I love Ami's.

I did two octys a while back. (one orange(WW Yarn) one pink in a finer yarn and a size smaller hook.

there cute. I named one Mr. Vlhad Octy and his daughter Morbidella.

LOL Great names!

I made an octopus once but he was my first ami and apparently I didn't attach the legs well enough. I took him downstairs to show my in-laws and they were too rough with him so now he is more like a sextopus! LOL
Sextopus. rofl. XD

And I like the name Morbidella. ^__^

I ended up taking a break from the robot to work on some smaller projects, but I really need to work on it some more. It drives me nuts when I work for a long time on something just to have it look all wrong, which is what happened with the robot's legs. I made one, but I'm going to start over because the design just doesn't look right. >__<

This. Rocks.

I've never done amis, but I've been crocheting for years! I've been wanting to try amis for a long time; maybe this thread will be my inspiration! ^^
I started my ami for the ami-along today (one day early, shhh!) but it is half sucking. I may have to rip some of it back and start again. sigh.
Sextopus. xd

You can do it, Reana Kay! Amis=awesome!

My first attempt!
It was supposed to be the cupcake that's on the tutorial on the first page, but I didn't understand the instructions, so I just made a spiral. But then the edges kept curling circular-ish instead of lying flat. D:

So I had to change my thing. And then the magic ring thing wouldn't work for me anymore, so I couldn't do arms and feet. DD:

This is the first thing I've ever crocheted though.
I spent all of yesterday night looking up how to crochet and finding my mom's old yarns she used to knit me stuff, but I really can't understand like ANYTHING in any of the instructions.

I can only do a chain stitch and a single stitch-- or at least I think that the way I'm using is single stitching!
That looks great, especially for your first try! Stick with it! biggrin
Welcome, Reana Kay! :3

ianthine, your first cupcake looks a lot better than my first one!

I got the slip stitch and single crochet confused... I have no idea how I managed to do that... so I had a cupcake made of nothing but slip stitches.... lol

So keep with it!

I haven't even figured out what to do for the amigurumi-along! I have plenty of projects that I need to get working on (I'm planning on giving some 'gurumis as Christmas presents), but I haven't chosen one to start with yet. >__<

Thanks for the great links on the front page smile I've been wanting to get into this for a while. Thanks biggrin

Your very welcome. ^__^ After having done so much searching of the 'net in my own search for amigurumi stuff, it was no problem to share my findings.
