Welcome to my little corner of the Interwebs!  The Whimsy Turtle is where I keep track of the different things I have created and how.  Right now, my projects are mostly yarnies, but other ventures will be making appearances. There will also be the occasional ramble on whatever strikes my fancy. (A couple of adorable faces may take over every now and then.)

You can also follow me on Tumblr at thewhimsyturtle.tumblr.com and on Instagram at www.instagram.com/thewhimsyturtle for updates to this blog and lots more adorable tortle photos.

If you have any questions or requests, please ask away!

Note: I currently have quite a backlog of requests, so no project requests at the moment please! If you already requested something, don’t worry, it’s on my to-do list.
I will update when I am taking requests again.


To my fellow “hookers”*: Thanks to a remarkably thriving industry of unscrupulous people selling others’ free patterns, I am for the most part not posting my original patterns on this public site.


Hugs and lots of love to Samwise, without whose encouragement and help this blog would never have gotten off the ground.


* Unlike knitting (which is done with needles), crocheting is done with a hook—basically, a needle with a hook instead of a point at the end.
