Next Stop: Toys

When I'm done with the current scarf projects I'm working on, I'm finally going to move on to crocheting toys. I bought two amigurumi books and I haven't used them. Actually it may be three books. I can't remember because the majority of my books are still in boxes from my move. I bought a bunch of yarn last week and the week before. I only meant to buy yarn two weeks ago but the craft Store Michael's gave me a coupon for 25% off my entire order. I couldn't let it waste so I used it. They gave me another coupon ... I need to go back (help).

If you don't know what amigurumi is, here are some examples:

Amigurumi cream and pink teddy bear keychain
Amigurumi Chocolate cupcake bear with a cherry on top
Amigurumi Chickie Bird with crown

It should be fun ... hopefully...

Blue Scarf for Friend #1

I promised my friend a scarf a long time ago. I never started on it because he told me he wasn't a scarf person. Now he tells me he is a scarf person. So I started on the scarf this week. I would have been further along but I started a pattern that didn't really work out so I unraveled part of it and started again.

I came to the Bronx today to visit my mom. So now I'm chilling on the couch waiting for the Giants game to start and crocheting. Hopefully the Giants play better this week. They've been playing horrible for the last two weeks.
