i have an 80% done monkey somewhere, but i decided to throw this together the other day for a friend who wasn't feeling well... i'm not super happy with how it came out, but she appreciated it.  in any case, this is the get-well-soon-turtle:


if i make another one, i will:
  • use yarn that is in more visibly contrasting colours for the stripes on the shell
  • not sacrifice the idea that all the yarn should be more or less the same size to the idea that i wanted to make something out of whatever supplies i had on me at the moment
  • pay more attention to the pattern when it comes to turtlefeet
  • make a cuter face, again, using proper materials instead of just what was in my bag at the time

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

the pattern's from this book

someone else posted some cute things they had made from it, so i put my rusty japanese to use and went looking for it online... turns out the postage to england from japan costs twice as much as the book itself!  looking through it though, i would actually go for one of the earlier editions, as they have more stuff i would actually make.

Thank you! That's really sweet of you to say  Smiley. The nice thing about amigurumi is that they can be quite small, they don't cost much or take much time to make, and so it's easy to practice.
