Shawl Knit

WIP - KnitDo you still remember this work in progress that feels like forever will be WIP?  I remember I started to cast on around 2 years ago while I just started learn knitting. After a few drop stitches I gave up. I wanted to rip it off once, I felt the yarn colors are a little bit weird. But my laziness won, too lazy to rip it off. I changed my mind and just continue to knit it once a while and this is how it looks on June 2009.

Finally I did it. After almost 2 years, I cast it off and call it finished project. The shawl is not too wide but long enough. I am thinking to use it as a shrug-shawl.

I cannot stop making more amigurumi. I made more koalas and penguins from cuddly crochet creatures patterns.

I once wonder why people like to make this amigurumi things? I ignored all the beauty of amigurumi, but now…I don’t know how to stop and I even don’t want to crochet other project than amigurumi.

The good thing about making amigurumi is: I don’t make pile of work-in-progress. I can finish the project in no time and I don’t get the chance to be bored.

Maybe I should consider to also sew some dolls? I bet my cousin will tease me if I sew more dolls than she is ^_^

Penguin AmigurumiRecently I don’t have a lot of time to do crafts. Amigurumi is still the best choice for me. It’s quick and there’s no need to be perfect in following the pattern. It also don’t need huge amount of yarn. I can use my extra yarns and when I don’t have the instructed color I can always replace it with what I have in my stash.

Crocheted BearI never thought I will try some amigurumi crochet until I saw a lady in the coffee shop in our office building who make different dolls everyday.

I remember there are some amigurumi patterns in Thai magazine that I buy every month. So I chose the pattern that I thought will be easy enough for me and it surprised me I can do that in a short time.

Making the body parts is easy, to put it together is harder than to crochet the parts. My work is not quite neat yet, and it made me want to make another one short after I finished the bear.

I picked the bunny for my next project. The pattern still from the same magazine. I can do this while I’m watching some tv  series. I think I will make more amigurumi for a while.

The one that was uploaded in Crochet Partners have 4 rays while the one that I learned before has 6 rays.
