Yesterday (and today) my friend and I had a sleepover at my place. Instead of pillowfights, snacking and talking until we fell asleep, we... knitted.
Ok, we didn't really knit, we did amigurumi. Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting stuffed animals. The word is a combination of 'ami', which means crocheted or knitted and 'nuigurumi', which means stuffed doll (all according to Wikipedia, your best friend). It's a very popular form of art and it is ridiculously addicting. Am I not the kind of person that easily gets everything immediately, but even I understood pretty fast how it works. And it's really fun to do!
Because this crafty Japanese thing is on the rise, you can find patterns everywhere on the internet, from animals indeed, but also cupcakes, dolls and even chesspieces!
I am working on a pink chick right now and it's a very promising little project! ^^
My friend made me a cupcake last time and is working on a huge rabbit now! I can't wait to see it finished!
