Amigurumi. What is that you ask? Well, let me tell you that it is a new found passion of mine! Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting dolls. Deb bought me two Amigurumi books for Christmas and I'm hooked! The stitch in the 'gurumis are very small and so I've ordered ergonomic crochet hooks online. Mom and Dad are picking them up for me today. I can't wait to get my hands on them.
Here's my first attempt at an Amigurumi...yeah, it's only a carrot, but next it's strawberries, then a full cheeseburger with the works, cookies and then it's on to the animals.
I'm pretty excited to be one of these crafty moms. Violett and my niece and nephews will reap the benefit of my craftiwork!
