Favorite Pattern Giveaway!!

1

In case you missed the fun, yesterday we had a popularity contest for the Greybriar Hollow pattern.  It was definitely fun!  There was one clear winner, but before we get to that, lets take a look at the runners up.  This was definitely a contest for the record books.  And the contenders were all as different as they could be.

First up in 2nd place was Sharknado.  In like a whirling dervish, this is the pattern who definitely preferred cutting up in shop class over academics.  Sharknado is not limited by what science tells us can happen, but is always up for a ripping good time.

In 3rd pace we have Lucy Morbid.  She is the creepy pattern who sits in the corner and makes cryptic and dark comments to other patterns.  She is the one you go to when you need to learn more about the darker side of ami making.

In 4th place, is Fat Unicorn.  She is the chubby pattern who is super nice to everyone, but really doesn’t fit into any specific group.  She is too short and round to fit in with the other unicorns and their vain beauty, but everyone loves her anyway.

In 5th place, is everyone’s favorite witch pattern.  Winnifred is just waiting to be made for some unsuspecting child so she can practice putting spells on them.  She is still seeking youth, even though she is always going to be same age since she will of course be made from yarn.

In 6th place is Sugar Skull Cat.  She is the artsy pattern, all about freedom of expression and letting your true colors show.  There is no wrong way to add color and design in her world.  She loves it all equally, but she tends to be caught up in art to the exclusion of all else.

And last in 7th place is everyone’s favorite couple.  Eartha and Edgar Fox pattern is just an all around fun time, and everyone loves them.  They are kind and thoughtful, the kind of pattern everyone wants to be around.

And now, the time has come to announce our winner.  Like any beauty queen, she came out WAY ahead, but her message is one of peace of serenity.  She has no idea of her own grace, content to spend her time bringing joy to others……Serenity!!!

FNAF Foxy with LED Eyes

0

I have made Foxy before, but for my daughter’s birthday I wanted to do something really special.  With some help from my husband, I made this Foxy, complete with LED lights in the eyes.  The wires run through his head, inside his body and to a special pocket in his rump that opens.  She can push the button and light up his eyes.  His arms and legs are moveable as well.  This is one of my all time favorite projects!

Sometimes A Swap Calls for Barf

0

I run a series of swaps between a very amazing and talented group of designers and amigurumi artists. Its amazing how being around a group of people like that makes a person want to step up their game.  Why, you might ask, would I title this post ANYTHING about barfing then?   It just so happens that the theme of this particular swap was Hollywood- films and tv shows.  And it just so happens that my swap partner is a big fan of the Exorcist.  What better and more iconic scene is out there, than the splt pea soup barfing scene?  If there is one, I don’t know what it might be.  And so, I had to.  Eventually (like in the next week) the pattern will be revised from this doll, and go off to testers to be released on Ravelry.  But for now, I can rest easy knowing the possessed has left my house and is in transit across the US. Regan 3.jpg

Creepy Cute and Dark Fantasy is my Yarn and Stuffing

0

I have been hooking for 6 years now.  Amigurumi or crochet toys are my favorite things to make, but more and more often, I am not finding the things I want to make in pattern for- Can you believe I am the first and thus far only person to make a Sharknado Crochet Pattern?  And creepy China dolls? Yep I am on it.  How about some World of Warcraft classes and races?  Making those too.  If you can imagine it cute and creepy or just plain creepy, I am probably working on it!   I am fortunate enough to have some very talented artists in my life who have made some really cool drawings for me that have been turned into patterns so far- including Lucy Morbid, and there are so many more on the way.  I can be found on Facebook, on Etsy– for finished items and on Ravelry for patterns.  I hope to see you around the Hollow, especially on foggy and rainy days, when it seems like anything can happen.  That’s when most of my creatures come out to play. Grim and Glum.jpg
