Amigurumi

I did it! I made my very first amigurumi!

Amigurumithe Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. The word is derived from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.



I finished this little giraffe up on Friday night. Free pattern to make your own here. I got stuck a few times, got mad, threatened to pull out all the stuffing if I didn't get some cooperation with the inanimate object that gave a blank stare back at me - but I did it! 

Next up, a cute little elephant.

   

I also found some cute patterns for more wrist warmers, headband/ear-warmers and beanies. The cold weather will be here before you know it!


Dinner on Saturday night. My VERY FIRST attempt at homemade rolls. This isn't the recipe I wanted to try, just one I found off of the back of the yeast.

This week, I'll be trying these. Yum!
