Today I finished a piece of crochet that I should have finished 5 months ago (sorry Tim... I'm a bad sister-in-law). It's amigurumi, and it is a fictional creature called an Alot. It was the first real piece of amigurumi that I designed, it is based on a picture from someone else'sblog...
To understand the whole principle behind the Alot, you're best off reading her blog... but it's a creature created to get over people's bad usage of the term "a lot" making it into one word "alot".
So, my brother-in-law asked me to make him one (well, 3 actually), but I had to design it first, as strangely, figments of peoples imaginations don't come with crochet patterns.
So, Alot number 1 got made just fine and went off to his new home. Alot number 2 stalled... all the pieces had been made, but they sat in a bag for 5 months when I moved house. Last night they all got put together, and today the Alot was posted on it's way to Tim for his
This was the first attempt, which I love... I am so proud of him.
And this is Alot number 2. I am still not happy with his head, I think it's too big, but I will get it right for v3.0
