ten plagues and drip wine on your plate, I looked up at a penguin mobile hanging in the room and shrieked PENGUINS!, thus inventing the Plague of Penguins. So when my mom was headed to a seder at this same friend's house last week, and this pattern (the second most popular amigurumi pattern on Ravelry, and with good reason. fast, fun, turns out cute, I already want to make another one...) was the April pattern at Amigurumi of the Month, I knew it was time to put one of these little waddlies on the hooks and send him along as a gift. He even got to sit at Elijah's place at the table, apparently!
this pattern, but I made it smaller, of course), who's going as a "sorry your commission is so late" gift to the person who ordered Lilac Cat 2.0...
The pattern is aces---so tiny I didn't even have to make it smaller, and really sweetly shaped, and you can learn some Finnish crocheting terms while you go. ("Täytä häntä" means "stuff tail"!)
this great little applique [I used the "small guppy" here] to create the above fishy bookmarks) project. I am so excited about the wonderful response I got from all of you lovely people on Wednesday about the bookworms. Thanks for all your comments and suggestions!
Heather reminded me of Jeanne DuPrau's lovely The City of Ember, so I had a bookworm suggest it yesterday.
Ida B: …and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World, a truly amazing book that I credit with getting me back into childrens' literature a couple years ago.
So keep suggesting books, please, and also go check out the other finished/fiber goodies at FO Friday and Fibers on Friday!
