Amigurumi Snakes on the Couch

Here are a couple of my creations from back in the summer. They were a gift for one of my daughter’s friend and her younger brother. She loves snakes and has a ball python named Monty. She held her birthday party at the local snake farm, so it only seemed fitting to give her something…

Crochet Organization

For the rest of 2016, our family theme is organization as we are looking to move in a year we need to take care of our clutter. Since we will be knee deep in stuff we might as well organize it. I mean seriously organize it like put stuff in boxes, writing down was in…

Gen Con Pokemon Crochet

Crafters are pretty cool people. Not only do they make creative things but they are also very generous. A while back I had seen a Twitter post from a fellow crocheter who spent the last year making cute, geeky amigurumi to hide at a con she was attending leaving each one with a note to…

Valentine’s Day Cards

February 14th is fast approaching. Chances are you have something on the hook for your Valentines. I was inspired to do a couple of Valentine’s Day cards that yarn inspired. I may do more before the big day depending on how I feel. I’m getting over a common cold that felt anything but common.

GNOMES!

I have been crazy for gnomes this past year. I blame Gen Con. Well really I blame Gut Bustin’ Games and their Oh Gnome you Don’t board game that had a heavy presence at Gen Con. It looked like a fun game and we even got a demo at their booth. Also our niece took…

Bear Lovey

I haven’t made that many pieces for babies. The one finished baby blanket I made took a long time. In fact I finished with literally an hour before the baby shower. My baby booties are usually different sizes. So I just shy away from baby items and just usually buy gifts. For some reason I…

Lizard Bookmark Valentines

It’s nice to have a child that appreciates the things I make her. I made her a lizard bookmark from a free gecko pattern. The best thing about this pattern is that it is all one piece. It works up super fast. My daughter took the bookmark to school where a few kids had expressed…
