This thing is oooold but I never posted it and it’s an egg, so topically easter appropriate?

Crocheted Yoshi egg, for my Gijinka Yoshi cosplay. No pics of that yet, but it’s almost done!

The last of the headband set! (1)(2) Finally comfy with cables, I decided to go big or go home. This is again off of Ravelry, the Criss-Cross Cable Headband. Go show it some love.

Later this week: Hats. And some Amis should be showing up again soon! Questions, comments, and commissions always cool, drop an Ask or email me at yarnmonger.creations@gmail.com.

So I started with this headband, and then I wanted to learn how to do cables (the braid pattern). So, I went on Ravelry and found this pattern.

You’ll notice if you click the link that they look completely different. That’s because I use acrylic yarn and am terrified/ignorant of blocking. (Blocking, for non-yarners, is where you wet and steam/iron/dry your pieces stretched out so they retain the proper shape, don’t curl in on themselves, and become magically prettier. Acrylic yarn is prone to melting, however, so I’m scared).

It’s still cute as is, but if I ever get the courage to block it, I’ll post updated pictures.

So a while back I started getting into knitting again. That’s right, I’m not just a hooker ((crocheter, for my non-yarny followers)). I learned to knit first, actually, but when I discovered how fast crocheting was in comparison, I lost interest.

Well, I got tired of crocheting after a few big projects, so I learned how to use DPNs (double pointed needles) and started whipping up headbands.

And this was the first! A quick ribbed band with a crocheted rose to dress it up. I’m not always the girly type, being androgynous prone to far swings, but I guess this was a girly phase.

Questions, comments, and commissions are super cool and will totally be answered! Email me at yarnmonger.creations@gmail.com or throw an ask my way, my box is always open.

This was an art trade for nubbybub, aka the Queen of DaveKat. I’m SUPER overdue on my part, so sorry again, but I hope you love them! For those who don’t know, these are Dave and Karkat from Homestuck, in swapped God-Tier hoodies. I call them a Shipping pair. :3

I am available for art trades, though sometimes I need some help with funding as I am growing increasingly poorer due to the fact that I’m about to start GETTING MY GODDAMN MASTERS and living away from home.

On that note, you can always commission me to help me out. All proceeds go to paying my tuition!

So I got a hankering to make something quick and tiny. Asked my knitting buddy what I should make.

Our mutual friend anxiousicecream is a very proud Hufflepuff, so I whipped up this badger for her. Needless to say, she was very pleased!

This one took a couple of hours, and the size comparison can be seen against the penny.

The body is actually grey in real life, though for some reason the camera gave it a purple tint. :\

“Start on January 1st with an empty jar. Throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. On December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year.”

I’m reblogging this again, to remind people that reblogged this earlier in the year with the “I’M GOING TO DO THIS” comments. Now, here it is. I’m reminding you. You said you would do this. Now join me and start this Tuesday.

Kawaii! This person has other cute things that she crocheted to. But the soot sprites are killing me with cuteness!

I’ve been wanting to make my daughter a little Calcifer plushy but haven’t been able to think of a way to make him look cute and less cheesey. Love the eyelash yarn idea! Will be doing this soon! ^w^

Calciferrr!
