The Inside Out Beanie

In the mornings, I wake up with so many ideas and decide to work on them as soon as I get back home from work, but by evening half of the ideas I either forget or they don't seem interesting anymore and the other half seem too complicated and time consuming for a weekday. Story of my life. To get over this feeling, I have started making note of all the ideas. I prioritize them into a list and add some details about each idea and save them on my Google Keep App. This makes it easy for me to get back to them in the evening and continue the thought process.

Introducing Sheepika

I have made many Amigurumi animals for my niece and she has loved every one of them. I had knitted 2 bunnies, an elephant and crocheted a monkey for her.

Hi there, Welcome to AsmiHandmade
This is my first post after I moved from hookingtheyarn to AsmihHandmade. I have been planning to do this since I started my Etsy store, but hadn't found time.  Frankly, maintaining an Etsy store is more work than I thought. But I'm glad I finally got around to do it.
Today I'm here to post my pattern for Pokie the hedgehog. If you don't know how to crochet, but would still like to have a Pokie for yourself, do visit my Etsy store and you can buy one there, or have one made in your favourite colour just for yourself :)
