Welcome home - Hello Harvest

I got her from Taiwan. A friend of mine helped me to buy her and mailed her to me! I am so thankful to have a friend helped me so much! :) Thanks Shirley! When she arrived she was a little messy, the seller put tapes on her hair and legs. I was so unhappy about that because she should know better how to treat a doll when she's in a long journey like this, at least wrap her with bubble wrapper!!!! Anyway, I cleaned her up and she looks great now!! There are still places need to be fixed but I know that she will be happy in my home with the other girls together! :)

Orange Octopus

In the past few days I crochet this octopus! The pattern is from Lion Brand, click here! I used Caron Simply Soft Brites - Mango (colorway) to make the body, and use Rubine Red to stitch the mouth and all these suckers. My DH called this little guy ANCE Octopus! LOL! I have also used a pair of 9mm yellow eyes here. I think it matches the body color very well and it looks great! The only problem I have when I am making this little guy is after I crochet everything, trying to put the legs onto the body, it doesn't have enough space under the torso to put all 8 legs together! I have to force the last one into its place and overlap with the other leg a little bit! :p

Rusty the cat

Here I make another knitted cat with different yarns. This time I used Lion Brand - cotton ease! So far I like the feel of this yarn, but I think I like to crochet it better than knit it! I still like wool yarn the best, very easy to knit! Anyway, I still like how the cat turns out! On this cat, I have used a pair of 9 mm black eyes, and a 6 mm eye as a nose.

Blythe's Beret hat

I just got this cotton yarn (Lion Brand Cotton Ease) and I thought I would give it a try to make a Beret! This yarn is not easy to work with, it splitting quite a lot, however I like the color, finally the hat came out pretty good! Beret is a little bigger than I thought, next time I will use a smaller yarn and try that again! This hat took me about 5 hours to do it, I know, I am a slow crocheter! :)

Big mouth Dog

I have used about a week to crochet this dog! It's not difficult to crochet, however, the legs are way too little for my big fingers. I can't imagine I will crochet something real small and little, I don't have the patience I think. Anyway, this pattern is from Amigurumi Collection Book Vol. 6. The dog is quite cute in the book, I don't know about this one I made, hopefully the kid that get it will be happy about this little doggie!

Kitty cat and a baby owl

Last week I made more animals, one is kitty cat. This cat pattern is so quick and easy. You will love it. The whole cat is made in Garter stitch with 3 pieces, head, body and tail. You don't have to do much sewing to get it done, the face expression has so much possibilities, you can use any kind of yarn to make the cat your own design, it's amazing! Here I used a pair of 9mm green pearl eyes and a 12mm nose. The cat size is about 4 inches tall and 5.5 inches long, I used Cascade 220 gray yarn and needle US6/4mm. The size is tiny, but it's very cute! I also made this baby owl, in the middle of the body, I changed the "single crochet" to "single crochet black loop only" and also at the top I changed it to "double crochet" to make it different looking than just an ordinary amigurumi, I like the look of different stitches together. I put a pair of 9mm owl eyes and sew on a beak and called it a lavender baby owl! :)

Hulk the frog

I spent a few days to crochet this frog. It's not as easy as I thought! I mean it's easy to crochet each part, but to make its eyes like frog isn't that easy at all. I have positioned them in different locations, but they made the frog look like angry mob! haha! So finally I have placed the safety eyes in horizontal position and they look more friendly and realistic looking that way. Anyway, I am still learning how to make amigurumi looks cute, so this is not a bad try at all. Turn out after stuffing this frog, it look like the "HULK" so I am going to name him "HULK the frog". :P Pattern of this frog is came from Kristieskids from Etsy.
