So, after a crash course in amigurumi thanks to MarjorieCrochets' baby snow dragon pattern (really taught me a lot about shaping!), I went on to make all of these.  I don't have individual pics of them, but I guess this will have to work better than nothing since I can't find my camera battery charger.  I made a couple of caterpillars, a dragon fly, a horse, and hats for my hubby, son, and I.  The hats probably don't count as amigurumi but I'm not sure since they were done in the same fashion (worked in a spiral).  This is so much more fun than the normal scarves and leg warmers I usually make!!


I hope you like!  I love comments!

I'm impressed! (And very honored!) Wow, if I've helped anyone develop their craft, or more of a passion for their craft, it's just mind boggling! I expect to see patterns that you've written someday soon! I know you can do it!

the horse is adorable! And the hats aren't tecnically ami as ami usiually implies a toy or stuffed animal. But they are great too! I love those style of hats.

All of those are so cute.  I really like the fuzzy yarn you used on the animals.

Thanks forthe kind words!  And enlightening me on what amigurumi really is!  The yarn I used is all Baby Clouds or Homespun (I'm sure these yarns have longer names, but I forgot and my son always rips the paper off the skein instantly!)

I have 12 (yes 12!!!) pregnant friends right now... so if you come to Michigan, don't drink the water or breathe the air or you'll get knocked up... I'm giving them all handmade gifts like these for their wee ones  Grin
