Check out my very first amigurumi. I am so please with how it turned out. It is quite a bit more pink in person (It is, after all, October.). The pattern is from KnitPicks. It was well written and very easy to follow. I used Sugar & Cream and a #7 crochet hook. I will probably make at least one more in pinks before I move on to blue or maybe brown. I love the look of variegated on the bottom with a solid on top, so will probably stick with that.
In other news, I have started adding YouTube links in my side bar. Between the TKGA Basics class that I am taking and a particularly complicated knitted Xmas present, I have found these technique videos invaluable. I am also going to add some basic knitting videos, as I come across ones that I like. I get a lot of inquiries when I am KIPing. I would like to be able to refer some of those to my blog.
