Last year I had great fun making this monkey a couple of times:-
and also found this Japanese cat pattern was a joy to make..
Flickr is a great source of inspiration, there are a couple of Amigurumi groups showing the most amazing work - I'm always on the look out for more boy orientated toys too - this dragon is amazing, and this book contains some interesting cretins, like the lobster in my header picture. I want to make a few little amigurumi creatures for the charity craft fair I've a stall at in November, but need some small ideas that will make up quickly. I'd love to hear if you have the Amigurumi bug too, and what you are making xx
