Amigurumi!

I buy yarn and turn it into stuffies!

I have made several things — scarves, mostly — but they haven’t been terribly interesting. Katie really liked the one I made for my Mom but otherwise they’ve just been scarves.

Then I decided to graduate to much more difficult crochet and started making amigurumi! These stuffies are tons of fun to make and they’re utterly adorable when they’re done. The first one I completed was a purple octopus but I didn’t have plastic eyes yet so I had to make the eyes. He turned out pretty good, and I am likely going to make him a pal. Katie immediately kidnapped him and now the purple octopus lives in Katie’s bed.

The more impressive amigurumi I made was the pink bunny in the white dress. The dress came out so-so, but the bunny came out spectacularly adorable. I can always make another dress, or a couple of dresses. The bunny is small and squeezable. By tomorrow morning, the bunny will also be stolen.

I love yarn you can squeeze! Yay!
