It's been SOOOOO long!

2014-04-13T08:19:06.610-04:00

The bad thing with Facebook is that it's too easy to communicate without communicating... one fast picture and a little sentence and you're done!I was all against Facebook for the longest time, and then a friend convinced me that since I'm so far away from home (Montevideo, Uruguay), it'd be easier to share pictures of the girls, see what everybody was up to and that kind of thing, and I joined. At the beginning I was all into it, but now I barely go into my personal account :( Let's see how long my "I hate cell phones and I don't see the need for one" will last...How do you guys relate to all this pretend communication? Is it just me? When did the face to face/long telephone conversations with a friend turn into a text?Oh, technology, how I lovehate you!Anyway, changing the subject completely! I decided to stop selling individual patterns and I grouped all of them into 3 e-books, a pdf file each that you can download as soon as your pmt goes through. Each of them has 25 crochet pattern sets for only $20 (really good, no?) with a variety of projects that you can use all year long! :)Here they are:                                          SERIOUSLY CUTE CROCHET I                                          Buy it here!                                          SERIOUSLY CUTE CROCHET 2                                          Take it home to your computer! ;)                                          SERIOUSLY CUTE CROCHET 3                                          Buy me!I hope you guys like the idea :)I'm already working on Seriously Cute Crochet 4, just because I'm addicted and can't be without a hook in my hand... I'll post some previews soon, and also stop complaining about how horrible the communication thing is and communicate more :)Have a wonderful, crafty weekend!Hugs,ap[...]



Unicorn Crochet Along!

2013-10-28T13:59:47.022-04:00

crochet me & give me a hug!We're starting our 3rd CAL today, and it should be a lot more fun than the other ones because now I'm really getting into it plus the Facebook page is growing like crazy (thank you SO SO MUCH), so there's going to be a lot more of us crocheting together :)**Hoy empezamos nuestro 3er CAL (crochet along - viene a ser tejer juntas, no?), y me parece que va a ser mucho mas divertido que los otros porque estoy re entusiasmada (se dan cuenta que casi que no tengo vida no? :p) y ademas la pagina de Facebook esta creciendo que es una locura (MUCHAS GRACIAS), asi que vamos a ser un monton mas tejiendo junt@s :) To participate you're going to need one of these two unicorn patterns: the Huggable Unicorn in my Etsy shop, or the little one from Amigurumi Toy Box :) & you need to start crocheting! :)Post pictures of your work in progress in the Facebook page if you'd like, or you can send them to me and I'll post them for you :) **Para participar vas a necesitar uno de estos dos patrones de unicornio: Huggable Unicorn de mi tiendita de Etsy (si queres que te lo traduzca lo podes comprar en ingles y te lo mando a tu mail al dia siguiente) o el unicornio chiquito de Amigurumi Toy Box, que esta tb en español.I'll be posting pictures of how I'm doing in Facebook, and will show you guys how I sew the different parts and do the hair.**Yo tb voy a subir fotos, asi les muestro como coso las diferentes partes, y como hago el pelo y tal.& then, when your unicorn is done, post your final pic (or send it to me), and at the end I'll post them all here and we'll vote for our favorite. I'm still thinking about the prize(s). The winner will definitely get some free patterns from the shop, but I'm also trying to see if I can get something else -don't get too excited, though, it's not that amazing! ;)**Y listo, cuando terminas el tuyo subis la ultima foto (o me la mandas), y cuando tenga todas las subo aca y votamos por el que mas no guste. Al ganador/a seguro que le tocan algunos patrones gratis de mi tiendita, pero tb estoy viendo si consigo alguito mas -no se entusiasmen demasiado que tampoco es tan maravilloso ;)So... try to start this week, and let's do it until November 27 (all pics should be in by then).**Asi que traten de empezar esta semana, y seguimos hasta el 27 de noviembre (las fotos tienen que estar en Facebook o en mi mail el 27).Happy crocheting Unicorn-lover friends!Hugs![...]



