After the success of my first swap the need to craft for some else is pretty strong so the next swap im involved in is an amigurumi
Amigurumi (編み包み, Amigurumi? lit. Knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures
there are some really great patterns out there on the net and in books.
some really great free ones too if you look in the right places
so wish me luck and ill post pics soon (as soon as its competed and my swap partner has received..... she lives in norway!!)
