My Ami's

I recently entered an amigurumi swap on craftster. i had to create two medium sized amis i ended up doing a large one and a what i would call a medium. im not sure if anyone else would call it a medium but it took me more than a few hours to get it right!!! Cant show pics just yet!!!

but during that swap i kept getting my ami wrong so i ended up starting again about 4 times (grrrrrrr!!!)

and to stop the frustration i also made a bunny as a present for one of my daughters friends

and here it is


isn't it lovely!!! to be honest i couldnt work out of it was meant to be a boy or girl so i made her a dress too


doesnt she look sweet

also i wrote the pattern down as i went along and once ive seen to it that its correct (by making another one) and posting more pics in the digital pattern ive started to create i will be making the pattern available to buy in my etsy shop.

......... i have also been thinking about selling the actual item especially to those who like it but are not sure on crochet or cant be bothered and just want the finished item NOW.

well anyways thats all for now ill speak again soon


I have recently been introduced to amigurumi (during my very first swap on craftster) and i have found it rather addictive i have searched the internet and have numerous ami's saved in my book marks, i have been to the local library and taken out books about ami's and i have a stash of my own designs (two of which i have just sent to norway in another swap on craftster) im hopeing my partner will enjoy them both [crossed fingers for luck]

Its also a great way to downsize my stash of wool /cottons and material (clothes). I do have to be honest it is taking a long time to downsize my stash lol but im enjoying it a great deal especially when ive given them away and its takes a bit for the new owner to realise its handmade by me , the look and questions i receive is awesome and makes me want to go create another one!!!!

my blog

Considering i named my blog knitty sam i dont seam to have done alot of knitting recently ive been doing more sewing and crochet ..... so maybe i have to change the name. I know i cant change the url but i might have to change the name on the main screen.
