A-Z Challenge starts today. Come join me as we travel through the alphabet learning all there is about knitting and crochet.
Ami (ah mee): Japanese for knitting or crochet; nugurumi (noo ee goo roo mee) Japanese for stuffed doll. (source)
Amigurumi: The art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals or anthropomorphic creatures.
The blue monster is my favorite. Have I knitted an amigurumi? No, not yet, they are on my list of 'must knit items'!
Interested in creating these adorable creatures? Try this website. It has a great tutorial on types of yarn to use, stuffing, embellishments and helpful book to get you started on the road to amigurumi!
P.S. Thanks Arlee Bird for starting the A-Z challenge!!
