For my birthday Shannon got me an amigurumi book. I have made 4 things from it so far.
I realized after making a doggie and his puppy that I was crocheting wrong. So I watched some really good YouTube videos and learned how from Aunt Esther.
Here is the first one...
And here is the second one...
There may be more, but I just needed this much. They helped a bunch. Then I made an octopus and a penguin. However, I am still not doing it right because my penguin is about 12" tall and the pattern says he will be about 7". Hmm, mayhaps I'm not crocheting tight enough? I am usign the recommended hook size and have the right number of rows/stitches.
The penguin is adorable! I'll have to get some pics up later.

With no camera still, you will have to excuse the poor image quality. But isn't too bad coming from my 2 year old phone.
A few months ago, my cousin Diana asked me to make her a blanket for her new daughter, Laura, who should come around any day now. So I made it. I finished it this weekend and made a cute little creature to go with it. This was my first blanket. The pattern can be found here. it's the Intarsia Polka-Dot Baby Blanket. It's about 40" by 40" when done. The creature pattern is the same as I used before. It can be found here.

I found these neat little guys a while ago. I haven't made them all, only one of them. But he is pretty cute and didn't take much time. So I may make some more. But what I'll do with them, I just don't know. The pattern is from knitty. The little rice sachet in their bottom gets very warm in the microwave as well.

(picture from Michelle herself)Michelle had a vision, a vision of Christmas mittens. I helped her vision become a reality.
I used a pattern from here. Now, you may notice that my mittens are not as "simple" as their mittens. I altered the pattern a little to get the hat effect and candy cane thumb. I also added a pom-pon to the top and an extra layer of white knit to the back to create a rim for the hat.

Continuing my new thing, I made some more finger puppets. The elephant, bird, and monkey. I didn't use a pattern, I kinda just followed the same idea as before and added when I thought I should. They might now be great (I don't like the elephant's trunk), but they are cute!

I don't have pictures of them all, but here is one of the three finger puppets I've made. The first two I made were a tan mouse and a black cat. I made them a while ago and I used a pattern from this place. The giraffe above, I made up based on what I learned from the previous link and what giraffes look like. I will add the pattern later.

I knitted up this cute little Halloween heart in about 1.5 hours. That includes the knitting, felting, stitching, and stuffing. The only wool yarn I have is black and green. So I decided to make a little black one with orange eyes for Halloween. Really though, I have absolutely nothing to do with it.
Pattern: Hearts at Mochimochi Land
