    How to Corner to Corner Crochet

    All right! Sorry for the long break, (I went to Tokyo for Golden Week) and then to start out with a post that`s more of an update than a new craft. Although it is an explanation. Oh, and also, I think I`m going to move craft posts to Thursdays. The way my schedule is right now, Wednesday I usually have time to write the posts, but not take pictures till late, so if I write the posts and take the pictures Wednesday, I can have them posted Thursday morning! ^_^ So, the reason that this post is an update is that I`m still working on my Doctor Who blanket.

    Plastic Yarn 

    Another recycling craft! Something I`ve heard a lot about recently is “Plarn” aka Plastic Yarn. As I`m always up for recycling crafts, I decided to give it a try.

But I have the hang of it now!

    This blog

    I was so bound and determined that this blog would be solely about magick. I mean, according to my title, that`s what you`d expect, coming to visit, right? But looking back and seeing that I only have two posts so far, despite having started about a month ago, I realized that might not be very realistic. After all, my life (unfortunately) is not 24/7 magick. Well, it is, and that`s the whole point of this blog, but if I only focus on the moments I know are magick, I think that defeats the purpose of trying to find magick where I can`t currently see it. So let me go over…
