PENNY IS DONE!
Sorry the pics aren't better. I'm working on a better set-up for taking pictures of my projects.
I was so excited last week when I got my first Japanese Amigurumi book from a wonderful etsy seller: ichigonopantsu. It took all the strength I had not to cast on a project right away. But I had another project I wanted to finish first. Once I dove into the book I came across several stumbling blocks. First and foremost, it's in Japanese. The counter to that is that all the patterns are in chart form. Secondly, I had to guess at the yarn weight and hook size. And not being able to read the instructions means I had to wing the toys construction. I think I did an okay job, considering. And it definitely won't deter me from making another project from this book, or ordering more books in the future.
Now I'm off to plan my next project. Will it be another amigurumi? Will it be a new pair of socks? Will it be a lace shawl, or maybe a felted bag? Will it be a dishcloth or scrubbie? Or will I just finish one of my many WIP's. I guess you'll just have to wait and see.
