Remember your favourite shows when you were a kid? Ah, fond memories. I wonder how many were actually super annoying for our parents to watch with us? (I'm looking at you, Barney and Caillou.) I was fortunate enough to grow up with such Canadian classics as Fred Penner, Mr. Dressup, Polka Dot Door, Today's Special… Continue reading A Crocheted Mochi
I try to keep my ear to the ground for any Star Wars related news, so when this behind-the-scenes video was released for the new Star Wars movie, I was over the moon. I've watched it several times and paused it in multiple places to try and get a better look at all of the… Continue reading A New (Porg) Hope
Well, I suppose I need to start this post by way of some updates ... First of all: I finished my teacher's education program. Yay! About a month ago, I attended my graduation ceremony (it was actually my first time on the 'official' campus - oops) and ended up sitting a few rows in front… Continue reading Another Chico
As I frequently do, I went on a little bit of an amigurumi binge last week. I was inspired by someone at teacher's college who also LOVES crochet and is venturing into amigurumi making! (Isn't it so exciting to meet someone else who understands your craft obsession?) So, I decided to make a ninja. But… Continue reading New Amigurumi Buddies
Woah. This, I have to say, is a little bit of a milestone for me. My 100th post on this blog. Have I really had that much to say over the past year-and-a-half? Apparently, I have. And I've had a blast doing it. When I started the blog, I wanted a place to write down… Continue reading The Hundredth

They used to be a forrest green colour, but now they are bright and happy! Anyway, the table and chair adventure is another post… Continue reading An Amigurumi Shelf
Okay, here is the pattern! Wow, it's been a while since I've made a pattern. I hope you have fun with it! (I sure have been). The pattern is a pdf - you can click on the picky, or you can click here. Penguins for EVERYONE!!
PENGUINS!!1!!1!!!! I love penguins. They're cute (for starters), they walk all silly on land AND they have ridiculously low drag in water. My fluid dynamics professor once said, 'If you want to lower the drag on a football, just throw it into the ocean and wait a million years until it evolves into a penguin'.… Continue reading Penguins!!
While I've been happily working away at my Granny Stripe blanket in my spare time (see last post), lately I've also whipped up a new little amigurumi. It's a hippo! This little guy was specially requested, so I ended up using a body similar to my elephant pattern and coming up with a hippo head.… Continue reading It’s a Hippo!
Nom ... Nom Nom ... Nom Nom Nom ... Pacman pattern time! It took me long enough to get my act together with this pattern (considering that this has been in the pipelines, almost done for a whiiile now), but now it's ready! Here it is, as a companion piece to the Pacman Ghost pattern:… Continue reading Pacman Pattern Time
