My brother and I were/still are obsessed with that movie, and we played it all the time growing up. Because of my dino nostalgia, I decided that I wanted to make his gift this year instead of buying one and thought a little amigurumi dinosaur would be perfect! I searched through a lot of patterns but had a hard time finding one I actually liked until I stumbled onto this pattern which ended up working perfectly.
I love all their stuff, but they are so expensive! A really cool thing I noticed while walking around the store was that a lot of the decorations had a homemade look or was even knitted or crocheted which is great because that means I can recreate things I see for a fraction of the price or even free.
There were so many good photo opportunities that I would have loved to share but can’t. Of it is always the times that you forget your camera that something crazy happens and this was one of those times. It was a beautiful day out perfect temperature, the fish weren’t really biting, but that was ok, it’s just nice to sit out there and enjoy the waves.
If you are a fan of the show Parks and Recreation and appreciate a cute a crochet you have probably noticed the adorable granny square afghan on the back of Ann’s couch.
Through a little bit googling I found that I am not alone in loving this afghan but I couldn’t find a pattern. So, I made my own! I was however very excited to find the schematic for the blanket from Captain Hook’s Crochet Nook. Click here to check it out.
