Ana Paula's first book introduced me to Amigurumi and I still enjoy her patterns though I tend to adapt them to my own style now, I thoroughly recommend anyone buy both her books - they are fantastic! Speedy (the turtle) was my first ever attempt and now that I'm more proficient I cannot believe how long he took! I also forgot about his eyes until I was done and had to stitch them through the whole head. The octopus was made with a thinner yarn that I'm not so fond of and my goodness making that many legs was atrocious!
My most adventurous endeavor was the Thanksgiving Turkey's of 08 - this isn't even all of them - I had to make two more on Thanksgiving morning!
My first attempt at a design was this Robot, he was a funny little fellow to make but husby wanted a robot so here he is.
My second design attempt was Piddles- he was a lot of fun to make and I wish I had written the pattern down.
Then using the Turkey pattern and on a Holiday roll I designed my snowman - this one I remembered to write down and some day will type up to offer as a freebie for anyone out there who wants it.
I am working on a new design right now, I get about three rows done a day between playing with Toby and cleaning the house, but I am so excited by the new colours of Red Heart yarn I bought. I am also writing it down as I go this time!
Oh Lollychops thank you for bringing Teal into my life!
