Bookshelf Peek of the Week #5

This week's peek..."Vanna's Choice Easy Crochet Critters"

Oh for the love of little critters! This booklet is filled with ten wild and wonderful animals hoping to take form with that yarn stash and shiny hook hiding deep down in your project bag.

What a great book for those new to Amigurumi. Instructions are easy to follow and don't have too many parts to deal with. You need very little yarn to complete these animals. Vanna's Choice yarn is wonderful to use for Amigurumi because it keeps its shape well over time and does not tend to pill like some other yarns may do. There are so many fantastic colors to choose from too.

If you are intimidated at all by Amigurumi, give this book a try and be encouraged. You can do it! You will be making your own Ami-Zoo in no time!

My personal favorites from this book are: the seal, the penguin, and the alligator. Next on my list to try are the walrus and the monkey.
