Updated: 6/14/17

I’ve had several of my followers express a bit of confusion with Rows 9 and 10 of the Happy Sunflower’s head piece. I went ahead and created a new YouTube video on my Ink & Stitches channel working through those two rows together to clarify the directions and make things easier. Hope this helps!

Four New Videos Now Live on my Ink & Stitches YouTube Channel!

I finished up editing and posting the last four videos I had filmed to my YouTube Channel. They are ready to help you learn new techniques and stitches that can be used when making your own amigurumi patterns, or if you are working through ones you found online that include these techniques: picot stitch, changing colors in the round (with jogging vs. jogless), crocheting in front loops only (FLO), and crocheting in back loops only (BLO).

This week I continued working on editing my book, Adeline and the Mystic Berries (see last week’s What I am Working On post for more on editing this story). I finished the in-line edits and have moved onto reorganizing and deleting chapters, and also writing new scenes as well. This part of the process will definitely be the most time consuming.
