Happy Halloween!

I tell you, I had no idea that school was gonna take up so much of what used to be my crochet and general craft time. But it has.
So i am sad to say that this is all you get for a Halloween yarnbomb.

Yep. One sad lone pumpkin on a cyclo.
I was so busy organizing my learn to crochet night (and I got sick) that Halloween yarnbombing totally got missed.
But I did make a ton of cute pumpkins for my friends and loved ones.

And got to carve an adorable mini pumpkin that I won at Oldfield orchards.
All in all it was a great Halloween, even if I didn't really get to yarnbomb. It was still very crafty.

Let's Crochet! learning to crochet with Spencer Diamond at Sarah's Place!

I don't know how many of you know Sarah Kramer, but if you're vegan, I imagine you have heard of her.
I ran into her at her adorable little vegan curio shop downtown after my gf's family had bought her vegan chocolate bars from there. Needless to say, those Jokerz have become an addiction.

You may remember Sarah from my posts where I give her stuff, like the Sarah doll or the crochet coral reef. This is because she is a wonderful person and deserves cute things.

The reason for this post isn't to tell you how awesome Sarah is (tho she is!). It's to tell you that in her awesomeness, she has helped me arrange a learn to crochet night!
That's right! For 4 dates through to the end of the year, I will be teaching crochet and how to's on little patterns I have made.

The first night is this Thursday, October 25th, 6-8 pm at Sarah's Place in Market Square.
It should be a blast! I am really looking forward to spreading around my craft and teaching some real post apocalyptic survival skills (that's what I call crochet sometimes).

Long time no crochet

You know, I have still been crocheting.
I just recently finished the piece that is going to WoollyPoles in New Zealand.
I am always super excited to be apart of projects like this one. I feel like one little cog in a great yarn bombing machine.
(I apologize for photo quality. I really need to stop using my ipod...I don't even know the resolution!)

I decided to go with coral reef because I have become obsessed with it (as I have mentioned before). I decided to go with something I hadn't tried before.

I sewed a seaweed type crochet piece into the background before adding the coral. Oh wow did it work out well! I love when I can impress myself with my work.

I mailed it off this week, so soon it shall go to live in its new home in New Zealand! This whole project has been great. be sure to check out other yarn bombers progress here!
