Crochet Ami's

I bought this book when I was in Utah. I just couldn't resist the cuteness of the animals! When Sam was a baby I went nuts looking for such a book to show me how to make animals for his first Christmas, but came up empty handed. It seems like now they are all over the place.

I made the owl and some eggs for my mother and was very happy with the way they turned out. I'm working on (interrupted by the Twilight books) a lion right now. The patterns are very easy to follow. It just takes a chunk of mental power to keep track of how many rows and stitches I've done. I absolutely hate it when I loose count. But the stitches are pretty basic and there is a little bit of fudge room.

Too cute! I think I need to buy the book! And I guess I need to learn how to crochet!

Hey Sarah, can I get a look at that book some time. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some of those patterns. They look adorable and it might be nice to make something besides afghans. They might drive me nuts (I hate counting too), but from the looks of it, they're well worth the challenge.

Great job on the owl.
