Sally the snake was basically an accident. I was making something totally different (that I don’t want to reveal yet) that just didn’t work out, but in that failed experiment Sally was born! She is a cute little knit snake that lives in a pink polka dot and plaid box and loves to munch on yarn grass. I am hoping my relationship with Sally will help to end my fear of snakes and make me appreciate them a little bit more. Maybe that should be one of my New Year’s goals!
They are based on Lucy Ravensar’s designs, you can check out her patterns here. She has pretty much any Star Wars character you could possibly want to make, it’s awesome!
This project doubled as useful computer sleeve and yarn stash cleaner, unfortunately it won’t provide any real protection against falls but it sure is cute! I just dug out some fall leaf and snowflake inspired colors I already had and knitted away.

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.
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.

Round 6 is now complete, ending in the ch 2 space of corner 1. Round 7 begins here.
Round 7: Keep working in the same fashion as round 6. At the end of this round, cut yarn and secure in ch 2 space of corner 1 of round 7. Change color!