New xmas tree pattern / Patron nuevo para el arbolito :)

2013-09-17T17:45:16.643-04:00

I finally finished the xmas ornaments pattern -a little early, but I figured it's better to start early and be done by the time all the holiday season starts!
**Termine el patron para los adornitos del arbol -un poquito temprano, pero es mejor empezar temprano y estar pronto para cuando empieza la locura de las fiestas!

Xmas Tree Ornaments amigurumi crochet pattern :)



When you buy this one you'll also be able to download the following files:

It's so fluffy I'm gonna die! ;)

2013-07-14T12:15:08.938-04:00


I officially started liking cartoons again :)
We watched Despicable Me 2 last week and Martina demanded a unicorn, so here it is!
I want a couple of real minions to keep me company and follow me everywhere, how fun would that be?! Also Agnes, she's adorable <3 p="">
**Fuimos a ver Despicable Me 2 y me amigue con los dibujitos de vuelta :)
Marti me pidio un unicornio y aca esta! Yo lo que quiero es un par de minions que se vengan a vivir a casa y me persigan todo el tiempo... y tb Agnes, esa nena es adorada :)

Here's Marti with her unicorn/Aca esta Marti con su unicornio:


If you want to make one, you can get the pattern right here!
Happy Sunday friends!

$1 Sale of retiring oldie patterns :)

2013-06-26T13:31:47.887-04:00

I've decided to clean my Etsy shop a little bit, and by July 4th I'll be taking 13 really old patterns from the shop. They are all on sale right now for only $1 :)
There are some that I really love, like the Colorful Animal one, which was the second pattern I ever posted in Etsy back in 2008:

 
& the little monsters under my bed Martita y Larana :)
 


 
As much as I like them, I feel like they deserve a vacation! So this is the last chance to take them home, and on July 4th they'll go to sleep... unless you get them and crochet lots of them right here! :)
I hope you're doing great!... I'm not liking the heat, but at least today there's a breeze coming in, so I can't complain too much :)
 



New Pattern & chau to an old one...

2013-06-21T14:40:32.499-04:00

Finally a new pattern! -I've been working on a new book, so I've been crocheting a lot, but this is the first one in a long time that's going in my Etsy shop :)
** Por fin un patron nuevo! -He estado trabajando en un libro nuevo, asi que estuve teje que te teje todo el tiempo, pero este es el primero en un ratazo que subo a mi tiendita de Etsy :)

Huggable Amigurumi Teddy :) The biggest teddy I've crocheted: 15 inches/38 cm tall! She's taller than a big cereal box!
**Este es el osito mas grade que teji, y mide 38 cm de alto!! Mas alta que una caja de cereal!


 
Also, I'm "retiring" this old, old pattern from the shop, so until next Friday it'll be only $1, and then on Friday, June 28th, it'll go to sleep forever in my computer :)
It's the last week to make it yours! :)
 

 
I hope you are all doing great! I'm happy that the girls are done with school and we don't have to get up super early anymore... yay! Plus I love to have them around, even when they fight and yell and throw stuff all over the place... the good times are a lot more that the "challenging" ones :)

**Espero que uds anden bien! Yo estoy contenta de que las nenas ya terminaron
la escuela y ya no nos tenemos que levanter mas tan temprano! Ademas me encanta que esten en la vuelta, aunque se peleen y griten y tiren juguetes y libros por todos lados... los momentos lindos siempre ganan :)

Big hug! Abrazo grande!

