Lion Ami

Yesterday was my first afternoon alone with Elijah at school and Sammy taking his nap (Josh has been home the last three school days either sick and/or working). It was nice to have some quite productive time to myself. I used the time to finally finish my little lion. I'm very happy with the way he turned out and excited to start another animal project.
Today I ran out to a few garage sales. It was slim pickings due largely to the colder weather but I was able to find a few things for Christmas, a Blue's Clues cake pan (heaven sent!), and gobs of yarn. The lady was selling it 4 balls/skeens for a dollar. I went nuts and grab 12 just imagining the cute little ami's I could make with it. I'm tempted to go back and get more!
Last night I was searching to see what free patterns I could come up with for more ami's. Some of the patterns had Josh and I laughing, they were so ridiculous.
Here are a few of the links that I found. Some are cute patterns that caught my eye, others are link lists of their own.
Amigurumi a great list of free patterns
