Ziggy and Boing!

See what a loyal blogger I am, even in this heat?! Next, I might even tell you what i'm doing, haha. Anyway, today features the patterns of the lovely Clare Taylor, of Quilty's Corner. These two little critters are sooo adorable, and really easy-looking, if you ask me. I've yet to figure out what they are besides cute. I THOUGHT they were owls, but several others who help me pick patterns to post have offered up kitty, and totoro, to name two.

Anyway, knit these and figure that out for yourself! Ziggy is the bigger one, Boing is the smaller one.

Oh, and I hear there's another on the way to this owly. . . erm. . . kitty. . . uh. . . totoro family. So, when that one comes live, you can hear about it here! (Or, just read Clare's blog. . .)

So, I haven't done much crafting since this horrid heat wave hit my area a few days ago. Time has been spent reading or vegging in front of the fan, napping, or hanging out with my boyfriend (who has been blessed by the air conditioning gods.)

Once I get some summertime yarns, though, I'm SOOOO going to make this camel. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, open the pdf, and look at it! It is pretty sweet, and you can thank the nice Aussies down at YARN magazine for this sweet addition to your 'chives. Hurry and save it quick, though, because it's a limited time thing!

Some of their other nice patterns are here to stay, though, so check those out! Also, I would buy some back issues, too, because they look pretty sweet. Only 11 dollars if you're an aussie! (For poor little me in the US, it's 16 dollars! Thank goodness we haven't yet dropped below the aussies. )

Anyway, I'll be staying cool if you guys will.

So, A new month, a new knit amigurumi pattern! Here's a cute little love bug created by my favourite, Raynor. Why's the Knitted Toy Box blog my favourite, you might ask? Well, because it posts amigurumi patterns so often!

Anyway, this little bug is too cute! It's the knitted version of this crochet pattern, which is totally cool with me.

Oh, and happy June! It's my birthday month, along with graduation! Hooray!
