Yarn yarn yarn...

Got new yarn ^^

 100% finnish wool. So warm and soft. Colours should be a little brighter and the "green" should be neon green. My "lighting" doesn't give any justice :/ I'm thinking of making legwarmers from these yarns. Or maybe mittens... And now for something completely different:

My Totoro Brothers. Very, very old pic from my previous apartment. I still haven't found right yarn for the medium sized Totoro. Maybe someday... I used Heavens_hellcat's patterns; Grey Totoro and White Totoro. Grey's pattern was for Blue Totoro, but I used grey and made the ears longer.

Baby Vulpix. She was so cute I had to make her! Pattern is from Adorably Kawaii's blog when the pattern was available. Because of pattern stealing, she took the pattern down. I was lucky I managed to finish it before that. And now I don't have the pattern *sob* Someday I count the pattern from the amigurumi so I can make another one. Mine is little different from the original one. I made the tail and hair curly because I didn't like the "tubes". Nicer this way ^^

Big brother Cthulhu. He is my very first amigurumi. It was hard to make this because I had to translate the pattern into finnish.And before this I had only made granny squares. Added more tentacles to puff him.

And here is he's little brother. Made the pattern in my head. I wrote the pattern to a piece of paper but I can't find it anywhere. I know I still have it somewhere safe. Safe = lost in a paper pile. He has tiny feet and arms. And a belly button. Wings were hell to make. Had to make it over and over again before getting the right shape.

Hellöy Again. Long time no see.

Life have done funny things and this blog was the first thing I had to give a break. Sorry for everyone. Now life doesn't give lemons so I have some time and interest to write here.

Lovely. Blogger has changed again. More learning. More somesome.. More lost! *sob sob*
I deal with it later. I have done so much things it will take ages to put everything here. I try my best to do it quickly. And trying not to make it in to a one big fuzz. I start with pics and put patterns later. It's gonna be awfully big job to translate from "how many sc and stuff per layer" to "how you really do it". Maybe I put the hard ones first and translate them later... Let's see ;D I sart with taking pics with my phone's camera. I know, poor quality but I can't afford buying a better cam'ra.

But now I go to make some gingerbread dough!

Hallo thar!

I'm n00b in this kind of business but I try my best. So let see what will happen.

Hello again!

  I'm from northern Finland, where we have polarbears and snow all the time. Kidding. Just dark and white during winter and sun 24/7 in summertime. So no sleep without dimming curtains. During winter, I use different kinds of lights to make my home "a nest". Bright colours and 70's flowercurtains. Just love 'em.

 With a kiddo I don't have enough time for crafts. But I still do them. When I should be sleeping -.- Hip-hip-horray! My imagination isn't so good, so I use google alot to get inspirations. And everybody else's toys are so godamn cute *sob sob*.

 I try to make my pages to look like me, but it will take me some time. I try to write atleast once a week. Maybe. Possibly :D

P.S. I apologise for my future typo's. English isn't my native language, so there will be lil' mistakes. I hope you get the point.

But hey, let's get it started!
