Lets face it, the majority of my projects, knit or crochet, don’t rely too much on shaping or sizing. I rarely pay attention to gauge, and in the case of hats, I’m usually making things up as I go along. I also have a chronic problem with finishing things I’ve started, but I’ll focus on that later. Today is about expansion, not completion… right?
So like I said, most of my crochet and knit items are flat pieces, but today I received a pretty neat gift: Yummy Crochet, a kit with a book of amigurumi patterns and all the supplies I’ll need to make 2 of the patterns: a cupcake and a doughnut. Now, I’ve tried a couple times making stuffies and other small pieces, but I generally got frustrated with all the small pieces or bored with sewing all the pieces together, but this time I am determined to get through at least the cupcake before it ends up on my to do pile for another year. Things that I will learn: How to use safety eyes, how to position safety eyes and embroider a cute little mouth in such a way that the thing actually retains its cuteness, and how to sew the pieces together without trying to rip things apart in the process. Patience and perseverance!
There are a couple extra things that I really want to talk about here, but I must wait. Partly for the photos that I don’t have yet, and partly for things to be actually complete before making an announcement for once. But damn am I excited about this one. Coming soon: More progress and awesomeness!
