Amigurumi Madness

On Wednesday, we received a shipment of a new release book, Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli, and I've been going crazy ever since!

The cup was the most fun to make! I absolutely love it. I made the cup out of Needful Yarns Kim, the turtle is made out of Classic Elite Pebbles, and the daddy Lion is made out of scraps of Cascade 220 and Ella Rae Classic. I have yarn to make several other of these fun little guys, so you may see more photos in the days to come.

Oops, I Did It Again!

So much for my New Year's Resolution of posting at least once a week! SIGH! But, at least I am knitting, crocheting and needlepointing. My most recently completed project is a crocheted "Pidge" that I designed as a give away pattern for the 3K Club at 3 Kittens:

It was a very quick and simple project. It took 3 skeins of Mirasol Sulka and a wonderful button made by Eric Salverda (a teacher at my children's school, my son's football coach and the dad of one of our employees). We originally received our first Pidge pattern from Misti Alpaca and used that as our 3K Club Perk during January. It was so popular that we got a second design from them for another knitted Pidge, and I made this crocheted one up for all of the people who wanted to crochet one.

I've also been stitching away on two needlepoint canvases. I don't have my camera with me at home, so I can 't take a photo of them in progress, but here are the two designs I'm working on from Maggie Co
