three little pigs


Behold, the latest amigurumi project finished, three little pigs.

The crocheting of them was a reasonably quick job. The assembling was not. In fact, I'd say that it was the most boring, time consuming, tiny pieces sighworthy nuiscance so far. I can't see myself making any more tiny amigurumis with even tinier details that has to fit at a more or less exact tiny place. They may look cute and quirky now (and tad wonky), but really, to get here was definitely more pain than pleasure. Conclusion: not my cup of regular amigurumi tea.


What started with 15 little crocheted pieces (six of them stuffed), 


add three pair of eyes, button noses and perky bows
became three little pigs with different personalities.

Pleased to have finally finished the triplets, somehow it feels like it was a long time since I did that "finish some small project every day" thing... Which isn't true, there are always little tiny things made, accomplished, if sadly not made in yarn and such, but there have been, a shawl, more socks than these, magical neckties and more in the pipe to come. But still, I would love to be able to spend as much time crafting, knitting, crocheting, sewing (add jewellerymaking) as I did during those lovely weeks of Christmas - New Year's... Ah well.

Happy crafty weekending!

Awww so cute! I hope I could do that but pretty sure I'll fail so I'll let the experts like you do it xD xx

I've always wanted to learn how to knit and crochet and even though I was shown how to knit, I just couldn't catch on permanently. I admire anyone who's good at it - especially during winter and people are making amazing scarves.
