this week’s awesome finds

Lots of won­der­ful things for the mid­dle of spring! 


Rain paint­ing! Per­fect for today, actu­al­ly, a rainy day here in Toron­to. I love the pat­tern it makes when paint reacts to water. By Views From My Win­dow.


A knit octo­pus plush from the ever won­der­ful Purl Bee. Love the tex­ture on the under­side of the tentacles. 


Ohmy­good­ness can any­thing be cuter than this? Pan­cake blan­ket with but­ter pat friend!!! *squeal* Pat­tern for sale by the always fab­u­lous Twinkie Chan! (I’m a huge fan!!)


I don’t know where to buy the spray dye kit but love the way that awe­some twist pat­tern is made! From I Love to Cre­ate.


Mike’s won­der­ful co-work­er for­ward­ed this to me (thank you, Anne!) — a neck krak­en scarf! Pat­tern for sale on Knit Pick. Check out the rest of the Cryp­to­zo­ol­o­gy col­lec­tion too! I down­loaded the krak­en wall­pa­per for my phone :D


Isn’t this so pret­ty? Pat­tern gen­er­ous­ly shared by Handy Kit­ty on Rav­el­ry.


Fuzzy ani­mals, by wrap­ping yarn around plas­tic ani­mals. Isn’t that bril­liant? And very cute! Look at the grey dog with the par­ty con­fet­ti on him! From Home­work.


Love­ly leaf print pen­dant by Hap­py Hour Projects.


Sim­ple and sweet! Water­mel­on coast­er pat­tern by Make and Takes.


 This has a Life After Peo­ple kind of feel to it. Toy truck planter spot­ted on Junk Mar­ket Style.


And final­ly, have a look at Fid­dle Oak’s pho­to­stream. Has many of my favourite things — fly­ing, origa­mi, acorns… It’s won­der­ful­ly imag­i­na­tive and sim­ply magical.


May your week­end be filled with won­ders and crafty goodness!

  1. Oh, such delight­ful finds! As always :-). I hope you make that beau­ti­ful top; it’s so you!!! And that pan­cake with the pat of but­ter? Hon­est­ly, I got teary-eyed when I saw it. We had pan­cakes this morn­ing; maybe that’s why? Fuzzy ani­mals, a beau­ti­ful leaf print? It’s all wonderful.

    I cro­cheted a lit­tle wrist­let last night from a pat­tern on Rav­el­ry; used thick/thin wool so the stitch def­i­n­i­tion is fad­ed. If I don’t use it much as a wrist­let it will work great to hold small yarn as I crochet.

  2. thanks nan­cy! your com­ment just gave me an idea for some fab­ric scraps that aren’t enough to make a square top! i think they would be per­fect for the cro­chet top! the pan­cake is indeed love­ly. i espe­cial­ly love the but­ter pat friend :D hap­py crafting!
