Hi there! Thanks for reading my blog. This is a blog about my life. I will discuss visual art, music, fiber arts, crochet patterns, and anything else thats going on in my life at the time. I am an art education student at UTM, and I have a serious yarn addiction.
When I’m crocheting you’ll usually catch me curled up on the couch with a cold diet coke drowning in yarn. Most of my patterns are originals. I just grab a hook and some yarn and get going. I’ll post some of my patterns on this blog. For some of my creations I will draw up designs and plans. I especially do that for my cozies. For my cozies with felt embellishments, I use hand drawn stencils. I make a stencil from printer paper and laminate it with packing tape. Then each shape, spooky cats, mustaches, whatever I’m working on are hand cut from felt squares.
Sometimes I lose track of time and crochet for hours. The only thing that reminds me to stop is the aching in my wrists. I do “hand yoga” as I call it to make sure I stretch out. I try to do this every hour or so when I’m working.
I gather inspiration from everything. Everywhere I look I find beauty. I try to capture this beauty in my works. I love nature and being outside. Music also inspires me. My favorite bands to listen to when I’m creating are Hawthorne Heights (especially JT’s solo project), Bayside, and Patent Pending.