For the Girls! amigurumi crochet patterns DEAL :)Hola!Lots of things have been going on around here, and the Facebook page has ruined my blog writing ;)I hope you are all doing great!** Hola despues de tanto tiempo! Han pasado un monton de cosas, pero el Facebook definitivamente arruino el tema este del blog... alla es tan facil! Espero que uds esten tod@s bien.Among other things, Oli turned 10... TEN! I have a ten year old daughter!!! My sweet little baby has turned into an almost teenager that stumps her feet going up the stairs, gives me "you are so wrong" looks and paints her fingernails black... and I thought purple was bad!  And then, all of a sudden, she turns into my sweet little Oli again and wants to cuddle, and oh my, who knew this mothering thing was gonna be so up and down! ;) **Entre otras cosas Oli cumplio 10... DIEZ! Tengo una hija de diez a~os!!! Mi gordita adorada se transformo en una preadolescente que sube las escaleras con una rabia loca, me rebolea los ojos y mira como que soy una naba, y se pinta las u~as negras... y yo pense que violeta era feo!  Y despues de golpe vuelve a ser mi Oli linda y quiere mimos y me da unos abrazos adorados y... por dios, nadie me dijo que esto de ser madre iba a ser tan para arriba y para abajo! ;)Martina is doing great in first grade and loves her teacher with all her heart! Miss Bezerra who knows everything and is always right :) -She is really an amazing teacher, all teachers should be like her!**A Marti le esta yendo barbaro en primero y adora a su maestro con todo su corazon! Miss Bezerra sabe todo y siempre tiene razon :) - La verdad es que es un ejemplo de docente la chiquilina, todas las maestras tendrian que ser como ella!Santiago & Federico (my doggie sons) are as cute as usual, but a lot more demanding! I have spoiled them bad and now I have to live with it! -they deserve it, though, for being the only ones in the house that are convinced I'm god and treat me accordingly ;)**Santiago & Federico (mis hijos perritos) estan divinos como siempre pero son unos malcriados! Es todo culpa mia, asi que ahora me la tengo que bancar! - igual ellos se lo merecen, porque son adorados y me quieren hasta el cielo y se piensan que soy dios ;)And now for the crocheting news!A while ago I posted some new deals that are pretty nice, check them out here!  The picture is from the "For the Girls!" pattern Deal and it's only $12 for all the patterns :)Oh, and I'm working on another book! Yay! (I know, I'm a little of a dork). I'm loving it and I hope you will too :)  The only thing I don't like is that I can't show you pictures and I would really really like to share... :(** Bueno y ahora las noticias de crochet!Estoy trabajando en otro libro! Yay! (soy tan boba, que le vamo'hacer). Esta quedando todo re lindo y espero que les guste :) Lo que no me gusta es que no puedo mostrarles ninguna foto y la verdad que me encantaria compartir... y bue :(Well, that's it for now, but I'll be back soon! Facebook is fast, but this is a little nicer :)I hope you have the nicest Thursday, the weekend's almost here! :)Hug,Ana**Bueno, por ahora eso es todo, pero vuelvo pronto! Facebook es rapidito pero esto es mas lindo :)Espero que esten teniendo un jueves re lindo, estamos a nada del fin de semana! :)Beso gde,Ana Paula[...]

 Hugs, and happy crocheting!





I finish the Triceratops!

2012-08-02T12:48:23.974-04:00

...& that means I can start with my piggies for our Crochet Along :) I'm going to AC Moore today to buy chunky yarn to see how big they'll turn out! How are yours coming along? Send me some pics!

***Termine el dinosaurio! Asi que ahora puedo empezar con mis chanchitos para el Crochet Along :) Hoy voy a ir a comprar lana super gordita para ver lo grandes que quedan! Los de uds como van? Mandenme alguna foto!

I hope you like the new dinosaur :)


I hope you're having a great week- Summer's going fast, isn't it?

Triceratops head!

2012-07-25T21:08:45.811-04:00


I'm finishing his body & tail today :) I've been a little obsessed with crocheting dinosaurs lately!
*** Hoy termino el cuerpito y la cola :)  Ultimamente estoy un poco obsesionada con hacer dinosaurios!

