well i got part of the head done but was majorly unsatisfied with it so i promised myself to start it as soon as i got a break from school  (who knew just starting college was so hectic. i spent all of my first few days leaving an hour early to find the class and finding it like 5 minutes before it actually started.)

anywhoo. this weekend i mostly have to read a bunch of stuff but i'm going to try to work on it some. during my  'studdying ADD' I swear i can't read more than one page of a textbook without my mind wondering but give me a novel and i can finish that bad boy in a day. I <3 Harry Potter.  Kiss

I don't know if i'm more excited about the cat or the clothes i plan to make for her.  Huh Tongue

seriously, is it possible to develop ADD later in life or do i just have a wandering mind.

OMG!  This is so cute!  I've got the head crocheted, and my version of ears (we'll see if I like them attached.)  I went and bought the pellets and stuffing so I'll hopefully have pics soon.

is the muzzle supposed to close up at the end. cause i did to row 11 and there is still quite a large hole. I'm so confused. Huh

Ambo - Yes, the muzzle closes up at the end.  It's kind of tricky to describe, but the mouth is worked from left to right (or right to left, whatever floats your boat), and not from the top down.  Since it's worked in the round, the front and back of the muzzle are crocheted at the same time, so you're actually making a flat muzzle in the round.  Maybe if you ripped out your R11, flattened the muzzle with your hands (just turn the "tube" in its side and smoosh), and re-crochet R11, the hole will disappear? 

Haha, hope that makes sense.  Looking forward to seeing your finished Amineko.

I'm working on one of these!Had no idea there was a crochetalong..

Here's mine so far.He's still nameless..And tail-less and missing one leg and a mouth for that matter Tongue
I couldn't find pellets to put in the body,so I'm using dried beans.

awww. kelly_bear.  That's cute, even though he's missing some parts. lol Cheesy  i love the color combination especially.

i've been working on my cat for a couple of days now. all of it's parts are finished, now I just need to stitch it together and finish it up. i got stuck at the mouth part as i've seen some cats with the mouth worked a couple of different ways, but i did it like the most recent cat pic above (missing parts, haha, but it is cute Smiley  )

Okay... I finished the kitty.. am now attempting to upload some pics...

This one was particularly frustrating (though not necessarily difficult) to piece together. At first, I accidentally stitched her tail to where her arm should have been (oops!) but it all turned out well in the end.  I am debating on whether or not i will change her eyes.. not sure i like them the way they are or not.  Either way, I'm excited that she's done!  Now onto the Pirate Sam-Along!

This is the real Kitty that inspired the colors for this Amineko...
