Hello everyone! Now I know a lot of spoonies, and a lot of witches who either knit, crochet or sew. These activities suit both groups: for spoonies they offer a creative output without having to spend too much energy, and for witches they’re a really easy way to practise magic daily. So yarn/knot magic is perfect for spoonie witches!
This year (2017) I am crocheting a square each day, and making these into a massive blanket. I am choosing the colours of each square based on each day, how I felt, or magical colour correspondences I want to instil.
As I crochet, I set my intention for the blanket within each stitch- for me these include protection, comfort and safety. Other ways to add magic include adding strands of your hair or the hair of a loved one into the blanket to add extra protection (this often happens by accident for me as my hair sheds everywhere!), or you can crochet with the colours specific to your intentions.
My colour correspondences are:
white: cleansing and purity
black: protection and binding
red: strength and passion
pink: love and harmony
orange: courage and comfort
yellow: communication and self love
green: fertility and wellness
dark blue: dreams and psychic abilities
light blue: joy and new beginnings
violet: divination and inspiration
purple: authority and power
grey: neutrality and secrets
brown: the home and grounding
silver: intuition and reflection
gold: prosperity and luck
Happy Witch Crafting everyone! (see what I did there? good pun)
I made a stash basket for some of my yarn hoard! No pattern for this one (sorry!)
Side note: I realize that I do post things without a pattern sometimes (usually things that are either WIPs, and/or things that I just make on my own). If I post something that you want to make too, let me know! I’ll do my best to help you out :)
The Autumn Field Trip Peak Hat is a nice weight for transitioning into and out of winter. Created with a seamless design, this pattern uses worsted weight yarn. I used organic cotton for the hat in this pic. -

So basically, I wanted to really surprise
Seán with his gift, and hear him yell ‘Toriko’, so I was like ‘oh I’ll ask him to close his eyes, yell Trico, and then ask him to open his eyes, and like BOOM! Trico.’ As soon as I asked him the words ‘close your eyes’, I knew it sounded really creepy (fuck), but he humoured me, and it was lots of fun. I’m really happy he likes it!
I need help to pay for my turtle’s recent surgery and follow up work!
I am opening up slots for crochet doll commissions to pay for my turtle’s emergency surgery from earlier this week. He has a lot of difficulties, including a calcium metabolism disorder and scoliosis, and he prolapsed on Tuesday. The surgery to correct his prolapse went well, but because of his shell and hip deformations, he’s going to need a lot of aftercare. His scoliosis also means he may need additional surgeries in the next few weeks because his shell is putting extra pressure on his cloaca and organs.
To help pay for his recent (and possible future) surgeries, I’m opening commissions for small crochet dolls. These dolls are hand-made, usually taking about 2-6 weeks to complete and ship. Here is my most recent example for @thetartestglitter of their OC Lemmy, including the reference picture I used.

NSFW dolls (tiny yarn = very difficult)
These dolls are usually 5-7 inches tall, made of a combination of natural and synthetic yarn, filled with synthetic stuffing, and with plastic ‘safety’ eyes. The base price for these dolls is $70. [I am willing to discuss larger commissions.]
I’m also accepting paypal donations at fadedsepiastitches[at]outlook[dot]com. Even if you don’t want/need a doll, please consider bumping this post.
Viktuuri amigurumis, both finally finished! It was difficult to pick the outfits to crochet, I’m still not 100% sure about my choice but the coats and scarves are removable so if I just have the energy I may try some other looks for them too
