There's a truly amazing #crafter #market that opened up in town recently. I only just discovered it a few weeks ago, and I'm fascinated by the wide variety of #art to be found in their space. If you're ever in #Springfield #Missouri, stop by Fina's Market!
hey yall this is my #introduction
A Bee, she/hers
I joined this server because i am fully in #ofmd pirate brainrot and loving it actually, this show is very very important and dear to me i hold it close to my heart
I have two rascally cat daughters, i work as a production assistant at a sign shop, and i like to rollerblade!! ok have a day bye x
If the ship includes Izzy, there’s a good chance I’ve read it and ship it (and may end up doing art for it). 😅
I guess it's time for a little #introduction
My name is Kelsey and I go by IslandersCaper most places on the internet.
I use she/her and fae/faer pronouns, I was born in 1995, and I've moved around Atlantic Canada a lot, but am currently based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
I like to read, I like comics, I love to be outside, and I've had people describe me as "a living Jane Austen character" or as having "cottagecore and victorian teacup vibes".
I've never done an #introduction but maybe I should. I go by the name Cheshire (Ches for short) and I'm all over the place. I have #ADHD so my interests vary a LOT. I am a #crafter, #gamer, #contentcreator who has a #dog and a #cat. Met my husband online in a game and moved to #Mexico to be with him. I play all sorts of #games, mostly #GuildWars2 and #Warframe, with the occasional others. Currently hold 2 #degrees, first being a #veterinarytechnologist and my second being a #gamedeveloper. (1/2)
Time for an update, so here's my new #introduction!
With #cardboard, #paper and tissue, each soaked in water and glue, and some paint, Pakistan-based YouTuber and self-taught #science #crafter Khadija Fazal Karim creates an #anatomical model of an #eyeball.
Artisan Chat is an inclusive Fediverse community for creativity of all kinds, from hobby crafts to studio craft, applied arts to fine arts:
What self-made tool do you use the most?
Mine are probably these thin hardwood pieces I use to pry lacing apart to make room for tensioning lacing when I'm building drums. They just...work, better than anything else I have tried. They don't pull the lacing or damage the drumhead or ring sheath in the process. I have several sizes, depending on the need.
The good thing is I can make more if/when they break (which the tips do on occasion).
Since no one I know irl follows me here I can share this finished hat before I give it to my dad this weekend. I used the Sigges Hat(adult version) pattern by Kultknit (if you've been following me for a bit, you might remember that I used her original pattern, Sigges Hat, for my toddler).
I met guage and knit with Sandnes Garn Peer Gynt in Smoke held together with DROPS Kidsilk in Sea Mist.
I tried out helical knitting to break up the mohair colourway I used and I wouldn't necessarily recommend that for this pattern because it made the decreases a bit confusing, but I'm really happy with the end result, so it was worth it for me.
It's come to my attention that it's Mastodon tradition to make an #introduction post.
Here's some of my work:
I started a frog today! This is Claire Garland's pattern. I'm using worsted weight yarn and US6/4mm needles. This is a sort of practice knit, and I'll be doing smaller ones later.
I'm enjoying this so much! It's a very quick and enjoyable knit.
Guitar resto update. It’s all back together. Hardly any new parts so very little recycling or landfill. Plays really well and sounds quite bright with light strings (it’s going to a learner). Have to give it a few days to settle and then faff with the neck and intonation and it’s done!

#Ecoprinting is a technique that transfers the natural pigments of #flowers and #plants onto #cloth and #paper. France-based #designer and natural #dye #crafter Ceilidh Chaplin shares her first foray into this art form in this breezy #video.
I shared a bit about this project already on Instagram, but I've stumbled into designing a pattern for a tapestry! It feels a little weird to say that since I've only recently started knitting, but I've been working really hard on this, and I'm feeling really proud of it.
I chose my yarn to emphasize the boho type feel I'm going for, but I'm very interested in trying it with a simpler solid colour with a tighter ply as well as something more rustic.
My autistic brain apparently can't approach things like this casually, so I'll be looking for a tech editor and pattern testers once I'm finished testing it all the way through myself first. I'm not sure if anyone here would be interested, but I'll share updates as I go! I would be so happy to see some other people be able to make it their own!
I cast on some slippers for my daughter with this really beautiful bulky purple yarn I got from a local destash today!
Tomorrow my dad will be dropping off my mom's pompom makers so I can finish up my daughter's Maker Maker Basic Beanie, and I have another project I'm working on that I'm really excited about, which I'll be sharing soon.
