Last year, my niece Megan took up a new hobby. It’s called amigurumi, which means crocheted doll in Japanese. Since I know how to crochet, I decided I wanted to learn how to do amigurumi. I decided to do an amineko, or crocheted cat, for my first project since the pattern is free, online, and I love cats. It seemed like a good starting place.
I started my amigurumi on Sunday and finished him last night. I’ve decided to name him Smokie since he’s gray and white and reminds me of a cat I had when I was a little girl.
I ordered an amigurumi pattern book from Amazon. I’m really excited to make other things now. I can’t wait to give away some of the animals/dolls I make to all the little kids in my life.
