Crochet Kits

I've gotten so many questions about where to buy yarn, safety eyes, joints and requests to help out and put together kits with all the materials needed, so anyone can recreate the toys I have made. So, here they are - kits for my most popular patterns.

Little Owlet Patterns

When I first found Little Owlet patterns I was instantly hooked, I just love the size and body shape so much. Plus Marina really knows how to style a beautiful photo.

The patterns aren't really beginner friendly since they have no step-by-step photos or tutorials, but if you're familiar with all the techniques, they're not difficult to follow at all.

Fox pattern update

When I first wrote the fox pattern almost three years ago, I really wanted to use worsted weight yarn, but couldn't find a yarn thick enough in the right colors, so decided to crochet my fox holding two strands of yarn together. Which made the photos a bit confusing for some crocheters. Also, I wasn't really happy with the colors, I thought the photos could be better, pattern just a tad more clear and concise in places. Plus the neck joint was causing a bit of trouble for some of you. And we can't have that, now can we.

Deer pattern

Creating patterns has been my job for over four years now, but still it never feels like a chore. Starting something new always gets me so excited and my heart jumps with joy when I finally get to show you what I've come up with and you love it as much as I do. Thank you!

Yarn addict in rehab

I just love all kinds of yarn, from humble rustic wool to luxurious silk, from traditional flax to acrylic and nylon, not to mention exotic fibers like milk protein. There's no better way to spend an afternoon than going to yarn stores and looking and feeling and oohing and aahing and, more often than not, bringing home bags full of beautiful yarn. Although I  usually have no clear picture in mind what projects I am going to use it for. And as you may have guessed, my yarn stash pretty quickly grew out of its designated storage area. 

Which lead to a new rule - no new yarn will be bought until I can fit it all back in the boxes. I could have gone around it by just getting more boxes and taking over the living room or giving away some of the yarn, but the sensible thing was to use it up. And the sensible route I went.

Going through it I found quite a large collection of fingering weight cotton yarn, which is a bit too fine to use when taking photos for patterns, but perfect for making really cute and small, but detailed toys - my favorite kind. It was quite relaxing mixing patterns and  just crocheting and not having to think about explaining each detail, although I found myself doing it anyway.

Small Sitting Fox

I love foxes, so I thought I'd make another one, this time a small sitting version. You can pick up a copy of the pattern on Etsy, Ravelry or Craftsy.
