Work in Progress Wednesday; Amineko, Red Angry Bird, and Swirly Twirly scarf

As I sit here writing about my works in progress, It occurred to me that at times I take what I’m doing for granted.

I’m truly thankful that I’m healthy enough to do make the crafts that I enjoy, and share my love of crafts with others. I rarely keep the things I create.

Crochet Amineko MarigoldnMario 1

Crochet Amineko

Marigold (gold amineko) seems upset. She has her back turned away from Mario. My daughter named the crochet amineko’s.

The gold Amineko was featured in last weeks Work In Progress Wednesday. The Amineko in white, is my work in progress. I made the white Amineko different from the first, since I crocheted a sweater onto the Ameniko. I really love how it turned out, and am pleased with my crochet progress.

At the time the above picture was taken, I still needed to make the legs, tail, ears, and mouth.The white crochet amineko is now complete (for the most part).

Crochet Angry Bird 1 04 18 12

Crochet Red Angry Bird

My five-year old nephew adores Angry Birds, and so I’m making his favorite Red Angry Bird.  My progress came to a halt, because I realized I needed to purchase eyes. Whoops, once I visit the local craft store, I’ll finish crocheting this Red Angry Bird.

Yesterday, I wrote a post linking to the free Angry Bird crochet patterns I’ll be using. Stop by, and snap up those free Angry Bird Crochet patterns, that crochet users have offered for free.

Crochet Curly Scarf 2

Crochet Swirly Twirly Scarf

I’m making this scarf for my daughter….

Yesterday, I started working on crocheting a swirly twirly scarf. My inspiration came from this swirly twirly scarf.

I changed the stitches used, and used an N crochet hook. I already have ideas for the additional scarves I’ll make, but I’m pleased with this. I’m still new to crochet, perhaps been doing it for about five months, but I’m having a lot of fun.

This scarf is almost complete. Yeah!

I combined two different types of yarn for this project. The cream colored yarn glimmers, and the pink yarn has pink metallic thread woven into it. This gives the scarf a sparkly effect; it’s a shame I couldn’t capture that look with the pictures I took.

This scarf was made for my daughter; she’s loving what I’ve done thus far. I had weaved a light pink ribbon into it, but I do believe I’ll take that out and use another ribbon?

This is the first scarf that I’ve crocheted, and it’s given me ideas for Christmas gifts, and so I’ll be playing around with different types of yarn, and adding beads to some of my creations.

Since I don’t have much left to do with these projects, they should all be featured in Finished Object Friday.

Haha, I love the personalities you’ve assigned to the dolls! I’m certain they will inspire endless hours of imaginative play!

I love the look of your second Amineko—his striped “sweater” looks grrr-reat (…for some reason I just had to do the Tony the Tiger voice there.) I’m hoping to do a second one sometime. 😀

The scarf is gorgeous, too, the two yarns look good together, and I love the idea of the ribbon!


Amineko is looking great so far, I love his stripy jumper!

Lovely Amineko!
I’m reading this with a sick baby in my mei tai, and thus cannot do any craft today.
