Okay, it's not WeeWonderfuls or anything but this is the bunny that I made for Lowell's Easter basket. I taught myself to crochet not too long ago for two reasons. One, to be able to make a baby blanket for my friend and her new little guy (check). And two, so I could make some loveys for Lowell (and okay, maybe
a couple several for myself). This is my second amigurumi attempt and I am pretty happy with the results. Especially the ears, which i came up with on my own. I used self-striping yarn for the outfit part. (It's magic! How does it know?) and the pink stuff is from a big stash I bought from a stoop sale last summer. (I still think about how stupid I was not to buy more, this woman was unloading a lifetime of hoarded yarn and I only bought two ziploc bags full. Argh. Seeing how at the time I could neither knit or crochet I was actually practicing restraint). I used the dude pattern over at Crochet Me, but reduced it a little bit, if anyone's interested. Or still reading. Have I lost you? Did you know i was a closet crafter?
The other night before drifting off to sleep I said the following to my mate in all seriousness: "Man, Lowell had a really solid poop today. I was so happy." I think I might need to get out more.
The posting here is going to get erratic for the next couple weeks since I am actually going to have to start packing for our impending move one of these days. By "erratic" I mean that I'll actually be posting more in order to procrastinate. No, no. I am turning a new leaf. I have a shiny binder and some pretty markers and lots of tape. This is going to be the best move ever!!
