And the book has arrived at a really good time. I have found it difficult to knit over the last few days, partly because I am tired and partly because my work has been really stressful recently, and I have returned home at the end of each day feeling unhappy and stressed. But the cheery quirkiness of Amigurumi Knits has provided me with at least some knitted entertainment over the last few days as I have flicked through the pages to enjoy the pictures, and eventually I found enough of my knitting mojo to cast on.
The pattern is well thought out and clearly written, with step by step guides to any unfamiliar techniques. Perhaps my favourite thing about the pattern so far is that the legs are knit lengthways, a detail that I love simply because they absolutely fly by - I finished all eight in the time it took to watch a movie.
I'll look forward to knitting the rest of this little guy and piecing him together, especially as I hope that it will bring my knitting mojo back for other projects.
