Hooking away!

I am still addicted to Amigurumi. I bought a book of patterns at the book store, have been trolling the Net for free patterns and discovered the treasure trove of cool patterns, Etsy.

This is Gato, the Cat. He belongs to BB but he helped out with dinner tonight, Img_7340_1_2 he likes to cook. Though his name is Spanish, it also is French for cake (gateau), so that might be why.

He has a friend, Confetti, the Elephant. He also belongs to BB. She likes to count his spots.

Img_7345_2  I have in fact made several for Dumpling as well, but she would not lend them to me to photograph them. They are very busy playing in her room and couldn’t pause for a picture. I’ll have to try to take a picture of them at play at some point.

In the mean time, I attacked the first of the 5 Yo Gabba Gabba patterns that I bought from CraftyisCool on Etsy.

I started with Muno because he is only one color and it was very fast. Started him last night and finished today at Knitting group. I already made the head for Foofa as well. I have until next Wednesday to finish them all….

    Very cool. I tried learning this once, but I couldn’t grasp it. You’re making me want to give another go.

    This is how it happens, you fall in with the cool crowd and become a hooker.
