Really looking forward to doing the fish when I have time. With 2 yr old grandson at my house right now I don't have a lot of time to crochet but I do love Amigurumi and have made a few in the past. Looking forward to keeping up with the CAL. First time using this forum even though I have been a member for awhile so I'm kinda confused on how to post without a quote...a stand alone post so to speak as well as upload pics of finished objects and to share.

Humor:

The detail on your bunnies really give them a polished look.  I'm very impressed.  Your grandkids are very lucky!  While my grands like playing with and helping me decide on the next ami, detailing the little critters is not my strong suit.  Actually, it takes me just as long to piece everything together as it does just to crochet them.  But I enjoy seeing how they all turn out and it keeps me busy on these snowy days.  Thanks for sharing the pics and for all of your pointers in these CAL's.  They have been very helpful.

Make everyday a day to Crochet!

Adorable!! My kids used to stand around waiting for me to finish so they could grab it.

They'ld fight over whose it was! Kind of like I was with my siblings and my Mom's bread

coming out of the oven!  :o)  I never was too good a cook but I sure love a good pattern!

Where'd you get the pattern for these cute bunnies?  You did an awesome job!!

 take a deep breath and relax. If you have read through the previous posts, you will have seen that you need to click on the link in the first post: 2012 Amigurumi Calendar Page. When you get to that page, about 1/3 down the page is a large red button that says, "Download Now!" Click on that, and you get to the pattern.

The above post that I copied and pasted helped me find it.

I don't feel so stupid anymore as I am not the only one who struggle to locate it!! :o)

I kind of think it should be a little more obvious and user friendly to find but I'm over the hill

and maybe not as detail oriented as some. On the other hand I willingly admit I'm a crafter not

a computer geik!! :o)

I just posted a link to the monthly pattern on the home page. It is below the Welcome and the image of the Amigurumi calendar. You can also always find the page by choosing 2012 Crochet Me Calendar under the "Events & News" tab at the top of the page. I hope this helps!

Daring to be different, I have a variegated cotton (whites, yellows, oranges, browns) for my Pucker, sort of a koi effect. My 7 year old son actually chose it, over a different brand with a color called "orangeade". I'll try that color next, perhaps, since I think I'll want to make a whole school of these!
