In Love With These Blocking Mats

I was sent these Blocking Mats by WooLove to test out for free.

I am in love with these things, they are my new go-to mat for blocking everything. I won’t spoil the review with spoilers, but I love the grid lines!

Zoomigurumi 6 Review ~ Cuteness Overload!!

The Red Panda on the cover is adorable!

The good folks over at Meteoor Books sent me a free copy of their newest Zoomigurumi book, Zoomigurumi 6. I’ve reviewed a past copy and was very excited to see what new animals were getting the Zoomigurumi treatment.

There is a total of 15 animals in the book.

Just like the past version I received, the book is a collection of 15 patterns by a variety of designers (15 ones in this book, 12 in the previous). Though they are all by different people, you get the feel of a very cohesive vision throughout the book. I give lots of credit to the publishers for their great effort at this cohesion (I feel like Tim Gunn during Fashion Week).

Love the hairdo!

Each little critter is presented with step-by-step instructions with plenty of picture tutorials for difficult portions.

Picture tutorial shows how to add the hair to Alvin.

All the patterns use basic amigurumi stitches, so lots of single crochet. None of the patterns seem too difficult so that even a novice at amigurumi could make these. They are all well thought out and just plain cute!

Of course, the owl is one of my favorites.

I love that each little guy gets his own cartoon version of itself in the material section.

Oswald wants you to know that he is “2 stars” difficult.

There are so many cute critters I can’t pick just one favorite.

So adorable!

Fab Five For February

I love all the knit and crochet-topped boots out there right now. Here are my favorite top five.

1. Muk Luks Women’s Patti Cable Cuff Boot

This low profile fold over detail would be cute with skinny jeans.

2. Muk Luks Women’s Chris Cable Knit Winter Boot

Looking for a stylish upgrade to the last pair. This chunky heel is super cute.
3. Bearpaw Women’s Shania Ankle-High Suede Boot

Love the strap detail on this knit cable boot.

4. T.u.k.. Women’s Suede and Crochet Combat Boot

Tough and sweet mixed together in this combat boot style.

5. Muk Luks Women’s Malena Crochet Knit Button Down Boot

These get my vote because they actually look crocheted (though we all know they aren’t).

Which one is your favorite? Let us know below!
