Bums + Feet seafoam 1

Customizable, hand-crafted poufs

All of the poufs by spell it with PEAS can be custom made!

I can alter size, yarn colours or even the design. I work closely with every customer to make each pouf special —I can usually find most colours too, so please ask me and I can show you what is currently available.

Here are a few colour examples of the same ottoman called the Bums + Feet pouf…it’s for bottoms and soles.

At least this one is more like a vest than a sweater AND I’ll be knitting with cotton yarn instead of the recommended wool yarn, so it should be great for summer/autumn.

This is the third time I’ll be using this mustard-colored yarn. Hahaha
The other two projects I previously started were just not working out for me. Third time’s a charm, right?!

This time I’m more confident with knitting fitted clothing…maybe it’s better to think the other two sweaters with this yarn were just trial runs.

I’ll be making this versatile little number, called Sandy.

I think my plan is to work through all of the patterns by Quince & Co. Very realistic, I know.

10 places I would be inspired to knit…(or not knit)

Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka

I’ve always wanted to visit a tea plantation and why not here…in Sri Lanka?!

 Île de Ré, France

Lighthouses and the views that surround them.

Micronesia

Ever since I thought I had won a trip to Micronesia, I’ve wanted to visit this incredibly gorgeous archipelago.

Micronesia

Indonesia

Pretty much anywhere in Indonesia would be fine by me.

Indonesia

Cambodia

Same as Cambodia…I would love to visit any part of it.

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Northwest Territories, Canada

In discovering more of my homeland, I’ve still got to visit the north…

Yellowknife Area, Canada

Maritimes, Canada

…and the east.

Peggy’s Cove

Denmark

I never really thought of Denmark as a place I’d like to visit until I moved to Europe.

I’m starting to notice a distinct WATER theme to these places that I want to visit.

Copenhagen, Denmark

New Zealand

I’d go back there anytime! What a gloriously diverse country NZ is from its rain forests and beautiful towns and its beaches and mountains.

Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

 India

My biggest desire is to spend a LOT of time in this mesmerizing country: Its colors, vegetarianism, people, spirit, landscapes, food…

felted bowl process

Making 10 wooly, felted bowls

A custom order for 10 felted bowls has me knitting furiously!

I love making these bowls and could knit them for hours.

Would you like to make your own? Here is my pattern for the bowls. They are very easy to make and you can get very creative with them by adding more than one color, making stripes or changing the texture with different wools.

Don’t want to make them? You can also buy them in my Etsy shop! I take custom orders too.

One night sweater by Pickles

Sweaters, sweaters, sweaters

Heh. Yay! Just in time for summer!! I can’t control when an urge is going to take me over. So, if I want to make a sweater, I’ll make a sweater. I was actually just really keen to get my first sweater out of the way, but along my journey I discovered more patterns that I liked.

This is my current collection of sweater porn. I have big, big plans to make each and every one of them.

Tourist Sweater – making it now.
