The third annual PlanetJune Reindeer Games crochet-along has just wrapped up, and it was a huge success!

Over the 2 month CAL, we had 60 projects submitted through the PJ Ravelry group and an additional 50 projects from the PJ Discord group, making a total of 110 completed projects: Aren’t they great? All the projects, together with the CAL statistics, are on display ..read more

My biggest accomplishment was to write and publish my comprehensive amigurumi reference book, The Essenti ..read more
