    Lol yea anyone else here like to crochet? Im working on lots of stuff atm, ive got a sample quilt in the works and have a whole list of people wanting stuffed animals from me :) been crocheting since i ws little, but only last year found the wonderful world of amigurumi. I use the techniques and stuff but mostly make up my own patterns. Before that i only made blankets and bags and stuff like that... Lately havent been doing much and im way behind on some bears to send back home ( currently in the uk came from usa) so im trying to get back my 'mojo' as it were lol

    I really love knitting and used to make and sell one off designer hand knitted motif baby cardigans but now with work etc just haven't got the time. Hoping to do some next year when I can cut back on the work.

    Awh, I'm sure your stuff is fab! Hope you pluck up the courage and give it a go :)

    I've got some bits on the go too that I should really get finished (oh, to have more hours in the day!)

    Thats brilliant! Love your bears. I love amigurumi. Make up my own little patterns as I go too. I knit and other stuff too but crochet is my fav! Where did you get the base pattern for your bears? And for the little dresses your pink bears were wearing how did you plan the fit?
