart

I’m currently knitting and designing a bathing suit. The middle middriff part is going to be lace. This is the most unique piece I have tried to design so far, and I decided to go all out and create my own charted lace. This is the first time I’ve created my own chart and tried … Continue reading

Oh my goodness, so I actually have two completely finished projects I’ve been putting off writing up patterns for, and taking awkwardly posed photos in. Seen above is an off the shoulder chunky sweater I made for spring, and I knit a beach cover up for the summer. I am so frustrated with myself! I … Continue reading

Okay: I’m starting to question my decision to post posts like this one. I know my blog followers/hap stance readers are often older, responsible, amazing people. People who probably don’t make slightly scandalous Indian costumes, and will never have a need for scandalous Indian costumes. For those readers: There are those of us who are often … Continue reading

… My sister and I made duct tape dresses

So we actually did this about a year ago for a friend’s ABC party. If you don’t go to college parties very often that stands for Anything But Clothes. The dress code is simple, you can cover yourself in anything but clothes. Popular choices are always trash bags, sheets, or beer boxes. For girls there’s a … Continue reading

… I knit a sweater for my corgi

My dog is an adorable sausage-like corgi named Sophie. She absolutely hates dog clothes so I’ve never tried to knit anything for her before, but they make her so cute! So they’re at least nice for pictures. This pattern is very simple. It is a cape like sweater and the main piece of knitting ends … Continue reading
