I hope everyone has had a great first week of summer! I had a pretty good week, I finished a crochet project and have gotten started on a knitting project. I am completely in love with the last project that I completed! I had been searching for my next project and when I cam across this one I just had to make it. The pattern is a paid pattern and can be found in the book Zoomigurumi 3 or on Ravelry This hippo was much larger than I thought it would be so if anyone decides to make it just be warned it does take some time to make! And now here is the Hippo: 

Just look at how cute it is! I was able to give it to it's intended recipient today and I think she liked it!

Quite awhile ago I bought a couple of the Clover Amour crochet hooks. My hands were aching if I was using the metal hooks for long periods of time. In online groups I kept reading about how great these are. It was such a good decision because I can now crochet for much longer without my hands aching. I  recommend them or any other ergonomic hooks if you are going to be crocheting for hours on end. If you buy the whole set at once it can be pretty costly so I have only bought a couple of the ones that I use most often.

Dirk and Kira -Lalylala Dolls

I have 2 Lalylala dolls that I have completed! The first one that I finished was Dirk:
 I finished Dirk a few months ago and then a couple weeks ago I made Kira:

Eventually, I'm sure I will make all of Lydia Tresselts projects! Right now I am currently working on an adorable project form the book Zoomigurumi 3. I will post it as soon as it is complete! My goal is to finish it this weekend.

Hello Spring!

I am so glad that it is now Spring! I have been busy the past week making some more Amigurumi! First I finished another one of Lalylala's awesome patterns! I made Dirk.

Today I finished making this really cute Deadpool by the Geeky Knitter! I love how cute it is!

I really want to start a bunch of the other patterns that I have recently found, but I realized I should probably work on some of the WIPs that I have. :)

Knit hats!

I have been on vacation this week and have been getting more done then I have been able to in a while. I made these two hats over the past two days; .

This is the Squarshy Hat by Alaina Andersen. I used a nice alpaca yarn so it is super soft! The pattern is easy to follow and has some pretty funny. If cursing bothers you, this probably isn't the pattern for you.


This is a really cute baby sized pumpkin hat by Sarah Hood. I had a little trouble with the leaf at first so I decided to only make the one. I made this one for my friend's baby and it fit her perfectly! This pattern also has sizes for toddler, child and adult.

Both patterns are available for free!

lalylala FIBI the fox

I finally got around to finishing lalylala's Fibi the Fox! I love lalylala's patterns! Back in August I made lalylala's Vlad. Just like with the pattern for Vlad the pattern was very easy to follow. Here is my Fibi the Fox:

I also recently finished knitting a sweater for my friend's baby! I started it months ago but now that it is Fall I figured I should probably get it finished. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it but if you are looking for an easy sweater pattern, try Babies Neckdown Cardigan. I think there may be one for older children as well but this pattern is for 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months.

Hug Monster

I was looking for a quick amigurumi to do over the weekend and I found the Hug Monster by Linda Salant. It is a free pattern.I absolutely loved it and had to make it. It was very quick to make, so I made two!

With the purple Hug Monster I used the listed hook size of 4.25 mm but with the blue one I used a 3.75 mm. The stuffing didn't show through the holes as much using the smaller hook, so when I make more I will continue with the 3.75 mm or 3.5 mm.

I am not sure how much yarn it took to make these but it didn't take much, so if you have a small ball of yarn this is a great project to use it for. You could use a bunch of scraps and make it striped or just have a solid colored monster, there are so many possibilities!

Star Wars

As I'm sure many of you know, there is a new Star Wars movie coming out in December, so I decided to crochet the Death Star. I have seen this pattern by Pops de Milk on Pinterest and on Ravelry recently and we have talked about Star Wars at work so I decided to go ahead and make it! 

I used a smaller hook size then suggested in the pattern so mine came out quite a bit smaller than the one using the hook sized listed but I really like the size I ended up with. This didn't take me that long to make and the pattern isn't too hard to follow. The tricky part is figuring out how to do the lines on the outside of the sphere. Pops de Milk does have a video in the post showing you how she does the outside design. There are many more star wars patterns available online so I might try some of those too!

Amigurumi Witch!

I made this witch this past weekend. I didn't use a pattern and it didn't quite come out as I was picturing but I am still happy with the result! This was the first time I have done hair on amigurumi. I do love the look of it! Unfortunately the head is quite wobbly but I now have a better idea about how I want to try this again! I also was inspired by the witch pattern by Sayjai Amigurumi. I also used most of the pattern for the hat because I couldn't quite get it right myself.

I am on a roll with my projects lately! I made this little Baymax from the Disney movie "Big Hero 6", last night! It is a super easy to follow pattern that can be completed in a very short amount of time and it is absolutely adorable! It is also a free pattern which I love! If you want to make your own, here is the pattern. I used a hook size US E(3.5mm) and Caron One pound for the yarn. With that yarn it was a little stiff and when I make this again I think I will use a slightly larger hook!

I absolutely love this pattern! This is Vlad by Lydia Tresselt! It was a very easy pattern to follow. It includes very detailed instructions and it also had very useful pictures in order to help you figure out what to do. I am definitely going to try another one of her fabulous patterns!
