I've always wanted to learn how to crochet and about three years ago (er.. Spring of 2011), I finally had the time to crack open some books and start learning (In hindsight, Youtube might have been much easier). After a lot of practice making scarves, I began making plushes and have stuck mostly with that ever since (it's just so satisfying getting a toy after all that work :D). I focus on making animated/fan art characters because I enjoy working on them. The majority of these are my own original patterns besides a couple with link references to the patterns.

Regarding patterns, I have a few posted up. Because I learned so much from patterns that many people generously shared online, I'm hoping to give back a little by sharing some too :) I don't write all of them down though because I sometimes don't know how to describe what I'm doing when they get too complicated and I start winging things. I'm working on it though!

As for commissions, unfortunately, I don't do those. I don't really know how to set a price that would be fair for both parties and I just don't have the time! I will probably be much less productive for some time since I'm currently in dental school, but I'll be needing my study breaks :)

Thanks for the page visit :D

P.S. Please excuse my lack of photography skills!


If you would like to make a donation to fuel my yarn addiction and for the free patterns, I would be ever-so grateful! :dummy:

Hello!

I may not be finishing anything new for some time, so I figured I'd update you guys on what's going on in my yarn world and real life. :)  I also enjoyed reading where all of you are from in my recent poll!  I didn't realize I was in touch with so many aliens! =P

I decided to start a new project, despite all the unfinished stuff laying around.  I'm currently working on Deku Link!  It was meant to be a relatively quick project, but I of course started making him larger than I was planning to ^^;  And, after looking at all these photos online, there are so many details that I guess I had never noticed before I seriously decided to make him!  He may turn out proportional or slightly large compared to Skull Kid, but we shall see!  Cross your fingers for the former!  I am also almost done with an orange tiger in the same style as the white one.. it's just a matter of assembling.

End of crochet update so you may stop reading if you'd like :XD:

I'm currently fretting a little over taking my part I boards for school since my brain pretty much dumped 80% of what I've learned the past 2 years.  I have a little over a month to study, and on top of that, I'm trying not to seem completely clueless in clinic ^^;  I'm actually starting to enjoy meeting new people and improving my communication skills since I've always felt weak in that aspect.  I did run into a difficult patient the other day because of language barriers and probably age difference.  I won't go into too much detail with that.. she basically would not believe the explanation and treatment I proposed for her (a very quick, conservative, zero-cost procedure), even with my professor's support.  It was a good learning experience in dealing with patients, I suppose. :shrug:

Anyway, I am exhausted :faint:  Back to work!

Ganondorf WIP by aphid777
Ganondorf WIP
I am so incredibly excited about this latest project! :)  Even though I am not very far at all yet, the head/face is always so tricky for me.  I am quite happy with how it looks so far without any facial features.  This King of Darkness is going to be pretty huge.. not proportional to the other characters I've made though because that would just be crazy.. but still pretty large.. I'm estimating at least 2 feet tall :dummy:  I don't think I could have made him any smaller without sacrificing facial details soooooo.... I guess that's all.  Happy weekend everyone! :dance:

The wonderful thing about Tiggers by aphid777
The wonderful thing about Tiggers
I forgot to post this up yesterday.. but here is baby Tigger!  I was considering giving him to a friend, but now I'm not so sure I can part with him :XD:  His muzzle is all needle felted, as well as the stripes on his body and his face.  I ended up not writing a pattern for him since there was such extensive needle felting and not a lot of crocheted shaping in his face.  Hope you guys like him! :)

Tanooki by aphid777
Tanooki
This funny squirrel-raccoon thing is apparently called a tanooki (tanuki)?  I think this particular one is from some manga.  My brother wanted one and since his birthday is coming up, I figured it was a good time to make it.  Took me several hours to finish.. the arms, feet, and dark brown markings are needle felted.  Hope you guys like him! :)

your crocheting skills are like jedi status. I felt like i hit a wall in figuring out my own ways around crocheting but your work definitely has inspired me to take it up again when i have the time :D 
What is your favorite type of brand yarn ? All of your stitches are snug and uniformed! @_@!!!

As a male crochet fan (yes, they exist, although I'm not as straight as my crochet hook ;-) ) I'm just blown away by your work! You have an extraordinary talent!  Love from Flanders (Belgium)! Christoph
