So, I've been thinking of doing this for a while- putting a spotlight on some of the blogs/other sites I come across
while I mindlessly browse for hours on the interwebs. It'll put a spotlight on some maybe not-so-well-known blogs (and maybe some more-well-known blogs...mostly of the crafty or geeky nature), as well as let me have a reference of a particular site that I stumbled across and forgot to bookmark. I iz forgetful sometimez.
Anywho, I saw this post on Craftster for a crocheted Conan O'brien. I thought it totally rocked! I loved this since I think Conan is hilarious and since I think that people that do amigurumi are amazing. I hate doing single crochet. HATE.IT. I would rather wipe my rear with a pine cone than complete row after row of single crochet. Don't get me wrong- I know it's a necessary evil in the world of crochet. My Koopa Coin Purse was done in single crochet. Thus, it smells like a forest every time I pass gas. (HA! I couldn't even finish typing that without LOLing for reals. I crack myself up.)
Ok, I digress. She had her blog (Crafty is Cool) listed in her signature, so I clicked it to see what else she has to offer. AMAZING! She has some free ami patterns up- including this one for an a-freakin'-dorable power-up mushroom!
She has some other awesome toys as well as some patterns on her etsy site. Hopefully she'll be updating her blog with other patterns or pictures of her FO- great stuff Allison!
