Bloggity Blog Blog Blog


Blog posts are pretty rare around here these days, but with Google Reader shutting down at the end of June I thought I better do some housekeeping!

You can follow this blog with Bloglovin or I have heard Feedly is a good Reader too.

If you read blogs on your iPad I totally recommend the Flipboard app, it makes whatever you follow (including Social Media like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) into a personalised magazine and I love it!

If you are on Instagram I post my craft and baking as @gretbert, including lots of things I don't get around to writing blog posts about...

And I usually link to blog posts (and Instagram pics) through Twitter too, so you can follow that way (if you can put up with me retweeting silly things about Mad Men and Gilmore Girls).

Batman


As soon as I found this pattern I knew I had to make one - so cute and Batman comes a close second to Star Wars at the moment with Mr 3. I think I saw him first on Instagram and then a google search for 'Batman Amigurumi' found the original blog post.


The pattern is available here on Etsy and is really easy - after a few false starts experimenting with yarn and hooks I used DK yarn and a 3mm hook. I tried to sew on the felt eyes but they puckered so I have just glued them on, we will see how long they last!
