Oh my, this is a sad little bunny.  ;_;

You really do have to use a much smaller hook that normal for amigurumis. If you're splitting the yarn and/or having trouble making stitches, you need to go up a hook size. If there's gaps between stitches (where stuffing would show through), you need a smaller sized hook.

And yes, open those blue bunny eyes. Cool

Ha! These are great, especially Jayne wearing his hat. Good job.  Cool

And let's not forget Zoe [aka Ms Amazon]. Anyone up for doing Kaylee in her ruffly dress?

You have...erm....a crochet [note]book? My stuff is in slithery piles, I think you're on to something.

Ah yes! You've certainly got patience to craft even this many kawaii little yeti guys. I can't even pick a favorite, they've all got their own personalities.

Yellow Submarine was what I thought too, although I've never seen the movie. Also loved Hunt for Red October.
Anyways, very nice, bright, happy submarine. Good job!!!

The innocent shall suffer.

Mooninites! Love these guys. My son got me into ATHF and they were some of my favorite characters. I'm always thinking I'll do a project with them in it, but unlike you, have never gotten around to it. Nice job!

I would say it took quite a lot of patience to learn to knit (and a few /throw the needles "i'm never doing this again") put i persevered and it was quite quick to learn, you just need to get past the initial frustration.  Definitely glad i did as i find knitting enjoyable now Smiley Even if it's a lot slower to make something than with crochet.  Also there's "continental" knitting that is recommended for crocheters wanting to learn, but i find it painful on my hands, so i learn the "old fashioned" way.
I laughed because I've thrown down my share of needles & yarns. I learned to crochet first and found that [for me at least] it was easier to stay with the same hand to tension yarn while learning to knit. I think that's what you mean by continental knitting since most people are right handed and tension yarn with their left hand for crochet. In any case, my suggestion is to try different methods, even after you've learned to knit. You never know what you might come across. When I found the best way for myself to knit it was like coming home. ~_~

As for zomgbiecakeses, that's a mighty ambitious first project. Congrats! He's wonderful and has personality that any child will treasure.
