I've made the Gingerbread Guy with so many slightly different proportions. It is time to pick one and get the pattern up. This is the first pattern I've written, and although simple, it is a learning experience. Especially the computer part. Need to learn how to make a pdf file!

I've been working out my own pattern for gingerbread men. I want a pattern that is fairly quick with a minimal amount of sewing so people can make a lot of them! I have had this thing with Gingerbread Men ever since the first Shrek movie. My friends give me Gingerbread related stuff for Christmas. It's time that I gave back! I'll be posting the pattern soon after some tweaks.

I made these for Planet June's Christmas Crochet-Along. I did the striped and patterned ones. These are fun to make and give the tree a warm "crocheted sweater" feel to the tree! I have more crochet-along patterns to do for this contest.

I practiced rings and chains last night. I'm starting to feel more comfortable holding the thread and manipulating it. Today, on a whim, I ordered online a cro-tat hook. Cro-tatting looks fun too. And since I'm a crocheter, why not? I've been working on my cable stitch sampler and learning how to tat recently. When I say I'm addicted to amigurumi, I'm not kidding! Even though I'm enjoying doing these other things, if I don't make something cute with a face soon I'm gonna go nuts!! I'm thinking a quick hamster from June Gilbank's new book "Complete Idiots Guide to Amigurumi" might give me the cute fix I need! I'm too new at tatting to tat something cute at this point.

So, I haven't been successful at brushing amigurumi because I've been using the wrong kind of brush! I was trying to brush with a plastic tipped cat brush. I got a wire dog brush and wow! It works! Instant fuzzballs! I rebrushed the cactus and now look at it!
|Now the cacti that are supposed to be fuzzy are fuzzy!|

Skunk is a cute amigurumi critter I crocheted using "Cute Little Dudes - Forest Dwellers vol.3" pattern by Lisa Vanvikaas (hattalahutta). Skunk loves the outdoors! Every year, my dad and his friends go canoeing in the boundary waters of Minnesota and Canada. They have been doing this since before I was born. I have never been on this trip. For the last two years, my brother Steve has gone with him. I believe I haven't gone because the portages sound very strenuous! This year, Skunk decided to go. Maybe next year I might go... If someone carries the canoe for me on portages!

I crocheted an apple wedge for my chinchilla (apple pattern from Tasty Crochet)
|I got a new book, Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman. Then I realized I hadn't done anything from her previous book I purchased, so I did a couple of patterns from Beond the Square Crochet Motifs. |
