Have you ever crocheted purse handles and had them stretch too much over time? I've got a trick for you: crochet a tube with a cord/rope/ribbon inside of it to minimize stretching! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Check out the blog to see my "How to Crochet Purse Handles" tutorial! πŸ‘œ Doesn't the pop of colour for the handles look striking against the neutral bag?
In case you're wondering why there's only one crochet handle, it's because these are not the final handles for my newest design, the STAR STITCH PURSE! 🌟 It actually has beautiful hand sewn leather handles and I can't wait to show you! The free pattern for the Star Stitch Purse will be up in a couple of days- if you want to get ready, grab 6 skeins of cotton yarn! πŸ’–

Friends - I just finished the edits for this "Driftwood Oversized Hooded Poncho" and put it on the blog early. Hehe! (Link in bio) I planned to have it ready for fall but I have major autumn crochet fever, and well, there ya go. πŸπŸ‚ If you follow me here or on the blog, you know that my fam spends as much time outdoors as we can (whether it's in our pop-up tent trailer or the family cabin) This poncho is perfect to throw on to get outside or to just get cozy. One of the most popular projects of mine has been the Light Frost Blanket Sweater and this took some inspiration from that pattern. It's big, super comfortable and easy to wear. If you make one I'd love to hear about it!
Hope you have a great weekend! OH and congrats to the giveaway winner, Rachel K! Thanks so much to each of you for participating! I hope to have more yarn to give away in the future. Never can have enough yarn can we?! 😘

@lionbrandyarn has flattered me so 😍 They are now doing a giveaway of my World Turtle Succulent Holder on their Facebook page and the winner will be receiving the one I created! 🐒 (Link is in my bio!) So excited knowing it'll be in one of your households! 🏑 However, if you don't win, don't fret! The free pattern is still available on my blog and you can also purchase the entire kit off of @lionbrandyarn's website! πŸ¦πŸ’• Get those succulents ready 🌱

Sorry future self, I'm officially pom-crastinating until after our move in 9 days. 😬

Thank you for the #widn tag @theunknotting! I just packed up a bunch of knits, but had to snap a picture of these guys together first. My excuse for not making poms is that I don't want them to get squished in the move. That's a legit reason, right? πŸ˜‚ Care to share what you're up to @sticks_and_stitches?
Chunky cabled hat pattern can be found in my shop! πŸ’“

On Sunday I promised myself that I would quit scrolling and start reading πŸ“– I've always loved to read, but spent less time with my nose in a book since my work has me online so much. I never walk away from scrolling on social media feeling inspired, uplifted, and energetic. So I quit, cold turkey! πŸ’ͺ🏻 and in a week I've read an amazing book cover to cover. If you haven't read Chip & Jo's amazing story, you need to!
This read has affirmed for me that sometimes you just have to let go, and let your life happen. You just might end up somewhere wonderful πŸ’–

I went to @coldstone after work today and got a shake. The woman gave me my money back. I said what's wrong? She said she never seen this before. My eyebrow went up and I looked down at my money and did a double-take. I realized I handed her Canadian currency πŸ˜‚. It was still in my wallet from this past weekend. *Taps phone on card reader and watched receipt print out* She says, oh that worked. Sigh @ourmakerlife on the mind. So many awesome people I really enjoyed conversing with. So many people I feel I didn't get to converse with enough. We all had a common interest, but even outside of that it felt pretty exceptional.

Pallet signs, cozy knits, and a hot cup of tea...these are a few of my favorite things! Sign for my good friend, twisted head bands, and sleepy time tea. This week has been all about finishing custom orders and taking time for myself to de stress after this crazy month! What do all of my fellow makers do to de stress?
