Disney and Amigurumi Combined

One fiber-related skill that I've never pursued is crocheting amigurumi, but now I have a little starter kit.

Zootopia Amigurumi

Thunder Bay Press and Disney have come together in what I consider to be a very smart move to create the Disney ZooTopia Crochet Kit.



To be completely honest, in addition to knowing virtually nothing about how to create crochet amigurumi, I also had virtually no knowledge of the Disney movie ZooTopia.



So first of all, the movie sounds like a clever, animated version of what the world would be like if humans never existed and all sorts of mammals created a world similar to what we have today.  I may actually watch this movie now that I've seen a preview or two.

But for the Amigurumi crochet kit, I thought I'd do a "box opening" video, like they do with so many technological devices.


One of the things I like about this kit is that it gives you basic crochet shaping skills to be able to create many different shapes that can be used in any combination to create creatures far beyond what is described in the pattern book.

Current Crocheting/Knitting

I finally finished the Interlocking Crochet Scarf using fine kid alpaca in two different colors (if black and gray can be considered colors).


This scarf is a never-fail pattern for me that works with any solid or multi-colored fingering weight yarn.  It always creates a drapey scarf with an interesting fabric that is stretchy and fun.  I love this pattern.

I also started a new simple lace wrap using a simple mesh pattern


I knew when I started this project that it wouldn't be easy to get a photo of this project that accurately describes the color...it's a bright fuchsia...Madeline Tosh Merino Light in colorway coquette.  It's knitting up quickly and I'm enjoying it.
