If there’s anything I’ve discoveredwith crochet, it’s that you’ve gotta make your own experiments and figure out for yourself what works best. Almost no one will have done what you’re doing with that stitch (or if they have, they certainly didn’t put it online).

ah, so my single chain eggplant is valid?

guess who went to the yarn store........

it's me!!!!!!!!

i'm vv excited

didn't buy the cotton candy looking ones because i don't have enough money and didn't know what i would use it for

bought that last tweed looking one because dad keeps whining asking about me making him a christmas gift

(fucked up the last time i posted it. sorry)

do i need to make a sideblog for my knitting? i mean, my updates are so far and few between that i shouldn't--right?

today, in a fit of self care, I decided to make a little crochet dice bag 

it holds 3 or 4 normal sets but i'm gonna use it for my tiny dice!

hello and welcome to stress knitting with delilah. this is the first part of my 10 stitch blanket that i've definitely fucked up but i assume once it gets bigger it'll be okay??? (she said, looking at how her life is mirroring the blanket she's knitting)

My amazon purchase came in so now I won’t tangle up literally all of my yarn!!!

Knitting makes me happy!! It's so Zen and you can make really cute things 😊

oh damn you got me i absolutely love knitting and i love being in the middle of a project. just far enough in that casting on seems like a dream from far away, and casting off isn't even a glimmer in my mind yet. i love that section because it's just easy to feel so productive.

seriously considering starting knit commissions here on waterfall bc I’m pretty sure y’all would actually appreciate the work as opposed to people I’ve knit things for in the past. might be an interesting use of that commissions market when it gets off the ground...

hey guys look at what I made!!!!! it came off the needles today and I wove in most of the ends. blocking comes tomorrow. I’m so excited!!

its the hearts of pride cowl. the pattern was written by a friend of mine. 

i wanna spin my own yarn from wool i buy from a local farmer and live in a house with a garden and then sit with Spider on the porch while they crochet and i knit sweaters for our dogs. and cats, though i feel like the dogs would be more receptive to sweater wearing.


guys look what came in the mail for me!!!!! now i can actually figure out if my gauge is right while i'm knitting!

to be true to my once strict theme, did y'all hear that ravelry banned support of 45?!?! I'm excited!

okay but, I was thinking of something fun we could do. Ready? 

Reblog this with traits or concepts or aesthetics that you feel in your soul and you feel like they portray you. AND. I. WILL. DRAW. YOU. 

it could be stuff like “soft, glitter, rainy days, horns, femme, smol, bunny ears, messy long hair, blue and pink” and I’ll try to capture that or whatever it makes me feel :^) it will have hooman basic structure (maybe) but it will be a little caricaturesque creature :3 

okay worst case nobody reblogs and best case i get to do like 35 drawings cause that’s how many active users I perceive around here ehehe 

Got tangled up w/ my yarn dealer. About to start the Hearts of Pride Cowl! I've had my eye on this pattern ever since people started testing it (and I'm most definitely not good enough to pattern test). So happy to see it up on ravelry!*

my newest yarn purchase! i have a problem

the color is called "seabreeze" and i got it at the farmer's market today. i think i'm going to make a hat, or a lacy scarf. it's only 250y so it'll need to be small

the stand i bought it from had a small child who showed me some very cute magic tricks
