I finished a mini-project today. This one is for my shop partner. But if you want one, drop me a line.
Pattern credit goes to Chase Clark of Oakland California. http://diyods.blogspot.com/2011/08/giant-amigurumi-toadstool-pattern.html

This mushroom came together quickly. I changed one thing on the original pattern - I make crochet circles instead of cutting them out of felt. I enjoyed making this one. Now I've got to get back to the circle vest.

Learning How to read Crochet Diagrams

Intro... C


 

Hi There!

My name is Chris.  I've been crocheting and doing other yarn crafts for over 24 years.  I’ve taught crochet classes and I’ve made all sorts of stuff from blankets and baby booties to hats with cat ears and amigurumi penguins.

I'm a mother of three wonderful kids, I’ve recently graduated from UNT and I work there too.  My oldest daughter and I are finally making this website to sell some of our finished items.  If you want something customized, just drop us a line – we can do it! 

 
My motto:  I’d rather be curled up on the couch with a ball of yarn.

Intro... K


Heeeeeey everyone, I'm Kris.
I've been working on crotchet and other crafts here about ten years now and I'm still learning new things everyday.

I'm am a soldier in the U.S. army currently at Fort Hood and a lover of Marvel comics.
My favorites are the X-men... and lately I'm loving DP more and more
(Deadpool guys... Deadpool)

But anyway, I've been making so many yarn things over the years I've got yarn coming out of my ears.
So what better place to show off my skill then online
Yay?

I've got not much else to say here at the moment
But here is a link to my current contest

And here is the journal with the rules 
It's pretty simple to follow

One guess per post and whoever can guess the character I'm making first will get 15% off their next custom order from me

May the odds ever be in your favor