I love dpns! This was my first time using them, and I find them so satisfying. The hat went so quickly today after starting the decreases. I have to wait until this weekend to make the pompom(my mom has a pompom maker) but the hat is currently blocking and I'm very pleased with it.
I got a few pictures of the hat(my first official finished object) on my little this morning before he joyfully ripped it off😅 I'm only sharing two pictures here, but I have been so excited about knitting and all the project ideas I have that I decided to make an Instagram account for just stitchery. It's @ TheWilderKnits if anyone wants to follow a very excited, possibly over-ambitious beginner. 😊
I've been quiet here because I hit a roadblock with my hat project and I'm getting frustrated. I have attempted the decrease section 5 times, and it just looks off. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
If anyone wants to help, it's Sigge's hat(free on ravelry) and the pattern for this section says:
Row 1 - k23, k2tog, k, ssk, k23, k2tog, k, ssk, k23, k2tog, k, ssk
Row 2 - Knit
Repeat rows 1 and 2 (with 2 fewer stitches at the start of row 1, so k21, then k19, etc) until 8 stitches remain
It's supposed to make a sort of ridge situation but mine just looks like it's sort of... leaning? I don't really know how else to explain it. The first picture is of an earlier attempt at that section. If anyone knows how to help, please let me know.
The second picture is of the tapestry I cast on yesterday. I'm not using a pattern for that one, just planning to play around with stitches until it looks how I want it. I'm starting with the moss stitch and going top down because I like the sturdiness and I just think it's pretty.
Brim finished last night! I'm excited to start the next section today. I get to learn German short rows.
(The stitch markers aren't for a certain number of rows, I just moved them from the first row to keep track of the last stitch in the row as I got further along)
I started my bag over and I'm very satisfied with how it's looking now. I'm glad I took the time. I never would've been happy with it if I left the holes.
I'm now very much starting to desire a stitch marker so I can stop compulsively recounting the rows. Definitely adding to the list for when I get more supplies.
New Year's goals for me are less about resolutions, more about setting things in my sights to accomplish. Whether or not I do so is always a different story.
Anyway, either way -- goal this year is to complete my fantasy murder mystery novel, get blogging again, and move my KoFi shop over to Etsy, then eventually shut down my KoFi.
Learn how to use resin. Learn how to knit. I figure these should all be achievable.
I find that the juxtaposition of 'lady-like' crafts with harsh messages amuses me, and I really appreciate it as an act that can subvert patriarchy. Over the years I've made pillows with #ACAB and #FuckThePolice designs on them, cutesy wall hangings that say 'Don't let the cat out, or the cops in', cross stitch pieces with flowers that declare 'misandry!', and various other items.
At the start of the pandemic I learned to sew 3 layer quilters cotton masks, and gave them away in exchange for a donation to #SistersInside.
I'm starting to learn embroidery and am horrified at how bad I am... but I'm trying not to give up.
I think that's something I enjoy about craft - I grew up being very good at things and learning very quickly, which meant that I didn't have to try hard and struggle to learn. It also means that I've grown up with the idea that if I don't pick up something immediately, I'm never going to learn how to do it. Craft gives me the space to be bad at it, because the process is more important to me than the product. It's helping me learn that 'progress over perfection' is desirable, and that it's ok for me to make mistakes.
I never gave an intro because I was just checking things out, but now that I plan to stay—this is me:
Born and raised in West Virginia, I spent most of my life studying Appalachian culture and religion. I live in Idaho now, but still advocate for Appalachian people.
United Methodist clergy. Queer (that’s why I moved—long story.) Extremely progressive, politically & theologically.

Did I never do an #introduction for here???
Hey y'all. I'm an avid #crafter and #writer. I work in #webdev at a digital marketing agency. I live in the middle of nowhere and own #goats and #chickens, and am working on setting up a (very very) small goat #dairy even though there's no money to be made in dairying anymore.
@phire.place has moved instances, so I am making sure you're all following her new one ❤️ She is a #writer at the intersection of #tech and #society and is into #labour organizing (hey #antifascist folks) and #decolonization. She loves #scifi and is a #crafter. 🇨🇦
A recent focus of my art has been on pattern design. I design with the end goal of my work being used in clothing or decor that I would personally like to wear or decorate with.
You can get these patterns on fabric, wallpaper and homegoods through my spoonflower shop:
