My crochet odyssey began in 2008, where my lust for an amigurumi Little Big Planet Sackboy led to my clumsy attempt at learning to crochet. Initial trials were frustrating and unsuccessful but eventually, with help from youtube videos and much trial and error, I figured it out. Unhappy with the pattern I found for the Sackboy, that were either pay for access or didn’t quite look enough like the character. I’ve always been a do-it-myself kind of person and enjoyed crocheting best on the fly vice following a pattern, so I set out to come up with my own patterns and eventually offered them available for free on my website. Since then I have taught workshops at anime conventions and built a library of tutorial videos and patterns for my visitors. Because my own personal interests lay within the spectrum of nerdy things like anime and videogames, most of my patterns have been and will continue to be gaming or nerdery related.
