Yay! Something new! I finished this little guy quite a few days ago actaully, just haven't had a chance to post. He's the first amigurumi I've made with intention of selling on-line. I'm thinking of posting him on Etsy.com very soon. There are a couple things I want to figure out first like: how do I want to "package" him and should I tag him??? What do people normally do? I've never sold any of my handmade items to a "stranger" before. haha Anyway, his name is Denny because he is made mainly from a DK yarn called Denim. I forget what brand... will have to look at it later. The white bits are worsted weight. His head is stuffed with polyfill and his body is filled with poly-pellets. Around his neck is a crocheted collar made from black crochet thread ornamented with a bell and a little orange glass bead fish from Thailand (my mom brought me a ton of beads - woohoo! Thanks, mom!). He stands about 4" I think (I haven't officially measured him yet) and he can actually stand on his own by using his tail and legs as a "tripod". hahaha Anyway, hope you like him. (^_~)v

After I made that second RK bag, the friend I made it for... well, her husband wanted one to put in his car. hahaha Introducing Roadkill Kitty Super Deformed! Yup, that's what I've been trying to do. Shaping and reshaping trying to get it to a good size. And I think I actually came up with a standard body/pattern that I like. I'm going to try to use the same pattern now to make some other animals. Like, normal ALIVE cats. *wink* So stay tuned. (^_^)v I still have to add a hanging mechanism to this RK, perhaps something from the top of his head because I didn't think about weighting his body properly before hand. oops. And the husband also requested tire tracks across the body, hee hee, but I'm not sure how I want to do that yet...

Mother's Day is almost over here in the U.S. and I didn't even get to wish all you mums out there a very happy Ami-Mum's Day! Thank you kittykat for leaving me a message! It was a really sweet surprise and a lovely way to end a hectic day. (^_^)v I promise I'll be posting something crochet wise soon. It might not be an ami though. (T_T) I've kinda hit a creative wall on that front. But I feel the itch coming back, so hopefully I'll be able to turn out something new soon. Thanks again for checkin' up on me!! XOXO
