Every once in a while I come across an artist that just blows me away. Katika (@katikaart) in Russia is one of them. When I see work from someone like her, I think, only 146 followers? That’s not right. People should know about this hidden gem. So here is my attempt to bring her gift to more people. You must check out her IG portfolio @katikaart!

No Pain, Just Gain : Hand Exercises For Crocheters
Source : Fall 2012 issue of Interweave Crochet Magazine
Here are some exercises for knitters and crocheters. They help relieve the pain and numbness that is associated with crafting for long periods of time. They really work! Try them!
Thanks for tagging! This is so important!!!

Operation “[H]eart, or Made with Love”
Just a quick note, while I have no finished projects to show.
From March, 11 til today I was working on my very first custom order, and yesterday customer asked me to put a little heart into doll’s chest. So I took my 0.5 hook and red sewing thread and did that.
PS to make it clear: I don’t put any spesial meaning into “doll with heart”, but I have no reason to say “no” when I’m asked to do such a “ritual” ))
It is a pretty cool idea in my opinion :)
next» guess? Hehe #crochetdoll #crochet #crafts #mameawcraft #makewithlove ตัวต่อไปทำอะไรดีน่า
Can I get this pattern anywhere? It’s so pretty!
Trying to make a lil pomeranian puppy but it doesn’t want to be as fluffy as the one from the tutorial :< But it’s still cute <3
It’s going to get a decent photoshoot after I finish it!
Rule #1: No time spent crocheting is ever wasted.
Rule #2: Keep track of your markers.
Rule #3: That’s not a mistake, that’s a design element.
Rule #4: There’s no such thing as too much yarn.
Rule #5: There’s no crying in crochet.
Rule #6: Never start a project without at least two hooks in the required size.
Rule #7: No coffee within 10 feet of yarn, projects, patterns or critical paperwork.
Rule #8: Block that puppy.
Rule #9: If the hook is not moving easily and smoothly in and out of the stitches, you are crocheting too tightly. Relax.
Rule #10: If it hurts, stop.
Rule #11: Check your work. Often.
Rule #12: Seam crochet only when absolutely unavoidable.
Rule #13: Cut yarn only when absolutely unavoidable (see special circumstance Rule #19).
Rule #14: The private should look as good as the public.
Rule #15: Whenever doable, obtain twice as much yarn as you think the project will require (a corollary to Rule #4).
Rule #16: There is no right way or wrong way, but there is the way to get the same results as shown.
Rule #17: Listen to the yarn.
Rule #18: Yarn sometimes lies.
Rule #19: Exterminate all knots and wonky sections as they arise from a skein.
Rule #20: UFOs that have not spoken to you for more than a year may be considered stash in pre-crocheted form.
Rule #21: Read the fracking pattern.
Rule #22: The pattern could be wrong.
Rule #23: Get it when you see it because when you come back next time it might not be there (another corollary to Rule #4).
Rule #24: Life is too short to mess with indifferent yarn.
Rule #25: Sweat the details.
Rule #26: Crochet is not dumb and neither are crocheters.
Rule #27: Knitting is not the enemy.
Rule #28: Anyone who doesn’t get Rule #26 is the enemy.
Every time I start a new skein of yarn I feel like I have to ask for its consent.
