I traded some hand dyed yarn for some amigurumi recently and I'd love to show it off: First, an orange from Javastain! I already have a cherry so I'm thinking there may be a day in my future where I have a bowl of crocheted fruit.
Next up, domUNIQUE sent me two things: a hanging bird and a banana tampon cozy.
I'll give you a moment to take that in.
I love everything and I'm still considering adding "write amigurumi patterns" to my to-do list of 2007. That list is getting long, but it mostly all falls in the category of living the dream or returning to the Bohemian Lifestyle.
I actually submitted a pattern to the new Stitch n' Bitch Men's Book but I haven't heard anything back. It's okay because if/when I get rejected, I already have this amigurumi pattern to launch here in 2007 and I can cross that off my list then! I won't yet reveal what the project is but I might make some for gifts this year. It's crochet for guys, technically, but I would never ever keep a lady from hooking.
