Before I show you my latest project, I want to make a statement about A LOT of questions that I've been receiving.
A lot of people stumble either upon my blog, Craftster or Instructables and asking me questions about my Lego Minifigure.
First of all, I will not be giving, or selling the pattern anytime soon. I have never heard back from Lego after my email, and to be honest, I'm quite glad the project is behind me. I do have the pattern written down somewhere, but really, it won't be anytime soon when I actually get down to writing it all out. I'm really sorry if this upsets anyone, as I get questions at least once a week on it, but it was A LOT of work, and more time than I've ever put into a project. It would just be a lot of work as well to write out everything about the creation.
And now, my second order of business. I'm truly SO GLAD that I get emails and comments from people saying that they want to crochet like me. I'm really so flattered by all of the wonderful comments I get! However, that being said, I cannot teach people how to crochet via my blog. I'm so sorry though! But, I will list some AMAZING resources and some book ideas to help anyone out!
I'm pretty much self-taught, and these are some of the things that REALLY helped me out!
#1. Youtube.com. Honestly, if there's ANYTHING you want to learn how to crochet, just go to youtube. I'm much more of a visual learner, and so it's just wonderful.
#2. Giggle all you want, Crocheting for Dummies really helped me learn to crochet! There's also some patterns in there. It really walks you through everything you need to know, and teaches from beginner to intermediate crocheting.
#3. If you haven't heard of The Happy Hooker then shame on you! To be honest, I've only made a couple things in this book, but it's just great resource to check back to every once in a while for a refresher course.
Ok. Those are my top 3. I have a ton of other books, but honestly, those are my favorite resources. If you have any questions, or want to know my opinion on other books that you've seen, then feel free to leave a comment and I can bring that up in my next post! And I really wish everyone the best of luck in their crocheting endeavors. I promise you, YOU CAN DO IT!
I'm also going to do another blog sometime about the yarns that I use, because I've had quite a few questions about that too. :)
And, onto my latest project! I bought this pattern after falling completely in love with it after seeing it on Craftster. You can buy the pattern here!
I've purchased April Draven's patterns before, and to be honest, they're some of my favorite patterns out there. This hat, I LOOOOOVE. I used different yarn, and I can let you know if you would like. AND, I think I may have conquered Homespun!
Anyways, ONTO THE PICTURES!
Ok. That's all for today! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week, and I"m sure I'll be back soon. :)
