Who? What? eh?

This is the blog of a constant crafter - a 'showcase' for some of the things I make, some hints for crafting & recylcing - lots of photos and some words. I hope it will inspire.

A is for Ant - plus a fuzzy Starfish

Another letter in the ongoing Alphabet project is done - only 19 more! This is another wonderful pattern from "Amigurumi Knits" by Hansi Singh, quite difficult to knit but beautifully detailed - very closely observed.

Makes a very large Ant - at your next picnic just be thankful that real ants are not this size!

Ant looks a lot better with wire in the legs but our grandchildren are too young for toys with wires - so this ant is a bit floppy!

And I couldn't resist making the Starfish from the Amigurumi book but I already have toy critters for the letter S (there are a lot of animals with names that start with S!) so this will be a late Christmas pressie for a friend's bub. Used a mohair blend yarn (I'd dyed it myself) so this is a slightly fuzzy, fluffy Starfish ... Asterias mohairii perhaps??
