Bamboo Crochet Hooks...

My bamboo crochet hooks finally came in the mail last week. They are awesome.. I'm not sure if I will ever go back to the metal ones ever again.

Trying to get the courage to get my esty shop up and running. I'm really nervous about it.. and I'm not sure why... I almost have one thing completed for my shop. I would like to have a couple more items to have up there... I'm thinking about selling only baby/cat crochet toys. I would like to add dishcloths also... but I'm not sure how well the both of them sell together.. It is said that a shop does better when all items are related to one another. We'll see.

I'm going to write up my shop policies today... no more procrastinating...

...and going to make some more items for my shop...

Nothing new being made this weekend. Taking a small, and I mean very small break from crocheting. Letting my hands rest a bit. I'm waiting for my bamboo crochet hooks to come in the mail. Hopefully sometime this week they will come in. When they arrive... look out... I will be crocheting in overdrive.

Cheeseburger Revised...

Another Cheeseburger with lettuce and tomatoes!! I'm going to try and make a smaller version and turn it into a ear bud case. It might be a little tough, but I'm going to start working on it today.

Punk Rock Alligator.

Green, Blue, and gray lion... without a face.

I loved this little whale so much that I had to make my own version!!!

So the pictures above are what I have completed the last couple of weeks. I haven't made anything this week, but hopefully today I can accomplish something.

Random Thoughts...

I just thought of crochet idea, so I thought I would write it down.

Easter Eggs

I have a pattern for an egg, but I don't have any pastel colored yarn. Hmmm... Maybe use cream color for the egg, and possibly use dmc floss and embroider some designs on it. I'll have to doodle up some ideas.

Other ideas:

Hamburger ear bud case
Easter egg ear bud case

Too many ideas! So little time!

My first post...

The picture above is my very first amigurumi pattern. I love this little cheeseburger so much, that I haven't let the cats play with it yet!

I've been crocheting like a mad woman this past winter. I'm wondering if I will ever stop. Most of the things I crochet are small enough for my cats to play with. Right now they all fit into a box, but at the rate I'm going... I'm going to need a couple more boxes. :)

I've been thinking about joining esty, but it seems like a lot of work. Also I think I would get really disappointed if none of my stuff sells. Hmmm... The idea is still on the table, but I'm going to think about it some more.

Right now I'm working on an angry lion. I have his body and mane done, and also his legs. I have to sew on his legs, and make him a tail and he will be finished. The lion is my favorite pattern. I've been thinking about making a series of them with different facial expressions, sad, happy, angry, etc.

More pictures soon!!
