A little update

Tomorrow I’m going to Switzerland for a week. To go hiking and enjoying the beautiful Alps! For the evenings I’ve planned to finish the little crochet bear and the pattern, so I can post it as soon as I’m back. I promise!

Here’s just a picture I took a year ago, of my second Amineko (pattern by Nekoyama), the cat that got me addicted to amigurumi.

Amineko

The first big amigurumi I made was an Amineko. When browsing online for cool patterns this funny cat kept reappearing. I liked him a lot. He was in all sorts of colours and photographed in funny ways at all kinds of locations. I needed one too! After crocheting my first Amineko I wanted to make more….of course, and also found out the designer of the pattern, Nekoyama, had made a book about him called ‘Hello my name is Amineko’. I bought the book online and love it very much. If you like books full of pic’s and crocheting, this book is perfect for you! Nekoyama thougt it was cool that when people make Aminko’s, they take pictures of him in special places and post them on the internet. I didn’t have a blog at that time but did take the pictures. Now I can finally post them on a suitable place, my first blog! In honour of Nekoyama and Amineko. (In Japenese ‘ami’ means crochet and ‘neko’ means cat).

The first one!
