She made me do it

Amigurumi book
Ever since that Ubercrafty Virginia posted about her new addiction to Amigurumi, I have been thinking that maybe I should take up hooking as well. Tory started recently and look what she has already made. Then I came across this book while browsing for sticker-making supplies in Paper Source last night and I knew it was time to get on the crochet bandwagon.
American Lions
Just look at these lions with their yarn manes. So adorable.
Frogs on Vacation
And frogs on vacation - fun.
Sheep from a Wooly Planet
Tiny fuzzy sheep with little fuzzy tails - irresistable.

I'm sure I'll pick up this crochet thing in no time, right? Because if I don't I'm heading straight to Montreal for personalized Amigurumi lessons (and maybe some wine, apparently it helps).

Don't forget to get in on Tory's 100th post give-away by leaving a comment on her post.

I just taught myself to crochet with this book. Amigurumi!: Super Happy Crochet Cute. It was really useful and easy to follow. The thing I have a hard time with is keeping count. I made three of every body part for my first project.
I really love the book you have I just may have to get it.
