Hamster and Octopus
I thought I would try my hand at those amigurumi animal guys I've been seeing around, especially since it is almost summer and getting too stuffy to make scarves and whatnot. These are the first two dudes I made, from patterns in a couple books I found. The hamster was the first one I made, and I forgot to put the mouth on before I stuffed him, so his mouth is a little jacked up looking. His hat looks pretty sweet, though.
I will probably make a few more from patterns, until I get the hang of the shaping/increasing and decreasing business, then I will try to make up some of my own.
