It's the end of the world as we know it...

..and I feel fine! So here it is... Tomorrow it's my last day on the university.
Just six exams to pass, some paperwork to fill in and off we go! Graduates!

I have to say: it's been one heck of a ride!

Today I would like to share with you some of my yarn-connected memories.

Ready? Here we go!

It all started with this little mouse. I was really tired with hours and hours of constant studying and wanted to do something fun. As you can see I was a huge fan of crocheting into one loop only. Apparently I thought that was the correct way to do it. How far have I traveled from there!

Brought more ambitious Amigurumi projects, and also even less time for crocheting. Most of my toys were given away to new owners, so I low quality pics are all I have left.

I enjoyed making funny little mascots for my classmates. Here's The Ugliest Bunny made for my flatmate, Chicken-pencil case - a gift for our Christmas party.
Every one of those gift tells a different story :)

And here is my first big  Amigurumi! Polka Dot Bear! He was given away to charity to help raise money for kids, who were spending their Christmas in hospitals. 

This is when I started designing things!
Here's Dachshund Claw (pattern on Ravelry: here). My flatmate's dachsie was an inspiration for this one. It is by far the most successful of my designs.

Tapeworm Bookmark was designed as a gift for my friend. He still uses it! :) This is also my first "medical" design. 

I also made A LOT of different key charms. Ballerina mouse, Rocky mouse... you name it!

There was of course another Christmas party. This time I made Owl Coasters! 

And two lovely Geckos for my to lovely nieces!

During Winter Term I focused on my needs and made the Khajit Cowl. It is probably the most complicated thing I ever made:

I also took part in am amigurumi design competition. Did not win but it was a great fun! 

There was also my first baby blanket for the first baby that was born in our group! 

Hasiok&Friends blog was founded on January 8th!
I also designed my first sweater: Autumn Mess. Post about it is the most viewed one on my blog.

And last but not least. This is the year in which I learned how to knit socks! Yay me!

Soo.. that's it! As I said... the best ride! 

I'm not sure what future will bring, but I hope it will bring more yarn along with it :)

Now I need to get back to work if I really want to graduate!

Have a nice afternoon!

PS.: in case you ever wondered how my workplace looks like during preparation for finals:

That also happens to be a pretty accurate illustration of chaos :)

  1. You really have progressed a long way in four years! My story with crochet is similar, it seemed so difficult at first but then it 'clicked'. I'm now really enjoying knitting too and the Sockalong has been so much fun! X
