You know how I couldn't crochet last week? And have often said how much of a mindfuck crochet was in the past? A little holiday like today (and some relaxing over the weekend) has produced this!
Thank you for all your help, if you left me a comment, I came across Hooks and Needles, and Alicia's Easy Easy Easy (my words) Amigurumi Tutorial! Yay! Got the hang of chains and stuff, and THE best 'how to' for ring things, that are really easy to help you start the amigurumi. Then I followed the next Tutorial... and then found this easy birdy amigurumi and then realised I had no idea how to finish it all off!
Thank goodness for internet education! Here is the birdy's side and back:
Totally can't believe I made this bird! Psycho! I showed my Husbie and he couldn't look at it he thought it was so cute.
I think it's a mix of actually stopping my mind and concentrating (and watching the videos at least 4 times through) and having the space/time thing to actually learn a new technique. It's only round and single crochet, so nothing too crazy, and I used wool for the face, because I don't have any googley eyes in my stash. You know everything I do is a stashbuster thing!
Oh damn! I wanted to watch Neighbours (on holiday mode to the max darlings) but Malcolm and the Middle Repeats are on! ERK! I can't stand the father so have to go find other trash holiday viewing!
