LoZ Haul and Works in Progress(WIPS)

I recently recorded a haul that just happens to be Zelda themed from the last couple of months. I wouldn't actually call it a 'haul' as much as random stuff i happen to acquire which happens to have the same theme. Did i do that on purpose? Not really, although the Legend of Zelda series being my fave, you shouldn't be surprised. Check it out here.

My biggest win was the musical chests Nintendo forked over via the Streetpass group. For those that payed attention(and/or were lucky enough to get one) i unfortunately missed out on getting Ganondorf figurine bonus you could preorder for here in the USA...i just didn't do it in time. Huge loss, am i right? So this made me feel better and somewhat feel like Nintendo made it up to me(not that they owed me anything to begin with). You win some, you loose some i guess...and sometimes you break even. 

As for my works in progress, i'm planning to do some tunisian crochet tutorials...specially using afghan stitch(aka simple stitch). It's the one i use the most(do i know any other? actually, i don't think so...>.>) and it translates into pixels so well. It'll be the basics and probably branch out into how to do charts and all that jazz. My example project is the mushroom. I chose to make it red, but any color would have done. Should have those up by next week i suppose. 

Something that's also in the works; using that frog mario chart i designed for my afghan(no progress in weeks unfortunately, just didn't feel like) and making a pillow. To kind of help me jump back into it i suppose, i haven't been doing t-crochet(tunisian crochet) in quite a while. 

Also, Magfest!! It's this weekend(thursday-sunday). I'm going alone(except for sat, the hubs may come with) and i don't even mind it. I'll meet up with a few friends there, but more than that i'm just excited for the experience. Should be tons of fun! :)

Loz: A Link Between Worlds ~ 3DS

Yes, that's what i have in my DS right now! It feels kind of wrong, since i pushed Animal Crossing to the side for this. I've yet to try the street-pass feature, all though i have a few shadows waiting. I also recently ordered the Prima guide  during cyber Monday off Amazon(30% off and free shipping) since it wasn't included in the player guide's box set. What i miss is the screen-shot feature. In Animal Crossing you're able to take a screenshot of your top screen when L&R are pressed at the same time. Not that i would use that often here, but sometimes it's the little things.... :)

SMB3 Map and Loch Ness Chart

Just finished this chart! Recognize the game this is from? Except for the river monster(or uh, Loch Ness…). I’m not sure if it’ll end up being a pillow or a dust cover for my old-school PS2.

Here I am... :)

Was gone for a while there, am i right? All though not completely! I've been pretty good at keeping up with my Cast-Off videos(where i show my yarn-related finished objects and works in progress) i think, taking life into account. You can find these(and all others) on my YouTube channel here:

My amigurumi shop is still in motion( and have more recently opened another. Yes, another shop! For what?! you ask...well i fell in love with dying yarn, so it was inevitable. I have a small variety of fibers at this time, but more are surely to follow. Maybe even some hand spun(as i've recently learned how to use a drop spindle) and perhaps even some dyed roving. Check out the new shop at I'm also in love with the idea of colorways inspired by video game characters ;).

I've been brainstorming a way to incorporate all these(blog,video and shops) into one. I'm not quite there yet but i've been thinking along the lines of publishing a pattern, showing how to create the item and others being able to purchase it at my shop(s). As much as i love creating and making things for my own enjoyment, it would be much more rewarding to actually live off what i love to do....wouldn't it?
