Meet Amineko

Such a fun project!  I made this Amineko for Georgia using the book

I purchased the book a while ago but other projects needed to be finished before I could start this little cat.  It didn't stop this from being a much read book in our home in the meantime, The book so adorable as it has so many cute photos of different Aminekos having lots of fun adventures :)

So after reading this book for months
 and wishing and hoping for her very own Amineko,
Georgia finally has one! 
If you are wondering what the name Amineko means it is
'Crochet Cat' in Japanese.

I used Sullivans Coton-a (purchased at Lincraft) & 3.25mm hook the pattern is easy enough to work from if you have made anything in amigurumi before.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend
we are 1/3 of our way through our Annual leave,
can't believe how quickly the time is flying!
the children started 2 weeks of school holidays on Friday,
so we are looking forward to a few small trips!

little urchin....

I've wanted to make one of these 'little urchin' covered stones for the longest time.... and finally made one last night as I needed a break from my two big projects and as a reward for finishing another smaller project (which I cannot show you just yet).

Pattern was designed by Margaret Oomen and is so easy to follow,

it can be found on

Ravelry and also on the Purl bee blog

I hope you are having a wonderful week,

we are enjoying our annual leave at the moment....

so our days are full and we are making the most of the beautiful spring air!
