the most adorable critters
You remember those little sheep I showed you? You know the ones. Where I not only re-learned how to crochet, I also learned how to read a crochet pattern. You remember those right?
Some of you asked what the books is. The book is "Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Amigurumi" by Tomoko Takamori. It is good luck for me that this book is translated into English, as the learning curve would have been far steeper if I had had to learn Japanese as well as crochet.
There are the most adorable critters in this book. Of course, I start with one of the more difficult patterns: sheep from the woolen planet.
This is what I have so far.
I'm looking at this mess of body parts and I imagine what the finished product would look like if it was put together by someone who had no idea what it is suppose to be. Imagine, a foot for a face and a tail for a foot. It would look quite silly really. I think to myself, I sure am glad it's not my job to put this mess of body parts together.... oh wait, it is. ops.
This is going to be an adventure.
