Angelic Granny Squares

Angelic Granny Squares

This photo came out looking weirdly holy… Anyways, these are my first granny squares.

I’m still deciding what to do with the finished product: I think a green and purple baby blanket would be fun (Barney Squares!!!), but is there really a market for baby blankets in non-pastel colors? Maybe somebody involved with babies or moms could help me out?

Here is the granny square pattern I used.

I also published a new listing, for a truly unisex brown & black crocheted backpack. Click the link to visit the listing & my Etsy store!

Just wanted to do some advertising for an awesome Etsy shop that “puts the FUN in top surgery funding!”

Help out some of my transgender fellows and support them!

NSFW warning, buuuuuttt….

NSFW warning, buuuuuttt….

I thought that my followers, particular the queer ones, might be interested in this. Strap-on harnesses can be SUPER expensive, and Ray is making strap-on harnesses with CROCHET. How cool is that? If I didn’t want this guy to make mad bank, I would definitely steal his idea. Go on, buy one! I’m going to!

My new bag, Joann’s purchases, and my first donation!

1 Mar

My new bag, Joann's purchases, and my first donation!

This is what I made today! It took me about nine hours. I’m making my boyfriend a hat that looks like a cooked turkey (which, in the future, will match the bacon scarf and steak mittens I am also gonna make him). While at school, I finished the actual hat part, but did not have the right tools to make the drumsticks I’m gonna attach on top, so I made myself a “man purse.” It’s actually more like a crocheted backpack. It’s been floating around in my head for quite a while and I finally did it. It’s nothing fancy, but it came out quite well.

My friend, who sees how incessantly I crochet, gave me his Joann’s coupons that he received in the mail, so right now I’m picking out the things I want to buy from them. I live in a teeny tiny town so my local Joann’s has a teeny tiny selection, so I’m probably gonna buy off the internet. I know I need more of this bag yarn to finish the turkey hat and the tails I am planning on making. I’m also gonna get some black Red Heart yarn, because for some reason I don’t have any, and one doesn’t need expensive, nice yarn for stuff like amigurumi detailing and things. I’m also going to get some lighter weight yarn, to make my friend a lacy purple gothic overskirt (have not yet decided on a pattern). But alas, I can only use one coupon per order! So I may very well just buy the purple for now.

Also, since it’s the end of the month, I made my first donation to the National Center for Transgender Equality! It was only five dollars, but maybe I’ll get more help in the future. This month, in total, I made NINE DOLLARS AND FIFTY FIVE CENTS once I take out expenses. I sold two things, one on Etsy and one to a friend. Makin’ bank!

Purple/Blue Crocheted Hat to Benefit Transgender Equality

Purple/Blue Crocheted Hat to Benefit Transgender Equality

To date, this is one of my favorite things that I have crocheted. I bought the yarn to make fingerless gloves for my friend as a Christmas present, and then halfway through the project realized that the yarn was not only purple and aqua, but yellow and denim as well.

Here it’s modeled by my close friend and crochet buddy. She’s way more talented than me, so I’ve been bugging her to get into Etsy too. Ain’t she pretty?

This is another one of those things where if you buy it I’ll donate to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
