Crochet Madness!!!

There probably isn’t a craft I haven’t dabbled in at some point in my life, or at least tried my hand at. Some stuck; some lasted a month or two and faded away. I started crocheting when I was very young, and have picked it up now and again through the years. Recently I was tempted to play with yarn again. Take a look at what I’ve made over the last few weeks and see if you can figure out why…

lilac-pistachio-seta little sweater set with not one, but two hats. I couldn’t make up my mind.

Yup! My son and daughter-in-law are gonna make me a grandma, and it’s a little girl!!! I’m so excited I could explode! Baby isn’t due the beginning of January, though, so we’ve got a while.

In the meantime, once these were done I started looking at what else I could crochet, and found this entire world of something they call Amigurumi, which is basically little crocheted animals and things. I decided to start with this little Chinese rabbit called Tuzki. He has pipe cleaners in the arms and legs, so he’s sort of posable.

tuzki-dollI’ve got lots more patterns downloaded – this is gonna be fun!

Anyhow, lots to get done this weekend that does not involve a crochet hook, so let me get moving!

Have a great weekend.
