Some of you might know me as ShearViscosity from Ravelry or deviant art. More likely you’ve just stumbled upon this blog.
I’ve been thinking about doing a blog for a while as a way to post all my patterns together in one place. I also plan on using it to communicate with people who are interested in crocheting, whether they’re just starting out, or a seasoned vet. Perhaps someday I’ll add tips and more.
I first started crocheting one summer during high school. My godmother’s mom, who’s like a second grandma to me got me started. At the time all I did were snowflakes, doilies, and the same afghan pattern. Once I hit college I didn’t have room for all my stuff and stopped.
This year my friends and I did a secret santa exchange. One of them is a really talented artist and was going to draw a picture for part of her present. I wanted to do something as crafty, but couldn’t figure out what since I fail at everything artsy. Then I remembered I could crochet, and several hours later I was hooked on amigurumi.
Her present, (wolfdreamer’s eevee pattern with a fail face) was such a success, that I’ve had several requests from friends and people for stuff. So as a way to destress from school I’ve been working on things for them, and other little ideas that pop into my head.
