Ok, yes, it has been about 10 months since my last post. But hey, I started veterinary school. I have been knitting almost just as much as before, but haven't really been taking the time to actually post about it. Or take pictures. Could be partially due to the fact our camera broke. Just maybe :)
So I have a myriad of things I need to put up on here, but the next couple weeks are finals, so it will probably be after that that I will finally get some things posted up here.
Should be posting soon! Keep your fingers crossed :)

I am SO excited about finishing this, he is SOOO cute!!!!! And really looks like the character too. He was one of the most involved amigurumi I've made, with a ton of sewing pieces on, which is not my favorite part by any means, but anyway, I love him, and he's adorable, so I hope you enjoy!
So, first off, I was trying to finish my amigurumi day 3 in time, but it isn't going to happen... so instead I thought I would post some pictures of a sewing project I finished a few days ago.
After sewing this, I have decided to never sew with knits again though. At least not until I get a serger or I am a much better sewer, because this was extremely frustrating. But, a learning experience so I guess that was good.
Anyway, here are my pictures. Enjoy!
My eyes were closed but this is a good picture of the shirt:
No, I do not have a purple hamburger tattoo on my arm, it is a water spot on the lens of the camera.
