Midweek Squee – 2012 in review

So WordPress emailed me a summary of how Amiguruthi (the blog not me the person) did in 2012. Considering I’ve only been here for six months I thought it was kind of interesting to read.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 11,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 18 years to get that many views.

So yeah – hope you all had a good 2012, thanks for the support you’ve given me – It’s great to get the feedback, make friends, and I’ve even started being sent the odd photo of creations from my patterns which is awesome. You’re really helping my confidence (and rate of crochet!) by reading the blog, commenting on the odd post and even just lurking and clicking around the patterns (although if you’re doing that comment and say hi, I don’t bite! Except that one time, but he was totally fine in a week or so…).

Have a great 2013! My New Years Resolution is to learn to knit. Although the blog will still be crochet amigurumi in the main, there may also be the odd midweek squee about my adventures with needles.

Hi all

Sorry for the quick and delayed post (as a new blog I can get away with it though, since I have no regular readers!).

This isn’t an amigurumi, because the amigurumi I wanted to post isn’t finished, so instead here is a plushy Shakespeare I made as a leaving thank you gift to the English department I’ve been working in for the last year:

More pictures after the jump, or if you want to go straight to my pattern following this link to my Cut Out and Keep page (it’s 100% designed, drafted and made by me, but I wrote up the How To there and uploaded the pattern pieces, so it’s just easier to send you over there to get them!). Alternatively, email me and I’ll send you the document!
