Working on Link Pattern

I recently made a new Deku Link pattern and I am working on a new Link pattern to go with it. I was planning on finishing the Link tonight BUT….. I ran out of green yarn. >.<  So he’s just going to have to wait until I have a chance to pick up some more.

 

My long term goal is to write a pattern for Goron Link and Zora Link as well. That way I can have the whole Majora’s mask set. 🙂 But I like to space them between other projects so I don’t go crazy. 😛

Anyways, here is a pic of the completed Deku Link and the mostly finished Link.

He still needs ears, more hair with some hair styling and trimming, another arm, all his loose ends attached and sewn in, as well as various optional details.

Update! Pokeball, Pidgeotto, Arbok

I haven’t posted anything the past few days because I have been so busy. When I did get any free time I didn’t feel like going on the computer so there were no blog posts.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here and I’ve been getting a lot of cleaning done around the house. I’ve also crocheted a Pokeball, a Pidgeotto and an Arbok.

Now I’ve started work on a birthday present for my older sister. Her birthday is at the end of May and she has requested an amigurumi of Erza Scarlett, her favourite character from the show Fairy Tail.

Photoshoot! Zelda Scarf

So I just got my husband to take some pictures of me with the Zelda scarf so that I can get it up and listed on Etsy. I finished the Baby Belle doll last night, so I need to take pictures of that and send that with my notes to Kairyk. Next on the list? I SHOULD start on the Jigglypuff doll….but I REALLY want to make a Ariel doll right now. We’ll see what I do. 🙂
