I told her it'd be done by Saturday. I think it's doable. Cross fingers.
I decided to give this rabbit a twist by giving her some cute little knee socks. I think it's going to be adorable.
I wanted to give you a working shot of what it means to work on a fairly involved crochet project like this...it means keeping track of multiple spots, and keeping them separated from each other. To do this, I like these little crochet clips. As you can see I am employing 3 at one time. This is about the max that I use at any given time. But as I am splitting the torso into two legs, I need to know my boundaries...otherwise you get one leg that's 1" round and another that 2" around vs two that are 1.5" round. See, nobody wants one fat leg.
I decided to give the rabbit rainbow panties...I think they're cute but they have wound up blending in with the flesh. So I am going to have to sew ruffles on or something to give it a little emphasis. I probably should have sewn a row of slip stitches, but as I am making this up partially on my own, I didn't think about it until I had sewn most of a leg...oh well. I'll figure something out.
Another Amigurumi book review:
Amigurumi World Seriously Cute Crochet by Ana Paula Rimoli
Okay, this book has many cute things in it, but they are in no way as detailed as "Amigurumi Super Happy Crochet Cute". This book focuses on tiny critters that can be completed in a few hours. So, a really good book if you want to bust out some cuties in not too much time. And there are some seriously cute things in here.
Get crocheting friends, it's a great hobby.
