Amigurumi. It's the Japanese art of crocheting (or knitting) little animal toys. Recently, I've been intrigued by the process of making these weird/cute little anthropomorphic crochet creatures. I've made some strange little things (see my shop, below). So far: a purple monster giving the world the finger and a one-eyed cat with wounds, stitches and a bird feather in its mouth. I'm currently working on a green little guy I'll probably name "Booger." Do I need counseling? Perhaps. I love making amigurumi, but I don't know how it's pronounced. Anyone know?

- I'm an artist and art teacher to grades K-8. Life is truly interesting. A year ago, I re-discovered my love of crocheting. I've made hundreds of items, from huge crochet blankets to tiny jump-drive cozies. It's a sickness! I keep thinking I will eventually get it out of my system. It hasn't happened yet. I can't get enough yarn!!! If interested, you can view my shop at http://creativehook.etsy.com
