I know most signs will read "Crochet Makes Me Happy" and that's true for me too but it's the act of crocheting that makes me so happy.
It's the feel of the yarn as it glides though my fingers and working the hook while watching the magic happen! Crocheting makes me so happy, how about you?I post free amigurumi patterns everyday on my facebook page Amigurumi Freely
I also have over 80 free patterns of my own and here's how to find them
And you too can make that Happy Elephant with my free pattern and video tutorial
Now for a couple updates:
First of all, I have a new routine as a first time homeschooling mom. I decided to teach my youngest son at home this year and I'm very happy to say so far so good! We have lots of help available to us and a teacher we can skype with whenever we need her. Any questions I have I just send off an email and she replies almost instantly and that's just awesome :)
It's been a while since I've been in school myself so the idea of teaching my own child was scary at first but with all the support we receive the fear is gone!
And with that said, my time is a little more limited than it was... of course. But I will do my best to better manage my time so I can still do all the things that I was doing before.
Today we had a bit of a break as we await more assignments to be sent to us so my
mother took my son to her place and together they are reviewing some of his assignments that he completed thus far. Thanks mom :)
So with this spare time I've been crocheting the day away and filming the body parts for the Yarny Monster.. the pattern is already released and I have a "sewing it together" video tutorial for it already and in that video I promised I would do the actual body parts as soon as I could get the time and that is happening right now.
Once the video is ready I will put an announcement on my facebook page
Ok the last update is about my facebook page.
Yesterday I removed the option to send me private messages through the page. Now that is nobody's fault and no one person caused me to remove that option.
Honestly, I have been struggling to keep up with messages as I get many everyday. I have other sites I manage so you can imagine how many messages or comments I can get in a day BUT I truly appreciate them all. I don't find messages a burden at all. It's just a struggle sometimes to find time to answer each one and I hate to have anyone feel ignored! But that's not way you can't message through facebook.
The reason why I removed the messaging option is I also had people sending me pattern or video questions to my facebook page which again, was totally fine except for I was having to go find the pattern or video to review whatever the person had a question about and that was taking up a lot of my time. It might seem like an easy thing to do but with over 80 patterns and as many video tutorials it can get a little time consuming.
It is always best to leave a question right on the pattern or the video itself with the row number you are referring to.
Many people think they can get a hold of me faster via facebook but I schedule posts for facebook days in advance. So even if you see me post an update there it could very well be a scheduled update and I'm nowhere near facebook at the time.
You can always leave a comment here on Amigurumi To Go at the bottom of every post and also on my videos on my youtube channel.
Here on my blog I moderate the comments to keep this site spam free so if you leave a comment you will not see it until I ok it. It might take me a few days, but I will respond.
So again, I love all your comments and pictures so please do keep them coming!

That's it for now,
I'm off to finish this tutorial. I hope you all have a wonderful yarn filled day.
Oh, I almost forgot! If you want to make that elephant pictured above the free pattern is right here. Crocheting really does make me so happy! How about you?
