I just found this site. The awesome is completely overwhelming the crafty bits of my brain. There will be no sleep for days now.
My latest amigurumi venture is finished: a trio of baby dragons. Honestly, how much cuter could an almost completely useless item be?
Completed with some Red Heart worsted weight yarn, a size 8 crochet hook, and a few pairs of safety eyes, these dragons took about two weeks or so for me to start and finish. Mostly because around the end of the second one, I hurt my wrist (excessive crochet: who knew it could be so dangerous?)
I couldn’t say what it was that made me want to make a dragon. But at some point I came across this free crochet pattern and decided to try to make myself a little mythical creature of my own. Although, I didn’t actually follow Shannen’s pattern; I just based my own design on her’s. The most noticeable difference between patterns I think are the wings, the specs for which I think I’ll write down and post (if I’m able to remember it that is.)
I'm an all around artistically inclined, creative kind of girl.
Along with creative pursuits I like learning and solving problems and getting right to the bottom line. I'm a genuine science fiction fan, my cats are more important to me than anything - period - and I do my best to just be me.
And somehow I manage to balance my no-nonsense attitude with my limitless creativity and childlike love for cartoons and fuzzy animals for an all around okay life.