Look at these new patterns in the shop:



As soon as I'm done with my triceratops I'll start on my piggies! I'm planning to make them with chunky yarn, I want to see how big they turn out :)
Have you started on yours?
**Apenas termine con el triceratops empiezo con mis chanchitos, los voy a tejer con lana de la mas gordita para ver lo grande que me quedan :)

If you haven't already, don't forget to join our Crochet Along!  
It's so much fun to see how everybody adds their little unique touches to the same toy :)
I hope you're having the nicest Wednesday, the weather here today is beautiful!




Oink, oink! ;)

These are the pigs we'll use for our second Crochet Along :)

First of all you have to get the pattern!
You can find the pattern right here in my Etsy shop, or buy it from Ravelry and download it right away!
(image)
You can also make the pigs from "Amigurumi Toy Box" or "Jacinta the Pig" if you have them :)

**important** If you want to do the crochet-along and right now you can't afford it, please PLEASE e-mail me to anapaulaolicrochet@gmail.com and I'll send you the pattern.

You have until August 24th to finish your pig(s) and either e-mail me a pic (or more) to anapaulaolicrochet@gmail.com, tag it/them with "Ana Paula Rimoli crochet patterns" in our Facebook page, or post them/in our Flickr group (and when I say "our" I mean yours and mine).

On the 24th I'll pick my 5 favorite ones and post them here and in Facebook, and you guys will get to vote for your favorite one :)
The winner will get $25 towards patterns or toys from my Etsy shop!

Keep in mind that you don't have to make them *exactly* like mine! You can change colors, make them extra decorations, crochet them with a bigger hook (the pattern calls for a J) and chunky yarn and make them really big, etc.
I CAN NOT WAIT to see how your piggies come out!
Please write if you have any questions
Hugs!

Facebook Page & I can't talk! / No puedo hablar!

2012-02-24T10:43:22.503-05:00

Thank you for the Facebook page love, I opened it and it's right here!  We'll see how it goes. It does seem like it'd be easier to say "hi" every day, and answer questions A LOT faster than in the blog, plus I was thinking that we can do some giveways and stuff...  Do you have any ideas? :)

**Gracias por lo de Facebook, necesitaba un empujoncito :) Abri la pagina y esta aca! Vamo'a ver como va. Me parece que va a ser mas facil que en el blog para contestar preguntas y saludar todos los dias :)
Ademas esta bueno para hacer sorteos y tal... Uds tienen alguna idea? :)

And now the "I can't talk" explanation! I was coughing ALL night, sneezing all morning, my throat is on fire, and you can barely hear me! I sound like a really really old smoker :0 & it hurts really bad!
So will you be oh-so-nice and "like" the Facebook page so I can start feeling better and yelling again? -I know it doesn't sound like it, but they're directly connected! ;)

** & ahora la explicacion de por que no puedo hablar! Estuve tosiento TODA la santa noche, estornudando toda la manhana, y parece que tengo fuego en la garganta, hablo bajito y feo, como un fumador muy muy viejito :o  Y ademas me duele!
Asi que ta que son re adorad@s y les "gusta" la pagina de Facebook para que me mejore y pueda gritar de vuelta? -ya se que no parece, pero estan directamente conectadas ;)

Have a really nice weekend, and thank you for being so nice ♥
Que tengan un finde muy lindo, gracias por ser tan adorad@s ♥



We're in 2012!! Ya estamos en el 2012!!

