I’m not dead – wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a year since the last post (and I have done very little crochet since then)! In that time I had another baby, and you thought my productivity was down after the first one? Down exponentially after the second!
Still, we’re getting to a point where I’m getting a few evenings back. Soon we’ll hopefully be moving to a bigger place, and I’ll be able to unpack all my yarn. In the meantime, I did this for a friend, and while it’s not a Pokémon, it’s an amigurumi, so I figured I’d share it here anyway:
It’s a Hedwig!! Thank you Aldi for the kit ^_^
She’s cute, right? Complete with Hogwarts letter! I was so tempted to put something inside the envelope, as this one’s for a friend of mine, but didn’t bother in the end because I managed to sew it shut pretty tight and she wouldn’t have been able to get it out anyway..
The pattern is pretty good, although the shaping of the head & body was a bit weird (the increases weren’t regularly spaced, but I couldn’t work out an obvious front or back, or in fact any reason for irregularly spacing the increases). The other drawback is she won’t stand up by herself, but I think that’s a very minor niggle.
Hopefully this will mark a return to crocheting soon, and normal service will resume shortly!
