I feel like a dope for not being able to find the Introductory for days. I guess it's been a real while since I last joined a forum, lest a community of artsy people... But anyway!

Hi everyone! I'm Tomato Yarn and I'm an artsy fartsy who has reconciled with a old flame named "crochet" a few years ago and am now in a relationship with yarn again. Yay~

During that course, I've been learning various stitches and shapes and have developed a penchant for stuffed dolls or amigurumi (あみぐるみ). But it was a typically lonely journey on the side with just a yarn and a hook without any crafter to talk to.

So I joined this community in hopes of making new friends and also gaining more knowledge not only about crochet but all things craft!

Nice to meet everybody and I hope to enjoy this stay Smiley

By the way, I am also an avid sketcher and gamer. Anyone who enjoys pencilworks or gaming, can we start being friends? *gets kicked* Ahahaha XD

WELCOME!!!

We love having anyone who loves to play with yarn...Grin.  We have so many craftalongs that are low committment (although, we LOVE lots of pictures!)...and something to meet everyone's interest...if not, we make a new group!

You can join anytime, start your own group, pop in on other groups, etc.  You might want to check out the NERDS SUMMER GAMES in the craftalongs under Miscellaneous...all sorts of geekdoms and fandoms there!

Let me help keep you from getting lost...here is the link...ha ha Wink...

Thank you for the warm welcome guys! I'll try to be as active as I can Cheesy

Aside from the Nerd Summber Group and the Newbie CAL, are there any other crochet/yarn groups that I should become familiar with? Smiley

I like the washcloths craftalong and also there are always granny squares and motifs craftalongs on the crochet board...they are low-key and you can come and go as your schedule allows...some of the members are crazy active...I love seeing all of the mini squares and flowers...if you like amigurumi, there are a lot of people who swap and also do craftalongs.  Welcome again..
