For those of you who don't already know, amigurumi is the japanese art of creating small crocheted or knitted stuffed animals. It has taken off a storm in the crafting world - and I have untold admiration for all the artists who carry the art off successfully. I am a knitter, but I'm afraid the art of crochet is totally beyond me! I tried it once and just ended up tying my fingers together, and despite later practise I have retired my crochet hook and decided to leave it to the experts. I do however, plan to have a go at the knitting version - at the moment I am just master of the jumper! But I will let you know how I get along...
In the meantime, here are some very gorgeous, very cute, very clever little characters, who are all looking for a new home...
