Amigurumi Heart

I have been playing with my crochet hook again this week and have come up with this little cutie. Am not sure the hook will ever completely replace my lovely pointy sticks but it is nice for a change. I also love embroidering on felt but for some reason never get round to it, possibly because it takes more concentration and by 7pm I am usually half asleep (thanks to the smallest monkey who seems to need 5 minutes sleep per night).  But this was fun and I am very happy with the result.

Amigurumi and Crochet!

So yesterday morning I was looking through some blogs and getting really annoyed that I couldnt crochet. I recently got a little book of amigurumi patterns in a kniting magazine so I thought I would give it a go. And once you figure out that double crochet in English is single crochet in American and treble is double its surprisingly easy! So here are the pics of my first ever crochet projects, I just used what I know about knitting to figure out the patterns aftwer having a read through that.

I love that you dont have to sew them up at the end, that must be the best thing about it! So will prob have a go at some other stuff. Patterns will probably follow as soon as I have worked out how to write them!
