Crafting, crochet, crocheting, knitting

Working on my own pattern

Hi, folks.. I finished the Legend of Zelda bag for my best friend and gamer, x45x. He hasn’t come over to get his presents yet. 😦 He’s been spending about 8 hours a day streaming all his favorite games. (Find him on Twitch after 4pm everyday) Twitch.tv/x45x

Right now, I got a slight cold, but I thought I’d drop a line or two to tell you about my latest project. Since I made the fore-mentioned bag above, I learned the Tunsian or Afghan crochet stitch. This stitch is awesome, because it is closely related to knitting. I have yet to get the hang of knitting. I tried a few weeks ago, but it was to no avail.  Anyway, I decided I need to crochet hook case more my long tunsian needles. I’m in the process of learning a few things, but I’m going to make this really pretty case with a flower on it. I’m going to use the normal tunsian stitch, knit-stitch and, possibly the puff stitch for the flowers. I’ve drawn the items on graph paper and trying to see how I can do with this made up pattern. It’s my first made up pattern.

the next thing I’m going to make is my companies mascot, Dino the VIPKID  dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what to do with him. I’m going to have to really think long and hard how to make him. 🙂 I guess I can steal parts from Baymax and Yoshi to create him. 🙂

I’ll try to post my patterns on my Ravelry page soon.

So nice to give you an update on my crafts. See you soon!

Here are my critters… :-)

I’m so happy to share with you my new critters. I posted them on Instagram for my followers, who are becoming a lot of spammers. (That is annoying!) I know it is late but I have to share these with you. I love my critters and my brother and best friend (who is in Finland I’m sure playing Smash Bros on Wii U, shout out to x45x) loved them.

Here’s Baymax.. He’s tiny and cute. Ian loved him. 🙂

Then there’s bulbasaur. He’s seriously tiny. Tinier than I thought he’d be. I found the pattern on Ravelry and I want to thank Nicole’s Nerdy Knots for the pattern.

At this point, I’m feeling pretty serious about crafting and crocheting these critters. I’ve been doing them for almost a year and I really love them. I’ve opened an Etsy store, but I don’t get many customers. I’m thinking about maybe going into town to see if the Gifted Child would be interested.  It’s a possibly if I could sell these things I’d make big money. 🙂

Let me know what you all think.
