The start of something bigger.

The time has come….

to venture off of FB and start pursuing other avenues to branch out on my business. I’m not big on Twitter and I don’t really manual pin on Pinterest so my other real choice is to blog. I could use Instagram but it’s mainly used for photos and I talk a lot… I mean A LOT! I figure blogging would be a great way for me to put all of my skills to use. I can post my photos, tell you guys a story and keep everything all in one place.

So, let me introduce myself. I’m Amanda. I love to crochet. I started out making hats and ear warmers. Working in the round was tough to learn at first but now I love it. Here are a few of the hats I’ve recently made. The messy bun hats have been really popular lately. Second to them are the slouch hats which is in the bottom photo.

Over the last year I have started making amigurimis. What’s an amigurumi? Well, it’s a crochet animal that is stuffed. I started out making the unicorn you see in the top photo below and then moved on to the adorable unicorn cupcakes. Since then, I’ve made several stuffies for people. They’ve become my favorite by far lately.

And now that I’m comfortable with larger items, I’m making cardigans. I made the Movie Night Cardigan (top photo) last fall and sold it along with two others. Then I made myself a Viola Cardigan (bottom photo) and am now finishing up a second one for a customer.

So what do you guys think? Do you have a hobby that you love to do? I’d love to hear about it. Who knows, I may even find another hobby. Talk to you later!!!
