Stashbusters #9-#11 Amigurami
Hello! As I am looking at my pictures, I realized I haven't glued the eyes onto my turtle, and I don't have an individual photo of my knitted bunny (lol)! Oh. I also forgot to take photos of the yarns I used from my stash. Oops! I created the snail with the intention of using her for "My Phonics" preschool mat curriculum I am working on, but alas she is TOO big. She is about 7 inches long. For my educational purposes, this won't do. From my little princess' perspective, that is just fine. I will have to make a mini snail. The turtle with the missing eyes (lol) is for my oldest son. He really wanted a cute puppy, but after my ugly cheetah I made for my second son, I lost the excitement to make a puppy. I might have to practice some more, but amigurami is not my favorite. The knitted rabbit is my second attempt at knitting. I found a really good tutorial at http://josoandsew.wordpress.com/tutorials/knitted-bunnies/. I made mine 15 stitches larger than she did. I think I will make one a little smaller than hers. It is very cute and a very good beginner project. Yea!
