amigurumi animals

* If you can see this post, you’re viewing the new improved PlanetJune server! *

I just went to my mailbox, and look what I found inside (sorry about the photo quality; the sun is not cooperating today):

It’s a new book, Amigurumi Animals by Annie Obaachan! The book is very cute, and has lots of tips for how to design and make amigurumi:

It includes a menagerie of patterns you can make (with both written and charted instructions):

In the back is a gallery of amigurumi artists, and guess who has a full-page spread? 😉

Three large pictures, and a little blurb about me and What really cracked me up, though, is I even made it into the index 😀

If you’re an amigurumi beginner, you could do a lot worse than picking up Amigurumi Animals (and not just to look at my photos!)
