New Pattern Coming + Facebook page!

Hey my crafty friends!

It has been long overdue, but I finally created a facebook page for my blog and pattern store!

Please visit! Like! Stay up to date with new posts and see my random posts!

In addition, I got a new amigurumi pattern coming out soon. If you’ve been following my blog there is a pattern that I’ve been working on for awhile that has been through like 9 or 12 revisions. I kinda lost count on how many times I’ve redone this pattern.

When will the pattern be out? The written pattern is complete. I need to check one row (that I forgot to count for the colour chart, doh). I also need to do some more photos and maybe crochet a few more of this creature for the pictures. Actually, I made 3 of these guys already, but they are pretty simple to make and easy to customize so I just want to keep making more! Good chance that I will be selling a couple of the demos as well.

TEASER PIC

Hopefully the picture doesn’t give too much away. Actually, I’m not sure what this is just by looking at the picture. It’s got big eyes and blue. You can guess, but I’m not telling until the pattern is up!


Holding back my comment

Diaso yarn

^ found on the Antibacterial yarn package, purchased from Diaso (Richmond, BC, Canada). I’m trying really hard to hold back any smart or insulting comments to go with this picture.

I’ve been missing in action lately as my computer(s) were spazing. Okay, I have one computer my sister and I built about 2-3 years ago… and each part on it broke except for the tower case and power supply (even the case fans broke). From there, I switched to my father’s computer a few months ago which is at least 6 years old and can just barely handle internet browsing.

So I bought a shiny Dell computer (i7 quad processor + 8gb ram) and now I’m FLYING! However, that project = installing everything, moving files around, reorganizing files, and playing on things I couldn’t do before my previous computers didn’t. While I was doing that, I’ve been chipping away at this blanket:

At the moment, it can almost touch the edges of my double-sized bed. I’m just gonna keep crocheting away until all the yarn is gone <3

Back to new computer tinkering!


Intro-ham-duction

I’ve been chipping away at a new pattern that is taking longer than expected because I keep adding parts to it!

I also have this new critter distracting me
Ham

Who wants me to make popsicle stick houses and feed him snacks all day… and thinking about crocheted ham houses. His name is “Chestnut” <3 cute!

Ah yes, that new pattern. Here is another preview:
