      Hi Ewa,
      Thanks for your interest. This blog page doesn’t belong to me though, so it doesn’t feel right to follow through on the award thing. The blog is set up by Cec, and we’re just a group of her friends who work in things to show off to each other. Your blog is very nice with lots of interesting stuff though!

      Thank you :-). The pig is actually made up of parts from different patterns. Turned out quite well.

    Dear Michelle,

    I must comment and say that I love your crocheted puppets. I’ve spent a lot of time searching the web for puppet patterns, as my sister has requested that I make some for her daughter. My little 9 month old niece sadly has a muscular disease that prevents her from playing with toys like other babies, but she absolutely loves when we play with puppets for her.

    I understand that these puppets were inspired by other patterns and improvised, but I thought that I should at least ask to see if you would be willing to share the design. I really have not seen anything as nice anywhere else on the Internet. Of course, I’m not looking to make them for any kind of profit, but for my niece. 🙂

    Either way, beautiful work! Best wishes,

    Hi Anna,

    Thanks for your note about the crochet hand puppets. They’re actually based on a Japanese pattern, and can be found here:

    Japanese patterns tend to be diagram based, so if you understand the diagrams, you might be able to still follow. I think the internet also has some sites that provide explanations of what the symbols for Japanese patterns translate to in terms of crochet stitches, but you’ll have to search for that. Good luck with the pattern!
