Not slacking... really!


The hardest part about any hobby is keeping up with it I think. At least, it is for me. But I want you all to know that just because I haven't posted anything lately doesn't mean I'm not slaving away on something! Allergies really took me out yesterday though, I was literally in bed ALL DAY (my poor daughter was such a good and patient girl), but today I'm sort of back with a vengence! Woohooo. K, this is what I've been doing...
Still working on a friend for my poor lonely pup. It's taken me forever to piece him together, I don't know why. I'm finally down to the last bits - the eyes and attaching the head to the body. Oh and woops! I almost forgot to make him a tail! *searching for hook and yarn*
I have a little black sketch book filled with drawings of ideas for amigurumi. Most of them from things I've seen on the internet somewhere and a few my own brain children. This tiny bunny is a touch of both. I'm stuck now however... not sure what to do about limbs. Maybe I can forgo them altogether? This bunny was destined to be a gift ornament.
Well, hopefully I'll be back soon with some finished amigurumi. See ya!

i like the bunny...seems perfect for a 2 year old and the doggie he's so cute....what kind of yarn did you use for the dog and was he your own creation?

I began to answer your question here... but it seemed a bit lengthy when I was done. So another "informational post" soon!

hmmmm it took me a while to find where this new comment was posted and since I have no way of answering you, other than hoping you'll come back to this post, here i am! really i had no special trick when working with "hairier" yarn. the trick is to just go slow and be careful. actually, after you get going you'll just find that your fingers know the way. i think it helps a huge lot that you pick the right needle size. too small will make it even more difficult! good luck!
