New Year

for my new years resolution i'm going to post to my blogs at least once a week. so here is the first installment.

I just finished an amigurimi doll for some one's birthday. it was one of the hardest things to give away, i liked it so much. jack didn't want to let it go either.

he's from beth doherty's book "AMIGURUMI". i used cotton yarn i had in my stash instead of buying th acrylic recommended in the book. i like how he feels in cotton.

i went back and forth witht the color choices, but really like how the burgundy and green look together with the pale bunny. I want to make one for jack now, and nicole wants one for william, but i think i'll make him a lion for his birthday(he's a leo).

i really enjoyed making this and would love to start making original designs. i love doherty's proportions, how the firgure ends up cute but not cutsey. and the hinged arms... love em.

not sure what i'll use next time for yarn. acrylic or cotton. probably acrylic. i do like the shine of the 'satin' yarns they have out. and the colors are great.

i made alittle owl last night. going to photog him now in the falling snow.
