Wow. I am so in love with this city. I always knew in my heart I would end up here some day, and now that it is a reality, I almost can't believe it. I'm close to the rest of my family, I've already made awesome friends, my bf and I are happier than ever... I can't wait to start school!

Here are the amigurumi I made a few weeks ago. I've been watching a lot of Adventure Time With Finn and Jake and I want to make everything from it as amigurumi! I couldn't find a pattern for Gunther, one of the Ice King's penguins, so I made these guys instead. I am in the process of making a few patterns of characters from the show. Hopefully I'll get them done before I move.

So yeah, I got one for graduation, which is part of why I haven't posted in forever. The other reason is being in between moving. There are about two weeks until I throw all of my stuff in a moving van and drag Brian to the cold awesomeness of Chicago.
I'm really excited to start grad school and be in a new city. But I'm still figuring the whole apartment thing out.
I'm going to post more projects as soon as I can get some good pictures going. It's been so rainy though...

A few days after graduation I managed to faint and smash my face on a chair, giving me two lacerations, one on my eyelid and the other on my cheek. Which gave me lots of time to sit around and crochet. I've gotten quite a few projects done in the last few weeks.

Three weeks until graduation! I sort if can't believe I made it. The bf and I are moving to Chicago at the end of summer because I got into Roosevelt university for grad school. I can't wait to actually be able to use all the cold weather stuff that I've made (and get a head start on some cozy patterns!) I'm going to miss nola, but I always hoped I would end up in Chi-town.
To get ready for the move I've decided to use up all the yarn that has taken over my room. I have a blanket going along with all sorts of amigurumi friends. I'm still planning on starting my etsy store by June. I just need to get some pictures going and write/edit the patterns I'm hoping to sell. It is spring break now, so I might finally be able to get that done.
I wanted to mention my new handmade/craft/art love: wheel thrown ceramics. More on that later!

How did all that time go by so fast? And with no posts from me T_T. I'm going to post a lot more now, because I finally got the blogger app on my phone!
I have been crafting up a storm lately,upcycling mardi gras beads into lampshades, making paper flowers, and making lots of progress on the bottle cap table. But I haven't picked up a hook in about a month, but I woke up this morning and saw the ridiculous pile that my stash has become. I'm going to start blasting through my ravelry queue as soon as I get my projects turned in on Friday.
I'm also starting to plan out what I'm going to do with my Etsy store, which I plan on opening in June!

When I haven't been practicing or frantically doing projects I've actually been making a lot of progress on projects. I've been making tons of hats for people, and trying to get some of my decoration and furniture projects going.
Right now I'm making a hat for Mo, a circle scarf and a panda amigurumi.
I'm going to post pics of all the projects I've finished in the last month tomorrow!
