Korea Loves Crochet, Part 2

Hi everyone!

So you might remember my post, Korea Loves Crochet which tracked my crochet spotting in various Korean TV shows (i.e. Kdramas) and movies. Well, I keep spotting hooked up goodness, I've never seen crochet so much on TV before and I love it!!! So here are some more:

Crocheted mittens in "My Spring Day" (There was even a couple of scenes of her crocheting them)

Amigurumi in "Birth of a Beauty"

Granny square afghan in "Modern Farmer"

Sweater, also in "Modern Farmer"

Anytime I see crochet on TV or in a movie, my internal hooking radar immediately goes BING BING BING. lol

Test Hooker for Vivid Fiber Arts!

Hi everyone!

There's a brand new source for gorgeous hand dyed gradient yarns coming soon: Vivid Fiber Arts! I was lucky enough to grab a spot in one of their testing groups so for the past month or so, I've been hooking up this amazingly beautiful yarn into a Goldberry shawl.


One of the major issues, as a crocheter, that I've had with gradient yarns is that instead of this beautiful graduation between colors, I end up with stripes. Which isn't the worst thing that can happen but one of the joys I've had with working with Vivid Fiber Arts yarn is that they've really made an effort to keep crochet in mind and keep me away from the dreaded "stripe".

So here are some early progress shots:



I'm actually further along now, can't wait to post some more pics! For more information about Vivid Fiber Arts, you can check out their website, Facebook, Instagram or their group on Ravelry.

101 Square-A-Thon: Square 13

Helloooooooooooooooo!

I decided to pick my 101 Square-A-Thon back up after years of WIP hibernation. lol Instead of keeping with the squares in order, I decided to jump to Square 13:


This one was a lot of fun to hook up although I had to frog and re-hook more rounds than I care to admit. lol I didn't have much of a plan for this one, I just grabbed a couple of colors and ran with it. :P


I've been working so hard on my hat shop this year that I had stopped making anything outside of it for the longest time. I finally decided to make some time for other projects that I want to crochet so the 101 Square-A-Thon is BACK ON. lol! :D

Have a great day!

The Art Inside You

Hi everyone!

December is upon us, incredible! I'm doing the challenge this month at Gauche Alchemy, here's the inspiration board:


I decided to work on a page in my art journal and I got a jumpstart from this full page magazine ad:


I cut out the model, lol, and created a background that would fill up the hole I made in the ad. The biggest benefit of using a full page ad was that it covered up some ink bleed through from the back side of the page, lol. You can kind of see it in this picture:

Background with film negative, Bingo card and grey roses napkin
I covered the partial background I made with a very thin tissue paper-like handwritten sheet. I will really miss this when it's all used up. Best thing in my stash lately!


I thought this little sticker quote worked well since I've got a background inside of a snowy window. lol >.<



You're welcome to play along with this challenge and enter your project for a chance to win a prize! Check out the Gauche Alchemy blog for details. :D
