one was not enough

My introduction to amigurumi (cute crocheted figures) was the  santa that I shared earlier this month

he was fun to make and looks cute and festive.

Then I began to notice other figures in magazines and online and I thought ‘one more won’t hurt’.  Staying in the festive theme I created a reindeer head and added a red nose for a Rudolph effect

and before I’d even stuffed the antlers I was back online looking at other patterns and wondering about what else I would make.  They are satisfyingly fast to make and so quirky.

I now have over 30 patterns bookmarked, am familiar with the basic instructions and processes, and have bought two kinds of eyes.  I can’t show you the other photos yet as I’m making them on contract for Santa – I will share next week.

When those are finished, I’m tempted to make a cute crochet hook (!) that I’ve seen – it really is a whacky creative space.

Love that reindeer. Are there non-holiday patterns or is this something just to do in December?
