Fun book. Most of my life I've been a novice when it comes to crochet. Scratch that, novice isn't quite right. You see, until this past summer I'd only ever crocheted potholders. Four times. In my life. Half of which I never finished because I got bored. So is there such a thing as quasi-novice? If so, that's what category I belonged to.
That being said, with the help of this book and Amigurumi Two! I've made some pretty cute stuff for my kids and they actually play with all of it. No, really, they totally do. And they ask me to make more amigurumi animals for them all the time. When I get a few spare hours I can totally finish a project or two since the projects are so simple and the instructions are incredibly easy to understand. I love this book.
