Between my friends and family February through July is birthday season. You’ve seen a scarf and Yoda so far; but today I’m going to talk about the amigurumi squirrel that I made for Ryan. I selected Boris the Red Squirrel from Edward’s Menagerie (pgs 94-95) to make for Ryan. I bought Premium Chinchilla and Premium Gingerbread yarn from Jo-Ann’s. Pages 14 and 15 of Edward’s Menagerie give sizing instructions for … Continue reading Birthday Squirrel
For over a month now resurrected Yoda has evaded the Sith lord Emily. In his completed form (equipped with ears, a coat, and a belt) he has been diligent to hide in my crochet bag, on top of a clock to high for a toddler, and in other inconspicuous places. His evasions skills allowed him to escape from our home in Broomfield, and find his … Continue reading Return of the Jedi
Brian and I began crocheting in January. I don’t recall the exact date, but I would wager it was about halfway through the month. This probably means I’m a week or so away from having been crocheting for a third of the year.

We were constantly reminding her … Continue reading The continuing adventures of Crochet Puppy

My sister-In-Law, who lives in Tucson, is expecting a baby in April. She had her baby shower last month and I decided it was a perfect time to make a gift for her. Grandmas on both sides of … Continue reading My First Amigurumi: Baby Shower Puppy
I’ve been working in secret for the last two weeks. Cramming a little bit of crochet in here and there, after my little one goes to sleep. Trying to be quiet and being really diligent about where I leave the book, and my supplies. It’s been a secret mission and the spy lives in my house. I’ve been making Emily (my three year old) a … Continue reading Easter Bunny Surprise!
