YORKIE DOG FINISHED

  
Here he is finished and on display in the window.
Me thinks he should not be left there though, far too tempting for the claws of some other inhabitants of this house, I can see it now in tatters on the floor after just 10 minutes. ha,ha.


should you want to have a go at making one your self, here is the link.
It really wasn't difficult, just fiddly, but worth it in the end.

CROCHET YORKIE DOG REQUIRES LOTS OF PATIENCE.

I showed you in a previous post the crocheted parts of the Amigurumi Yorkie dog.
Well, he's been put together and now requires a coat.


 This is requiring time and lots of patience.
 
                                                                               
 Each tuft of wool/silk is going in seperately so that I can get the colour variation.
                

But I have this quirk that I don't mind fiddly things.  My patience is nil over lots of things but I can work on things like this for ages.

Hopefully the next post will be a finished Yorkie.
Now what shall I call him ?

NEW TWIST ON GRANNY SQUARES, A HINDRANCE AND SPOT THE CAT.

Here's a different slant on Crochet Granny Squares,  I shan't be making a blanket of these, lol, but tried one out and I'm sure it would make a lovely buggy or cot blanket.
I've pinned it on my speaker on the desk so that you can see it clearly.



Can you spot the cat?
The house next door to me is having drastic renovations and the back garden is at present looking less than desirable.  The cats love it, and Polly has disguised herself quite nicely thankyou.


And anyone with cats will know all about this.  Cat stops play......
Rowan has a knowing look in her eye, move me at your own risk..lol

BOXED, BASKETED, CUSHIONED AND NEW CROCHET AMIGURUMI.

We've been having a few sunny afternoons here and it shows.
They've been  littering themselves in the shafts of warm sunshine.


Princess has taken on the pose of a lion on a rock, legs dangling.
Notice the lace effect that we have acquired on the arms of the sofa. lol


Polly fancied the cushion on the floor.


And earlier in the week a cardboard box attracted a lot of attention
 Mr innocent eyes,  Rupert with Rowan the lady in waiting.


Come on Rupert, we want a turn, Willow arrives and has a sniff..


Rowan thinks this fits quite nicely thankou


And here's the beginning of a (hopefully) a Yorkie dog.

CROCHET ON ANOTHER LEVEL, UNBELIEVABLE !!

I can crochet and love it but this is just something amazing.  
I came across this lady while trolling through the internet and just had to share.


Can you believe that this is crochet ?


Aren't they wonderful.  The lady in question is Scots born but I think lives in USA.

Do click on this link and you can see how she does it in time lapse.  http://vimeo.com/41159734

Do a google on Jo Hamilton Crochet and click on images, you'll see more of her work.
