Pfew, I finished quite a lot projects last weekend and today. It was hard work, but I love the results. Only… I can’t show them yet, they are all presents, for a birthday, swap and a thank you.

What I can show you, is the work in progress on my crocheted Amigurumi cottage. I found the pattern on Etsy during the christmas holidays, and I fell in love with it. Now I’m making it as present for myself :-)

It’s not all going well though.. I didn’t understand the pattern at first (so one roof part is a bit odd shaped) and next time I will use acrylic yarn instead of the cotton I’m using now. Acrylic yarn is much smoother to crochet with, and you will get a more ‘fluffier’ look I think.
What’s coming next, is a green lawn and some bushes with flowers.

    Superschattig! En ach wat dat je het niet helemaal goed hebt gedaan: zo’n scheef huisje heeft juist z’n charme vind ik!

    Lief dat huisje. Enne ik heb even op de link gekeken maar hij lijkt er precies op!!!
    Ik vond trouwens op die site die vaas met bloemen echt geweldig, zo grappig…

    This is so wonderful. I always wanted to crochet something but the only thing that worked had been chain stitches. I love this house.
