Hello. I'm Hanna. *waves* I adore your site and honestly speaking, not trying to butter you up or anything, but the sleeping sheep are my favorite. ♥ They're adorable. And I would like to see more patterns and new stuff. I love everything you do, yeah, but I want to see more of the prettiness, you know? :D I love this place. ♥

Um, does putting you on Google Reader list count as following?


Barbara said...

Hi I'm Barbara and I also have a blog I just found your blog and also started following you on Facebook. I haven't made one of your little sleeping sheep yet but I'm sure I probably will, they are so cute. I like Amigurumi and I have to say that teddy bears are my favorite right now. I don't knit, I only crochet and I'm looking forward to seeing what you design and do.

hiya! i'm sue (not to be confused with the other sue who commented earlier! haha...)

i'm a crocheter too, but i'm afraid i'm not as creative as you... i do try! LOL...

my favourite amigurumi are characters human dolls... angels, girls etc. but i also love any cute animal amis.

for the future, i hope you'll feature more patterns (simple ones) in your free patterns section. i've actually linked you in my blog under my 'free patterns' list, so that my friends (most of them new crocheters) know where to go to get simple patterns to work on as practice.

lastly, love your blog and your creations! keep them coming! ;)

Hello, Haruki!

So good to see a fellow Canuck doing some beautiful (and achingly cute!) crafty-things! Just found your blog through a link on Ravelry...As a brand-new knitter, I have recently discovered the cuteness that is Amigurumi...and I long to learn how to crochet now, so that I can make them too *sigh*...'til then, I just admire the work of others...your Sleeping Sheep are ADORABLE! I can't be in the running for a free one, but I'll tell you that my favourite Amigurumi are Octopi...I saw a baby octopus pattern in a book that was soooo cute, it almost made me cry! Thanks for sharing your craft out here in the Blogosphere, your bookmarked in my favourites now! Cheers and Happy Hooking...Tamara in Ontario ^-^ said...

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.
