March update and Easter patterns

Hi! It’s been a while… This monthly update is almost three weeks late, and I haven’t posted about the last couple of weekly patterns either, so there’s a lot to catch up!


First, here’s how far I’ve gotten on my temperature blanket πŸ™‚ I managed to take this picture of the completed month of March, but then I never got round to blogging about it. It may look like all the ends are nicely woven in, but really they’re just cleverly hidden under the blanket πŸ˜› I fell behind for a while and was suddenly in a hurry to catch up before March ended so I could take the picture. I’ve since added some of the hexes for April, but I’m falling behind again because of work and holidays and other craft projects, so we’ll see if I can manage to catch up towards the end of this month…


Last day of March was a warm one! πŸ™‚

Second, I’ve been slacking with my Pattern of the Week posts as well, and I do apologise. I had two Eastery pattern for sale, but I think I forgot to post anything about them, except for maybe on Twitter. I was suddenly called in to work for several days, and then we were going away for the Easter (which is really long here in Norway), so we were busy packing and stuff. And while we were away (until yesterday), internet was limited, so I tried to keep my posting and photo uploads to a minimum. Not the best advertisement strategy, though…

But even if you missed out on these pattern deals during the holiday, you can still get the patterns now and then make them for next year or something πŸ™‚ I will keep them discounted for another week, or week and a half, since it’s now Thursday. So you have until Sunday the 30th πŸ˜€


Easter pattern number one, my Jellybean Bunnies! Pattern available on Etsy and Ravelry πŸ™‚


Pattern number two, volume 1 of the Forest Dwellers. Because there’s a bunny! Pattern available on Etsy and Ravelry πŸ™‚

Hope you’ve been well! Will post again in not too long πŸ™‚


New pattern: Moray Eel :)

Surprise, I have finished a new crochet pattern! πŸ˜€


I started this thing a long time ago. According to my Instagram, I thought I would have this pattern ready in March last year. But for various reasons that didn’t happen, and this cool fishie sort of got lost in the shuffle. Didn’t take me long to finish him now, though πŸ™‚


The pattern is up on Etsy and Ravelry, and I’ve decided that this will be the pattern of the week as well. So this is currently listed at a lower price and will continue to be on sale for a week. Get it now if you want to save πŸ˜€


Pattern of the week

I’m trying something new!

Every week I’ll pick a pattern that will be discounted for that whole week, starting right now (Sunday night), and lasting until next Sunday, when it goes back to its normal price and a new pattern will be discounted. Sounds exciting? I’m excited πŸ™‚

This week’s pattern of choice is the Compass Jellyfish!


The price has been lowered both on Etsy and Ravelry, but due to Etsy’s new VAT rules, the price you see in the shop may vary depending on where you are in the world. If you’re not from the US, it’s most likely cheaper for you to buy from Ravelry, where you don’t even need to be a registered user to buy patterns, as long as you have the direct link πŸ™‚

(Just this once, here are the countries that charge VAT from the buyers: Countries in the EU, Norway, Russia, Switzerland, South Africa, India, South Korea and New Zealand.)

Love Bugs :)

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and for that occasion I have a new pattern to share! Love bugs, of course, because bugs is what I do πŸ˜›


There are three patterns in one this time. I couldn’t settle on what bug to make, so I made two πŸ˜€ And then I thought it would be neat if the heart-shaped body could be finished as a heart on its own. Just skip the head and legs.


The pattern is up on Etsy and Ravelry. These little guys are easy and quick to make, so you still have time to make them for yourself or a friend for Valentine’s Day πŸ™‚

Suddenly, a bunny!

Meet the Jellybean Bunny πŸ™‚

When I woke up this morning I had this idea in my head that I just had to try, and so, a few hours later a new pattern was published! I just thought of little rabbits that was made in one piece, ears first, and in different bright colors like jellybeans. And it’s also a little inspired by the simple shape of chocolate bunnies, which I love, but always feel a little bad for eating. They are so cute! So yes, based on my two favorite things to eat at Easter, jellybeans and chocolate bunnies πŸ™‚

The pattern includes a bit of shaping on the head, but otherwise it’s very quick and easy. And since it’s made in one piece, minimal sewing is required. The pattern is up on Ravelry and Etsy, in time for Easter and everything πŸ™‚
