UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!  OMG you guys.  I mailed DJ Lance his ami and he wrote me personally via email to thank me, then yesterday he sent me 10 pictures of himself with the amigurumi, in FULL COSTUME.  I'm dying.







My poor amigurumi monsters didn't have any leader, and they needed one.  So the keeper of the boombox, the fabulously flexible DJ Lance Rock is here to save the day!  

That hat was my favorite part to do!  I've never used eyelash yarn before, and I think I discovered the secret (and to all of you saying "duh" then skip this part Wink) --- a big hook and loooooooose stitches.  EXcuse me but I've only used wool and acrylic, bulky, thread, all that other stuff, and this was a different animal.  You can't even see your stitches!  Its all just a "feeling".  That's my tip of the day.

I'll post the boombox pattern free when I get all this written down!  I'll update this thread when I do!!  Thanks for looking!

***UPDATE:  I've posted the boombox pattern over on my blog!  Thanks for looking!
