I am sitting here freezing. The cold part of fall has crept in!
Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Mes Amis. My Amigurumis!! I decided to embark on crocheting some small little friends for my knit- and crochet-worthy daughter. Let’s be frank here. I do not consider myself a crocheter!! But I soldiered on.
For my first attempt, I chose Molang, the Fat Rabbit, because Laura has a picture of Molang on her phone:
It turned out pretty cute!
She loved it! So much so that she decided that she wanted to learn how to crochet to make her own amigurumi . Okay, let’s give it a go!
We went to a crochet class and brought little Molang with us. My first red flag was when the teacher said, “Gee, I wish I could make those!” Huh?? It was still a fun class, but I must say that it is a long journey from bulky crocheted blob to making tiny little toys.
My next foray was a much bigger challenge and maybe a bit over my head: The Chinese New Year Monkey. These can turn out quite large so I opted for fingering weight yarn.
A lot of weird finishing and putsing but I think he turned out pretty cute, too. Laura will see him tonight for the first time.
I learned a lot making these, but I’m not sure I want to part with Mes Amis!! You know I love my toys!!
Even Little Darcy hates to say goodbye!
Weird image…very weird!
PS: Baby Monkey needed a pacifier!
