Crochet Crusade

I asked my mum to teach me how to crochet last weekend because I am dying to make some amigurumi creatures. I have been practising dilgently all week, and have discovered that I am far better at going in circles than I am doing straight rows (I cant help but knit when doing straight rows, so all my stiches end up on my hook! lol!!) My circular crochet tendancies are so strong that last night I completed a sphere, which is particularly exciting because it means I successfully increased/decreased stiches, and because amigurumi creatures appear to mainly be spheres and cylinder shapes!! :) So my crochet plan is this:

1. Progress from tiny green sphere to Small Animal, such as these

2. Work my way from Small Animal to slightly more complicated Small Creature like this

3. Evolve to Large Creature like a bunny or a monkey

4. And then eventually create my own Large Complicated Creature, like these

Thats the long term plan anyways, we'll see how we go!!
