Flower (owned by #2) is much loved to the point where some of his stuffing is escaping already. I do like it when the things I make are appreciated. When #1 found a new crocheted bunny by her bed on Sunday morning she told me I was the best Mummy in the world :-)
I wasn't expecting Petal to be be bigger than Flower - not all cotton dks are equal it would seem. 50g of Debbie Bliss cotton has only slightly less yardage than 50g of Rowan handknit (approx 92yds and 93yds, respectively) so I wouldn't have expected such a difference for a small project like this one. Especially as I'm sure both bunnies were made with the same size hook.
Hook :: 3.5mm
Yarn :: Debbie Bliss Cotton DK
I've another finished amigurumi knocking about somewhere. When I dig it out of the pit my daughter likes to call a bedroom I'll show it to you.
It's been a craft-packed weekend here, actually... as if a crafty party and 2 amigurumi wasn't enough, #1 was given a sewing kit for her birthday and she seems very keen on it so I've been helping a lot with that. You can imagine the kind of thing - giant plastic needles and thread as thick as a shoe lace.
And we've fashioned a dolphin out of a piece of cardboard and some emulsion test pots. This is for school of course. Why else?
