The Angels Take HodgePodge! The Angels Take HodgePodge: Weeping Angel Lovey

I’m SUPER EXCITED to share with you what has been keeping my crochet hooks occupied for the past couple of weeks!!! (And if you’ve been paying attention at all, you’ll notice a serious Doctor Who theme here, lol)

Introducing the Weeping Angel lovey!! This pattern is by Silverdragon Crafts & Critters and is GORGEOUS! If you’d rather have a doll, she also has a version for that! The Angels Take HodgePodge

Not into Doctor Who? <GASP> You can crochet this one in any colors and have a beautiful alternative angel for your little one.

Just Jiji

With Halloween fast approaching, I really wanted to turn my crochet attention to something fun, whimsical, and different than anything else I’ve done before.

For me, that meant diving into the world of the magical! But not just any sort of magic. It needed to be that special brand of tripping over yourself, bumbling through mistake after mistake brand of magic–and who better to represent that than Kiki.

For those who aren’t familiar with Kiki’s Delivery Service, you can get a small glimpse into her world down below!

Kiki is super cute but working ami figures isn’t something I love to do–trust me, I never finish the ami figures I start–so I decided instead to focus on her black cat, Jiji. He looked small enough for me to tackle–AND FINISH!!–and how can anyone resist an adorable kitty!

Isn’t he cute!! Just Jiji

What I ended up with was something that I think is almost as good as the real thing! Just Jiji
