Title: Amigurumi Addiction 3
Post by: goldfishpollywog on May 24, 2013 07:02:39 PM



Dust off your yarn and let's get playing!

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.  

Some previous Ami Galleries:

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

There are quite a few out there that seem basic....Although this is coming from the girl who can't crochet a straight line to save herself.

Seriously thinking about this one...been wanting to learn amigurumi for a long time.
You should do it!  Find more fun ways to be creative.  And youtube has no shortage of video tutorials to get you started!  PlanetJune even has some nice tips for lefties.

Okay, let me 'splain....No is too much, let me sum up.  

We had an odd number, and I hate working round robins in the mix, so if no one minds, I am duplicating myself merely for the sake of the swap....If only it worked on housekeeping....sigh.  Partners are listed below.  If I made any mistakes and you are working with, related to, or allergic to your partner, please let me know immediately and I will fix it on the double.

Everyone is happy though? ?
Sorry, I'm always scared I disappoint people when I organize.

On a completely unrelated note.  JoAnn's has 50% off coupons out for most things not on sale this week....Ummmmm my yarn stash has exploded again!

sorry i'm not too talkative. we just got new kittens this week, so things have been more chaotic than usual (not that i'm generally more talkative on a regular week). i didn't realize that when you have two cats, they spend all their waking hours beating the tar out of each other. :D

i've scoured my pattern library and my stash, and have settled on some lovely things to make my partner. and just in case anyone is wondering how perfect a match my partner is for me, she mentioned some things she'd like, and i just happen to have a pattern book full of those things that i've been waiting for an opportunity to use. :D but no hints as to what book or even what colors of yarn i'm using. bwahaha!  ;D

So excited to work on these because it gives me a chance to learn techniques that I haven't tried yet.

Had to go back to my hometown to care for my mother after some health issues, but since it is mostly just light housekeeping and cooking, and I found myself with quite a bit of crafting time! Therefore, I have finished one ami and am almost done with my second one! Hoping for some nice weather so I can crochet outside tomorrow!

75% done over here....well I think anyway.  Having to hide what I have crafted so it doesn't "escape" to Goose's room or out for show and tell with the neighbors.  Worth having to hide things though to have a kiddo who wants to show the world the Mom really has superpowers!
 ;)
Happy 4th to those in the States!  And happy belated Canada Day to our northern friends!

Same here :) 

I was hoping to ship today (the 5th) but now it looks like I'll be shipping on or around the 10th.     

One of the ami's I was finishing yesterday turned out a bit larger than I anticipated...and that was even with dropping down a hook size.  :D

I'm pretty jazzed about how it looks.  Hope you don't mind AlligatorJuice!

 Organizer note:    Please send by this Friday.  If you are unable to, please let myself and your partner know as soon as possible.

K, now that I've done what I'm supposed to.....Ran into a small problem... See I whipped up something and fell in love with it.   Now I have to make another as I'm not sure I can let go of this one. ;D

Just wanted to drop a note and let everyone know that I will be in an area with spotty service this weekend, so don't fret if I don't respond right away.  My brother sent me a message saying that Dad needed me, so what's a Daddy's girl to do but pop down there and cheer him up.   ;) 

Hoping to get everything shipped out tomorrow....if I would just leave the amis alone and pack them already!

I entrusted my package to my MiL to ship, due to her epic packing skills and proximity to a USPS location (we're in Canada, but my in-laws live in a town that borders Maine). I've been pestering her about mailing it but no word. I will update if I get word,but, Sugar Rush, don't be surprised if a package shows up in your mailbox without warning.

Just checking in to say I received Alligator Juice's amazing ami's!!!  I received yesterday but didn't have a chance to post until today due to my internet connection been down due to bad weather. 

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!  I love them!  Wonderful goodies -- I received an adorable squirrel, owl and mushroom and a dalek dishcloth :) 

Happy, Happy, Happy!!   :-* 8)

Also, my package is on its way to AJ and she should receive tomorrow.  Can't wait for her to see it!  ;D

I'll post in the gallery as soon as I can.

Don't stress!  Not only do I love them, but so do the neighborhood kids!
