Dolls, pokemon, and expensive yarn.

So, I went to Hobby Lobby on Monday, and decided to load up on yarn. I kept on hearing that Cotton yarn was supposed to be excellent, soooo I tried it. I LOVE COTTON YARN! It's wonderfully soft, very easy to work with, and it glides very smoothly on your hook. It also doesn't fray, which is awesome because I always have trouble with getting caught on parts of the yarn that frayed when I'm using synthetic yarn. The only downside to it that I found, is that it's a lot more expensive than synthetic yarns, so I would only use it if you are planning on making something very high quality, like a clothing item.
     In other news, while I was at Hobby Lobby, I bought some yarn to make some awesome pokemon for my brother, (he wanted Psyduck and Wooper). You can find the patterns for a PLETHERA of pokemon, mario bros., or just random crochet patterns, at .
     But I'm not done yet! I ALSO bought the yarn to make an awesome doll, which I'll be posting pictures of as soon as we find our camera. You can find the pattern for this adorable little doll at
PHEW! I'm done typing now, for this post. I hope you enjoy the patterns, Happy Crocheting!

Hello! :)
I would love to direct you towards some wonderful blogs/websites/people, that I've learned a lot from, or that have a ton of free crochet patterns. (yay!) Here they are! :) Enjoy!

I'm hoping to get a few of my own amigurumi's up here soon, with pictures. And maybe someday I'll make a free pattern of my own to share. :) Happy crocheting! ~Julia

Hello, and welcome to Juligurumi!
My name is Julia, and I LOVE to crochet. The main things that I crochet are amigurumi's, but I do crochet other things too. I'm hoping to get some pics up soon of some of the ami's i've made. :) I started crocheting about a year ago, and I've loved it ever since. I learned how to crochet from Youtube, actually, and I have to admit it was very challenging at first! After I got the hang of it, though, I LOVED IT! :) I hope you enjoy this blog, and I am hoping to get some feedback as soon as I get some things posted. :) Happy crocheting! ~Julia
