Never Greener

I unpicked the drawstring channel and removed the twill handle, this bag is taller than usual and it was just flopping around.

“Yes, yes,” I’d rather have a bossy Tom Nook annoyingly flopping around anyways.

Homemade coconut raisin granola with walnuts and chia, slightly under roasted so it’s still got some chew, mixing in the raisins and coconut after it’s out of the oven, but still warm.

Sometimes when we make homemade granola, we take it slow, keeping it natural using local maple syrup and honey, other times we take the absolute easiest route and use regular old store bought pancake syrup. There are no rules.

Catching the end of lilac season, and the beginning of spider season.

Taken before things turned truly green, 60 mph and feeling every bit of this desolation sometimes.

Small scale cute stuff happening.

Pattern: Small Rabbit by Julie Williams of Little Cotton Rabbits.

Only heads. I feel like they have you start your knitting here because it totally endears itself to you, now you’re feeling somewhat obligated to see it through till the end, but not necessarily, it’s cute enough on its own.

Oh, gosh. ♡

Imagining little suits and future sweaters. I didn’t stuff the arms, if you stuff them they’ll stick straight out ..activating airplane mode..

🛩

Tip: If you add stuffing, you can give a little tug on the arm seam when sewing it up, gathering it a bit making the arms curve slightly in ..deactivating airplane mode..

A tiny linen dress, because I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to make pants.

9 inches & 7 inches

I’m gonna say it’s you and me.

In a pink and brown phase and another re-crochet of an old favorite circa 2010. ♡

Flower tawashi pattern from the booklet: Detergent-Free Eco Tawashi (洗剤いらずのエコライフアイデアたわし) by Miyuki Matsui (松井みゆき) / Ondori.

Shetland Hat

Shell lace interrupting my day like nobody’s business. I am mostly a pattern collector – meaning I fall in love hard, buy the pattern quick, stick it on the back burner so I can finish what’s currently on my needles, and then maybe or maybe not come back to it later, but every once in a while I see a pattern drop and I’m like ..yeah, let’s go..

Using scrappy bits from other things in a weird color palette that I wasn’t too sure of, but actually ended up being pretty accurately me. It’s snowing, we’re making bean & tater soup, life’s alright. ♡

Pattern: Vimmer Beanie by Gudrun Johnston.

(Like the pattern states it’s definitely on the slouchy side, brim is comfy cozy fitting, while the lace work is roomy without being too unmanageable.)
