It’s time to show you my first steps into crocheting amigurumis. To tell you the truth – sometimes I think “enemy-gurumis” would be a better name for those little toys. I just can’t relax while crocheting amigurumis with all those tiny little legs and arms and feet and ears and tails and what not. And after that comes the worst part: Sewing all the pieces together. Now you might ask why I keep crocheting those enemy-gurumis when I actually don’t enjoy it? Because some of them are just too cute to resist and in the end the finished item is worth the effort! Just take a look at this little guy:
I’ve found this wonderful free pattern for the chubby fish on mygurumi. No teeny weeny arms and legs and tails but just a few fins. I also replaced the crocheted eyes from the original pattern with plastic eyes and it was so easy (almost relaxing) to make, that I’ve already made two of them, a boy and a girl :)
Maybe I’ll make some more fish for some guys in my poker round (those of you who are interested in poker know perhaps that a bad player is called a fish, and this is always a nice way to tease someone at the table).
To round up this topic for today, here’s a picture of John’s favorite kind of fish, that is to say the “real” fish:
Fishing is his passion (although he’d never reject a big poker fish either), and this week-end he’ll be out with his guys and hopefully get a bite or two. That means for me: A whole week-end home alone, time for myself and maybe some more enemy-gurumis :)
