I just wanted to throw up a goofy little post after my last Eeyore one.
2 years ago I discovered amigarumi through this hilariously adorable book:
I bought it, but then found that it assumes you already know basics about amigarumi, so I bought another book that teaches you the basics and has a bunch of patterns for animals (like owls).
Then I used my Crochet for Dummies book for basic crochet stuff like adding and dropping stitches and all that jazz that I had never really used, because before this all I had made were scarves.
Anyways - I learned SO much about crocheting from doing these and I ended up making a bunch of Christmas presents because we already had a ton of yarn around the house, so I didn't have to buy much. It also made things more personalized.
So without further ado, here are some of the amigarumi I made - I took the basic body building principles from Creepy Cute Crochet to make the people and the animals I took pretty much right out of the animal book.
We are the knights that say "Ni!"
Okay, not really - this one was straight out of the book, but I love Monty Python, so I had to throw that quote out there.
If I made another penguin, I think I would make it black, not blue like this.
Cinderelly, Cinderelly, night and day it's Cinderelly...
I flippin' love his ears. Cutest mouse ever.
Dun da dun dun, Dun da dun!
My brother loves the office and I had so much fun creating Dwight - complete with paper clip glasses.
Luke, I am your father!
My brother-in-law is a HUGE Star Wars collector. Of course I had to do the removable helmet with the pasty, scarred head underneath :)
There's a piggy that I made for AchingHope, but I don't know where she has it, so I couldn't post it. Maybe I'll put it up later.
