It is crocheted SFabulous.

I've just learned to crochet myself within the past year and this pattern (found on Lion's Brand website under amigurumi) is not difficult at all. The books that I used to learn were Crochet for Dummies and Visual Crochet. Smiley

Thanks so much!  That is going to be my New Year's resolution, learn to crochet.  I will see if my library has those books.

My suggestion is to start with "heavy" yarn instead of the finer stuff. I started with the fine and nearly lost my mind because I couldn't see what was going on with my stitching. You can easily get into crochet for under $10 if you get a good book from the library. Once you get the hang of it, pop over to the Lion's Brand site (you have to register but it's free) and you can go nuts! You only need a few basic stitches to do simple amigurumi.

Have fun SF!

I think a great yarn to start with is red heart, even though it is itchy it is great for learning on because its cheap and doesn't come apart.

I have very limited internet access so if you don't hear from me don't worry I'll be around soon

SpencerTwins Recieved her package for Tyler Last thursday, and here is one of the things I made for him.

I also made him a Cars toy Apron and a pouch to put stuff in. I also sent a bunch of extras, unfortunately this was the only piture I could take before my camera broke.

SpencerTwins said that Tyler Loves everything, so that's great!
