First of all, Seth says thanks for all the love.
Oh boy-so about a year and a half ago i started learning crochet and i did alright but it just wasn’t sticking so i set it aside.
i was at Joann craft store and i came across this book:
Amigurumi! Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth Doherty
i love the dolls, she refers to them as humanoids. There are some other cute patterns as well like the carrot, strawberries, a cheeseburger with the works, all things i could make for Little Man’s kitchen. Also more cute animals that made me think well these look fun and maybe if i am having fun and looking forward to the end result then i would get more into it, plus i had a 40% coupon 🙂
So i started out with the first project-A carrot.
It looks okay-very carrot-like but i am doing something wrong…and i can’t figure out how to fix it. It’s hard to see but basically where i am joining my row and starting the next one you get a little seam and my seam is twisting all around my carrot and it shouldn’t. It should stay in a pretty straight line going up the “back” of the project. I movd on and made a strawberry as well-same problem so again i have set my crocheting aside again to work on what i know knitting cute animals 🙂
When we get back from our trip then i will pull it back out but i have a lot going on right now and until we leave. i have a crochet book from Debbie Stoller and i think i need to just go back and start from the beginning and relearn all the little details i need to know again. i mean i remember all the basics but something isn’t clicking so i think it will help.
Do any of you crochet or have you tried it?
