I've been getting into crocheting lately, it's a very calming activity. I've been working on a scarf, but recently I've been seeing a lot of these crocheted dolls and animals- called "amigurumi," which means "crocheted doll" in Japanese- it seems like there's a huge movement for crocheted cute things there, which has spread here. I started noticing them I think at ACen 09, but I really noticed them at ACen10. I'm a sucker for cute things, so I decided to try making one myself.
So here is a baby chick! I marathoned this today.
Look, he has a little tail!
Definitely learned a lot about crocheting doing this. It actually helped me learn the basics more than the scarf I'm currently working on (I did most of that backwards, oops), but I think he came out cute for a first try. I definitely want to try making more! Including Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet.
