Sheep Amigurumi

So I’ve been knitting a lot! But since I’m a novice, the tension is all nice and uneven and I’m really slow at it. I’m using English style after a failed attempt at Continental knitting, so, again, as a novice, I’m using that huge throwing motion that is already making my wrists hurt. I’m hoping as I become more efficient I can start flicking the yarn or otherwise become more efficient.

But I wanted to share a project I made for H’s grandparents this past Christmas.

Lamb Amigurumi

They raise sheep, so I thought this would be appropriate. This is the only picture I have, since I finished it late night before I gave it to them. The original pattern is located at Harugurumi. I changed it a little- I didn’t use fuzzy white yarn, and I changed the gray to a black, since they raise Hampshires. I love cute amigurumi!

One thing I’ve recently learned about myself is I like to shop for yarn when I’m stressed.

Red Heart Soft was on sale at Michaels, so I picked up some skeins of that. I also saw that lovely Red Heart Boutique purple yarn, I figured I could make a scarf out of that. A bit pricy normally, but armed with coupons it wasn’t so bad! And I’ve been on a dish cloth kick so I got another Lily Sugar ‘n Cream.

I specifically wanted to get orange yarn so I could make this little guy I dreamed up.

An amigurumi orange fruit! I made him to be the mascot of a Vitamin C and kids project I’m working on for my Nutrition Lifecycle project. The leaf pattern was found at Easy Makes Me Happy.
