Dust off your yarn and let's get playing![/size]
For those who are interested..."Ami" means knit/crochet in Japanese and "nuigurumi" means stuffed creature, so amigurumi is a stuffed knit/crochetted creature.  Well, that is simple and can mean just about anything from a bobomb in your pocket to the little hooked kitty sitting on your shelf.  Often cute or fanciful and not commonly large, amigurumi is an enjoyable craft with a nice finished product even for beginners.

Where do you find patterns for amigurumi? All over the internet are quite a few sites that have free amigurumi patterns.  Some require registration, some don't.  Of course Craftster is my favorite. But here are a few that I have found.

http://craftlog.org/craftingjapanese/archives/amigurumi/ -a diverse site with a lot of pictures and some good links.

I am totally joining this! I'll probably end up sending in the questionnaire really soon even though I said I'd wait to sign up for anything. I don't want to miss out, the last round was one of my favorite swaps ever!

3 weeks for SUs. I'm going to wait until I get my other 2 swaps sent out to SU then. I should make it, I think the SO dates are about the same as this SU, but we'll see.
