My new love....amigurumi!
(I think it's Japanese for little crocheted things)
My grandma taught me how to crochet some basic stitches, a granny square and a zigzag afgan. I never did much with it and never learned how to read patterns. My sister taught herself how to crochet the cutest little critters and in turn taught me. They are surprisingly easy to make. I'm thinking there will be many more of these goofy little things appearing in the near future!
