I haven't been blogging much lately, partly because I've been kind of busy and partly because I'm overwhelmed by the number of things I want to blog about. I start to worry that stuff will be old or out-of-date by the time I get to it, but frankly, you all don't know when I did stuff, so it doesn't matter if I blog about something that happened yesterday or six weeks ago! (That was a really long sentence!) So, I'm going to start just throwing stuff out there!

One of the main reasons I wanted to learn to crochet was so that I could make all the cute amigurumi figures I've seen out there. I was constantly seeing them on Etsy, only to find out it was a listing for a PATTERN and not the actual toy. I figured I better learn how to use those patterns! And, oh my goodness!, it is so fun and relatively easy!

I made this little guy in a couple of evenings for a swap. The pattern came from the book Amigurumi Two! by Ana Paula Rimoli. I was so pleased with how quickly he came together. And look how he can even come out of his egg shell! The cuteness is positively overwhelming!
