FO Friday: Edith Hat

Get a head start on Halloween!

I’m starting to stock up on these hats. Because last year, I was crocheting at maximum capacity to keep up with demand!

The most popular item during Halloween season last year were these Edith hats. It was getting made in all sizes!

Avoid the rush and order Edith hat (or any other hat) here any time of the year!

Black Tourmaline Hat

I felt like knitting a hat out of a yarn I got a while back. It probably took me longer to find a pattern/design to knit than it took for me to actually make the hat. (Crocheter problems, lol!)


This pattern is super easy to follow and I just love the unique look of the finished product! This would make a great beginner project.

  • Pattern from: Caitlin ffrench
  • Yarn: Puppy Bergen (??? some imported yarn I scored from a craft swap)
  • Needle: 8.0 mm Clover Takumi bamboo double pointed knitting needles from Clover USA

Charlotte Square

We recently bought a new dining set, and found a perfect centerpiece at the thrift store. This created a need for something to protect the table from the glass edge of the bowl. It was a perfect chance to make the Charlotte square from!! (link below)


I didn’t complete the last part since I didn’t want it to be too large for my table. After blocking, the square ended up being 20 inches.

This kind of beauty does not come “cheap.” Like the designer’s Sophie’s Universe CAL, the instructions need a bit more focus and you may not be able to recall what happens on your show. But the result makes pausing Netflix well worth it!

  • Pattern from: Dedri Uys
  • Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in Aran and Light Grey; Caron Perfect Match in Lavender
  • Hook: 5.0mm Soft Touch crochet hook from Clover USA

Updated Lupo the Lamb

The creator of these Lalylala dolls recently released a pattern update for Lupo! It simply improved the body, making the bobbles closer together and the seam is now straight!

I personally love this new texture. It sacrifies an inch or two off his height, but it’s still as cuddly as ever!!

Yoda Prop Set

I just wanted to quickly share a recent order, a photography prop set. This worked up faster than I thought it would. Well, it is for a newborn!

Making Lemons for National Stress Awareness Month

April is National Stress Awareness month! I am celebrating Craft Yarn Council style, and I am making lemon stress balls!

This month, we take note of what causes us stress and rid of them in a healthy way. Standing in a slow line? Take it out on a lemon while you wait! Be aware of what stresses you out and find a healthy outlet. My go-to is crocheting, but other crafts work for me too. I try to scrapbook and knit. Whatever floats your boat, maybe you enjoy floating on a boat!


Keep in mind that having a hobby does not mean the stressor goes away permanently. if your taxes are stressing you out for example, settle them ASAP. Neighbors getting on your nerves? Talk to them about the issue, and move on to the proper authorities if they’re not cooperative. Do something to help the situation, constantly running away from it does not always help.

Want to crochet lemons too? The pattern I’m using is linked below.

Check out the hashtag #stitchawaystress on social media to see what others are making for National Stress Awareness month!

  • Pattern: Twinkie Chan’s Lemon
  • Yarn: Loops and Threads Impeccable in xxx; Red Heart Super Saver in Lemon
  • Hook: Clover Soft Touch 4mm

Moogly’s Leaping Stripes Line

Tamara Kelly from Moogly recently released a new item in her Leaping Stripes design, the Mersmerizing Mini Bag!

Mine came out to a cute size of 8×11 inches. Small enough to put valuables in for trips to the beach, or as a dress-up accessory for your little cutie!

Mesmerizing Mini Bag

The pattern is very easy to understand, as always. Once you get the hang of this stitch, you can easily get into a rhythm and finish up this project quickly. This stitch can also be made as a throw/blanket, a larger bag, and even a hat. All of these can be found in the Mooglyblog website.

Want one but don’t crochet? This bag is available my shop for ordering and customization!

Magic Rainbow Blanket

I have finally finished Luna’s blanket! And photos are finally here!

For this blanket, I used Moogly’s Magic Rainbow Baby Blanket pattern. I added enough squares to make it fit a twin size bed. Used various yarns like Red Heart Super Saver and Vanna’s Choice. Pretty much whatever I seemed to have enough of in my stash. For my full list, click here. Again for this project, I used my favorite hook, Furls Odyssey.


I altered the last couple rounds of the square so I don’t have any ends to weave in, I just crocheted over each color change. The only sewing in I did were the ends after joining each square to another.


This pattern is pretty easy. You don’t need much experience in crochet. As long as you know how to read written patterns, you’ll be fine. The squares are easy to memorize once you get the hang of it, maybe 5-10 squares for me.

Mermaid Tail Blanket

This project I actually regret not doing sooner. The box of yarn I intended to use served as our nightstand for a few weeks.

The blanket went along faster than I thought it would! It only took a few days to complete and used only a little over half of the yarn I expected to use. The pattern could not be any easier to follow. (project info below) Great last minute project!

I’m not usually one for words, but this project inspired a yarn review in the making! After finishing the fin, I could not get over how squishy it is so far!
