Meet Woky! He was my top secret crochet project #1 of the fall. This isn’t the current top secret crochet project mentioned in Monday’s post though. You’ll have to wait on that one. Anyway, this is Woky. He is an ewok in case you were thinking he was a cute teddy bear with a hood (:-/) and his hood is removable. I made him for my friend Jem! A few months ago, my friend J suggested that we make crocheted ewoks together and I thought that sounded fun! J is a much faster crocheter than me so she finished her ewok in record time. Meanwhile slow Potassium took months to finally finish Woky (this does not bode well for my current top secret crochet project….). It was awesome in the end though because I finished Woky about a week before Jem was supposed to come into town for a visit. Somehow she figured out that she was getting an ewok though I think she was still happy that she was right. She promptly named him Woky! :) Before Jem came into town, we took Woky to the pumpkin patch for a photoshoot. So without further ado, may I present Woky!
I am super proud of Woky. I’d say he turned out pretty well! His pattern was pretty hard (I had to keep asking J for help… that’s partly why he took so long to finish…).
In other fun crafty news, my friend Jem and I are thinking of starting an Etsy shop for our photographs and possibly my crocheted creatures (though I am super slow so I’m not sure about that). Anyone have any comments about that? Do you have an Etsy shop? Is it awesome? Stressful? Let’s discuss (topics: Etsy/ewoks/anything else you’ve been dying to tell me)!

I love Woky! He’s adorable (and geeky, which is always a plus)! I’ve never crocheted before, but I’m so slow at knitting that it would probably take FOREVER for me to finish something like that.
I have an Etsy shop and I love it! It’s a lot of fun, though it can be a bit stressful at times, like when you get a ton of orders right before exams. Of course, one nice thing about Etsy is that you can pretty much treat it as seriously as you’d like. There are people on there who treat their Etsy shop like any other online business and people who just hope to sell a few of the crafts they’re already making to pay for more supplies. It’s definitely awesome in my opinion – give it a try!
Cute little guy. Must be a lot of work!
