Lambie, the Lalylala Lamb

Have you heard about Lalylala by Lydia Tresselt? This site has the cutest amigurumi crochet patterns!

I bought her Lupo the Lamb pattern from Lalylala's Ravelry store last year but never had the chance to make it until now. I initially wanted to make this to give as a gift for one of my nieces this Christmas but the little girl at home saw it and begged and begged to let her have it so...

Anyway, since Andrea likes Lambie from Doc McStuffins, and she doesn't have a Lambie doll, I decided to make Lupo the Lamb using Lambie's colors and this is what I ended up with.

My finished product is BIG... Around 15 inches. I did not use the suggested hook size because the yarn I used is also not the suggested yarn weight. But I don't really mind because the little girl loves it :)

Once Upon a Dream

I am too lazy to check if I already used this title in a previous post. However, since this post is about princesses (since you know, I am raising one... at least one that feels she is one), I thought the title fitting.

From left to right: Aurora, Rapunzel, Bell and Cinderella. All costumes crocheted by me :)
She loves princesses, I collect Sylvanian Families / Calico Critters... you put them together and you can see my daughter and I get along very well :)

The Dragon's Hoard

So you know all those time I spent not blogging? Most of that time was spent being a responsible adult... you know, working and caring for the family. But all that time, I had dreams of time... spare time to be able to do the things I love, and right now that's crochet. And I wanted to be ready for when the time comes so I bought and bought and bought supplies... until...

My dragon hoard.
And no, I don't sell what I make. For some reason... I was thinking this is all for personal use only and I just wanted to make sure I have the colors I will need, whatever that color is, for when I get the time and find a perfect project to make. 

So now you know that everyone will be getting something hooked from me for Christmas.
