FINISHED PROJECT: Amigurumi Mushroom

While the holidays were crazy, I luckily had some time to crochet a little. I found this mushroom pattern on Ravelry, of course, and worked one up for Mark's mom to hang on her tree and I made one more for me today! I'm using it as a little purse charm.

I love it! I used good old Red Heart Super Saver for the red (in just plain old red) and Lion Brand Wool-Ease in a cream.. I can't find the wrapper, so I don't know the name of it. Sorry! I also used an F hook. I modified the spots a little (I didn't want to make actual circles) and just added a regular strand of yarn for the loop at the top, not a chain. I thought the chain turned out super bulky in comparison to the little mushroom. I'm so happy with this little amigurumi fungus.. I will definitely be making more. They do take a few hours, at least for me, because the stem gets a little hairy. Lots of increase/decrease BLO only action with a very small hook.

Before the little stem-y. The cap looks so yummy and lopsided!

And, actually... I made a little blog button with these images! I'm sponsoring the lovely Elycia for the month of January, and I made a little mini-banner for her sidebar, and I thought I'd share it here in case anyone would like it. After I post this, I'm planning on figuring out how to put this into my own sidebar..