2012-02-23T14:01:09.719-05:00

 Although you've probaly noticed already ;)Aunque seguramente ya se dieron cuenta ;)I hope you started really really nicely, and that the world doesn't end this year ;) because I have lots of stuff to do, including spoiling my grandkids, and Oli & Martina are only 8 & 5, so I need at least 30 more years -They can only start dating when they're 31, so you know... ;)***Espero que hayan empezado muy muy lindo, y que el mundo no se termine este anho, porque tengo mucho mucho para hacer, incluido malensenhar mal a mis nietos, y Oli & Marti tienen solo 8 & 5, asi que necesito por lo menos 30 anhos mas -Solo pueden tener novio cuando tengan 31, asi que ... ;)I started in a very creative mood, very very creative, can't put my hook down creative, which hadn't happened that much since my dad left :(In these little amount of time I finished (finally) the new book (really cute), posted 7 new patterns in my Etsy shop, and now I'm crocheting some new things for a book I'm contributing to. It's been busy!***Yo empece muy creativa, pero salado, no puedo soltar la aguja!, y esta bueno, porque no me pasaba desde que se fue mi viejo querido :(En este ratito finalmente termine mismo el libro nuevo (ta re lindo), subi 7 patrones nuevos a Etsy, y ahora estoy tejiendo unas cositas nuevas para una contribucion a un libro. He estado re ocupada!& then there's Oli, Martina, Franco, and my little dog boys ;) Santiago & Federico, and they all like to eat every day and have their clothes/blankets clean... ;)  It'd be nice to clone myself -I would just sit around and crochet all day and play with the girls, while the other one would do all the cooking and home "maintaining" (wouldn't that be nice?!)*** & ademas estan Oli, Martina, Franco y mis varoncitos perros Santiago & Federico ;) y a todos les gusta comer todos los dias, y tener la ropa/mantitas limpias... ;) 'Taria bueno hacer un clon de mi misma. Yo me sentaria con los pies arriba de la mesa a tejer todo el dia, jugaria con las nenas, y la otra se dedicaria a cocinar hacer el "mantenimiento" de la casa... no estaria de fiesta?!& that's it, from now on I'm posting more often... do you think I should finally have a Facebook page? I've been thinking about it, but then I'm so boring, what do you write about?...  I once kind of "opened" one, but I never activated it... I don't know, let me know what you think pls :)*** & nada, "eso es todo amigos" ;) de ahora en adelante escribo mas seguido... che, les parece que tendria que abrir una pagina en Facebook? Hace rato que estoy pensando, pero soy tan embolante... sobre que escribo?... Una vez medio que abri una pero nunca la active... no se che, que les parece?Out of all the new patterns the dinosaur one is my favorite :)  buy now[...]



Getting ready for the Holidays! / Preparandome para las fiestas!

And then, again, my computer died! It seems like it happens every other month, and I'm beginning to think it's me :(
**  Y para variar, otra vez, se me rompio la computadora! Parece que me pasa cada dos meses, y estoy empezando a asumir que el problema soy yo :(

I'm working on a new pattern right now, it should be cute when it's done :)
Estoy haciendo un patron nuevo, me parece que va a quedar re lindo!

... of all the toys waiting for a new home ;)  I'm planning to post them in my Etsy shop little by little, while I finish off the manuscript for the new book :)*** Por fin saque fotos de todos los juguetes en busca de un hogar ;) Los voy a subir de a poquito en la tiendita de Etsy, mientras que termino el manuscrito del libro nuevo :)Here are some of the ones I posted today/Aca estan algunos de los que subi hoy! Little Kitten & BedSweet Amigurumi Panda :)Happy Hot CocoaLittle Baby Owl PlushieI hope you like them :)Espero que les gusten :)Fridays are tought, the girls are super tired from the week (so they argue, yell and drive us crazier than usual), and I'm exhausted!  All I can think about is my bed, which has been calling me since 8! If we're lucky, tomorrow they won't wake us up until 9!  -it's always nice to dream ;)*** Los viernes son bravos, las nenas estan re cansadas de la semana (o sea que se pasan peleando, gritando, y enloqueciendonos mas que de costumbre), y yo estoy muerta!  Solo puedo pensar en mi camita, que me esta llamando desde las 8!  Si tenemos suerte, manhana las nenas no nos despiertan hasta las 9! -sonhar no cuesta nada ;)Tomorrow we're taking Oli & Marti to see Snow White at WPU and they are really excited. Two years ago (Marti was 3) we saved all this money to take them to see Mary Poppins in Broadway (it's so expensive, isn't it?), and at certain point Martina told me: "You can turn it off now". Can you believe it?!!! :)I'm sure tomorrow will be different, now that she's such a big girl who goes to kindergarten :*(I'll let you know how it goes :)I hope you have a really nice weekend. Have fun!*** Manhana vamos a llevar a las nenas a ver Blanca Nieves en WPU y estan re contentas. Hace 2 anhos (Marti tenia 3) juntamos un monton de plata para llevarlas a ver Mary Poppins en Broadway, y despues de un rato Martina me dijo: "Ta, apagalo". Pueden creer?!!! :)Manhana seguro no pasa, ahora que esta tan grande y va a preescolar :*(Despues les cuento :)Espero que tengan un fin de semana MUY lindo y divertido. Besos![...]

