This is the 2nd one that I made. I have no idea where the first one is. Big Boy was having a great time sending it into "outer space" as he launched it repeatedly straight up into the air.
I guess I could look under some furniture for it. I already checked in the toy boxes. The first one is much smaller than this one.
This one is made with a bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. I don't have any of the details in front of me - sorry!
Everyone loves him. See?
*I started crochetting when I was a little lass. My grandma, mother, and Nancy Camerrata (the shortest, nicest, Italian woman I ever knew) all taught me. Mostly I crochetted those twisted wormy things and Granny square slippers. I loved the process of making things... it was the start of my crafty ways!
**a lot of the patterns I've seen for crocheting online are still kind of hokey (twisted-worm-and-Granny-square-slipper hokey). I still love the beautiful, clean lines of knitting. But the cuteness of the amigurumi toys is irresistable!
A note on the pictures: The last picture of me with the Cabu makes me laugh. I was trying to smile a big, cheesy smile, but it looks like I'm trying to bite the poor thing! And is it wrong that I take pictures of my kiddos with the flash on while they're sleeping?
