Details of swap:
As the title implies for this swap well be making amigurumi and sending it to your partner. Wikipedia defines amigurumi as the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. Amigurumi are typically cute animals (such as bears, rabbits, cats, dogs, etc.) but can include inanimate objects endowed with anthropomorphic features. Amigurumi can be either knitted or crocheted. In recent years crocheted amigurumi are more popular and more commonly seen.

Crochetme.com offers some basic amigurumi patterns and guidelines for those that have never made amigurumi before:  http://crochetme.com/patterns/item/Toys+%2526+Games

I dont want this to be a too big or stressful swap so Ive decided about month to make 2 medium items. Feel free to discuss with your partner about making more if you want.

Large: 3 or more hours to make
Medium: 1 to 2 hours to make
Small: less than 1 hour to make

2 small=1 medium
1 medium + 1 small=1 large etc.

i feel compelled to use colorful language!!!!! Angry i just signed up for a swap, which would be my first one.....

and then i see this. i love amigurumi so now i feel extremely sad Cry

and what really sucks is the fact that my send out for the other swap is 2/28, which is sooo close to the end of signups for this one but still sooo far away Embarrassed

I had that happen, too, with my first swap - suddenly, I saw tons of swaps I wanted to do! I'm sure there will be another ami swap in the future, though - or you can suggest one!
