That's great!

Why doesn't someone come out with dark colored stuffing? Cheesy
I have been wondering the same thing.
Great job! I have also found that my stuffies seem to photograph with the camera picking up the stuffing even if it doesn't show in real life. So I wouldn't worry too much about it.

usually i use a size f hook for amigurumi. i would use an E more, but it's hard with worsted acrylic. the more you stuff it, the more defined its shape will be. b-t-w cute elephant! awesome for your first ami.

I like my E hook, I am fine with using E with worsted acrylic, but some people find it too tight. Basically, you stuffed it fine, if you really want you can just use a hook 2-3 sizes smaller than what the yarn label suggests to make the stitches tighter if you want. I love my E hook so much I could marry it!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.
