My name is Rachel and I am a crocheter!
I have been crocheting on and off for about 10 years now, but it has really been the last year and a half that I have been doing it (almost) nonstop.
I am currently a student working towards my BA in Literature and Writing Studies – emphasis in lit. When I am not reading (on the rare event), I typically spend my time working on a new crocheted creation… or reading something unrelated to school.
In January of 2012, I was introduced to the magic of amigurumis and have not looked back since. Though I still make the occasional scarf or hat (and the blanket that I have been working on for, seriously, almost 3 years), I spend most of my time making videogame inspired amis! By the way, I am also a gamer – hence, the videogame plushies. 😉
This past January, I finally opened up an Etsy shop! My husband had been suggesting it for quite a while but I never felt that my items were good enough. However, I finally gave in and it has been great! Though I may not have sold TONS of items, the experience is still quite rewarding. Just knowing that people are taking the time to look at my creations and “favorite” them puts a smile on my face. I plan on writing out some of my patterns and listing those soon as well.
With this blog, I hope to share with you my creative process, some patterns, and the occasional musing/rant.
Hope to see you around!
