Craft Resolutions 2013




Hoorah  

I have achieved this year's craft resolution, which was to follow a crochet pattern chart & make more crochet items to improve my skills in this area and to show that there's more to crochet than simply making Afghan throw squares. 
I just discovered that Amigurumi  is the term for the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting stuff toys. The word being derived from the Japanese words ami meaning crocheted /knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll.

I need to continue practicing applying crochet charts in 2014, and make raised and motif crochet  items

Last year I achieved the goal of successfully making in-the-round socks and gloves.


I have another 2014 craft resolution, which for now I am keeping under my hat!


How about you?
