I’ve found a new hobby!
Not that I was particularly looking for it, but it just jumped out at me while searching for a nice new pattern to crochet: amigurumi. Totally in line with the Hobbits “learn to relax” strategy: do something that is ultimately nothing more than pointless fun. Amigurumi is the art of crocheting (or knitting if you’re so inclined) stuffed toys using the basic stitch creating spherical and tubular shapes.
I’m currently working on a very cute little owl and last week created the most adorable little dragon. I’ve recently joined a website called ravelry, which is an online community for people who like to knit, sow or crochet. It’s full of patterns and handy tips and fun blether. I cannot wait to see what else I can make with this.
hmmm great… another way to fill the house with useless, dust-collecting objects.
