I finished this bad boy just before xmas. My goal was to use up the odds & ends in my yarn stash. I was so successful that I had to buy yarn to finish it, and I learned that yarn styles have changed. I had a hard time finding funky colorful yarn suitable for the [...]

Several years ago, I bought the Crochet Flower Pattern Collection by Stitch Diva Studios. I’ve tried 2 of the patterns. This is supposed to be the Spira-Flora. I swear I followed the directions on this flower and the other one that I made, but neither came out like the picture on the pattern. Very frustrating. [...]

Gosh, I love this. I’ve always been a sucker for crochet in the style of Irish or Clones crochet. They have free patterns on their site, too. Hm, they aren’t really patterns, but they are very interesting stitches/stitch guides/motifs.

I’m a big fan of Elisabeth Doherty. So, of course, when her book, Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute, came out, I bought it. And (can you believe it? ) I’m actually working on something from it. I’m making Hep Cat. Pulguito thinks that I am making it for him. The paws are from some old [...]
