My life in crochet and knitting (and a bit of everything else).

My very good friend Lindsey recently had a birthday. As her gift, I decided to make her a set of 9 stitch markers. They were pretty fun and simple-ish to make once I got the hang of them and got the correct length "head pins." To make them you need some sort of ring--I used the circular part of a toggle clasp, head pins to put beads on, beads, round nosed pliers, and wire cutters. I also used flat head pliers (not actually sure that is their name...but the head was flat lol) to hold the toggle/head pin as I wrapped it around itself. Once I figured out how to properly hold what I was making it got easier. I didn't write up a tutorial for them, but you can find a good one here.
And for the final result....drum roll please......
Recent Ph.D. graduate! Crafting my way through life (formerly grad school) to keep my sanity :).
I love math, yoga, knitting, crocheting, photography, crafting, cross stitching, and sewing.
I’m obsessed with purple (and teal and blue and green and orange), Vera Bradley, colorful dots/stripes, and recently owls :).
