My very first amigurumi... as promised. Friday after exams, all I wanted to do was begin crocheting these adorable little Japanese-inspired animals. This first cupcake was my learning trial, courtesy of Nimoe's blog (http://nimoe.wordpress.com/2007/12/16/amigurumi-cupcake-tutorial/). While it doesn't quite look as good as her work, it was my first and I learned all about the techniques necessary. My animals have definitely improved in quality since this; I have definitely caught the bug.
