I'm still quite new at crochet, but decided to spend the holiday making a new round of cute critters for the groovy people in my life.  Enjoy!



I cooked up this kitty pattern for my mom, as she's quite the feline fan.  The whiskers are made of floral wire that I Sharpie'd black, and she has a long stripey tail around back that isn't visible in the picture.



Another Christmas gift, this time for my dad. My friend Alexis dreamt up the pattern and kindly allowed me to borrow. He's been affectionately dubbed "Hootie," which I think suits him quite well.



My last Christmas break project, and a major first for me. As it turns out, I've been crocheting wrong for the last two months, and little Pigby here is my first properly crocheted project. He turned out much bigger than my usual critters, but was also very quick to make. His pattern came from Tamie Snow's Tiny Yarn Animals book, and he's named for Olive's pet in the outstanding (and recently cancelled) Pushing Daisies.

How were you crocheting before?  Everything's super cute, but I love the way the "improperly" crocheted ones look!  It reminds me of knitting.  Great creatures!  Cheesy

Yeah... as it turns out, all my original ones are actually done in slip stitch instead of single crochet stitches.  It takes quite a bit longer that way, so I'm glad that I learned the "right" way to do it, but there are some definite benefits to working them the "wrong" way!  The slip stitch critters turn out very tiny, and the fabric is almost solid (very few holes).  I'm working mostly in single crochet stitches now, since it's faster and much easier on the fingers, but I'll definitely revert back to my old ways when the occasion calls for it Smiley
