Was up you guys, its Friday! Isn’t it funny how the weekend makes you more happier? Unless you have to work then my bad!
So just a few things to get the post rolling is it’s MAY! I did not blog yesterday because I hate Star Wars and could not deal with the may 4th jokes, like I mean this once time it was funny and it was like oh I see what you did but now i feel it’s really annoying.
Yup, I have no sense of humor. I am the ice queen.
The point of it being May is that it’s my one year anniversary from when I started to crochet and this time last year I ordered my first set of hooks after buying one hook and trying to imitate a Youtube video, failing at making a blanket and CRYING like the drama queen that i am *AND BREATHE*
So this whole month is dedicated to me learning how to crochet! I remember telling you guys that i started last year and i may of been a little off with when etc but thanks to Facebook memories – I got this.
In other news, Day 5 and smoke free. I am not sleeping well, i didn’t sleep til around 5:00AM but i was super tired by like midnight but couldn’t sleep, i then woke up at 8:00am feeling fresh BUT i managed to go back sleep kind of got up at 11 which i needed the rest. I feel really good in regards of craving but i have a cough coming and my nose is blocked, which is a mixture of allergies. I am hungry more, so i’ll be doing a grocery shop but making sure i have mostly healthy stuff. I don’t want to smoke again but it’s been a struggle this week. It feels like it’s been a month, i cried a lot yesterday LOL and just felt weird in general within myself but i think the main with-drawel symptoms have gone. Not sure what to expect next, i think it’s my anxiety i need to control.
So here is my moomin
Let’s take a minute to appreciate the Moomins! They are so god damn cute and in a way they are like strange looking hippos LOL. I loved this when i was a kid and i just enjoy the loveliness they represent.
I wanted to make something cute and different, also in replace of Mr Fox as he will be burnt and abused next week for my CE testing.
This was a free pattern which you can get Moomin amigurum free pattern
Amigurumi.today is so awesome for free patterns, I have the app on my phone. I’m using a Samsung so not sure if it’s on Iphones I imagine so! I didn’t use the app to make this i had my laptop open, it also gives you a chance to print the PDF file. Which I am going to do. I want to get a collection of patterns printed off.
This was so easy to make, i did spend like 6 hours doing it because I was kind of watching The Designated Survivor on Netflix LOL! I took breaks also in between etc.
It says 2.5 – 3 i think for hooks, i used a 2.00MM as for some reason doing amigurumi my tension isn’t the tightest so i always go down a size. I used white DK yarn and some safety eyes.
From head to foot it measures 10 inches down. I did not like attaching the head to the body, it was quite awkward and i think I will change this when i make another once as i plan on making a few different colours and have them sold on my website but obviously I need to do CE testing so i can sell teddies and things.
I really love him! He’s been my favourite amigurumi i’ve ever made. Can’t wait to make more!
I’d love to see if you guys make one of these 😀 I think the pattern could be adjusted to make them bigger or smaller. I like the size the way it is though I kind of like the idea of a HUGE moomin!
That’s all for today, my computer desk has arrive so I’ve got my bedroom to sort out. I actually didn’t think it was coming today so big up to Amazon for last minute shit but also quick delivery! I have like 4 more things from Amazon I am waiting for, one big and the rest are nifty little things to use for blogging purposes and taking pictures.
It’s kind of a money saver tbh so i will do a post on that.
I also made some stickers for my website, but I have started to change my site again as i wasn’t happy so I may of wasted some sheets on current logo design and wasted some as i made a mistake in printing. All part of the learning curve. No more changing the site i am 100% happy!
What are your plans this weekend? I hope you have fun whatever you do 😀 & stay safe!
