I'm usually not one drawn to super cutesy things but I am obsessed with these little Japanese crocheted stuffed dolls called Amigurumi. They are just too adorable for words. So I've decided to teach myself to crochet. Not that I need another project to add to my ongoing to-do list but I couldn't resist the urge to drop everything and crochet. I visited Lion Brand Yarn Studio in the city and bought a skein of yarn and a crochet hook and I've been watching tons of how-to-crochet videos on You Tube. I'll let you know how it goes!
Etsy has a treasure trove of both Amigurumi dolls and patterns. However, my favorites are by Amy Gaines. I will be purchasing her patterns for sure.