Hola!!! I hope you guys had a great summer/are happy summer's almost there :)**Espero que hayan tenido un verano re lindo/que esten contentos de que el verano casi casi llega :)Our Summer was all right, but I was feeling kind of sick, and finally had to change medicine for my MS. The good thing is I don't have to do shots anymore, I now have pills!!!**Nuestro verano estuvo bien, pero yo me senti medio horrible todo el tiempo, y al final me cambiaron de remedio para la EM. Lo bueno es que ahora no me tengo que pinchar mas, ahora son pastillas!!!The girls are growing up fast and are back in school. Oli's in 3rd grade, and Martina started kinder, which I really wasn't ready for. These kids grow up way too fast, I can't believe Marti's already starting to read and write, & that Oli wants her nails painted purple!... I'm getting really old people! ;)**Las nenas estan creciendo rapidisimo y estan de vuelta en la escuela. Oli esta en 3ro y Martina empezo preescolar, y la verdad que yo no estaba pronta. Crecen demasiado rapido, me parece mentira que Marti ya este aprendiendo a leer y escribir, y que Oli quiera las unhas violetas!... Estoy mas vieja que nunca gente! ;)The last time I got really sick Franco finally gave me the "yes" for a dog, and that's how Santiago came into our lives, so this time I took advantage of it and convinced him to get him a friend. I couldn't, however, get him into getting another Boston :(, because he said this time he was going to pick it, so we adopted this really funny little mutt that keeps us and Santi entertained. He's 4 already and very loving :)**La ultima vez que me enferme mal Franquito me dio el "si" para un perrito, y traje a Santiago, asi que sabiendo como viene la mano,empece a hacer campanha para un amiguito para Santi. No pude convencerlo para traer otro Boston :( porque dijo que esta vez lo iba a elegir el, asi que adoptamos uno chiquito muy gracioso marca perro ;) que tiene 4 anhitos y la verdad que es muy adorado :)I'm working on a new book :) This one won't be toys, but toy-inspired. It's been a lot of fun to make. My deadline is on the 22nd, so after that I'll start making new patterns, toys and things for my abandoned Etsy shop.**Estoy trabajando en un libro nuevo :) Este no va a ser de juguetes, pero inspirado por los amigurumi. Esta re divertido la verdad. Tengo que mandar todo el 22, asi que despues de ahi empiezo a hacer patrones, juguetes y cositas nuevas para mi tiendita de Etsy, que tengo super abandonada.& that's it for now, I will not forget this blog for so long again! (I have such a normal, everyday-is-pretty-much-the-same life, that most times I don't know what to write about). I'm missing Montevideo big time, so if anyone has approx. $1,000 lying around and wants to get me a plane ticket I'll be more than happy ;)Big hug and talk to you soon!**& eso es todo por ahora, a ver si no me olvido del blog por tanto tiempo de vuelta! (tengo una vida tan normal, y tan "todos los dias lo mismo", que la mayoria de las veces no tengo nada para contar). Estoy extranhando Montevideo horriblemente, asi que si alguien tiene mas o menos 1000 dolares por ahi y me quiere comprar un pasaje de avion yo mas que feliz ;)Abrazo fuerte y hablamos prontito!Ana Paula[...]
