Which came first the chicken or the egg?
The egg was first. After several failed attempts in the past I had another attempt at crochet last night and finally managed to make something approximating amigurumi. I made the egg first and then the chickie. The egg was acutally a failed attmept to make a white ball shape, but I like his little face. It was a toss up between making him an egg or attaching little gray fins to his pointy end and making him the ill-fated Zeppelin 'The Hindenburg', I was quite tempted because I could have make little red and yellow flames to go on his body too.
Anyhoo, they're pretty rubbish but for a first attempt at amigurumi but I'm quite happy.
