yarn yarn yarn

I found a fab online yarn store today, based back in my old homeland of North Kent.
They sell a wide range of budget yarns for the beginner and amigurumi fiend like myself, but also do have some more luxurious options should you feel indulgent.

Postage is only £1.99 per order as well, unless you spend over £15 and then it's free!!

Please check them out and put some business their way:

Pensive WIP4

Bit more done. I was hoping to finish this today but I lost my mojo. Maybe tomorrow...

Mike the Crocodile

I made this little guy a while ago but forgot to post him. Mind your papers and books, he likes to nibble on them!!

Cuddle Bunny Finished

Here he is. He's very small but full of love, just for you!

Pensive WIP3

Bit more done. Now I am struggling terribly with the nose. It is currently enormous!

Hope I can fix this so it stops looking so odd!

Pensive WIP2

A bit more done. Really taking my time on this and enjoying it.

Yes, I know that her eyes are too far apart but I don't actually care. I like the way it looks and that's saying something for me.

Pensive WIP1

A new day, a new WIP. Will any of these things get finished??

A young woman this time in simple pencil on cartridge paper. Not happy with the right eye but working on it. She's very pretty so I hope I can do her justice.

An experiment...

I don't think I'm good at painting in acrylics at all. Actually, I don't think I'm good at painting in general. So it's one of my resolutions this year to try more painting to try to improve, at least a little.

So here's my latest attempt at acrylics. It's not finished yet but this is only a couple of hours work. Again, apologies for the bad photo.

Cuddle Bunny started

Another amigurumi creature, this time a cuddly little bunny I'm making for my mother-in-law as she is obsessed with rabbits!

Going well so far except for the ears which are proving to be the most evil things on earth to crochet. 4 in the round? impossible!

Sniffer Complete!

Here he is, finally finished. He took quite a long time but it was definitely worth it. He's the best thing I've made so far.
