My First Amigurumi!

I finally learned to crochet! I was visiting friends in Ohio last week and spent a good deal of time with my friend Becky's crochet books. Thanks, Becky! It took a while, but I finally figured it out! I'm happy to have a craft that's easy to travel with. I've tried knitting, but haven't been able to stick with it long enough to finish anything except a tiny ipod case. Making amigurumi suits me better because the projects are small, and they turn out so flippin' cute! I made this little fella from this free pattern. Mine's blue because I love blue penguins. I saw some when I was in New Zealand and Australia...see, they're not much bigger than the one I made!
