Ta-da! My first official crocheted amigurumi. Secretly I’ve been harboring the desire to learn how to crochet just to be able to make my own amigurumi army. Birdie is the first of many, I assure you.

Yesterday I stopped by the library and borrowed “Teach Yourself Visually Crocheting.” I’m a visual person so this book is great for me and made it easy to learn. I’ll admit that I didn’t read the entire book and skipped to the chapter about crocheting in the round and jumped around as I needed to learn the techniques for completing Birdie. But still, I’m quite proud of my ability to learn that way.

I saw this pattern at BitterSweet and thought it would be a great first project. I got better as the rows went along and ended up turning the birdie upside down since the bottom looked much nicer the the top. My mind still has problems grasping the shorthand used for crochet patterns but I suppose like everything it will take some time to get use to.
