More Crocheted Cuties

How's it going?  Are you hanging in there?

Up to your eyeballs?

All is well here.  I don't mean to scare you.

Just horsing around.

You're in for a real treat!

Puns aside, I thought I'd show you a few more cute crocheted things made by my daughter Michelle over the past several weeks.  You can see some other ones in a previous post HERE.

I don't know much at all about crocheting, so learning the name for this type of thing was even new to me.  It's called amigurumi.  And yes, I had to Google that.

I call them adorable!  She really makes it look easy-peasy (sorry, couldn't resist), but I'm sure it's not.

These green cuties were a fun little surprise for my birthday in August.  They make me smile right back!  The pod is only about 5 inches long and the happy peas are each smaller than a ping pong ball.  

After crocheting the first couple items, Michelle developed a preference for certain types of yarn.  Like most hobbies, we find out what works and what doesn't through practice and experience.

She named this sweet little elephant Potato Chip because of the shape of his ears.  I got to hold Potato Chip when I visited recently, and he is so soft but surprisingly well stuffed, so he's steady on his feet and doesn't flop over.  He stands near her window sill, keeping watch over the neighborhood.

This trout was requested by a coworker of Michelle's.  She took a salmon pattern and modified it.  I think she did a great job!

Her cat Brooklyn (aka Keaky) got first sniff of the ice cream cone.  He seems pretty nonchalant, but he's an elder statesman so has seen a lot already.  It takes a bit to impress him.

Or maybe he was just waiting for the cherry on top?!

Thanks, Michelle, for sharing your crochet creativity with me and the readers!

So cute! Your hand must be fully healed, yes?

These are very cool! I tried to teach myself to crochet once, but although I could go in a long line, turning corners was beyond me. :-)

Michelle is so talented! I crochet, but only flat things. I love them all, but the jellyfish really caught my attention.
