In February we had the penguin theme in Estonian Amigurumi Club. Everybody made penguins (this is optional of course!). As I had wanted to make a penguin for some time, I felt this was the right moment to try it out. You can see my first attempt standing in the front. I wasn`t completely satisfied with it, so I tried another version as well. The two penguins standing in the back are basically the same, I only tried different yarns. The gray one is made using wool and the pink one is made with cotton. I asked my Instagram and Facebook fans which one they like the most. I haven`t counted their answers yet, but it seems like there are mostly wotes for the gray penguin and almost the same amount for the penguin on the front. Some people also suggested I´d use the body of the gray one and the head of the front one :)
I want to continue with this design as soon as I am back from a small holiday to give my body and mind some rest. And after finishing a special Easter design :) We`ll see what comes out of my penguins in the end!
Made this little mouse using my Silky spring mouse pattern. Instead of silk yarn I used pure alpaca wool. It gives such a nice hairy surface. I felt a cosy scarf would fit him better than a lace collar. So I took some leftover yarn and made a tiny scarf which is fastened with a button. Looks awesome!
I am happy to add a new design to my amigurumi pattern collection. It`s Mystique the Fox. Remember, I blogged about her back in December. Well, I was so pleased with this design and the yarn and everything, that I didn`t change a thing. Simply wrote her down and made step-by-step photos.
So now she is available to all of you :)

HAPPY VALENTINE`S DAY TO ALL OF YOU, MY DEAR CROCHET FRIENDS!
I wanted to celebrate this day with a new free pattern. Here it is! A little friendly duck. As the Easter is soon here this would be a great home decoration to bring the feeling of spring into your homes. Of course it can be a toy for babies and toddlers. And why not a cute keyholder for your adult friends.
Enjoy the free pattern!
A new teddy bear has born. I carried the idea of him a couple of years with me. Actually this idea was about the construction – how to make the ears and paws. The rest was improvised as I went and followed my intuition.
So far I have made two examples of this teddy bear and my technical skills are slowly improving. Will need to work a bit more before publishing the pattern.
So, here he is – Valdur the wise bear.
