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

I like to think that I'm a pretty tolerant person.. and I hoped that I would never have to post something like this..

As many of you know, I post up a few free patterns.  I do this because back when I was starting out, many people were generous enough to do the same for me.  The only two things I've requested though, was for people to credit me and for them to not sell the finished product.  I'm very picky about shaping so it takes me hours and hours to figure out the exact shape and proportions that I want.  I have taken things apart and re-made pieces countless times to get it as close to perfect as I possibly can.  And to top that off, I absolutely hate typing up patterns.  It's extremely tedious when I can easily decipher the numbers I have, the way they are.  I remember that I love you guys though, so I suck it up and type it up.

So when someone tells me, that "legally", they can sell things made from my patterns if they want, it's like a punch to the stomach.  Yes, I know I can't stop you from selling things made from my patterns and yes, I know that legally you can.  However, I gain nothing from posting patterns.  I am relying solely on people's honesty to respect the two little things I've requested.

It's a little discouraging to have to deal with these kind of people, but I know that the majority of you are not like that.  Know that I appreciate that you appreciate the patterns I have posted.  It always puts a smile on my face when I get to see photos of what has been made from my patterns :)  So onward we go!  Let us continue to populate the world with yarn creations! :la:

Your work is spectacular. My girl does similar work and thought she was alone in the world. She finds obscure mythical creatures from different cultures and makes them with crochet... I am so sad to read about the people taking advantage of your generosity. It is a huge sacrifice for you to write up your patterns... for some one to say they can legally sell them, let alone do so... they are truly without honor.
