Many things have happened in the last year for our family. BB has lost 2 teeth, I started a new job, and our family moved into a new home!

As the year comes to an end, we start looking forward to the new year with new beginnings. At the start of the new year, crocheters often start looking at temperature yarn projects. Google searches often come back with "temperature blankets". 

Sometimes, crocheting blankets can be such a daunting project. What if you lose interest and don't end up finishing it? 

Unless you're working off temperatures from years in the past, you're not going to have all your temperature data all at once. So in those cases, you might only be able to work on it one row or one piece a day.

So aside from some beautiful temperature blankets, here are also some other very creative temperature projects (that are NOT blankets)!

Halloween is just around the corner! Although it helps, cosplay is not restricted to just Halloween. You'll normally see cosplayers fully dressed as their favorite characters at special conventions and festivals.

Cosplay costumes are not just any off-the-rack costumes that you would normally find in a store. Many dedicated cosplayers set out to create their own costumes because they want more detail in them.

Cosplay has really exploded since the 1990s. I've seen many amazing cosplay costumes, but here's something different. They're not just crochet costumes. They're crocheted cosplay costumes! 

Let's check them out:

After making my egg tart amigurumi for Lunar New Year, I thought I would keep the momentum going with some more Hong Kong-inspired snacks.

So the next one that I have for you is one of Hong Kong's favorite street food: CURRY FISHBALL.

So fresh off the stove, I present to you a crochet pattern for a cute family of amigurumi curry fishballs!

Please note that this blog post is a tutorial for Jiji the Black Cat amigurumi crochet pattern. The FREE crochet pattern can be found here.

I absolutely love my little black cat, Jiji. Crocheting with faux fur yarn can be a bit intimidating, but it was so worth it!

I wrote a blog post with some tips on using faux fur yarn for amigurumi, here.

I end up making a total of 3 black cats with the faux fur yarn that I got and each one turned out slightly different. I guess that's the beauty of handmade.
