Amigurumi and Fair Isle crochet – the latest ideas

Amigurumi and Fair Isle crocheting have been two crochet techniques I have enjoyed working on for about the last month.

I made a 3-dimensional squid in a hat (with a moustache);

Amigurumi octopus

A hipster made me do the moustache….or so I will say.

It reminds me of Thomson and Thompson. Except there’s only one squid, so…..just Thomson then.

Then I properly learned the technique for Fair Isle crocheting (although it’s also called Fair Isle knitting. Doesn’t matter which one you use). So I did some simple ideas:

Then, I found some trinkets emptying out a drawer, and hot-glued that shit together faster than you can say “Why do you have a tiny cardboard Mona Lisa in a fake-fancy plastic frame?”

Mona Lisa Beetle

Kitsch + Kitsch = MEGAKITSCH. And I don’t even care.
