This is my little place on the internet to recount my adventures in craft! Having had a Livejournal for quite some time (namely, since 2000 – my, how the years fly!) I am no stranger to writing for an audience, but this is the first time I will be writing for complete strangers, and subjecting my work for your scrutiny.
At the moment I am mainly dabbling in amigurumi (lit. knitted stuffed toy) and sewing, but I’ve also done cross-stitch for years. Incidentally, my amigurumi are crocheted, not knitted, as I am ashamed to say that knitting is the one craft I fail at. Hard. My poor mother cringes to see me picking up knitting needles, and despite her many, many attempts to teach me, I’m still incapable of producing even a mere scarf. In fact, the last scarf I tried to knit started off with 18 stitches, and had grown to 40 by the time I was a quarter of the way through. Yeah, I don’t know either. So it is very unlikely you will ever see anything knitted by me on this blog or in my Etsy store.
Speaking of my Etsy store, from time to time I will be selling my handmade goodies there. No surprises, that’s what an Etsy store is for. If you happen to see something here on my blog that is not on my Etsy store, but you think is pretty cool and you’d like one for yourself, let me know. I’m more than happy to take special requests!
Now, I’m still a bit of a noob when it comes to crochet and sewing – I’m learning a lot with every project I make, and as such I have discovered a lot of awesome (and some not so helpful) tutorials and the like on the web that have helped me on my way. I plan to have some of my own tutorials up and running before too long, and hopefully this will help and inspire any budding crafty-types who happen along this blog.
