Amigurumi You Say?

Well, hello there!! You are such a cutie pie! Back in September last year, I finished crocheting and photographed this little fella. That's how long it's been since I've posted a "creation" on this blog! I don't think I'm repeating a post but it feels so good to be able to post things on my blog(s) again.

This is a Japanese form of crochet called amigurumi. I have no idea how to pronounce it. The book I am using for my patterns are all little animals or fruit and veggies. They are crocheted in the round without stopping and turning around to crochet in the other direction. You have to mark your rounds. Also their heads are bigger in proportion to the rest of their bodies which makes them the cutest little crocheted "pets" to play with or simply just adore.

This is seriously cute crochet folks!! And only will take a couple of hours to create a little friend for a child or an adult.

My next "ami" is in the works. It's an elephant. Yes, even though I'm an Auburn fan and not an Alabama fan, it's an elephant! ha! But Paige says her favorite zoo animal is the elephant and she wanted an elephant next.

With two more grandbabies coming, the possibilities are just endless in what I can create! The little ones are so easy to please:)

Here is a "profile" view. She is now in the toy bucket with all the other stuffed animals and well loved :)
