My journey started 5 years ago when I saw some beautiful crocheted toys (amigurumi) on twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Amigurumi is a Japaneses word for stuffed crocheted dolls (ami=crochet gurumi=doll). I really liked what I saw and decided to start learning the ins and outs of crochet. I'm self taught. I watched many youtube videos illustrating crochet techniques and amigurumi basics and I became more experienced with time.
