For my love of yarn....

I've not been very well since Monday as I came down quite suddenly with a pretty bad cold / cough / sore throat thing. I'm so rarely ill and usually shake things off pretty quickly but this one really got me this time. :( Still, even though not fully recovered yet I'm much better now.

I've not felt much like crocheting this week and spent a lot of time playing my Nintendo DS. (Just completed The World Ends With You today and recommend it). :) But my boyfriend treated me today to a new storage thingie for my yarn. :) This is what I've been spending part of my afternoon setting up.

I'm so chuffed with it and it's much better than my last one which I'd outgrown i suppose by gradually getting more and more yarn. :) Much tidier. I couldn't fit all of it in the picture though as it it a little taller but you get the idea.

Amigurumi Panda

Recently I watched Kung Fu Panda for the first time - hadn't seen it before but I think pandas are so cute. After that it made me want to crochet a panda and I ended up with this little thing. :) It's available for adoption at my etsy shop of course. :)

It's only the second panda I've made and the first one was done over a year ago now. Was nice to do something different. :)

Lucky little owl

My amigurumi grey owl seems to be bringing me some good luck this weekend. :) Yesterday I woke up to discover it in the gift guide on etsy and now it's on the etsy front page. :D

That was good timing actually as I'd been watching a film this morning and it finished so I had lunch, thought I'd see what was going on in the world of etsy and there it was, on the front page. Woo hoo! :D Managed to get a screen grab before it goes. :)

A nice surprise and freebies on offer. :)

I woke up to a lovely surprise this morning. :) I woke up to discover that my Amigurumi Grey Owl is in the Halloween Trends Gift Guide on etsy. :) I'm so chuffed as that doesn't happen to me very much at all.... in fact only once before so it got my day off to a great start.

And because I'm feeling so happy I've also decided to offer some freebies from my etsy shop. :) I'm near approaching 200 sales and I thought it would be nice to give away freebies to my next ten customers. So if you've been thinking about buying anything now would be a cool time to do it as you'll get that and then a little something cute as a freebie. Can't be bad! :)

Amigurumi Acorn

Following on from my autumn owl post last time I thought I would introduce my little amigurumi acorn. :) I like acorns and had fun making this little one, now available on my etsy shop.

I had hoped to make a couple more in different shades of brown but not had a chance yet but maybe over the weekend I will get there. :)
