Another Hobby for me

Seems I have discovered another hobby (as if I hadn’t enough already): Amigurumi. These are small crochet animals for no other use than to amuse us.  Once you have worked out the general layout, it is relatively easy to produce your own creations. Because they are small they can be taken anywhere to while away the time and create something in the process. Most parts are globes or cylinders and their variations, stuffed and sewn together with safety eyes or embroidered features.  Google ‘amigurumi’ and you will be overwhelmed with the amazing creations of thousands of people.

Another advantage of this craft: it requires only small amounts of yarn and is fantastic to use up all these left-over bits that have accumulated over the years.
