Work in Progress

WIP: Fibonacci Star

Here we have the first five numbers in the Fibonacci sequence modeled by the rows in a baby blanket I’m making.

(In case the captions aren’t working out for you, the first five numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 1, 1, 2, 3, and 5 in that order.)

So yeah. This was based off an idea I had while brainstorming for a commission that didn’t pan out. But I thought, whatever. I want to make it anyway. So that’s what I’m doing.

The pattern I’m using for everything except color changes is the Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket, which happens to be, like, the single most popular star shaped blanket on Ravelry I think. That could have changed by the time you’re reading this (Hello, the future). Either way, it’s a solid pattern and I really like the way it’s turning out so far.

Tiny Crochet Jellyfish

I did it again. This time its a jellyfish.


So yeah. This is another spur of the moment inspiration that I worked up right after I thought of it. Of course, I was procrastinating really, really hard at the time, but it only took an hour to make and anyway I needed the break.

Anyway, I’m really proud of the way this turned out. I’ve spent the past two days playing around with it in between bouts of essay writing, which I think is the mark of a well-made toy. I’m also excited that now the octopus isn’t the only aquatic animal in my arsenal.

The pattern is here. Use as you will. Send me a picture if you make one. I’d love to see it.

WIP: Unicorn

This is a unicorn head.


No, really.

Last year, my mom pointed me to a pattern sale being held by Holly’s Hobbies, and told me to pick out a pattern she didn’t already have. Naturally, I chose the unicorn. It looks like a really good pattern, and I’m excited for when I finally finish it, but I clearly haven’t made it very far. Right now, it kinda looks like a white gourd.

So yeah. This week also marks the culmination (basically) of one of my major academic projects, so hopefully I’ll have more time to crochet soon. Especially since I’m kinda running out of works in progress to talk about. I think I have, like, one or two more.

But seriously, though. Holly’s Hobbies designs are really good, and I encourage you to check them out if you like amigurumi. I’m gonna go back to studying now.

Crochet Easter Eggs


This is only two days after Easter. That’s fine, right? I’m not that late.

This is just a quick little idea I had. I made these in maybe an hour. I think they’re pretty cute. Mostly I was excited about taking a cute picture of them with my little rabbit.

I did make a pattern for them because I like to be thorough. You can find it here.

That’s it for this week. See you guys next Tuesday.
