After selling my 4th amigurumi in my shop last week I was really inspired to get back to making them. For the past two weeks I had been knitting a lot so it was nice to get back to crocheting. I've decided to add some 100% acrylic ones since I know some people may be allergic to wool. I will be using Hobby Lobby I love this yarn and went on a shopping spree on Monday and got 18 colors so I am going to be working on a lot of amigurumi for the next couple of weeks. I'm also working on some new animals to add to the shop.
The first animal I am working on is an owl. I love making owls so I want to make a couple available in different colors. I'm not sure what color I am going to choose for its eyes yet but at least I have the head and body finished.
Since I sold a deer last week the second animal I am working on is another deer. This one will be a little different than the last. I just love this shade of brown. I'm thinking of maybe making a bear with this color.
I found these really cool tags on Stitchdragon.com and I am working on making one for each color. I thought it would be a good idea to be able to see what colors are available so when I want to start another project its easier to look at all the colors at once. I'm using clear shipping tape to laminate them so they don't get messy right away.
On Monday I also got my ChiaoGoo Red Lace Knitting needles and so far I am loving them. I was finally able to continue working on my bella shawl. The nupps were impossible to work with my last needles but these make it easier. I'm still new at making them so they are not perfect but I think I'm getting the hang of it.
