Crocheted Garland

I whipped up a crocheted garland the other night.
It was a great way to use up bits of worsted yarn.
The circle-in-the-square pattern was very simple - and it's so pleasing to me!
5-inch squares, all neatly piled, ready for the Etsy store, which I have just re-opened!

Eagles at TUTS

Last weekend I was down at Theatre Under the Stars for a callback. It was just gorgeous out!
The bowl was all closed up and empty.
But look, there were two audience members, wayyy up in the tree. It's a favourite spot for these two eagles:
Here's a closer shot. Eagles, eagles, eagles, I love eagles!!

National Crochet Month

Did you know March is National Crochet Month? I learned that from a post from LionBrand. This means that you should crochet every day this month! And here are some yummy crocheted desserts to get you in the mood :)

Work mate

Someone came to spend some time with me in my office last week. How did I get anything done?! The hubs is up at UBC doing their musical with the Department of Theatre and Film, so he's up on campus more these days.

Cabled Newsboy Cap

I made this Cabled Newsboy Cap from the book Stitch n Bitch. I have made this hat many times before, way back when I didn't have a blog. My mom still wears hers and asked for another one, so I made this for her.
I made it with one extra cable repeat, so it could cover her ears better. I used Vanna's Choice in Oatmeal, and I had just enough left to make a matching flower pin.
This is a lovely hat, it has just the right amount of slouch to it and I love the brim.

Same Boat - almost done

Remember back in May I did some shooting for a short film, Same Boat? Well it's almost done! I went back in to the studio to re-record some bits.
It was so strange watching the almost-completed cut. They have locked picture and now just have to do sound and colour correction. Here's a production still - I had long hair back then! I'm excited to see the final version :)
