Busy and a New Venture

Alot has been going on and I have been super busy. Between working, testing pattern and getting caught up on orders there is never a dull moment for me!

Recently I made the decision to begin writing crochet patterns. My specialty is Amigurumi. For those that are unfamiliar with Ami as it is called, it is a style of crochet where rounds are worked continously with no joining until the end of the piece. I have alot of ideas running around in my head. I had thought I was going to start with one thing and ending up deciding on another. In between pattern tests and orders, I will be working up my first ever pattern and I am hoping to release it around the beginning of September, sooner if I can get it worked up and to testers quickly.

I am proud to say that my first pattern will be for an Amigurumi version of the US Air Force’s Hercules C-130, affectionately known as the Herky Bird to his pilots, co-pilots and navigators. This plane by no means will be a small Ami toy LOL. He is a special request from my sister who is a Captain in the Air Force and I hoping that I do her proud with him. I will be posting WIP pictures of him as I get parts worked up.
