click for more images!
I've been busy! I've opened my etsy shop , written my first large-scale pattern, which is for sale in my shop and really pushed my work to be more of what I like. I'm really glad I started making amigurumi, and don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

Well enough from me for now, I just pulled a 10 hour Yenayarn work day, and I'm taking the rest of the day off.

See ya soon!

Boar and paras!

click him to see more photos!

This guy was a ton of fun, since I love pigs and boars. He's a sweetie, but he's missing a tusk! He doesn't mind, though. We're all different.

His yarn was specifically picked out by his owner,it's 100% wool, hand spun from Uruguay. I really love this yarn, it's beautiful, soft and easy to work with.

And paras is complete! He's gotten a lot of attention, and I'm really happy to have made him. He's got wired legs, and can hold himself up! Plus a little pokeball to accompany him to his new home.


And one of my favorite african animals, a rhino! Hippos and Elephants are next!
He's for sale, just $10!

New Layout!

After much tweaking and re-editing, I'm happy with the new look here at YenaYarn!

Hope ya'll like it too!


I did a recent re-shoot of a few old dolls I made sometime last year. I still need more/better lighting, I'll pick up another light soon enough.

A recent squid commission in some super soft wool!

Meganium! Made a few months ago, I wanted better pictures before I sell him. C:

dxfgdfSomething I finished yesterday, an epic jellyfish for sale at the market this weekend.

This is the old Chicago doll I made last year. Photos are hard to take of her since she's got no hard edges, she's all fluffy and no matter what, she always looks blurred. Hm....

New layout!

New layout, much nicer now.

I've been hard at work, reorganizing and setting a crochet/work calender. I've made a squid, and jellyfish, started a boar and a wasp as well. I also found an AMAZING local yarn shop with all natural fibers, beautiful soft wool, and I might have overspent my yarn budget, but it was amazing and I loveeee wooollll and alpaca and delicious kid goat hair blends.

Well, I'll be around soon!
