  1. Wow, they are so cute! I can't imagine how it's possible to knit something so small with all those color changes and ornaments!
  2. Here is the octopus for 2 weeks old Lena, my friend's first child
  3. Graduation afghan is wonderful! The crazy colors are perfect! I've just finished the big octopus today - well, not so big, just for a newborn baby, but bigger than my key-ring octopi I wonder if it's an Octopi Year for me? I make other projects, but I've made many many many octopi.... Kids have fun
  4. It's cute! My mum told me there were popular poodle bottle covers (almost half a century ago, because I don't remember them ) like that - just instead of a ball for a head you make a tube to cover the bottle. I like your poodle too
  5. Probably it's a new kind of bird - a crocheter bird. She couldn't make a nest without a hook, so you could either make a nest for her or leave a small hook... Lucky her to have you!
  6. Beautiful! It's so delicate as the colors change!
  7. Beautiful! They will make great gifts!
  8. It's beautiful!
  9. They are beautiful and so great of you!
  10. Thank you very much. Your words warm up my heart and motivate to go on, because it's not easy to be a teacher nowadays... Kids' appreciation of crocheted toys is both the challenge and motivation for me too
  11. ....well, then you probably know the consequences... Some time ago some Special Person gifted me three books from the series "if you give...". My daughter loved them. I had a mouse crocheted for another book and I used to present the story to my pre-school kids (I teach them English). They enjoyed it a lot and couldn't wait to see the moose book. I was very busy and didn't have time to make the moose, so I took a moose toy from my daugter's shelf. I was surprised because the kids were DISAPPOINTED and told me: Why don't you have the crocheted moose? Why didn't you make one??? I didn't realize they could notice the difference and appreciate something hand made, something different. I told them the moose was too shy to visit them and I'd try to encourage him next time. So I spent last weekend crocheting a moose... The pattern is by Sharon Ojala - Amigurumi To Go. It's free and you can find it here: http://www.amigurumitogo.com/2015/06/amigurumi-moose-pattern-free.html Of course, now the kids wait for a pig and a pancake...
  12. Cute team!
