Yarn play

Forgive me for being absent. I've been preoccupied with my new toys.....some wool and a crochet hook. Ack! I can't believe I'm enjoying this! We've also been a very snotty household (blame the bub's germs) the past week. The crochet thankfully can be taken to the couch or to bed. So after about four days of wrist-work, this collection of limbs, ears and torso finally took shape.


After some more stitching, which took less time than one of those ears, here's the bub's new playmate. I just managed to take one happy snap, before she swiped it off the fabric pile.


And speaking of fabric, I do believe the mojo has been restored back to ship-shape. Very soon, I'll be showing some fabric I've been playing with.

Hokay, we're off to enjoy the sun. Cheerio!

I love your crochet!! I can't believe that you haven't been doing this for long! Hope the bub and you feel better soon!

How wonderful are you at crochet. You make it sound and look easy to create that gorgeous little bear. Perhaps I will need to try my hand at creating some crocheted toys, although those ripple blankets do look wonderful.

Jade - the bear rocks! You obviously have the crochet gene. Hope you are all on the mend soon. Glad your mojo is making an appearance, have you seen mine, it's missing?

Well done Jade - I know how to crochet and I wouldn't have a clue how to do one of those. I bet the bub loves it!

i got a great amigurumi book in english called kyuutu and got my mum to make things as I'm not too good with the hook!
