What is Amigurumi?

What is Amigurumi?
I learned a new word this week. Amigurumi is a Japanese word for crocheted dolls and animals done in a spiral in single crochet. Also, some amigurumi are knitted. And some amigurumi are not dolls or animals, but weird things like cacti and cupcakes. I remembered how to spell the word because it starts with A mi and ends with a 'mi' and has a guru in the middle. Ami-guru-mi. If you like cute stuff you'll love amigurumi.

Gourmet Crochet

I just crocheted 2 cupcakes for my Etsy store. Making food is a lot of fun.

On June 9, 2006, Jo from the American Cancer Society met with the angel Knitters and Crocheters at Micheal's in Buena Park CA to pick up the blankets, hats, scarves, purses and other items we had ready to donate. The donations came from drop offs to the Michael's store and also from the regulars that meet monthly to stitch all the squares together and to make new items. In the 6 months since the last pick-up, we had accumulated 145 items to donate. Lori keeps the program running at Michael's. It's a chain wide program however so check your local Michael's for details.
(Or google up their website).
