I designed this rainbow infinite scarf for a trip I took to Nepal in 2017. It’s a lot colder in Nepal than in Singapore, so I really had to bundle up! The yarn is from a great company called Darn Good Yarn that has lots of sustainable and ethical practices. This yarn is made from waste saris that are cut into ribbons! It has some beautiful effects in it, like patterns and rhinestones from the original sari patterns.
I had some extra yarn while crashing with a couple of hospitable friends, so I thought I’d whip them up a cozy for their Chemex coffee maker (which I thoroughly enjoyed throughout my visit). Also, I made an ammonite for reasons I cannot fully explain. Something something spirals something infinity something eternal recurrence?
When a friend asked me for a psychedelic narwhal, I responded with a resounding “…OK?” Here’s how it turned out! Usually I consult patterns, but I just winged this one.
I adapted an existing animal pattern to create this apple-obsessed panda. She’s named after an adorably sassy little panda at Maruyama Zoo in Sapporo. Shout out to all the wonderful Japanese pandas I stalk on Instagram!
I had just a little bit of this fun novelty yarn, so I thought I’d make some coasters with them. They’re more durable and useful than I thought they might be!
