Squirtle Crochet

I know I mentioned that I made a crochet Squirtle in a previous post.  I made him for a friend and I really like it so I thought I would write a little bit more about it.
Just a head 

I used a pattern from Wolfdreamer, their site is filled with patterns for crochet Pokemon which I was really impressed with.  I ended up already having most of the colors needed for the crochet in my stash which I was super happy about, since there isn't a lot of yarn required for each part of the Squirtle.

The pattern was pretty easy to follow, I only had troubles figuring out how to do the fingers and toes. In the end I'm pretty sure I did it correctly.

I really liked working on this guy and I love how cute he is!!

Summer Time

The weather has finally gotten nice after what felt like a infinite winter.  Now that I'm done my year at university I am planning to write more blogs, as you can tell I tried to do Knitting and Crochet Blog week but I did not complete it, it was the same week as a long weekend so I went on a trip were I didn't have internet and I didn't have the foresight to prewrite my posts.

I don't have much else to write so here some pictures of photos of flowers that I've taken.

I've started writing a knitting pattern for a hat and I'm hoping to share it with you soon. I've never tried writing a pattern before so it might not go every well.  I'll keep you posted on how that is going.

That's pretty much all for now,
